Makes sense. Isn't EVERY British slang word some synonym for being drunk?

Chuffed: To be so British you invent slang words every 30 seconds, 62% of which are references to food. "chavs", and varying stages of drunkness.

It's all just a cock up mate. Perhaps he was rat arsed?


I was doing a chat with Microsoft tech trying to get my Xbox live account fixed. He kept calling me "mate" over and over. Once he finished helping me the conversation when something like this...

After 5 or 10 minutes of the tech calling me "mate" over and over.


Tech: Is there anything else I can help you with mate?
Me: By the way you know I'm American right?
Tech: Yes I see you're in America mate
Me: In America a "mate" is someone you have sex with.
Long pause
Tech: Is there anything else I can help you with?

chuffed = pleased, thrilled, delighted
 
2013-12-14 12:52:49 PM
Crunk?
 
2013-12-14 01:01:25 PM
I believe it's a synonym for "yiffed".
 
2013-12-14 01:02:04 PM
Chuffed = Tallywacker rubbed raw on the nubs of amputees.

"Chuffed" is a perfectly cromulent word.
 
2013-12-14 01:02:49 PM
You misunderstood him because of the accent.  He's "chafed".

I think that's when a swamp donkey gives your trades man entrance a jolly tallyho.
 
2013-12-14 01:07:37 PM
Chuffed = visibly pleased = sporting an erection.

Substituting "I've got a woody" for "I'm chuffed" doesn't change the meaning in most cases.

"Chaff" is a real word. It is the waste product left over when you thresh grain.

Having been born into the job of human waste product, he and all his relatives could probably accurately be said to be chaffed about everything they do.

British life is a synonym for being drunk.
 
2013-12-14 01:17:35 PM
It means pleased or happy ,as in : chuffed as fark or chuffed to little mint balls.
 
2013-12-14 01:17:48 PM
How's your father?

Ha ha!  I have a brother-in-law who would be genuinely unsettled by that observation; you may be sure that I will point it out to him next time he calls me "mate". :)

It's the sound made by trains on the Isle of Sodor.
 
2013-12-14 01:28:23 PM
I thought "chuffing" is what a dog does when it's suspicious and preparing for full-on bark mode. If that's not the correct verb for suspicious pre-barking, what is the correct nomenclature?
 
2013-12-14 01:29:31 PM
Well, they call a certain songbird a chiff-chaff, so chuff must mean to have sex with little feathered animals. But I'm just guessing.
 
2013-12-14 01:29:49 PM
pleased, happy...
 
2013-12-14 01:32:09 PM

Chariset: chuffed = pleased, thrilled, delighted


Yup. I remember seeing that word on ads at tube stations back in the 1990s.
 
2013-12-14 01:37:19 PM
Probably similar to "psyched" in American slang.
 
2013-12-14 01:39:16 PM
I used that word with my girlfriend yesterday.  She didn't know wtf I was talking about.

Chuffed:  not just pleased, but pleased because someone boosted your ego.

He had to chuff himself? He's a prince. Surely there's a royal chuffeur.
 
2013-12-14 01:44:53 PM
It means "tickled pink". Well, among other things.

I have seen or heard it used in a number of places.

Rex the Runt
Big Bob's favourite brand of dog food is Chuffy dog food. Dogs are very pleased to get it. The dogs are chuffed several times, often in the same episode. Big Bob is easily chuffed. According to Merriam-Websters, it means "puffed with fat". That makes Chuffy dog food even funnier, not to mention Big Bob. It was first recorded in 1957. That's about the time that everything became chuffed thanks to modern industry.

Karl Pilkington.
The Idiot Abroad is very seldom chuffed about anything except getting a new packet of his favourite biscuits (cookies).

The British love to exagerate and to understate. They exagerate little things, such as small pleasures and small annoyances and understate the big things, like winning a Nobel Prize or being a member of the Royal Family. They whine constantly about things that would be joys to other nations, such as beautiful little country villages or the English countryside, and pretend to be bored by major events and things.

This is part peasant superstition (if you say things are going great they will stop) and part aristocratic hauteur and snobbery (Oh, yes, that's some old thing I found in the lumber room. Painted by Rembrandt, I believe. Some crazy uncle brought it back from his hols in the Continent as a souvenir of the sack of Prague or something like that.)

 Etymonline has attributions of this word from the 1520's (meaning "swollen with fat"). "Pleased" and "displeased" meanings both have attributions in the mid-1800's. The oldest meaning appears to be "rude fellow", which dates back to the 1400s.

Paying lip service to the former colonies.

I know, right? Like classmate, roommate, teammate, bandmate, workmate, etc. Unless you are having sex with everyone in your class, house, apartment, basketball team, garage band, workplace, etc. Then I think the word mate might be easy enough to separate from sex. In the context used by the tech, it's pretty clear what was meant, making your vernacular clarification completely unnecessary and annoying.

Then again, I've never referred to my wife or any of the girlfriends I've ever had in my life as my "mate"... so maybe it's just me.

All it means is that you're very pleased and happy with something. why is discovering a slang word from another country such a big deal for you?

That's a genuine question, I've dealt with english speakers from all over the world, I've heard endless american and canadian slang on the TV and in movies. I'm not continuously suprised and OMGWTFBBQ when i discover a new slang word. I am usually very happy and curious to find out what these words are.

If you find a new word like chuffed, you like the sound of it and you think you have a need for a word with that meaning perhaps consider adopting it instead of running for the hills.
