Sleeket for someone sly or sneeky.  If my Ma was annoyed at me for something and was chasing me around our huge 10x10 kitchen she would call me a "skittery wee get".  Explain that on to me. :scratch_ones_head: :scratch_ones_head: :scratch_ones_head:

In the mid 60's I worked in the Gas Dept. Wages office in Ormeau Ave. The boss was Jim McCullough and one day during tea break he asked a fella called Jimmy Phillips to throw him over a bun. Jimmy threw it but Jim missed it and it landed in his mug splashing tea all over his desk. Jim's reply became a legend in the Dept.

If ever you came across a lorry reversing into a tight space, it was common for a (usually male) passerby to stop and try to help.  They'd "keep watch" and shout "Go ahead, back away!  Go ahead, back away!"  :D

Just as a wee diversion from the topic;  I once worked in an ABC Radio newsroom (like the BBC, but in Australia), and one day the on-duty newsreader was having an argument with one of the journalists.  In the end, the frustrated newsreader, in his best
plum-in-the-mouth radio voice, shouted "Eewwww, geeww stick your head up a dead bear's bum".
 
We all nearly wet ourselves laughing.  :D
