This phrase meaning “can’t be bothered”, seems to be gaining popularity. Here’s an example received today:
“Dude! You’re proposing a revolutionary model of human evolution and you can’t be arsed to check your spelling? No wonder everybody turned down your paper.”
(Incidentally this was from a Leftpondian, albeit one that hangs out with quite few Brits. )
I don’t remember it being used before about 10 years ago.
I’m also assuming it’s a London thing.
What do we think?
