I haven't found any other threads about this sort of thing, but if there is, I apoligise.

Don't you just love England when everyone's out in the town getting drunk and later laid? Was walking home a bit ago, listening to some music (well, yngwie malmsteen is not just some music) and I look at this little KA driving down the road heading into town...I notice they stopped so I turned yngwie off (I think its my sweaty body that did it) and I see the driver open the door and he shouts at me "PRICK, ILL GET OUT OF THIS CAR AND ****ING SHANK YOU". Now im not the one to take things to heart, but this was a tad excessive don't you think? haha. Im 16, and they were in their mid 20's i'd say and there was 4 of them in the car.

So yeah im bored and have nothing else to do. Anyone else want to let me read what sort of things have occured during a saturday night such as this?

I'm pretty sure that this definition also works in the aforementioned story.

Nope. A Shank is a small knife which is used to stab someone in their kidneys multiple times. I have a couple.

I thought they were called shivs, and the action was called shanking

stupid chavs!!
a couple months ago me & a couple mates were walking down this backstreet & two chavs with fishing gear walked past & they got about 100/200 yards away & one shouted back "FAGGOT!!", & i didn't quite hear him, so i shouted back "what?" & he shouts "YOU'RE A F*CKIN' FAGGOT!!!" & i just said "yeah, i know!" & because you're not allowed to agree with chavs (because it's offensive to agree these days ), he shouted "YOU WANT A FIGHT?!", so i stayed calm & just said "not really, not at the minute" & then he said something like he was King Kong... that was weird & the end of my story

Meh... It's been the way in Britain for years.
It's one of the main reasons I usually stay home or go to my girlfriends on Saturday nights. Most clubs don't let me in as it is and as a non-drinker it's not exactly my scene anyway.

Although if you want specific examples then I've had somebody break a bottle over the back of my head from a moving car as it drove past while I was in London once and I got stabbed in the shoulder outside my local pub by a gang of drunk idiots.

I really can't stand going out at night, I can't stand the while British custom of getting pissed and violent at every occasion and idiots like the one in your story are just too much.

I remember I fell over once late at night (infront of a car and was almost hit) and a group of 20ish year old's parked on the pavement rolled down their window's and shouted "Wouldn't have happened if ya got an 'aircut" and then possibly threw some abuse ... it was fun.

This is why, in modern Britain, you should just keep your head down and ignore everyone and everything.
It allows you to maintain your illusions that people are, at bottom, decent.

shank probly derives from shiv wich i assume was coined in american prisions and was probly adopted into uk slang in some way
#28
Too try and clarify when chavs use the term 'shank' regardless of where the term comes from they more than likely mean stab with the knife they are pretending to conceal.

/\ there are appears to be truth in the above post.

Sad but true, some people just don't have limits, I was once insulted by a chav in front of my Mom, I figured there was some kind of unwritten rule about insulting family groups but apparently this guy had no standards at all.

ah well it happens

depends where you go

i havent had a bad experience at night, had this cool ass dude approach me once at like half 1 and we had a cool convo

all the things i have had was during the day. me and my mate were walking through town, us both lookin rather motley cruen 80s with skinnies and big backcombed hair and some chavs in a car drive past and shout emo's. now thats just offensive, if you're going to shout something shout mosher, not something as disrespectful and offensive as emo. lol

its the underage chavs who are funny.
last friday we went to the asda up in the longwell green area of bristol. well the amount of chavs hanging there was funny. my mate whos a big hockey player was started on by a chav who was like "i will stab you up blud" lol. eventhough there were likes security guards and cops there too.
stupid chavs.

It probably came via film or TV, and is used by people wanting to pretend they're well 'ard.

I was running back from the corner shop back to my house which is roughly 200 metres away, and as I was running a car full of chavs going past slowed down and drove level to me, they then preceded to wind the windows down and make incomprehensible remarks and gestures to me.

I then flicked the V's at them and they then shouted abuse at me and that awful "OHHHH YOU WHAT!?" at me due to being in shock of someone standing up to them and sped off.

Their brake lights went on roughly 20 metres in front of and I bricked it think they would beat me up, turns out they were slowing for a speed bump.

Bristol is a lovely place on a Friday/Saturday night. I'm not much good in a fight, but one of mates loves it so it can be dodgy, even in the local areas.
