Do you enjoy banter and p1ss taking ?

Well do you ? Of course everything has its time and place but how do you take it, badly or no interest, do you give it or do you not understand it, I have a family member who has a bit of Asperger who can't understand the concept of banter, being from NI that has been unfortunate for him as we here do like to ripp the arse clean out of it, nothing is out of bounds or sacred....some may say that is just uncouth behaviour, what's your take on it and is it the norm in today's society.

At my work it's brutal, you have to be able to take it. Can get quiet personal aswel but that's just the way it is. The last 2 people we had that started in the yard left because they said they were getting bullied. It's just the atmosphere, you have to be able to give it and take it or you won't last half an hour.

I like it, it's character building!

I think it's pretty natural in all walks of life? Maybe not in every part of the country though.

My life revolves around it, in fact it's the only thing to keep relatively sane?

The only problem with banter, is the ****s who say they like it but they have **** banter or get upset easily. These people can usually give it but not take it.

You obviously have different friends/work colleagues to me....there really is no boundaries.

These are the people I try to avoid... the worst thing about them, is that they think they have great banter and aren't easily offended

I can give as good as anyone and wil take anything thrown at me. Think some of this stems from being ex military, no boundaries at all.

Had to tone it down a little after I left as a I found a lot of civvies just don't get it, nearly got me into trouble a few times.

You could be onto something there 😉 But could people of Gaelic decent (Scots Irish Welsh) be more cnutish than the folk of middle England or is it a working class thing ?

Love banter, in the workplace and with my mates. All good fun and I give as good as I get.
Now malicious internet banter isn't banter at all. It's another thing entirely to poke fun at people they do not know personally just to get their kicks, especially when they realise that particular person is under a lot of personal stress.
It's childish.

Depending on where you are, I think theres a more brutal level to the piss taking and how far they go.

Building site/ Working on doors style banter big fan off. **** wank office banter by jumped up Sales type bell whiffs gets right on my teets. Actually quit a firm because the "Shanter" was so poor I couldnt help but threaten to staple my bosses face to a table!!

If I can hold a reasonably pleasant conversation with you at the moment, NFTW, how does "banter" differ in, for argument's sake, in London...Newcastle...Plymouth etc?
Interested to know your logic on this?

Forum banter from people you don't know is about as gentle as it gets, regardless of how malicious you think it is. The people who know me rip me for potentially having a serious heart condition that could kill me, and even that I consider fairly run of the mill.
