Taking the piss

Sarcasm

Irony

Those are links to Wikipedia. If you click them, you will go to the Hoppypedia site and be able to read definitions and detailed explanations.
I know sarcasm and irony of course. I don't say taking the piss. We would say talking shit or teasing. I have never heard of taking piss. It doesn't make a lot of sense in the literal.

I admit I have msinterpreted some things that were said but I did not take myself too seriously because I never take anything very seriously. Remember, I am a person who thinks I am moving to the side of a mountain so I can have sheep.

You're not Welsh, are you?

Anyway, if you do ever make it over here, be sure to attend one of the English Forum events. They are a great way to get to know people, and the people on the forum really are worth getting to know. Especially the ones who sell cheese.

But I think we've buggered this thread up enough for the evening.

So, OP: Yes, you are probably worth more, but no, you won't starve on 70K (I know, because I had a very enjoyable bachelor lifestyle on significantly less than that for a few years).

This user would like to thank for this useful post:

if he is worth more, then it is a mistake to accept less (in this case far less). What does that say about the company who is offering him the job?
