What does ETA mean?

“Editted To Add”. When you’ve posted something and then realised you’ve forgotton something, you can edit the post – ETA is more commonly used if you’re editting a post quite a while after you originally posted.

"must have had the decorators in". […] Do you know the origin of that?

I don’t actually know the origin of it, but I do use it quite a lot. Maybe that should be the next discussion in The Dumb Americans Thread.

What are AS levels?

These are the exams taken by students in their first year of college. If you pass the first year, then you can stay on and do you’re A Levels in the second year. These are compulsory, as is going to college altogether. I don’t know about other countries, but education is only compulsory up to the age of 16 in the UK. But the government are currently trying to raise it to 18.

Lisa289, you still didn't help me understand what "taking the piss" means in reference to giving someone a hard time??

I do apologise – I knew there was something else I had to mention. If you’re taking the piss out of someone, you are making fun of them – usually by asking them to do derogatory things that that person thinks they’re above doing.
e.g. RACHEL: Karen, can you go and get me a chocolate bar from the machine?
KIM: Yeah, and can I have a frothy coffee?
HARRIET: Ooh, I wouldn’t mind a frothy coffee too.
[I’m using this example from Green Wing – for those of you who haven’t seen it, the four girls all work in the HR department of the hospital. Despite all having the same job title, they “take the piss” out of Karen and make her do all their little jobs and run errands for them. Karen actually has a very funny comeback in this scene, where she stands up and shouts “I’m sick of you lot taking advantage of me, just because I haven’t got any breasts!” Hehe, that seemed to shut them up for a while.]

Well, now that you mention it. I didn't completely understand your answer about AS level's. Probably more my fault than yours - I can be quite thick at times. It's not the same as A-levels you take in secondary school? You said they were compulsory, as was going to college altogether. I just want to make sure we're talking about the same thing - college comes after secondary school, right? College/University over here is not compulsory, it's actually quite an expensive proposition, since the government does not fund it directly. If you're lucky you might get some kind of scholarship, otherwise you're on your own financially.

I do appreciate your efforts at trying to explain this stuff to me. I have three kids who are going to post-secondary education and while the government does offer loans interest-free if you qualify financially as long as you're going to school, at some time they have to pay the piper. :eek

Oops, I meant that AS Levels and college are not compulsory!! College is after secondary school yes - I was 16 when starting college. Then University comes after you've done your most at college.

ETA - and AS Levels come one year before A Levels. These are both in college. Secondary school is for GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education).
