What does'' Collect'' mean as a way over the sea kind of Guy?..
I have managed over time to give quiet a few nick names and I basically only tell when pushed. none are rude but that depends in the eye of the beholder, sometimes, Hello Plonker.
My Twin Son Steve is about your age group and he is called..Yubbie...so all good...:

He's 54? Poor kid. lol Kidding of course.

As for "Collect":

Back when payphones were still around, you could have the person you were calling pay the charges, and that was called a "Collect Call". So, when you did this you were in fact: "Calling them collect".

I have no money, so don't call me collect.

It's a play on the old phrase.

funny that did occur to me actually...can remember using the Traditional Red Phone Boxes that where on the streets everywhere, certainly would be not the norm..to have a phone installed in doors in your home...Though my Nan and Grandad had a hardware shop in Shirley not that far from Croydon my birth town..they had a phone..just remembered that..smoked Laurier cigs in a posh red box not a package...
her son in law is still in Australia about 97 years old..Uncle Les,but dementia has hit him now...You can breathe now, well almost my Steve is 52 years this year...and still got the long Covid19 and is ok really overall...Plonker haha..you deserve that title...

He's a great kid too. I disc golf quite a bit in my spare time and sometimes make some noise with instruments. Lately, I've been stricken with the "Furniture Restoration" bug, so if anyone has a cure for that, please pass it on so I can have some free time back. lol

Seems like a friendly place for friendly chit chat.
Welcome.
What type of instruments do you play?
Furniture restoration can be quite exciting.
Your hobbies sound like fun so Iím thinking you must be too.

Thanks! Darn happy to be here.

A bit of everything, but mostly guitar.

I'm kinda fun. Not as fun as a barrel of monkeys, but just enough to give the illusion. I'm like a fun mirage.

Guitar is really nice.
