Mrs Scunthorpe (Gertrude to her friends), owns a trendy clothes shop in
a city centre which is very popular with Chavs—Britain's burgeoning
new underclass of anti-social yobs and fashionable, teenage mums. Thanks
to the recent introduction of the latest security system, which boasts
high-gain microphones as well as 360 degree, cctv cameras, utterpants
have left no knickers unsoiled to bring our readers the full transcript
of a conversation between two Chavs and the (female) shop assistant who
served them. To protect the guilty, the principal stars of this seedy
soap opera will be referred to as Darren, Sharon and Karen—names
that are sufficiently common among the Chav community to conceal their
real identities. Who am I kidding? Those are their real names. Serve the
little buggers right for not coughing up the two hundred quid we demanded
to protect their revolting identities.
Sharon: Cam on Darren, stop pissing abaht an’

Darren: Oim starvin’ ent I.

Sharon: Shut ya gob, an' just hold it an' wait while

(A smartly dressed, female shop assistant approaches)
Karen: Can I help you madam?

Sharon: An' ya can leave ‘im alone an' all, he’s

(Sharon picks up her bag and the skirts and swaggers off, muttering
under her breath)
Karen: I know you. You’re Darren aren’t

Karen: Wayne Richards, you know him don't you?
Darren: Yeah, he was well ‘ard. Where's ‘e

Darren: Sort of, like y'know...er, no...
Karen: Oh? Wait, she’s coming back. Is everything

Sharon (Dumping the skirts on the floor): Where’s
Karen: We only have a staff toilet, madam. It is not

Sharon: Look, I need a piss, now. Where's ya lav? I

Darren: You never said nuffink before.
Sharon: I ditn’t wanna go 'til I tried to do
up that size 10 skirt, did I? You know wot I’m like.
Karen: I’m sorry but you will have to go to the
ladies down the street, madam. It’s only just around the corner,
Sharon: Oh, for fucks sake, you stuck up tart. I need

Karen: Just leave the clothes with your boyfriend and
when you come back you can carry on.
Sharon: Fuck it. I can’t wait. Here, Darren take

Darren: Yeah. See ya, babe.
Karen: I saw you checking me earlier. Fancy me, do
Karen: Wayne told me you were a well fit bloke.
Darren: Y'wot? Well, yeah...thanks.
Karen: I like fit buffs. You want that other skirt?
Darren: Nah. She won’t try it. Says it’s
too tarty. It looks great to me.
Karen: Really? It looks really nice to me as well,
and it’s a 14. I might try it on myself sometime. Are you and
her really engaged?
Darren: Nah. She’s a lying bitch. We never done
nuffin’. I only gave 'er 'ead on her Mum's sofa.
Karen: Is that right? A fit bloke like you. I bet you’d
want more than that, especially from her in that sexy skirt.
Darren: Yeah...well...she's not like Stace, innit.
Darren (blushing): Anuvver girl I know.
Karen: Give me that skirt for a second.
Karen: Just give me the skirt—thanks. Do you
think it suits me?
Darren: Quali'ee. Yeah...well safe innit.
Karen: I think I’ll try it on now, just so you
can see what it would look like on me. Don't move.
(The footage pauses at this point on the tape)
Darren: Fuckin' 'ell.
Karen: (giggling) Sexy isn’t it?
Darren: Fuckin' 'ell, babe.
Karen: I can see you like it. Those tracky bottoms
you're wearing are not providing a lot of restraint, are they? Here—let
me help you...
Darren: (rolling his eyes) Fuckin' 'ell...
Karen: Don’t worry. It's a compliment to have
that effect on really fit bloke like you. Would you like a twirl?
Karen: How about if I pull the skirt down a bit so
you can see my thong?
Darren: Oh fuck...
Karen (Pulling Darren into a changing cubicle): Gosh,
you do like this skirt, don't you? Let's get those tracksuit bottoms
off you and see how fit you really are.
Darren: (groaning): "Fuckin 'ell, babe. Not 'ere.
Karen: Why not? Sharon won't be back for ages.
Karen (tugging off his tracksuit bottoms): The public
toilets are closed for renovation. She'll have to go to Debenhams.
Darren: Okay...Ohhh God....
Karen (pulling the curtain shut and kneeling down):
I don't swallow though, okay?
(There was a break in the CCTV footage at this
Karen (tucking her blouse into her skirt): Feel better
Karen: Want to go out with me?
Karen: That’s what I said. Tonight.
Karen: Okay. How about seven?
Darren: Yeah, safe.
Karen: What about Sharon?
Karen: (giggling) Alright, I'll see you outside Walkabout
at seven, then. Buy me a few vodkas and you may get inside my thong
Darren: Fuckin' 'ell... yeah. Watch it, she's comin'
(Karen hastily removes her arm from his waist and steps back)
Sharon: Dat's better. Fuckin' bogs was closed an'
there was a queue a mile long outside Debenhams, I only just made it.
Did ya know they was closed?
Karen (innocently): No.
Sharon: You look flushed Darren, are you okay?

Sharon: Has that stuck up lezza bitch been in yer face?
Karen: Not yet.
Sharon: Y'wot? Wot ya sayin’? Wot you been up

Darren: Nah. I never touched 'er.
Sharon (rounding on Karen): Why you wearing dat skirt

(Sharon scuttles off clutching her bag and the skirts)
Karen: Right. Seven it is, and you’d better
not stand me up, as my brother is on leave in a few weeks and he knows
where you live.
Darren: Don't worry, I'll be there. Just make sure

Darren: Yeah, buy 'em both, babe.

an abrupt end)
