’WALK WITH/WID β€œ  this or that whn u coming or going’

Eg if u going to Town..

’u must β€œWALK WITH/WID” lil food whn u going in case u get hungry’ meaning to TAKE WITH you

or β€˜whn u coming by me, β€œWALK WITH” some sugar etc..meaning to β€œBRING with u”

Btw..whn u β€˜SUCK YUH TEETH” , why is it considered to be rude??

We couldnt do that in our home growing up..if not we would have gotten 2 slaps ..

I have this vague idea inmy head  that β€œsucking yr teeth β€œ is saying β€˜kiss my a$$”

I notice this is prevalent in Nollywood movies. Perhaps Indo-Guyanese copied this from their African-Guyanese. When we were in St. Martin visiting the market and  walked away after enquiring about prices and didn't patronize the vendors.... we got some long "suck teeth".

I told one of them... yuh rass can kiss meh ass not on the right, not on the leff, but right in de middle. Dem prappa rude eh.
