People getting caught out in a thunderstorm, and not shitting themselves about getting struck by lightning.

Sitting bolt upright after having a bad dream.

Any email, text or instant message is grammatically perfect.

I donít know if this happens in real life!!!!

Someone puts a Plastic bag over your head from behind and you are suffocating. Your hands are free to punch a hole in the bag and breath but you just wail  around struggling to breath and suffocate.

That's nearly as bad as running down the street on foot and trying to outrun the chasing car rather than ducking in sideways into a building or alleyway.

Statement + person's name + end of sentence + repeat statement.

"I think I have, Mike. I think I have."

"You've got no choice, Mary. You've got no choice."

I have yet to meet anyone who talks like this, folks. I've yet to meet anyone who talks like this.

Neither have I, Eamonn. Never have I.

Is it not the same as the way people from Armagh (maybe other areas too) say 'so I did' out similar at the end of every sentence.

To be fair, there are people who talk like Jim McDonald. So there are.

Car chases through fruit stalls. Are fruit stalls even a thing anymore?

Smoke a cigarette and actually look cool doing it.

Buy a plane ticket at the airport last minute.

Actually it doesnít. Drink driving in Dublin is one of the lowest in the country. Monaghan/Cavan area is the worst
