Default For the Brits and Euros: What is a Chav?

So I was introduced to another british word over spring break from my cousins and it was a "chav." I had no idea what a chav was and they told me it was a troublemaker who wears hats with hoodies and sport coats.

So...are they just another form of wiggers?



Something tells me loot is a chav.

its filthy scum bags that hang out on corners- outside shops, in packs of like 20-30 and start trouble/fights with whoever they can and generally hurl abuse at anyone by themselves. our streets are littered with them, although there are many more the further north you go.... they usually wear cheap sports clothes. ****, they have many distinguishable features..... is this enough info?


basically every country have their own words to describe these people.

not exclusively asian. it applies to any idiot who tries to act like a gangsta, or just really tough. the Asians in our country tend to be either 1. oriental= more restrained when it comes to gang/yob culture and with more dignity. 2. indian/pakistan/wherever= all front and very influenced by black american culture but are less violent than the white/black scum bags(they also speak increadibly fast so that they constantly have to repeat things to each other)

Yea I've lived in London during the school year the last 3 years. When I said asian I was referring to South Asian. My friend said it was just south asians, but I guess he was wrong.

When you get a busy signal, do you say "engaged"? For example, instead of saying, "I just called Mike, I got a busy signal", do you say, "I called Mike and he was engaged"?

I saw it in a movie, interests me.

yeah, that's true we do say that, it does after all mean exactly the same thing.

its kinda outdated now thoe because all land lines generally go through to voice mail when engaged/busy.
