The Irish - Northern Irish in particular - are absolute demons for using the word 'wee' in reference to almost anything. It can be endearing, but if used in the wrong context (if a context even exists for it), it can be maddening. For example, when using a chip and pin machine 'Put your wee card in there for me'. On the phone 'Give me a wee ring'. Worse case scenarios, 'He's had a wee car accident'. Life threatening, 'She's had a wee turn'. Not sure if any of you have ever had the 'wee' pleasure of experiencing this. What about you? Does your country use any unique phrases that you can share? ‘Wee’ – A reference to anything and everything regardless of its real size. If you don’t use the phrase at least 4 times per sentence, then you risk being mistaken as an outsider.
