: : : Pain in the sitter
: : : Hello all,
: : : I would like to know the meaning of this british phrase. Anyone care to enlight me ?
: : : Thx,
: : : Jamie

: : It's the same as PITA. Sitter = what you sit with; aka bum, kiester, buttocks, bottom, derriere, gluteus maximus, ...

: It's a minor point, but none of the dictionaries at my disposal allowed me to look up "kiester." They all insisted on "keister," prounounced kiester. It originally meant a suitcase or sachel, sometimes a sample case. SS

It won't let me look up sachel either; typo for satchel. Mea culpa. SS
