: : Hello,
: : I would like to know about the expessions or phrases similar to this one: poking your nose into other peoples business! It is often said by people although with different options. Is there an original phrase like this?
: Not phrases but:
I AM impressed. I never knew that another word for "snooping around" or "sticking your nose where it doesn't belong" was quidnunckery. Until now. (Actually, quidnunckery is more like simple gossip-mongering, but close enough.)Thanks, Bruce. SS
