The Chippy

Saturday, April 29, 2017. Daily Brit Wit.

The Chippy: 

Noun

A fish-and-chip shop.

“She fidgets in the backseat of the cab, fighting off the urge to sprint the rest of the distance to the chippy. She’s already running late to meet her mates for their monthly get-together. Instead, she sighs and reminds herself she’s British; when does anything run on time?”
