I was thinking today that I need to get some thermostatic radiator valves for the radiators, its getting near winter and its cold. I checked online for instructions on how to fit these and my eyes glazed over when it started talking about draining the central heating system and using X widget and Y screwdriver to do Z and W.
Hmmmmmmm, anyway, I decided to ask a plumber friend if he would do it for me as 'a foreigner' (cash on completion, no pesky VAT or invoices.) It suddenly came to me, where does the term 'a foreigner' come from? Is it common in other countries? Is it a regional UK thing?
I'm a Brit and I live in the north of england (if that makes any differance)
