brings up an old grievance that was dead and buried and attempts to revive it to suit their purpose. For example, say a woman named Katie
dislikes the fact that one of her friends has bought something Katie
wanted for herself. Instead of simply stating
annoyance just about
that, she also
starts referencing a time
when they were in school twenty years
ago and her friend had kissed a boy that Katie
herself. That's a dusty grudge.
Similarly, when someone gets
personally annoyed about something
which happened many years
before they were even born and starts flapping gums about
it and getting
all irate; that too is a dusty grudge. For example, a black friend on a night out does
not take too kindly
to the request from his white friends that he to go to the bar. Rather than tell them to go themselves, he then journeys a bit too far off the freaking scale and starts huffing and puffing about slavery
of black people in the 1700's. Extremely dusty gruge.
woman- "No, Trina and Tash are fighting, so we can't invite them
to the party."
is the problem now?!"
woman-"Well, first it was because Trina asked Joey's dad out to the single parent's coffee morning and Tash had been saying she like him, but now it's about
Trina deliberately wearing the same colour dress but much shorter than Tash's to her brother's bbq in 1995."
man-"Fuck me, that's a dusty
grudge if ever
I heard one!!"
Fred- "Are you getting your ticket now, Blake?"
Blake "Yeah, why?"
Fred- "Could you grab mine too, please? Here's the money, I just
want to use the toilets
Dave- "Yeah, me too, if that's ok, Blake?"
Blake- "You know what
? Fuck this!! I didn't come
out to be the token fucking
slave!! Yeah, SLAVE. I said it. People like you are why the slave trade
kept going for so damn long!! I don't have to do things
for you just
because I'm black!! What
is it like ingrained in you white
folk that we're you're servants?! Well, no more!!! NO more."
Dave- "Jesus, Blake. Were you a part
of the fucking
?! Massive overreaction there, mate!"
Fred-"Yeah, I second that. All you had to say was "No." That's a seriously dusty
grudge you've got there."
