I can't be ringed is a phrase used by small pockets of Scottish
People. It originated from Kilsyth
, a small town north north west of Glasgow
. The term was spontaneously created by a Kilsythian and has become somewhat popular amongst his community. Although not all agree with the term, it is believed to have the potential to become nation-wide at least! 'I can't be ringed' is an alternative saying for, I cant be bothered, or I cant be arsed
. The word was invented by the creator because of its more "Lazy" sounding psychological effect. it comes from the term ring-piece. Which is used to refer to ones sphincter
