chav; *hangs head in shame*
they dress differently from them usually in loose/baggy trousers, hoodies and band shirts and military style clothing (e.g camoflage patterns) - or girls may wear net gloves and stripey, brightly coloured tops and accesories.
they are often pretty intelligent in one way or another and are often mistaken for trouble-makers. though they are smart enough to know that fighting wont solve anything and therefore arnt actually the ones who start things - they are provoked. when a chav (insert other names here)says something they can usually answer wittily or with the use of long words - this can often confuse stupid people. many dont actually have anything against chavs but dont like them because they make their lives a misery with their constant taunts. they like to keep themselves to themselves.
chavs often dont actually know what the word means
'greebo': "oh i see, its now a crime for one to glance at another?"
chav: "oooo shes tryin to be cleva wid us!"
'greebo': "correction - i wasnt 'trying'" *walks off*
Chav 2 - lets go kick im in for being alive and not likin rap or any other mind numingly repetative music
Greebo - okay then *continues to walk by, minding own business*
Chav 1 - yer walk away u fukin pussy fukin goffik devil init
*4 greebos walking down a street, a chav cycles past, stares gormlessly at the 4 greebo's. the 4 stare back. Chav cycles further down the street. 5 seconds pass and the chav says "yer and wat ya fukin greebos?"
This concludes that chavs cannot stand up for themselves when alone
greeeeeebo. which then is usually follwed by
Other stereotypes can be used such as emo, grunger or goth but essentially to the chav mind it is all the same.
I could define the stereotypical 'greebo', 'emo' or 'goth' but really theres no need because these are just stereotypes and if you ever find yourself called one when you wouldn't necessarily consider yourself to be in that sort of social group then it is most likely because you are wearing an item of clothing that is black or hangs loosely on your frame, or if you have hair that spans between lengths of partially covering your forehead, to entirely covering your face.
To those hollering these names at you, regardless of whether they insult you or merely make you laugh at your assailant's lack of intelligence, the content of your character does not matter, they will simply assume that because you have hair that is not kept in trim with a lawn mower and that you listen to music with lyrics that do not include the words 'dawg' 'bitch' 'G' that you must worship the devil, be miserable with your life and want to end it pretty sharpish.
It is an unfortunate occurance. Because most 'greebos'are infact regular people with regular lives, jobs and aspirations. They are only targeted with verbal abuse because they are not wearing sports tracksuits, despite the irony that chavs do wear sportswear, they would do anything to avoid exercise.
So to anyone receiving rude remarks and words that these people don't seem to comprehend, even if they are shouting them at you, never mind. They are just calling you an individual and ever so slightly agitated that you are not a sheep like them, stabbing people, modifying cars that are deemed unroad-worthy upon purchase and giving pre-adolecents STIs.
I was just heading up the stairs on my way to my art lesson, second period in the day, three boys in the year below me where walking up the stairs infront of me. One of them says "get a haircut" after a little more walking in silence i thought to myself "hmm... i could form a witty response to that" but to avoid confrontation i merely grumbled a fairly quiet "no". It seems he must have been waiting for some sort of response or had just imagined one and retaliated because it's in his nature because he said "what did you say?" in as intimidating a voice as he could muster. I just looked at him with a smile and said "I'd rather not thanks." and then it began. He stopped on the stairs and gave me the typical crap. A mention about a fight, something about me starting. I was just thinking 'you stupid little twat'. so rather than turn around and take another set of stairs i carried on walking up the stairs without saying anything to him so he leant forward and tried to push me down the stairs. Really i thought this was a little harsh just because i disagreed with his judgement that i needed to cut my hair, and that i personally didn't even know this kid.
To cut a long story short after a little of him wrapping his tiny hands around my neck and a bit of me pushing him up the stairs i made my way to my art lesson. It was only then that i regretted having been wearing a big coat, a bag on my back and a folder in my hand, and dearly wished i could have thrown him down the stairs, followed by removing some of his more important organs and leaving him in an unattractive mess on the floor. But thats just how things go eh?
Greebo's are into any style of music from rock 'n' roll to metal to indie. They are generally found in Cardiff, Leeds and St Albans. The term greebo is used all over to describe anyone from an emo to a goth to an indie kid. By what I've heard from most people, they dont exist in Ireland or Scotland, only in England and Wales. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
The term 'Greebo' originally stood for 'Greasy Boy' as greebo's used to be associated with not washing there hair often. Greebos generally have long, unbrushed hair which is un-dyed and un-gelled.
Greebo boys wear baggy clothes such as jeans and combat trousers. Sometimes a checkered or studded belt is added. A 'Greebo Chain' is the most recognisable thing about a greebo. A Greebo Chain is a chain worn from one belt loop on the side of a pair of jeans to another belt loop. It is let too hang down as low as possible. These are often used to keep there wallets being stolen by Chavs by attatching it too the wallet. A skate brand t-shirt - baggy - and any shoes from skate shoes to nike too DM boots. Sometimes beanie hat too.
True greebo girls dress similarly too the boys. They wear baggy jeans and similar shoes. Girls often wear Vans shoes, not the slip ons on skate shoes, just the normal trainers. They wear boys t-shirts because they are more baggy.
The more often girls who 'claim' to be greebo are more likely to be seen dressed in regular clothes. Ugg boots and tight jeans. Waistcoats and dress shirts. Similar to late mod style meets skater.
Greebo's cant skate. They try and fail or are just not good enough to skate with the skate crowd. Yet they often hang around with skaters and BMX or Mountain Bike. Some people describe greebos as skaters who cant skate. This is partly true. If you are a greebo who skates, your not a greebo, your a skater. That is the fine line. Greebo's are similar too moshers too. They look similar and like similar music and hobbys.
Greebos are not emo! Greebo's will never wear a more than one or two black items at once. Greebo's will never wear tight clothing. Baggy. That is greeno. Tight? That is emo and occasionally indie kid.
Greebo's hate chavs. They are at a constant war with each other. Greebos will refer to chavs as 'Chavscum' and chavs will refer to greebos as 'Dirty Greebos'. Although greebos are often seen as trouble makers and look threatning, they are not. A greebo will never start a fight and will avoid one at almost all costs. Chavs are often seen as the victims because they will run home too there rich mummys and daddys crying about how the greebo hit them when it is always the chav starting the fight. ALWAYS!
The hoodie. The most important thing about greebos. A TRUE GREEBO WILL NEVER BE SEEN WITHOUT HIS OR HER HOODIE!! A baggy hoodie is what defines a greebo! Never white! And never tight!
Greebo brands are; Fender, Dubster, Quicksilver, Oakley, British Knights, Vans, Plain Lazy, No Fear and H&M. The main ones being British Knights, Quicksilver and Dubster because they are big in size and cheap. For the slightly richer people there is Vans, H&M and Oakley. They are more expensive and tighter fitting but are also seen being worn by greebos.
Greebos are into all sorts of bands. Underground, mainstream or stadium-fillers. Greebos aren't fussy. Some popular greebo bands are; Green Day, RHCP, Nirvana, Kasier Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, Blur, Oasis and Guns 'n' Roses.
Unlike hardcore indie kids and punks, greebos arent fussed about bands selling out. If a band is good, a band is good. Whether other people think that or not does not change the band. In fact, when some bands sell out, they actually become better than before. Take Green Day, a LOT of people hated American Idiot and said they had sold out. This is an extremely popular greebo album. I am not saying all greebos agree with this but from what ive heard, thats the general idea.
Greebos are not at war with emos. This is sometimes the thought that is broadcasted but they manage too live with each other quite happily... well, as happy as an emo can be I suppose. A greebo who cuts themself is not a greebo. They are chucked out of the group of greebos amd are rarely let back in unless they grovel, A LOT!! This generally means they become emos and then move on after realising what an extremely stupid idea it is too cut yourself. Some become punks or moshers or skaters. it is unlikely they will become a goth, metal head or indie kid, but everything is possible.
Greebo is, in some places, spelt with one O. No-body knows why, it just is.
Greebos will generally not like a greebo who has left them for another genre, even for a small amount of time and if they were never really great mates in the first place. It is a commitment to be a greebo, it is not a god idea to cut yourself or leave for another group, they will hate you forever. Some get forgiven and are allowed to return but this is unlikely. If the leader of a greebo clan changes genre, sometimes the other members will follow. If not, someone else will become one.
Greebo leaders are not actually verbally said, it just kind of happens. If you are in a greebo clan and often find yourself as the center of attention by a lot of the group and when you walk somewhere, without saying anything the others will follow, this means your a leader. Being a leader does not mean you rule on high!! It just means you have minor power over what the clan decide to do. Like for instance, if you said 'Lets go to town today', others would generally come. Unlike if you said 'Gather together all your money together, we're going on a camping holiday and there's nothing you can do about it'. Nothings gonna happen and they will probably be annoyed with you for saying it. natural consequences.
If your wondering, a clan is a group of greebos. Generally high in numbers because safety is in numbers against chavs. Anything from 8 people upwards is a clan.
I think thats about it apart from there is practically no posers in greebo. There just isnt any. Anyone who wants to be a greebo or join a clan is accepted. Unless there a chav or bully obviously. Whether someone is a geek or not does not decide whether they are in a clan or not. Geeks are widely accepted.
The only last thing is drugs. A lot of greebos smoke and drink. Cannabis is also often used. My advice is dont get involved with any of it apart from the odd pint for fun! Only joking! DON'T DO ANY DRUGS OR DRINK AND DON'T SMOKE!!! AT ALL!!! EVER!!! YOU ARE NOT A CHAV!!!
Greebo: Excuse me, ive got to go...
Chav: Yeah thats it blud, run off, wasteman!
Greebo quietly: Chavscum!!
