A person who enjoys hanging round in small-large groups on street corners and ask for 20p 'to use the phone box' or 'to get home' (despite it being popular knowledge that they live a few yards away). They often cease their actions if you outsmart them by calling them words like 'torglodite' in which case they simply say 'aw brass' and walk off.
Typical townie - grunger convo:

Townie: Eh wot come 'ere
Townie Ah blad set me 20p to use the phone box
Grunger: i dont have 20p
Townie: i KNOW u got papes, jump up and down blad.
Grunger: .....
Townie: ehhhhhhh brass wot phones u got?
Grunger: walks off muttering 'shut the f*ck up

usually full of racist bullshit, which is pretty ironic when the people they idolise are black.
The funniest example i can think of about the utter lack of imagination these joblessbrainlesshomophobicracistbastards have is about a girl i know walking down the street when some townie knob comes along on his crappy little "look at me im so 'ard, off the back off a lorry 'BMX' bike" and kicks out at her as he passes,generally acting like a shit, Anyway, this girl shouts "gets some Stabilisers u ignorant shit!" (which i thought was fair), and (this is what made me laugh) the boy shouts out "STABILISE YO MUM!". HAHHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHhahahahahahHHAHAHHhhhahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

Townie girls have very pale often scaby skin. Hair is pulled back into very very tight bun (see bunhead) or pony tail. Very very aggressive in packs and will not bear to be glanced at by non-townies. Marginalised members of society who take their aggression out on others. Constantly angry at everyone and probably themselves. Really bad diets of KFC and fanta hence skin conditions.
One townie to ordinary member of the public engaged in the art of conversation "Wot ya chattin' abah?"

Generally people living in South Mumbai (Bombay) are addressed by this term. From a geographical perspective this is south of dadar.
Townies are supposed to be generally well off compared to other Mumbai-ites and have better educational qualifications than the rest of the city residents. They are also known for their affinity to western culture, affluent lifestyle & fake american accents.
It will be very difficult to date her, she is a townie!

A native of Boston, but NOT Boston proper.

Charlestown, "Chucktown", South Boston and certain parts of Dorchester are townie habitats.

Boston is an upper -middle class,International, cosmopolitan city.

Townies are working class guys who live in the neighborhood they grew up in.

Townies consider themselves to have come from a section of a neighborhood, the West Side of South Boston for instance, rather than from


A lower-class Townie may have grown up in the "bricks", a public housing project.

They did not attend college and are usually, although not always, Irish Catholic.
THE DEPARTED, MYSTIC RIVER, SOUTHIE and THE TOWN are films set in Townie Boston.

"Where did you go to school"?

"Tobin High, I'm a townie!"

"Where are you from?"

"Andrew Square."



"WTF is a Chuckie?"

"A guy from Charlestown."

A term used by locals in New England towns to distinguish themselves from the hordes of tourists who flood their towns every summer. Townies are not necessarily natives, just the working class citizens of a New England tourist town.

Unlike Townies in a college town, Townies in a tourist town hold the term in high regard.
We hang out at Geno's because it's a townie bar.

Townie's avoid the Old Port (Portland Maine) in the summer because of all the inlanders and Mass-holes are always asking for directions.
