The NZ / Australian word : squiz. To take a look or a glance at ; ‘James took a squiz out of the window’
In the UK when using London Transport / Tube and Bus system we ‘tap in’ and ‘tap out’ with our Oyster Card. In Auckland they have a ‘HOP’ card and you have to ‘tag on’ and ‘tag off’.
I couldn’t help wondering, as I contemplated the sign asking me to ‘tag off’ on the exit door of the bus, whether this might be an insult ( albeit a very polite one – it did say ‘please’)
‘WOF while you wait’ is a sign we often see in New Zealand. It’s basically the same as an MOT in the UK. It’s an acronym for Warrant of Fitness
