I am watching a show on Netflix called Grand Design. People in England are taking old barns, old cinemas, trash lots etc... and making these beautiful modern homes.

The one I am watching now, the owner man said:

"My old job was cleaning Becky's hair out of the poke hole."

what this translates to in American words is:

My old job was cleaning Becky's hair out of the shower drain.

Oh my lord, you learn something new every day.
I would have thought Becky would keep her OWN poke-hole clean.
