A holiday maker, but one from outside
the local vicinity, i.e. someone holidaying in Christchurch who's from Southampton
isn't a grockle. Term used on the south
coast and has spread eastwards, stopping at Southampton
water. Most commonly heard in the solent town of Lymington where it's used as an insult towards ignorant
and usually posh tourists, those with caravans, those with five kids, a dog and granddad tagging along and those that have been coming to the town
for twenty years and think they know/own the place. Most commonly heard amongst fed-up shopworkers and working-class locals. Tends not to be applied to foreign
tourists as these generally tend to be considerate people when travelling and don't make a nuisance of themselves.
