Commess & Kankalang | Yuh is ah Trini

Triniglish|Trinididioms spoken and explained #96 |  "Comess & Kankalang" | Yuh is ah Trini 

I did a post some time ago that dealt with nosey people. Some people are just 'too damn farse and outa place'... Ent! 

Well, it is time that we do something about it and my Paramin friend came up with an acronym for a movement to put a stop to all of this nonsense. Gail aka Gailos of the Wack Shout-Box advised me some time ago that we should endeavor to make M.A.C.K. the movement of choice. Simply put M.A.C.K. means Movement Against Comess and Kankalang!

I know that Comess and Kankalang could mean the same thing but we are creative enough to differentiate when something is simply Comess or an issue that needs to be categorized as pure unadulterated "Kankalang". 

Now take comess as an example... Comess is just a case of confusion or it could just be a conflict that was the result of some simple misunderstanding. This can be easily remedied but in some instances, a case of comess is the result of someone who is in the mood to create mischief. I am sure that you have been a victim of this at some time or may have been the vehicle of a situation that was done when you were in a mischievous mood.

The flip side of this is Kankalang... I like the word kankalang it is so Trini in nature and has a good sound when it rolls of one's tongue. Kankalang is just a different degree of comess. However, in this case, it is a situation created by someone's curiosity and in this case because they too "damn farse and outa place". People who are 'farse and outa place' simply like to meddle in other people's business. I am sure you know someone like that... Don't you?

The goal of this post was to help you understand some Trini Comess and Kankalang. M.A.C.K was just a joke in the Wack radio shout-box but if you want to become proactive and take care of some meddling person then the M.A.C.K movement could serve you well. Set up a group and let us know if you were able to deal with your Trini Comess and Kankalang.
