Not sure that you understand what a takeaway is mate.

not sure I do either - Scottish take outs seem to mean turning exotic food into some kind of pudding - fish and chips for me cheaper if you have your own tinned mushy peas and pickled onions indoors even better, get my rubies delivered, quarter of a crispy duck with pancakes plum sauce stripped scallions and cucumber goes down very nicely with a bottle of merrydown and a 'strangers in the night'(dooby dooby doo) I find

Sorry Stirls old chap but i have to pull you up on the use of the yank take out.
This is England. It is, always has, and hopefully, always be take away.
Just hope when you ordered it you didn't say
" yeah. Can i get..."

Agreed , it's take-away, just as on the radio the term "shout-out" should be banned.

You're right about the Beatles....and about 'shout-out'.

I am fast approaching 67 so I have had considerable experience of life and have traversed the globe.I certainly haven't head of the term 'Take-out' to describe food ordered to be consumed outside of the premises where it has been prepared and I have always used the term 'Take-away' in this context.

In actual fact I have used the words "I would like to order a take-away for collection" to distinguish from a take-way to be delivered.

Ok...ok....I get it...No one's buying 'take out'.

You are all 'take away'...I hear you.

I'm just hungry now.

As far as I am concerned I don't buy a "Take-out" I buy a "Take-away" !!

Perhaps a "Take-Out" has been used on occasions to describe a "Date" as in meeting a person one is attracted to.

Can't we take out a take away?....in the sense of being attracted to a bag of chips.

I'm not sure what being close to 67 or having traversed the globe has to do with never having heard the expression takout out before as it's quite conceivable that a 16 year old who has never been outside the boundaries of his home town uses the term regularly.

I'm not sure whether you are au fait with modern developments like the internet but there is a marvellous program on the internet called Google and if you insert the word takeout into Google it will come up with a multitude of responses including the major food delivery firm Uber Eats under their heading "Get a Takeout with Uber Eats | Easy Ordering, Fast Delivery&#8206;"

Reminds me back in 1982 when I cast eyes on a lady abroad who is now my dear wife.
I really wanted to read her 'Daily Mail' and being such a romantic I offered some of my chips in exchange!.I'm afraid she wasn't attracted to my chips and I had to do without reading the paper!
She relates this to friends etc to this day, referring to my "Soggy chips" but I don't recall they had this texture.

Sounds like you cashed your chips in all the same.
