definition of a Nippy Sweety

by Michelle Sandelier, Lifetime Member

My grandfather was from Glasgow and I am familiar with the phrase as he used it to address any one who was rude or uncharitable in their response; sour pusses with nothing good to say about any one and who took any thing said to them to be a personal insult. An irritable sharp-tongued person may be described as a nippy sweetie. It is in no way a compliment. To whose person should the the descriptive phrase be directed? Michelle
