Hello everybody,

Two English girls are having a blather on the phone.
After a while one of them gets slightly annoyed with her friend and says:

Stop chatting breeze!

Does it mean "stop talking nonsense" or maybe something like "stop talking about silly things" ?
Cheers

    It could be a variant of shooting the breeze - to chat or talk idly. That's US slang, but there's no accounting for what happens when it moves across the water.

    Hi Paul from Italy,
    There are a few suggested definitions here. The first one there corresponds to your guess. As for me, I've never heard the expression at all in the US; we do shoot the breeze, but that is not necessarily nonsense... ;)

    Thanks guys.
    I believe it could be "talking nonsense" as suggested by kitenok since one of the girls is a Londoner and the Urban dictionary says it's London slang.
