    I once seen a development in Glasgow being run by Bam Contractors, and thought that a plot of land had been claimed by a band of local bawheids.

    One of those words that doesnt really mean anything. I would say it means just the same as "dafty", I remember people used to always say it when I was wee probably in primary school but I rarely hear it now and havent said it in years probably.

    "wit you dain ya bam" its mostly used in that sentance
