French verb “brexiter”

I learnt a new expression today:
French verb “brexiter”, as in:
Arriving at a party, you declare: “Je vais brexiter”, meaning I am going to leave at 9pm - but in fact will still be there at 2.30am.

Oh la la, cheeky french ............... I have never known people as late for just about everything as the french.

The quart d'heure savoyard was the rule rather than the exception. And that quarter of an hour, was a  miss amount of time, rather than hit an miss........ because too many would even be much later school.
