That is what I thought but some of the posts that it is used in really can throw you off.
Hence
Ooohhhh! I thought it was "bloody hell"

IIRC it was used in some of the glitch threads when someone snatched a flight. Sorry but I am to lazy to search.

It's used quite often when people are exited.

In common use it's used as "Thank G-D" as in "Thank G-D I managed to snag the ticket before the deal went dead".

That is the part I don't get or think is appropriate. Better suited for another thread. Sorry for the OT.

I think it's appropriate to have gratitude for all things in life- big and small.
