I don’t feel like going into work today. I think I’ll just chuck a sickie...🥴

“My shout” 💴
In this case, “shout” does not mean to yell. It means “my treat” or “I’ll pay”. It is to treat someone to something (food, drinks, etc).
If you say this, you’re not expecting the other person to pay you back!
You eat at a restaurant with a friend and you are about to pay.
Friend: Don’t worry about it! It’s my shout!
Meaning: Don’t worry about paying! It’s my treat, I’ll pay for it!
“Are you shouting us?”
Are you treating us?
“It’s your turn to shout”
It’s your turn to pay
