Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Q&A about words interesting locution
OP "I'm wondering if you might have misheard "landed up" and it was actually "ended up" - which I have frequently heard in that construction."
I thought I was mishearing it, too, so I listened carefully and that's what it was every time she said it. This person was a pretty odd specimen in many ways, and a good source for rural Georgia usage. She used some words I couldn't spell. "Stawb" is the best I can do for one of them. It seemed to indicate a large pole or stanchion that would tear off the door of your car should you strike it wrong. Which apparently she had.
