Sorry in advance for the spelling of this expression. Do you know of "serbicwitnessour disposition"? I've heard it somewhere and can't find the spelling or any other information. Please help, it is driving me crazy. Thank you.

How was it used when you heard it? –  Jim Nov 26 '13 at 5:16
The person was referring to his own personality. It was a positive comment. –  Truetreasure Nov 26 '13 at 5:18
My guess is that he said, "an acerbic wit and a sour disposition" –  Jim Nov 26 '13 at 5:19
thank you. you are right. what exactly does it mean? –  Truetreasure Nov 26 '13 at 5:22
Look up each of those words in the dictionary. However, it's not 'a positive' when referring to one's own personality, one hardly would. –  Kris Nov 26 '13 at 5:26
