    Three. After me last, me Uncle Terry

    Jack got bailed and started working in some workplace. He got partner called Kelly. Kelly ask him about the crime which he did to get in the prison:

    Kelly: So what were you in for? Unless you don't want to...
    Jack: No, no. Uh, stealing cars, you know, joyriding.
    Kelly: Right. How many stints you do?
    Jack: Three. After me last, me Uncle Terry suggested I make a new start somewhere else.

    What is the meaning of "after me last"? Looks like a nice idiom, but google didn't show nothing.

    See above. You still need to do a lot of work on your verb forms.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
