"So, it's probably in the last couple of years that it's become common"

"So, is it used in that way mainly by young people?"

"So, yes"

"So - there we have it !"

"Perfect!"

Is another word that the youth seem to throw into conversation, particularly those employed in customer services. Are they being trained to say this? Generally whatever you have been discussing is not "Perfect", rather it is simply what was expected in the first place.

I remember in "Darling Buds of May", David Jason used to say "Perfic". I also think back to this when I hear someone saying "perfect", which as stated above seems to be the "in" word at the moment. I've even found myself saying it... or at least "perfic"!

Hedgehog 15-11-2019 05:38 PM

I'm not sure if this is annoyance, a moan, or confusion... my medical insurance company takes the premium by direct debit on the 1st of every month. They have just informed me that starting this month they will be taking the premium on the last day of the month. Seeing as they already took money on the first of November they are scheduled to take another on the 30th of November and then 31st of December.

This makes 13 installments in 2019, which strikes me as not kosher. I appreciate it will all come out in the wash, but seems like a nice little bonus for them to make their 2019 numbers look better.

Am I wrong?

A la the recent Planet of the Apes revival, has someone jemmied the padlock at the Hooray Henry internment facility? I’ve worked in the City for the past 30 years and after a 10 to 15 year lull, there now seems to be a resurgence of middle class twits taking drivel. The Clapham Set are back! Approach with caution if someone intersperses every utterance with OTT superlatives. Which is absolutely perfect, unbelievable and super advice from Moi. Toodles.

To be fair, “anything else mate” should have been your immediate response to customer ordering four Stellas. Then you nip the situation in the bud... :)

One thing that pisses me off is ordering Coke and being given some feeble substitute for Coke on the assumption that by Coke I mean whatever shitey brand of generic cola happens to be available. No I don't. I mean f***ing Coke FFS. There is no such thing as an acceptable substitute.

And the number of places that stock Pepsi instead of Coke seems to be rising. Waiting staff are frequently surprised when I won't accept Pepsi instead of Coke.

I would 100%. Diet Coke for me. Pepsi is foul :moo:

As an aside, does anyone remember that Coke Lite stuff from a while back? It was what most corner shops stocked - presumably a cheap import from somewhere. That was foul too.

Gazza2 18-11-2019 01:20 PM

Any political party who pledges to make it illegal to order pint(s) of Guinness anywhere other than first in a round of drinks would get my vote. It is a far more important consideration than Brexit.

Me too, the difference between Coke is Pepsi is marked, just as it it between (say) Coke and Diet Coke. Don't particularly like any of them on their own, tbh.

Cupid stunts who get on a train at platform four at Sutton who don't shut the doors after them in cold and wet weather. Trains at this platform terminate here in the main and go back the other way. If these cupid stunts want to stay cold then stay on the platform.

Don't let the heat escape. Or what little heat there is.

Christmas is just a commercial extravaganza, presents should be for children who dont have money to buy things for themselves, adults dont need presents. Every year I dont want gifts.

Was in the pub trade for years, had loads of people claiming they could tell the difference...not one of them could. In fact one guy, who was adamant to the point of arrogance, was served Pepsi for 6 months without realizing.

Based on? I speak from 45 years' experience. Pepsi and Coke are entirely different drinks and if you can't tell the difference between them you should ask your doctor to refer you to neurology.

AFAICT you quoted three of us who disagreed with you and added the erudite comment "Total bollocks" without any explanation. You also said you would bet that I was wrong, again giving zero evidence or argument, which suggests that you think you have telepathic powers.

I quite like a Coke (or Pepsi) now and then on a hot day.

After 18 holes on a hot day a pint of Coke goes down well before starting on the pints.

Plus, rum and cokes.

I can also tell the difference between Diet Coke and Coke Zero. Did I read somewhere that Coca Cola were aiming Coke Zero at men and Diet Coke at women in their advertising?

And I can also tell the difference between Roses Lime Cordial (the best) and other own label stuff.

Martin H 20-11-2019 10:30 AM

Really can't stand the way the entire news/breakfast/whatever team have all adopted an aggressive and combative stance with any political representative as if they were Robin Day or Paxman at their worst.

1 - because most of them aren't quick witted or knowledgeable to do so and they can't distinguish between outwitting them and the mindlessness of just repeating the same dumb question by rearranging the words. If he/she says no comment, it's not clever to persist it's stupid.

2 - because you never get to hear what the politician is trying to say. Fair do's in a late night focused and detailed interview that you persist and get them into a corner but not on Breakfast TV or outside Parliament.

I do get that during elections they have to be seen to keep a balance but this is 365/6 days a year now. Yawn....... and painful to watch.

Neighbours.

Mrs NKE. She's just turned the telly over to watch those bloody celebrities in the jungle and that pair of boring fart presenters.

There's nothing on tele tonight, anyway. I've looked. There's a Hunt v Lauda documentary (1976) on BBC4 at 22:00. Until then, you may as well dip in and out of BBS threads. It's what I'm currently doing.

Will they implement the four day week permanently then? No, didn't think so.

Seeing as it's a trial no, but my question still stands.

Also, a 4 day week is better than the Conservative implemented 3 day week...or was JC to blame for that too?

The heating in my house, yes I know its cold outside but why does my wife turn the inside of our house into the Gobi dessert?

You are being a blancmange about this.

It's what women do. Anything below 75 degrees needs further heating :D. My mother and sister could rent out their place to Kew Gardens as an overspill of their tropical butterfly house. If I visit for the weekend after the Autumn equinox I take shorts and t-shirts.
