Insects! What’s happened?!? Don’t know about you down south, but here in Edinburgh I’ve never noticed more wasps, bees, moths and spiders than I have this summer. WTF is going on??? Is there some kind of breeding program going on or have these little shits converted to Catholicism?

Kilos always sounds so Australian to me.

Went to a butcher in Romford mkt a couple of weeks ago and asked the young bird serving for 12 oz of diced lamb. Cue confused looks and "Sorry I don't know what that is" lol. Butcher came over to help out:D

Hospitals. Stressed? Potentially being diagnosed with a terminal illness? Let’s add to it by being really ******* unhelpful, directing you to a special entrance and then having zero signs and maps to help you reach your appointment on time. Our staff will pretend to not hear you when you ask for directions. By the time you do see the doctor you will wish you were dead anyway. Still, that water feature where the old map used to be won a design award, don’t you know.

People who insist on keep trying to make you dance when it's the last thing in the world you want to do, just above squeezing lemon juice into an infected eye socket.

'Come on, it's fun! Don't be so boring!'.

Usually these are the sorts of people with zero ambitions, hobbies or interests aside from sitting in front of a TV waiting to die. You go off and have your fun, stop worrying about where I'm going to get mine.

Funny, my experience is usually the opposite! Non dancers are maybe 80% of the time awkward, socially inept types who have sitting on their arse with pizza and Netflix right at the top of their list of ‘hobbies.’

But this is in the teens-early 20s demographic.

Discobar sounds like Nadsat. I like it.

Use of the term 'meta' in discussing a point about pop culture to sound pseudo- intellectual regarding the meaning of something's contextually. More of a cringe reaction than annoyance.

I've decided; the reason others get in your way is because they crave human interaction or, as with tourists, it's because they want to practise their English. There is no other explanation for it, sometimes. I'm convinced.

Plus the number of plastic bags they use in Walmart. Why the hell do they put single items in a bag? There's a Global crisis with single plastic use and I reckon Walmart is responsible for the majority of the USA's contribution.

Wrong. We pronounced it that way, so the world copied it. Then we changed it. So both are correct. Mind you when a Septic says it, it's very annoying, a bit like yourself.

Put Quentin tarantino in quotation marks. Currently your search will return everything including Quentin Tarantino and films.

It annoys me that 'aitch' seems to be dying out. Seems to be more and more people using 'haitch' (apart from when they say NHS!)

I overheard some shop assistants the other day, couldn't have been much older than 20, and one said, 'she was saying aitch, have you ever heard that before?'

I fight this battle often. When people say they're studying for their HSC (High School Certificate) and pronounce it 'haitch' I feel compelled to say I can only presume English isn't one of their chosen subjects.

It’s bass not seabass the use of the word sea is redundant as we in this country do not have fresh water bass so we do not need the distinction. I correct anyone I hear using the term. It is only a small thing but god it winds me up. Even to the point of shouting at the TV when some pretentious prick of a chef nestles his sea bass on a bed of wilted green leaves. You cock womble.

If we are slagging off the American pronunciation of things where do the English come up with the pronunciation of:

Greenwich (Even Americans call Greenwich Village in NY Gren-ige)
Woolwich
Norwich
Thames

Another one for the Yank mockers is their pronunciation of any of the 'shires, as in Hampshire or Worcestershire... with the over pronunciation of the Shire.

And don't forget about Jaguar being Jag-u-wah.

What about ‘Leye-Cest-Er’ for Leicester? When they won the title it was fun hearing all the silly pronunciations from around the world.

Why say lift when you can say elevator?

Oh, and the ground floor being the first floor, so the English first floor is The US's 2nd floor.

Not to mention fannies and rubbers...

And you guys thought it was easy living in America! It's a minefield of faux pas I tell you.

I'm not sure I like how they pronounce Crystal Palace either.

I like the way they pronounce Crystal Palace in places like Liverpool and Leicester, with a "f***ing" in the middle.

My Hyundai had its first service today. Bargain £68 as its an EV. They gave it a valet as part of the service. So far so good. Got in the car - nearly threw up - they had let loose the foulest smelling cheap 'air freshener' all over the interior. It has ruined that nice, nearly new car smell. That'll teach me to try out a Corby car dealer!

The smaller the better - until they are invisible- nearly as bad as Wagon Wheels
