Sod the suspension a car can handle speed bumps taken faster than 1 mile an hour.

However I accept the aching bodies bit, so from now on will only get annoyed if the driver (or occupants) are younger than old :)

I read somewhere once that it's because when English travelled to the colonies 'undreds of years ago that's 'ow it was said. It's become herbs in England over time but they stayed the same.

Now the American pronunciation of parmesan....no excuse for that.
Also, while we're slagging them off what about their habit of saying the country after the city name, as in Paris, France or London, England?

Or (usually) American pop stars at concerts who say that love being in the town or city that are playing at, and its the best place ever.

Just as a matter of interest, how do they pronounce it? (Though I suppose anyone who doesn't pronounce it parmigiano is wrong anyway.)

Personally I'm happy to hear Americans pronounce words any way they choose. What I do find really annoying is that Brits copy them. Leverage is a perfectly good word, been around for ages, now it seems necessary to pronounce it 'levverage'.
What on earth are levvers? I fought they were the clothes what bikers wear.

And yes... the "herb" thing is very odd. Especial as it is one of the very few words beginning with H that I actually pronounce the "H"!

It's taken me 30 years to to start adding the H in to words, and this one takes it off!

I saw The Eagles at Earls Court, and Don Henley said something along the lines of, "Thank you Earls Court.... by the way, who is this Earl and where is his court?"

Sort of made me smile, as I'm sure he too gets pissed off with saying as you describe above.

My dad had his back garden done recently, had a few turf samples, and by far the best one was called "Selhurst".

Went with another company in the end that didn't have such wonderful names for astroturf.....probably for the best, he would have spent most of the day slipping over !

The same hotels are usually the ones that insist on bringing you water an hour or so after you check in, i.e. mid coitus if you are travelling with your girlfriend (twice in two different hotels, and neither gave up knocking until I answered the door with no subtlety). Also annoying.

The utensil drawer in every household kitchen. It gradually gets filled up with so much useless shit that you can't find things you actually want like a potato peeler, and always has a potato masher in it that gets caught on the cabinet every time you try to open or close the over full drawer.

IW_Eagle's thread about his stop over in LAX reminded me of a real annoyance:
US Immigration.
It is without fail the most laborious drudge of all the immigration entries I have to go through and that includes some pretty decent competition e.g. China.

Since I got my latest passport in Sept 2012 I've re-entered the US 34 times (I counted all the stamps last week whilst waiting over 45 mins to be processed). Over 20 of those have been on a Green Card. Every time they photograph me and fingerprint me. At what point does their system say, hang on a minute, this guy is a frequent traveller, maybe we have his mugshot enough times?

US Immigration is barking mad. Have had problems where my wife was accused of never leaving the country thus committing an offence - even though we had just landed at international arrivals! Really intimidating to be taken out of line and led to an office for further "processing".

9/11 totally fecked them up and they still haven't recovered.

Gooders 31-05-2015 07:29 AM

US immigration has been rotten for the whole of the 25 years I've been going back and forth there. Canada is also a trial.

The queues in the UK can be pretty horrendous at times as well though.

Boy - I didn't realize they did that with Green Card holders.

I'm beginning to think they should just implant a chip in our necks like they do dogs. I seriously would be OK with that if it cut down on this meaningless waiting in lines.

I do have to say the set up at Miami was not bad though, where a machine scans your face and compares you to the info on the biometric passport.

Now if they could only figure out something for the customs line.

Where they are in place I am forced to use those machine readers. Not once has one worked, always to the back of the queue (having wasted 10 mins getting a stupid print out telling me to see an immigration officer - I could have told you I was going to end up in that line 10 mins ago :grrr: ). Thankfully BA terminal 7 at JFK hasn't got them yet so I can usually (being at the front of the plane most times) get into line early. Still mugged and printed though, every time!

xmasape 31-05-2015 06:21 PM

US air travel is shit. They let me through with a lighter, a pack of matches and an expired license, yet they confiscated my wife's expensive hair care products.

Guess they don't care if the plane blows up as long as their hair looks smashing.

I love going to The U.S. but as has been said, passport control is awful.

It's almost like they don't want you to visit their country.

As others have said Heathrow is is not exactly the standard to judge other countries by either... why is it about a mile walk from the plane... great when you've been sat on a plane for 10 hours - not sure how old folk do it (I guess I find out next time!).

Huge lines for non-UK/Euro citizens also.

Staplers.

Why don't the last half dozen staples ever work?

It's a shitty design that we've all put up with for decades. Sort it out Rexel you bastards.

They all sound quite cromulent to me.
