I was in town earlier. A man passed a woman coming the other way and said " Hi, how are you ? Allright ? Good" and walked on. She didn't even open her mouth. M

I get home from work at 5:30 - and 'Jamies 15 minute meals' is on.
I can't stand him! He repeats the same phrases night after night - and his meals seem to consist mainly of cous cous, rice and chilli

'Just give it a wazz'
'a bi' uh' something

When you ask someone to confirm what day/date it is...... ie, 'is today the 7th?' and they say ' Yeah, all day'?.....! A very irritating unamusing reply!

'Bear with me'



I answer the phone at work all day, and NEVER use that phrase. I'd rather say 'Hang on a minute', but usually say,
'This may take some time - how about you e-mail me, then I'll reply when the system's responding, or the hamsters come out of hibernation, whichever is quickest'

(We've got a new system at work that is very slow and slows down every other system we use - but obviously is the 'brainchild' of a friend of higher management)


Bear with me - No, you push on your own!!!

"Bear with me" I always take that as an order and usually have my shirt off before they find what I want :-) ;-)
