It has never bothered me if someone uses,,,,,,,should of,would of,etc,as while fault finding thinking that oneself is a perfectionist they too have faults that would seem far more important to others.

Rose, I just remember what Bryan from Cilfrew said ..... ;-)


AnninGlos Report 23 Jan 2013 16:20

True Kay which is why, while it jars, I never remark on it and, i am sure neither does Rose. :-)

Kay unless I am in a really foul mood the only person I 'pull up' for using "these ones" or "should of" is myself lol. I still can't spell occasion without getting it wrong, and I always have to write the name Sheila before being sure it's right to have the e before the i.

Oh! My emoticons have disappeared :-(


Kay???? Report 23 Jan 2013 16:37

me too Rose,,,,,type,scrub,re-type,same again,scrub then settle for the first,which is wrong anyway,,,,,what the hell I know what its suposed to be and sound the same anyway...... ;-) :-D :-D :-D.

but I do know how Sheila is wrote. ;-) :-D :-D :-D :-D.

Stephen , definitely "wuffty" riles me... erm what is it? lol :-)


SuffolkVera Report 23 Jan 2013 16:40

Another pet hate that I bet a lot of you share:

People who talk loudly into their mobile phones in every possible public place so everyone has to hear their usually totally unnecessary conversation.

And people who won't ever turn them right off. We went to a matinee performance of Blood Brothers a while ago and a school group arrived. They were told to turn phones off but they put them on "silent" and then sat through the performance texting with their screens flickering.

I'm beginning to sound a right moaning Minnie - there's a lot of things I like as well, including my bobbly pink and yellow socks I'm wearing at the moment


AnninGlos Report 23 Jan 2013 16:40

Rather a nice word Wuffty!!! Yes,what is it Stephen?


JoyDean Report 23 Jan 2013 16:42

Do you remember, Rose, what Bryan used to say? ;-)

Rambling Rose Report 23 Jan 2013 16:44

Sorry Joy I missed your post there while pondering on the use of 'writ' ;-)

What did Bryan say?


supercrutch Report 23 Jan 2013 16:51

As I get older everything irriates :-D

Why oh why do some children talk in another language? wicked init? eh?

Personally I loathe old folks poking their sticks at slow moving people in front of them..........hang on, that's me

:-D :-D :-D

Vera your socks sound very fetching :-)

The phone conversations I've heard on the buses ! well all human life laid bare!

Ah Stephen , I should have known 'wuffty' :-)

Oi! you with the stick, stop poking! ;-)

:-S your posting - 23 Jan 2013 04:44 - I am sure it is afternoon :)

I remember Bryan from Cilfrew posted something like red alert, and I remember that, and I smile and just walk away; much easier to do that now than once upon a time :)

Joy must admit to seeing Bryan put Red Alert on.

In reply to Kay and Ann - it doesn't bother me really and, yes, I am well aware I have many faults myself :-)

I am really cross that these two make me so cross. Because they are probably both very nice indeed.
