How long have I got? ;-)

I dislike intensely being told I am "suggesting", saying, implying, hinting at, 'something'.....when I have in fact done nothing of the sort.

I dislike generalisations and labels... as per those Kitty mentioned, plus many more :-)

Tonight I especially dislike it that my bank has decided to do my "annual account review" so "when would be convenient for me to see an advisor?". In well over 30 years of having an account with them, always being in credit, and never breaking into the arranged overdraft they never did an "annual review" I am using the overdraft it's a different ball game lol. But I suppose they DO have to justify the massive expense of expanding the branch by being seen to be 'in touch with their customers needs' :-|

And ....custard tarts with no nutmeg on.... ;-)

I have been known to have a fit of the vapours at misused apostrophes on public signs or official documents.

Any bad use of grammar in offical stuff irks me greatly.

I really get peed off when people have a pop at teenagers. Mostly they're lovely, it's just a few who cause trouble. There are just as many anti-social pensioners pushing to the front of queues and mouthing off in pubs.

I usually put off calling phone / tech support for my mobile as I can be sure to waste a lot f time and get nowhere except boiling mad.

Yesterday I had a serious some on my bill for 08xx numbers I had never dialled and on top "SIM not permitted to connect to this network".

Instead of using usual channels went via "thinking of leaving T-Mobile (EE)". Wow. Bill reduced to normal, handed through to techie who sorted out the SIM problem in short order. All in standard English (well, Middlesborough which I like) and very friendly .... so maybe there is a dept which does value yr custom. My contract expires in May.

fwiw living in France for years there are downsides and France Telekom aka Orange is one of them. In a country for which rude and useless utility customer service is the norm even the French find Orange to much. Once the market was liberalised they deserted in their millions. Orange did not change. I was dismayed when Orange took over T-Mobile ... I think you just have to hope for a T-Mobile renegade who likes customers.

OTOH GRU are impervious to to their customers - Natasha for instance has vanished along with her stickies. Where are Estelle and Phil now ?

Absolutely see red when strangers park their car opposite our garage and b off .we can't get the car out or put it back if we have been out . We have a cul de sac access at the back of the houses for access to our garages that are in the back gardens.
Some think its a public car park I think.

There have been times when the car has had to stay out all night cos a car hasn't moved, very annoying cos our car insurance is on the basis of the car being garaged overnight when we are home

Am getting het up just writing this :-(

The mis-use of apostrophes. Some people now put an apostrophe before every letter "s" at the ends of words. When I was teaching I once had a note from a parent who signed herself "Mrs. Jone's"


Sharron Report 21 Apr 2013 13:29

Bad English by journalists, it is the tool of their trade.

Drivers using mobile phones.

Being patronized.

Selfish, thoughtless parents.

Treacle tart.
