Quote: H pronounced haitch instead of aitch.

Interestingly enough I was recently asked by an Iranian guy I work with why I said "Its ot and I ave an ead ache" rather than "It's hot and i have a head ache". I explained to him that in 1780 the people of Essex sold all their H's to Kent to pay for the purchase of Canvey Island from the royal estate. And since then us Essex folk aint been allowed to use the letter H in conversation.

I think he believed me Wink

People that now say 'I would of....' instead of 'I would have...' - this now seems to be the norm even though it is rubbish.
And 'fill out this form' instead of 'fill in'. You empty out, and fill in. You cannot say 'fill out' - another stupid americanism we have picked up.

Oh, and those that say ' there are lessons to be learned from this' (b............ks!) and the other old chestnut ' we're reviewing our procedures and will be taking steps to work with blah blah blah' - another couple of NHS favourites!

The death of the letter (ledder?) 'T'

Ledder - Letter
Bedder - Better
Unided - United


And politicians (and broadcasters more and more) continually prefixing everything "Look"
and saying " I think it's important" three times in every sentence because some spin doctor says they should,

Crikey, no wonder everyone's so bloody stressed all the time.
Can't believe one of Barrie's rants got 5 pages of other folk joining in. LOL

At the end of the day though, all this blue sky thinking is just really really really really awesome, innit.

Quote: "we are where we are"

That translates as
"I've f**ked up but I don't want to talk about it, so lets move on"

My current favourite in the same vein is:
"The past is not within the realms of management"

Recently heard on Radio 5 Live; "Back in the day" what day? You mean before or years ago or in the past.

Darren, the weather person - "The engineers haven't gotten there yet" it's got there or haven't arrived.

Another - Darren has the weather "Yes I do", no Darren, you have, you're not being proposed to.


Middle management speak; Drill down, do the math, (where's the s?) pushing the envelope, threw a curved ball.

I'll have to stop now, my negative stress levels are rising...
