What is more acceptable than pardon wink

not going to flame, i'm going to join you.

i had a hmm moment the other day when at school pick up. 2 parents standing chatting and another heavily pregnant one arrives. parent one says "are you still here?" pregnant parent replies "yep still here". parent 2 says "i know when i saw you driving earlier i thought 'either she hasn't gone in yet or she has and she's back out again'"

1) she'll still be here once the baby is born- she wont disappear in a puff of smoke!
2) well duh! it doesn't take a genius to work that out!

ok flame me grin

Will you lot stop it with the what vs pardon thing?! <gets comfy on the settee in the lounge...>

OuterFromOutersville Sat 01-Mar-14 21:39:42

Chaos, that's just rude wink.

Terrortree Sat 01-Mar-14 21:45:29

The Queen says 'What' when us plebs say 'Pardon'.

Just so you know...pardon is to forgive, what is to express regret.

Here's hoping for a damehood....

ChaosTrulyReigns Sat 01-Mar-14 21:47:21

Phew, thank you, Outer.

Chastised and all is well again.

AtYourCervix Sat 01-Mar-14 21:48:26

Pardon is a bit common, what?

Anonymai Sat 01-Mar-14 21:49:27

Wot?

Definitely the woman who needs a good flaming for that outrage.

Lambzig Sat 01-Mar-14 21:51:10

Uugghh. Shuddering at pardon.

SavoyCabbage Sat 01-Mar-14 21:54:40

What? I don't even know what we are judging? The tea? The 'what'?

I beat my dc with the handle of a passing chimney sweeps broom if they say 'pardon'.

usualsuspect33 Sat 01-Mar-14 21:56:20

Aye?

usualsuspect33 Sat 01-Mar-14 21:57:39

Yerwot?

falulahthecat Sat 01-Mar-14 22:10:55

Pardon is actually the 'lower class' thing to say grin
What is more acceptable in posher circles, pardon is for servants!
Quite enjoyed telling my mum that after 15+ years of "It's pardon not what!!"

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Sat 01-Mar-14 22:14:10

Excuse me?

Picklesauage Sat 01-Mar-14 22:18:34

What about 'sorry?'
As in 'I didn't quite catch that, sorry?'

Joysmum Sat 01-Mar-14 22:20:00

Judgey? Yes I am. Pants.....? grin
