Official correspondence asking me to 'please RSVP'. Why??? There's no need for please... Rant over smile

The advert saying you can 'save up to half price' give me the rage. You can save up to half, or it's half price surely?

3AM in the morning give me the rage every time!

dun1urkin Mon 16-Nov-15 23:07:24

self I always thought that the next station stop thing was for muppetitious folk who got confused by 1) the train stopping when it's not at a station or 2) the train not stopping at the next station grin

the next station stop...Either the next STATION OR THE NEXT STOP.

No, I think this one actually means what it says. The next station stop, as opposed to the next seven unscheduled stops before the next station which make your train arrive 40 minutes later than you had planned!

3AM in the morning give me the rage every time!

Yes! It's a line in a song from the 70s, every time I hear it I get the rage too.

EHCP plan, also known as Education, Health AND Care Plan, but frequently mistaken for Education Healthcare Plan plan.

Why are there two errors in this abbreviation? Grrrr....

New and improved.

Well, is it new or is it improved?!

I get uptight when things are 'for free'.

Nope.

They're either 'free' or 'for ££'.

Sgtmajormummy Mon 16-Nov-15 23:21:01

IKillEveryBloodyThreadIPostOn Mon 16-Nov-15 23:21:52
