...not invites as a noun, gah!

I've just seen yet another example of this usage, and rather than be a wanker on that thread, I thought I should vent here.

Is it just me that finds this irritating?

I was going to just type "invitations' on that thread.


Sadly, it's probably in the dictionary as a verb now.

Dice as singular bothers me tremendously. You?

With the proper punctuation marks unlike some silly billy on that thread.

Oh, yes- completely offensive grin

GretaGip Fri 26-Aug-11 17:28:36

Was that the right abbreviation?

You know, the one what you coined?

UTGSN, I think it was. Failed to ignite the boards due to being, er, a bit offensive. I still like it though.

Agree, and usually it (invites) is said in a particularly irritating way, which makes me behave like a snot; stressing invitATION every time I hear it.

I think it's very apt. And a suitable comment on many AIBUs.

Yes, I come over all Celia Johnson when I hear it in real life. Well, Celia Johnson with a hint of Scouse...

I miss proper invitations - just as I miss quotations <sniffs>

LeBJOF Fri 26-Aug-11 18:11:20

Ah, quotations- excellent example grin

Ok - please would you say what UTGSN and SIOB stand for? Thank you.
