Pedants' corner

AIBU at being quite so wound up

every time I see the term floor being used for what is clearly, being outdoors, the ground. It is bad enough in everyday speech, but in a broadsheet newspaper it makes me want to phone up and rant at the subs desk for half an hour without pausing for breath.
But I know that would be wrong, so I have come on here to find out if I am the only pedant with this particular bugbear.

Ne'er mind dear. It's fine. You're entitled.

How about "Oh I really love this space."

LOL at "space"

How about your 'outdoor room'?? The garden, in other words.

or chairs in cars when they're clearly seats
