Do these people go to an art museum and start applauding in front of a painting? I think not.

There is no one there that cares... unless your at the Premier I guess.

I want to expand on yours and say inconsistent pronunciation of player names in general. Bellerin in the Arsenal game today had about 3 different ways of saying it between the two commentators. It pains me they don't bother to learn how to say it correctly, even the Yanks get that right in sports.

Thank you your insight.

It would appear that G's are pronounced as H's.

Now all we need to know is it aitch or haitch?

We do know, it's aitch.

Unless you were Harry H Corbett of Steptoe fame.

When asked what the "H" stood for, he answered "Hanything".

Automated menu systems at call centres that make you go through 1 for this 2 for that then ask your account details and address and then when you get throughout to someone THEY ******* ASK IT ALL AGAIN! I ******* HATE THE ******* THINGS! WHAT IS THE POINT!

Think I'm losing my senses but here goes. Listening to BBC's 'Books And Authors' podcast, I heard an author mispronounce the word 'hyperbole'. The failed pronunciation loses the speaker every ounce of credibility in my books. Then, on another episode, I heard a Cambridge scholar use a rhetorical term I had never come across before and she failed to spell it for the listeners. The term is anacolutha and I spent the last fifteen minutes trying to find it. My story has a happy ending though. I thought to myself, I'm going onto the BBS thread, Things That Annoy You. Whaddayaknow? Guess which thread was first on the left hand column? It's times like this that my love for the Palace family knows no bounds!:lux::lux:

If you resolve to only contact call centres at work, the inefficiency of the system becomes your friend and you grow to actually enjoy and draw out the entire process, just to kill time.

Fake child voices on tv adverts. The Barclays learn to code one being a prime example.

No offence taken. I was in need of getting it off my chest. Seriously though word pronunciation is important because it affects how seriously a person is taken in a public forum.

National anthems and dignitaries/hangers on being introduced to teams before internationals. Even worse is the trend for some warbling opera bint in sequins belting out god save the queen. Just cut the shit and get on with the ******* game.

Especially considering the players have spent the previous half hour warming up only to be then made to stand around for 10 minutes.

Ant and Dec.

In particular the fact that they seem to spend their lives standing or sitting in the right order ie Ant and Dec rather than Dec and Ant.

The amount of packaging involved with an Easter egg.

Yes, Yes and Yes!
Exactly who is responsible for world sport being infiltrated by over the top pre-ceremony? National anthems go off at the opening of an envelope these days. FFS, the cricket World Cup sent teams out to the sound of their anthems at the semi final stage. :veryangry
However, God Save The Queen conspicuously absent on those occasions.
