I think they thought I had an imaginary friend.

So I believe this faux pas was due to my South London upbringing - so Americans don't have the monopoly in talking stupid! :p

Is your imaginary friend called Harvey perchance?

''can I GET'' In the pub ''can I GET a Fosters?'' In Costa ''can I GET a latte''. Well of course you bloody well can. ''May I have'', ''can I have'' . . . please is perfectly polite and acceptable. A trap door is required in all retail outlets.

Or people who write 'whoop whoop' or call someone 'dude'. The characters in Friends were American, we on the other hand live in Britain.

I use 'dude' all the time, makes a change from 'mate' .Then again I also say things are 'cosmic' so I can't be helped.

It true. Another example is "I phoned the shop to complain and they told me I could get a refund". So just how many people was I talking to at once? They? It was one person. They my arse.

Oh and by the way it's "stoopid" to you now. :)

Don't mind those but I do get annoyed when people call me 'boss'. Feels like they're taking the piss.

Stavros 69 09-05-2015 12:09 PM

People who put their headphones in to talk on the phone and then talk really REALLY LOUD

Shipp Ahoy! 09-05-2015 12:28 PM

People who think they are the best singers in the world treating you to their talent, when in reality you'd pay them to STFU!

Also people who use acronyms ;)

They're all ******* useless.

Tell one they can start work at a property. They agree a time and date with the tenants, who book a day off work. The night before he calls them up to say he can't make it because he has a dentist appointment.

Who gets all the shit for this? Me.

C*****s

Little Fozzie 10-05-2015 12:03 AM

Oh as if that's been done by the ******* swear filter.

C*un*ts

Little Fozzie 10-05-2015 12:03 AM

I had a delivery booked, they send me a time slot so I'm in when they deliver. Driver calls me to tell me when he's going to deliver... All good so far... Except he gave me 5 mins notice and was an hour early. Sorry, I'm out at the supermarket getting stuff done so I can wait in during the timeslot you said you'd turn up in

Vince Hilaire's Afro 10-05-2015 01:57 PM

Jerry Murphy's Fringe 10-05-2015 02:06 PM

Supermarket carparks, or more particularly people trying to park within or navigate them having deposited their entire sense of spatial awareness at the roundabout on the way in.
If I wanted to dice with death, it would not occur inside the curtilage of the local Tesco's demolition derby track.
