What's a cheque? :bash:

The use of apostrophes in plurals these days. I know you used to see greengrocers doing it with "Apple's 50p", but it's everywhere now. Especially in football chat.

Freekick's
Transfer's
Throw in's
Play-off's

Aaargh.

Apostrophe's in plural's? Load's of them's ingraining's in people's brain's. It's unbelievable's the standard's of teaching's the'se day's. (That's enough's - Ed.)

Well, indeed. But much to my chagrin they are still wildly popular in the US. At least the phone app makes their continued usage bearable.

Roadworks -how can a ton of gravel, a few machines and 12 blokes standing around doing f**k all cost $6m?

Quiz shows where the contestants talk for 5 minutes before giving an answer.

Why do old people spend ages being served in banks on a Saturday when I'm behind them in the queue? They've got all bloody week to go to the bank. Why do they go shopping on a Saturday at all? I'll tell you why - it's to piss me off. Looks like they've succeeded.

Quite right. I don't care about the contestants and their ******* life stories, just get on with the questions.

Yes, but that's a bit less annoying than when people can't spell Nigel Martyn and Kenny Sansom correctly, both of whom are unquestionably club legends.

Bolaise. I get a great view of him from the Arthur Waite.

People who say 'underestimate' when they clearly mean 'overestimate'.

'That goal might have won the Play Off Final - and you can't underestimate the importance of that'

Roaming the streets of Paris and seeing Chocolatiers, gorgeous Patisseries, a shop dedicated just to Pistachio nuts and coming home to see a new 25p shop exists in the UK and has sold out of stock in 2 days.
