"So, it's probably in the last couple of years that it's become common"

"So, is it used in that way mainly by young people?"

"So, yes"

"So - there we have it !"

"Perfect!"

Is another word that the youth seem to throw into conversation, particularly those employed in customer services. Are they being trained to say this? Generally whatever you have been discussing is not "Perfect", rather it is simply what was expected in the first place.

I remember in "Darling Buds of May", David Jason used to say "Perfic". I also think back to this when I hear someone saying "perfect", which as stated above seems to be the "in" word at the moment. I've even found myself saying it... or at least "perfic"!

I'm not sure if this is annoyance, a moan, or confusion... my medical insurance company takes the premium by direct debit on the 1st of every month. They have just informed me that starting this month they will be taking the premium on the last day of the month. Seeing as they already took money on the first of November they are scheduled to take another on the 30th of November and then 31st of December.

This makes 13 installments in 2019, which strikes me as not kosher. I appreciate it will all come out in the wash, but seems like a nice little bonus for them to make their 2019 numbers look better.

Am I wrong?

A la the recent Planet of the Apes revival, has someone jemmied the padlock at the Hooray Henry internment facility? I’ve worked in the City for the past 30 years and after a 10 to 15 year lull, there now seems to be a resurgence of middle class twits taking drivel. The Clapham Set are back! Approach with caution if someone intersperses every utterance with OTT superlatives. Which is absolutely perfect, unbelievable and super advice from Moi. Toodles.

The Christmas adverts e.g. John Lewis. I couldn’t give a crap.
Send the money to the needy and stop these stupid adverts which make us feel ‘all gooey about Christmas’

Ordering a coke at the bar, and the barmaid having to ask back 'is Pepsi okay?'

EastBerksEagle 18-11-2019 07:55 AM

At work last night bar was busy “4 pints of Stella please” just as I poor the last one “anything else mate” yeah a pint of Guinness “:wallbash:

Slimbloke'H' 18-11-2019 09:23 AM

To be fair, “anything else mate” should have been your immediate response to customer ordering four Stellas. Then you nip the situation in the bud... :)

One thing that pisses me off is ordering Coke and being given some feeble substitute for Coke on the assumption that by Coke I mean whatever shitey brand of generic cola happens to be available. No I don't. I mean f***ing Coke FFS. There is no such thing as an acceptable substitute.

And the number of places that stock Pepsi instead of Coke seems to be rising. Waiting staff are frequently surprised when I won't accept Pepsi instead of Coke.
