    What if he takes his family?

    'Four for Thor Four'
    'Sure'

    Anyway, I had a particularly annoying woman on the phone today who not only said 'somethink' and 'nothink', but actually emphasised the 'nk' on the end to such a degree that she actually made a distinct clicking sound. I wish I could have made soundwaves solid and punch her.

    Relevant.

    I'm a bit surprised that "whatever" is at the top, but certainly agree with "you know what I mean". You know what I mean?

    "At the end of the day" is a special pet peeve of mine, because my mum always says it. She thrives on cliche. :(

    Harry?

    Agreed, the more long-standing cliches can be as annoying as the linguistic fads of today, man.

    Yep. It's one of the most common spelling mistakes on the internet.

    Heh, I guess that shows the standard of spelling on EG. Or at least the non-conforming nature of the spelling mistakes we do tend to make.

    Yep, "whatever" is pretty annoying. As are "innit" and "like".

    One of the girls in my office constantly uses 'turned around' as a pointless piece of filler.

    'so then I turned around to her and said no way am i going there with sharon, and shelli just turned around and said me neither, especially after sharon turned around and slagged off mark.'

    I can only assume her and her friends are perpetually revolving.

    You should turn around and tell her about this problem rather than turning around and telling people on the internet because it might seem like you have turned around and said it behind her back.

    I remember when Aswad were in the broom cupboard with Toby Anstis and Edd the Duck, and somebody phoned in and called them Twats!

    Good times!

    I recall a similar moment I think it was on Swap Shop, or whatever, and there was the UK Downhill ski guy, who was rubbish but the best english skiier we ever had (Martin Bell? Cant remember)....and in the phone-in someone called up and asked if he had a big cock (or summat - might have said "wanger" or "schlong" etc).
    My memory is clearly crystal clear on this moment. It was funny though.

    Healthful
    Healthfully

    Why? Just what purpose does it serve to elongate and complicate a word like this?
    Aren't "healthy" and "healthily" good enough for you? You fucking bag of dicks.

    Edit: actually, it turns out that "healthy" is a condition and "healthful" is a property. For example:
    This dried dog shit is not healthful.
    I have terrible arthritis, but with this cocktail of speed, morphine and ketamine, I feel healthy as a young moose.

    I still hate 'healthful' and 'healthfully' regardless.

    I hate the word "mend". Fuck knows why, it just sounds like a word only small children would use.

    Yep, I can definately agree with that.

    People who call grocery shopping "the messages".

    "I'm going to get the messages, do you want anything?"

    Fucking hell...

    Every time I hear someone on the news say "cyber-something" I want to punch people in the face.
