    I agree with "bruv." It is the caravan equivalent of "mate."
    The thing with "mate" is that it tends to be a southern colloquialism, as a southerner I use it...but agree it sounds awful and I try to make a point of not using it.

    Reading a report sent to me at work. It reads:

    "The general trend is clearly one of increasing traffic and we believe it
    gives us a great platform now from which to push on and begin looking at
    how we can turn the brand into a thought leader in the space.
    "

    mmmm, nice.

    I blame universities insistence that essays have to be a certain number of words for that sort of nonsense binky.

    When people say axed instead of asked. Cunts the lot of 'em

    Also a guy at work says pacific instead of specific. Seriously, how fucking difficult is it?

    I agree with this. Although I'm not going to grow a moustache in support either. I'm not in the habit of bragging to people about the fact that I give money to charity, so I'm not going to wear a sign literally in the middle of my fucking face that says the same thing. If you want to give money to charity, give money to charity. Just do it with dignity.

    It's 'phenomenon' for me - I keep adding syllables to it. Plus it always gets that muppets song stuck in my head.

    Without question, the current trend on film trailers' voiceovers to announce the upcoming release date of said film as 'Out May Ten' and the like. It seems stating 'May 10th' is not cool enough for us Brits. Also noticed an automated VoiceMail service using this format voiced clearly by a British female and it just sounded even more retarded, so try- hard and lame. Jesus wept.

    Oh and people's inability to distinguish between 'there', 'they're' and 'their', I think that 'there' is fast becoming a favourite for everything, might as well remove the other two from the English language altogether.

    Also, Americans describing everything positive as 'GOOD' and should someone be offensive, they are described as 'MEAN'. Quite retarded in itself.

    Omitting the 'th/rd/st' seems to be a standard way of saying dates in American. I guess it stems from their retarded date system. But you're absolutely right that it should never be said that way in English english.

    I've heard the phrase "how do you square that circle?" 3 times today in respect of the Greek / Eurozone situation. This needs to stop, BBC.

    On that subject, one thing I have trouble saying is 6th. God it's embarrassing...

    Oh yeah. I really hate that 'coming June one' thing on trailers these days. This is a new thing right?

    Silly Americans trying to rub off their modified English on us. But I wholly expect tha' kids to be saying dates like that soon. Just like they say 'can I get' when they mean 'can I have'. No, you can't 'get' a wkd..I'll get it for you.

    Ha! It took me some time to learn the proper answer to that. In the beginning, I used to give honest, detailed answers and it was always embarrassing to realize that the person who asked didn't really care.

    @marilena

    I still go into small details myself.

    To be fair though, when I say "How're you?"/"how're you doing?", for me, I'm actually interested. Tell me what's going on in your life. I push for it too. None of this "How're you?" "I'm fine." business. I'm not here to make small talk, I hardly make small talk, in person, on the phone, text/email, whatever.
    So when someone asks me that, I go into it a full blown conversation. It's contents of that that lead to other stuff, otherwise what's the point?
    If you don't wanna talk, don't talk.

    "How're you?"

    "I'm fine, thanks, and you?"

    "Yeah, I'm good."

    "Good."

    "...."

    "Hmmm.."

    "Ok then, bye."

    "See you later, nice catching up."

    I'd rather eat a Stanley blade.

    I hate people who actually answer that question properly. I just want to make small talk not hear your fucking life story.

    Where I am at the moment, people refer to them as "PPT" pronounced "pee-pee-tee".

    It almost makes me miss the last place where it was called a deck.

    I thought I'd only have to kill one of them before the rest took the hint, but no; it seems I'll have to kill every last one of the fuckers.

    "Bloody" - as in "that bloody game" etc. Just feels a bit, er, naff.. which leads me onto...

    "Naff" - never has a word so closely matched its own definition

    "Lush"

    A friend of mine does that all the bloody time. Winds me right up. You say, "alright?" as in "hello" and they say, "no actually, blah blah blah blah blah". I mean, fine, you're not alright, but can you at least wait until the pleasantries are out of the way before you tell me about it? ;)
