Default OT: What words or phrases annoy you?

Tap instead of click.
App instead of program.
Fewer instead of less (even though more has no equivalent).
Slowed up instead of slowed down (slow is less speed, so must be down).
People who write computer programs that say "hello world" and nothing else - clearly that program doesn't have the intelligence to say hello.
Bothering to distinguish between burned and burnt.
Forward instead of forwards.

You might aswell call it a click. It's precisely the same action. I even see instructions on how to fix things say "tap or click", like phone users are too stupid to know that click can be done with your finger.

App instead of program.

They both sound stupid. But as an Aussie you're more used to excessive shortening of everything, like "arvo" would never be acceptable in the UK.

The pathetic are the ones that insist on using the "correct" one.

Speed, the auto-contradicting senile sociopath, blabbered, again:

FLUSH the two subnormal sociopathic cretins' endless absolutely idiotic
blather

--
TYPICAL retarded "conversation" between sociopath Rodent and sociopath
Birdbrain from August 26th 2018:

Birdbrain: "I have one head but 5 fingers."

Senile Rodent: "Obvious lie. You hairy legged cross dressers are so inbred
that you all have two heads."

Birdbrain: "You're the one that likes hairy legs remember?"

Senile Rodent: "The problem isnt the hairy legs, it's the gross inbreeding
that
produces two headed unemployables like you."

Birdbrain: "So why did you mention hairy legs?"

Senile Rodent: "Because that's what those who arent actually stupid enough
to shave their legs have."

Birdbrain: "You only have hairy legs if both of the following are true:
1) You're quite far back on the evolutionary scale.
2) You haven't learned what a razor is for."

Senile Rodent: "Only a terminal ****wit or a woman shaves their legs."

Birdbrain: "There is literally zero point in having hair all over your
body."

Senile Rodent: "There is even less point in wasting your time changing what
you are born with."

Also. i.e. instead of e.g. People get that wrong more than half of the

understand Latin, they should use English. Maybe they should use
English even if they do understand Latin. It looks like an affectation,
even in books.

I also don't like "different than". It should be "different from".

That makes sense if you're talking about a phone.

App instead of program.


Definitely. The whole process of ignoring computer and writing only
about phones annoys me.

Fewer instead of less (even though more has no equivalent).


Yes, people should get that right.

Slowed up instead of slowed down (slow is less speed, so must be down).


Doesn't bother me. But it is interesting that people say both and
mean the same thing.

People who write computer programs that say "hello world" and nothing else - clearly that program doesn't have the intelligence to say hello.


My own car radios have all been factory, but the truck I'm borrowing
says "Hi there" and something like Have a nice day, when I turn it on or
off.

Bothering to distinguish between burned and burnt.


It hasn't come up. I suppose people get it right or I might notice.

Forward instead of forwards.


Havben't noticed.


Also. i.e. instead of e.g. People get that wrong more than half of the
time, and in reverse too, wrong more than half the time. If they don't
understand Latin, they should use English. Maybe they should use
English even if they do understand Latin. It looks like an affectation,
even in books.

I also don't like "different than". It should be "different from".


One example that illustrates the lamentable level of education in
England despite the free and comprehensive schooling from age
5 to age 18 is the use of, "should of" as a misunderstood,
"should've", which is a contraction of, "should have"

People who use clichés or standard phrases, but get them the wrong way round
so they make no logical sense: "cheap at half the price" (it should be
"cheap at twice the price" if you mean "very cheap") and that Americanism "I
could care less": no, you *don't* mean that, it makes no sense; you mean "[I
care so little that] I could *not* care less".

Then there's the ultimate "should of" ("I should of noticed that you were
wearing a new dress"). Grrrr. "Should have"... And that makes its way into
written English, so it's not just sloppy/hurried speech.


The thing that really makes my strangling-fingers start fidgeting (!) is
American-style business-meeting bull****: "leverage" (always pronounced the
US way - levveridge, even by Brits), "blue-sky thinking", "thinking out of
the box", "OpEx and RatEx", "run that up the flagpole and see who salutes",
"Reaching out [to someone]" etc. I suppose it's an offshoot of business
letter clichés from earlier times, such as "I beg to inform you that...",
"Assuring you of our best intentions at all times, I remain your loyal
servant" (*), and "Please find enclosed/attached..." (what's wrong with
"Here is..."?).


(*) Someone overdosed on the Uriah Heep obsequiousness tablets! So cringing
that it's prostrate. FFS, just say "Yours sincerely/faithfully" depending
whether you started with "Dear [name]" or "Dear Sir/Madam". Except that
addressing "Dear Sir/Madam" is not sufficiently gender-inclusive for the
Wokesters of today.

I never use any of those, nothing at the start or the end.

I don't even use Yours at the end because I never am their anything.

You don't click anything with a smartphone.


You might aswell call it a click. It's precisely the same action. I even
see instructions on how to fix things say "tap or click", like phone users
are too stupid to know that click can be done with your finger.


What about folks with disabilities who look and blink? Why don't they include
that?

Personal attacks from those who troll show their own insecurity. They cannot
use reason to show the message to be wrong so they try to feel somehow
superior by attacking the messenger.

They cling to their attacks and ignore the message time and time again.

Visitation is for bishops only.

That damned yankee phrase I cant think of for the moment.


Cayn't get theyah from heeyah.


Nar, not that one. Said when telling someone to do something
immediately. Still cant think of it but that's just my dyslexia.


Post haste? Yeah, I could guess forever almost and still never hit the
right one.
