SO.
Previous | 1 | Next

Have I just started to notice this or could it be a really fucking irritating new trend perpetrated by on-message fuckwitts?

Have you noticed this? It is seemingly more annoying than an upward inflection and I'm sure it didn't used to happen.

People (mostly lesbians or suspected benders), upon being given the opportunity to spout bollocks now seem to be kicking off in this way..

'...and now I'm joined in the studio by Hysteria Breakdown, spokeswoman for Vaginas for Peace. Hysteria, just how do you propose to elevate 120% of African child lesbians from poverty by 2017?"

'So .Our research has shown that the main cause of child poverty in African Lesbian babies is that around 33% of white middle-class men are still failing to be apologetic enough for existing. We simply need to make them apologise more often..'

It's happening all the time on R4 in the morning.

So much so that I've started listening to 6music instead.

And 'can I get' when ordering things. I would expect to leap the counter and serve myself if I used this and was answered 'yes'.

Yep, it annoys me too. Essentially it's a way of getting the listeners attention before starting what you're about to say.

A little rude when you're already listening.

The one that's annoying me at the moment (and I realise this is an age things as T'Internet generation are becoming leaders etc) is when you hear people on the radio or telly speak in 3 or 4 word word bursts, with a raised inflection on the last word.

What we’re seeing….in Britain today… is a sense of isolation… and frustration with government…… and their stance on Europe…

I have expect them to finish with …like totally!!!

Tony Blair was one of the first in this country to do it, drove me mad. I know why he was doing it, so that even the most dimwitted could follow what he was saying (after all that was his target audience)

I doubt there was much he ever said that I'd have agreed with but I could never listen to him speaking for this precise reason. It made him sound like a retard.

"Can you..."

I had a letter from the doctors surgery yesterday, in which it asked "can you phone to make an appointment". I felt like calling them and when they answered, replying "I'm just checking that I can call the surgery. It appears that I can. Thanks."

Of course this wouldn't make a blind bit of difference, as they have no idea that the phrase that they're looking for is "would/will you".

Can != will

Plump eyes?

Both would and will are pretty ambitious. I mean

"would you phone the surgery?".

"Would I phone the surgery when?? If I was sick, of course I would. Would I phone the surgery if I found out my MoT had run out, probably not. Sorry I don't understand the question!!

I'm not sure, it depends on my mood.

Haha, point taken.

Looks like I shan't be calling the surgery.

Yes, yes, yes, I'm doing that all the time. You don't have to remind me every 10 seconds.

Surely the only way to be 100% certain that you can make an appointment is to actually phone and try to make an appointment.
