It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Enjoy the match, enjoy your meal, enjoy your day off, enjoy yourself etc etc but not 'enjoy'. Horrible. Makes my arse cheeks quiver.


But what if some smug twat (probably a chef) claps their hands and then says it? That's OK surely?

"Impactful".

I don't know that there's anything actually wrong with it, but there's something about it that usually sounds ridiculous to me.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Not sure this hasn't presented itself here before, but making a relationship with a client "sticky" is a turn of phrase that is getting my goad up.

It is time to take conscious living to the next level. The future will be a quantum ennobling of serenity. The network of non-locality is now happening worldwide.

There is something far worse than starting a sentence with "so"

And that is, "okay, so"

Or starting a reply in an interview with "Listen!"

Or worse " For sure "

Why did sportsmen begin starting every reply with " For sure "

And eventing is a perfectly cromulant word, it is what horsey types do at the weekend, or over a long weekend if it is 3 day eventing.
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next

I said the word "Wangle" today, and was grossed out for the rest of the day. I don't know how it's never been called out before?
