Animal cruelty.

People in restaurants talking loudly.
Who wants to hear their business while out trying to enjoy a meal.

"Off of" as in "Her off of the telly".

Surely we didn't used to say that, is it a new thing?

H1954 Thu 10-Jun-21 16:38:05

Sun glasses in doors i.e. Shops etc.
Needy people
Insincere neighbours who stab you in the back
Writing of instead of have...........drives me nuts!

I'd better stop now or I'll be hear all day!

Anyone saying REEsearch, instead of reSEARCH.
When I’m a dictator, anyone guilty of this will be thrown into a rat infested dungeon for a fortnight.

Callistemon, Brits who say β€˜math’ instead of β€˜maths’ will be included in that. 😈

Van drivers who use my driveway as a turning point

Grandma70s Thu 10-Jun-21 17:02:44

I’m with you on REEsearch, Witzend, Cringe.

I suppose math instead of maths is legitimate in America, but I still don’t like it.
