Time. Example: I haven't seen Susan for time.
Hell. Example: this cat cafe is hella good
and nobody's seen her.
In your example the real issue isn't the fact that they say time, more the fact that they DON'T say 'some'?
I am victorious.
Your analogy is falling apart like a house of cards.
Did the person say "I haven't seen Susan for time." or not?
ANSWER THE QUESTION!
I know you're mocking me, but I'm 100%, objectively, irrefutably correct on this one.
but I have reached the zen state of also just not caring.
`Yeah so this was on the tele last night`.
Blood = boiled.
Can't work out if yours has fallen flatter than my attempt. Don't think it has tbh.
Let's go Alton Towers
Are you going Tescos?
It's everywhere now though. This is the sign we're properly old. Also the number of Weezer albums that have come out since "my day".
back in the day!!!!!!!!!!
you are completely right.
the fuck is going on? am I still asleep?
ChintyLacroix said yesterday that she logged into Ello and it was just you talking to yourself. THINK ON THAT, JAPESY!
where it tells you to follow the writer on Twitter.
take that, chintzer
`I can't be bothered because Monday`
`I ate ALL of the biscuits because Wednesday`
`I want to ride a horse because horseriding`.
Stop it. Stop it all of you.
Oh and another one, when did `of` become obsolete:
`I went to the gym and did plenty reps`
No no no and NO.
Weren't you the one accusing me of being the death of creative language in the text/texted thread? I think you were.
Oh how the tables have turned!
(You're right on this one though)
I hate grammatical pedantry more than anything. `Oh you didn't follow some rules`. Give a shit. Nah wouldn't have been me.
This thread is more about `things people say that are fucking annoying`. Couldn't give a shit if they're grammatically coherent or whatever - it's just annoying.
Christ, that was over a year ago? Maybe I should let it go.
(I won't though)
That was a point about hypocrisy! I stand by it.
(Do you realise just how much relief I had upon clicking that thread that I didn't use the phrase `death of creative language`. I'd have killed myself for sure)
and some marketing girl said "oh we couldnt get the stand up because reasons". I thought the whole room was going to stab her.
Like "but what if the court was being totes unreasonable?"
*outta or just out
people have been using this for ages, get with it marckee
used instead of 'from...until...'.
ex. 'I'll be in a meeting 2 while 3'
do people just wake up and decide to use the wrong words one day
can't stop laughing to this one. Incredible. not even sure it's that good, it's just got me.
Nine While Nine on their first album, pop fans
'My working hours today are 9 while 5'.
Think i would have to stop the conversation if this happened.
first few times i heard someone say it I was looking around to see someone as offended by it as me
They're different round there.
what a way to make a living
- yo ed, where's the file at, man? i asked for it hours ago.
- sorry, it's been uploading for a minute/it's taking a minute to upload
My mate who lives in New York now says it constantly - 'been in Brooklyn for a minute' etc.
p.s. this is not Verbal but maybe he'll pick it up too
do you want bread with that, or no?
"Would you like bread with that or....?" Or what?>?
so I might say...
"I'm going bar, what do you want?"
"I'm going gym"
"I'm going shop, what do you want?"
Don't know where I've got that from
cause the 'the' is still there, its just silent
Haha what sort of a cunt says that?!?!?!
It's probably the worst word ever
`Yeah I'm coming to London soon, can I stop at yours?`
`Yeah I'll be there, I'm stopping at Susan's for the night`
You're not stopping at mine with that kinda talk. Get out!
I will try to better myself.
To be honest I don't have a problem with it. It's more my mate who moved to Nottingham who never said it before and now he says it all the time. Grr. God I hate it when people become influenced by their surroundings!
I've re-read your post 5 times and can't work out whats weird? Whats the word that annoys you :s
instead of `staying (at yours)`.
I never knew this was a colloquialism! No way.
Goign through Glasgow which means theyre going to glasgow. Crazy alccy battered mars bar eating freaks
and I want no part of it
What's your opinion on 'knocking on'?
eg: 'I'll knock on yours at 7'
...but I like it. I really like it.
Sort it out, GeOff.
Glad to see you're stopping there. She doesn't get out much these days.
I worry about myself sometimes, I really do
You know not of what you're meddling with.
I always thought stopping at somebody's house was a normal turn of phrase really. Guess thats what you get from being from the midlands.
people use 'how' all the time here. either to mean 'why' or to mean 'hey'.
but I enjoy that one.
'how balonz, gonnae stop making threads?'
'cos they're shite'
but someone here has a car-shaped mouse, and if (as often happens) I have to show him something on his computer, he says 'would you like to drive'?
it belongs to my boss's boss but lives at the hotdesk.
My guy's one is red though, and a bit more pristine (no offence).
you're actually waving at the man in his bouncing lowrider whilst he stares at you and wanks
'guess what, Peter punched paul!'
:o 'is iiiit?'
Also: fuck Paul innit
:o 'is iiiiit?!'
:o 'shut up?!'
Peter's been on the wrong end of a questionable wealth distribution technique between him and Paul for ages now. Was only a matter of time before things kicked off.
talking about climbing all the time while wearing leather chaps and little else.
Bloke at work likes to add 'didn't I?' to his sentences, as in
"I went to the pub last night, didn't I?"
"I had a meeting this morning, didn't I?"
Sometimes amended to:
"I'm going for lunch, aren't I?"
"I went to the pub last night, yes?"
"I had a meeting this morning, yes?"
we are all just treading water until Elaina appears and the big fight starts.
(I had oreo cheesecake for breakfast so I'm a bit high)
You go beat him.
E.g. The fence needs painted. The job needs done. This thread needs closed.
Probably would've been at least a million votes in that over `Better Together`
doesn't everyone say that?
It'd be The fence needs to be painted. The job needs to be done. This thread needs to be closed.
That plate needs washed
That window needs cleaned
That shirt needs ironed
I have been told tediously dull stories by relations where each side of the half-remembered conversation starts with this, or "so she said to me, she said".
Also, people who insist on telling you all the people's names, they scrabble around trying to remember them when it doesn't matter. "So he said to me, he said.... oh what was his name, Kevin? Claude? Clyde? CLIVE - that was it. So Clive said to me, he said"....
and the South West, stretching down as far as Cornwall I have experienced this behaviour. Some people have regaled me with so many in depth stories about conversations they had I feel like I personally know them and their workmates by name, having never met them.
He come out
You will use your words to summon up my image in the minds of your readers?! Oh, no, you mean you'll write TO me.
They use this in films all the time, it's annoying.
"g'is it" or something
'Gis it here' is a valid phrase
Sometimes 'Gis us it here' too if I specifically want it
Go fuck yersen or get yersen fucked.
Not near us, though. Get thee over to yon field.
'I'm off down pub. I'm off up town.'
Or the particularly brief 'I'm off shop.'
(I won't have a word said against ^this)
You're up a mountain. It's cold. Why waste time on a 'the'? Your fellow climbers will know what you mean.
Meaning 'where is that?'
