It doesn't wind me up as much as it does you, but I always notice it. I don't include such terms in my lectures. I especially don't like it when bacteria or viruses are said to decide to evolve. Hmm.

Biscuits that break and drop into your cuppa after you've just dunked them are an Abomination unto Nuggan.

The bit at the end of a radio ad when the announcer reads through the Ts & Cs so fast that it's unintelligible. Can only assume this is to imitate the small print which is impossible to read without using a magnifying glass (in my case) :evil:

The travel guy on Smooth Radio Breakfast (hosted by Simon Bates) who gives us the travel news, interspersed with "Simon" every couple of lines.

YOU'RE TELLING US, DIPSTICK, NOT HIM.

Arrrggh.

Really? Is that their slogan in the UK?
In Germany it's "Carglass repariert, Carglass tauscht aus" - the strange thing being until some years ago the company was named Autoglass here, too. Obviously "Auto" was not cool enough.

Anyway, my last complaint must have been heard by Nuggan. Today was microbiology again, and a great opportunity to say something about smart viruses was not used. Instead, she said something about selection pressure and how the viruses best adapted to the environment prevail. :D

Traffic Wardens are all Abominations unto Nuggan

ANYONE who calls you by your first name AT LEAST ONCE in every sentence. Usually over the phone and usually trying to sell something :x As a woman of a certain age I have been known to tell them I would prefer to be called Mrs D..... and it's rude to assume they can call me Janet. They often go away after that :clap: Oh, the POWER!!
