networkn: People who mispronounce H


And how is the correct way? haaaay-ch, or, A-ch?


This is interesting http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-11642588

personally I don't care either way

Good article. I watched an old Lynn of Tawa clip recently and was struck by how normal she sounds.

Those people that park at the pump when it is busy and then go buy anything but fuel.

People who stop in front of the only diesel pump at the gas station then buy petrol. There were at least another 4 pumps they could have chosen instead. They then give you a funny look because they are thinking "why are you waiting behind me when there are another 4 pumps available?"

Something that only diesel car owners have to deal with. And add in browsing the shop, getting coffee, going to the toilet ect. All while you are still waiting for them to stop blocking that 1 diesel pump.

Had a similar thing at an old shell that had some pumps with only 91 on them, and all in a long line. Think it was the newton road one. I will wait for the 95 at the far pump thanks.

People who think their option is the only option.

Posted on Twitter about Skinny mobile broadband option - $55 for 60GB mobile data on a "fixed" WiFi router with gigabit ports and some people said "I can get unlimited [fibre|VDSL] for $89"

Well, yes. YOU can. Others can't because they may not have fibre or VDSL available. Or some people rather spend $55 on Internet than $89.

Whatever the reason because YOU can doesn't make this a bad product. It actually exceptional in what it does.

Littering really annoys me, especially at places like lookouts, rivers and other public spaces etc....just pure laziness. I came across a few people drinking beers at my local swimming spot and when they got up to leave they left their empties behind. I reminded them to take them with them and they sheepishly picked them up. And people dropping ciggie buts out of their cars pi$$es me right off.

People on a train who sit on the aisle seat and leave an empty window seat on a train they know will get full, act oblivious when people are standing in the aisle and only allow somebody to sit on the spare seat when asked.

So lets just consider the repeat offenders on daily commuters where it is blatantly obvious that is not the case.

jmh: American spelling. 


For me it's English spelling that pxxses me off. Lets stick these letters the wrong way around, or stick a needless u in a word that doesn't need it. And people that insist English spelling is the "proper" one despite being a vastly smaller population and a country with much fewer connections to.


Agree fully. Same goes for pronunciation. Potato tomato.

They should holiday in Singapore, and take extra funds to cover the heavy fines.
