Another very irritating one is when you ask someone 'Have you got....?' and they reply with 'I do!' It should be 'I have' (or haven't depending on the answer of course).
If you ask 'Do you have.....?' then by all means reply with 'I do', (or don't), but not if the question doesn't have the word 'do' in it!

Oh, another one which is highly interesting for us Germans. When I learned English in 5th grade we only learned "have got". "Have" has got to have a "got". wink So the conversations in our school book would look like this: "Mr Connor has got a car. Has he got his car keys? Yes, he has." Now seriously: who in the world uses "have got" for real? At least in the USA, nobody ever does, except for phrases such as "there has got to be a better way" where the 'got' has a strong accentuation. Other than that it is non-existant. Is it a British thing, is it old-fashioned, or what is it?

And when the answer should be 'yes' don't say 'absolutely' instead, say yes! And when the answer is 'no' just say 'no', don't say 'no, no, no, no,' as if we don't understand the word when it's said the first time! angry

That'll do for now....... wink


It's not just me then? wink

A very stupid trend, maybe it's a "cool & trendy" thing, or maybe they're all Peter Gabriel fans?

I was wondering if I was the only person who notices this in documentaries. For example you can be watching a programme on archaeology & the presenter says to the expert 'what evidence do we have that King Tutankhamun etc etc'..... Invariably the expert will answer 'So.....'

The stupid republican convention! When they bought out the Benghazi lady, all I could think of was the Barry Williams show. The Donald Trump show is so much worse than Barry Williams.

Nothing but blanket Olympic coverage on BBC4 for weeks. It’s meant to be the culture-related channel. rolleyes

There’s plenty of Olympics on the other BBC channels, Red Button etc for anyone who’s interested in them.

When my PC goes through an update and then turns back on the sound "enhancements" that I had turned off years ago without telling me rolleyes

Basically it compresses all dynamics in the name of getting a "big sound". Stupid!

PC updates... we completely lost Windows 10 two days ago after updates occurred. We've got it back now. Once again I will have to reinstall iTunes. I hate this because every time I have to do it I lose all the play counts of my songs.

To be fair, your initial question does tend to lead newish members to believe that you don't own the CD. Why else use spotify? On your phone? Save the rip to it. He wasn't TELLING you, he was making helpful suggestions based on available facts.

When people switch through songs every thirty seconds. They only want to hear the catchy chorus. They can't even make it through a three minute pop song. It seems as if I'm the only one my age that can listen to a song all the way through. There's just no patience with my generation. angry
