    Because it's fun to point out the differences in language and get our rage on and shit.

    I get annoyed when they eliminate the preposition "on" when referring to a day during which an event occurred or is due to occur. To wit:

    "Fifty-six people were killed in a school shooting Friday. The President will address the families personally Monday. A wake will be held at the school Wednesday."



    Post 'em up!

      I deal with colleagues in Houston regularly and 2 things they say really annoy me.

      Firstly, when they say "Yes Sir" constantly and "y'all"

                "Thats un-American"...... especially when its an event/action not even in America, or being done by someone who's not American.

                (The term "un-Australian" generally shits me too, but I have yet to hear it used in regards to matters/people that clearly aren't Australian.)


                ..."World police", "liberating", "bringing freedom" etc, I'm sure there are lots more.

                    5 years ago enjoying a lovely long weekend in the Swiss Alps in late spring, sitting down at a pub having lunch with a beautiful view of the mountains and a tableload of yanks behind me were pissing and moaning about everything generally not being like it is in America.

                    Then one of them pipes up and says "this place is just like the Rockies (Rocky Mountains) only the Rockies is cheaper!"

                        How about this one.

                        "Son of a bitch" is a favoured pejorative of our seppo friends. Of course it is used so frequently that it comes out fast, as one word: "sonovabitch".

                        But what about when you're addressing more than one ne'er-do-well? You would think they would be sons of bitches, or "sonsabitches".

                        Nope. "Sonovabitches".

                              Thank you TS, we need this thread, now more than ever. I hope it doesn't all go to heck. (Good luck with that). I'll come visit you soon, I'm sure there'll be more - you do the math - but right now I need the bathroom.

                              Yes it does annoy me that the country that spewed out Anna Nicole Smith, CHarlie Sheen, Paris Hilton and string cheese in a can, is somehow too prim and pious to say "hell" or "toilet".
