Marketing bollocks, buzzword bingo, or your mum saying "fudge" when she really wants to swear like a trooper. Let's ride the hockey stick curve of this top hat product, solutioneers.

Thanks to simbosan for the idea

cost
i hate it when someone says that an item ”costs dear” or ”costs expensive”.

The same rules apply in dutch and one wonderous day in secondary school i took the class gobshite down for this.

Her little red racist face didnt know where to look when a dirty foreign type had to educate her in the ways of her own language.

The way you're telling this story suggests that scoring a minor point on issues of grammar was the best thing that ever happened to you.

Re-read the post carefully
and you may understand why it does stand out as a particularly good day.

I also passed top of my year group in my secondary school Dutch class and was the only non-native.

Forgive me for regarding such triumphs as moderate to good rather than "minor" as you suggested.

And looking through your profile I would say that the below quote would suggest we may have one or two things in common. Except I was talking about Dutch Nationalist types ;-)

"What I want to know is this.
Why is it so many English Nationalist types can't actually communicate properly in the written form of the language of the country they purport to be so proud of?

I've never heard anyone say that
I feel sorry that you have to spend your days amongst people that do.
