This is a question Common

Freddy Woo writes, "My wife thinks calling the front room a lounge is common. Worse, a friend of hers recently admonished her daughter for calling a toilet, a toilet. Lavatory darling. It's lavatory."

My own mother refused to let me use the word 'oblong' instead of 'rectangle'. Which is just odd, to be honest.

What stuff do you think is common?

I don't like to be judgemental
since I grew up in a 'common' household, 'leccy' on a meter, bored kids breaking into cars along the street, all that. But what mystifies me is the (chavvy) women who, upon hearing their boyfriend would like to marry them, decides they want a fairytale wedding. And not a fairly tasteful affair in a small church, I'm talking Barbie Fairy Princess.


It's not so much wanting a huge dress heavy enough to do your back in, but then wanting a tacky perspex coach to parade about in?


... I notice the only decent links were Daily Mail ones. Does that say something?

^ This.
On both counts, which is another reason I don't want to live with my parents. Can't stand the Daily Heil.

Hang on?!
The top one isn't even a woman. She was 16! Like hell I'd let my child marry so young. And I wouldn't be stupid enough to pay for it either.

Bad parenting.

Imagine my surprise
at the mention of Jordan, as the first thing I thought when I saw rhese was "this is that dastardly evil genius Jordan's handywork I deem...."

Dresses like the one in the top link
are often travellers.

I say this without being anti-gypsy, this is a fact. When a girl from a travelling family gets married (often very young) the size and expense of the dress is seen as a matter of great pride to the family of the bride.

That perspex coach has grisly connotations.
I seem to remember that it (or one like it) was built for a dying child and then used as the hearse at her funeral.

Read about this in one of my mother's magazines. The ones she does the puzzles in before I get them, grr.

What do you bet the 16 year old meringue has got divorced by now?
