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?

Is it just me...
Or does it strike anyone else, as increasingly common that people are posting stories that should go in the 'pet peeves' qotw, rather than the 'common' qotw?

Also, I actually think using text speak is common, especially when translated to people's actual speaking. I have taken to reading people's status updates on Facebook, and commenting on them with the grammatical and spelling errors.
