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 used to find it quite rude when
people started eating whilst I was in the middle of enjoying a cigarette.

at uni
was at the house of some very good friends of mine. most of us smoked.

at one point one of the girls came in while we were enjoying a smoke and started to eat something (I believe it was jam on a cream cracker or something equally weird)

she said it was rude and unpleasant to smoke while someone was eating.

to say she got rebuked is putting it mildly.

smoking while others eat is rude and I wouldn't do it, but to come into a room where a load of people are smoking, start eating a measly little weird snack, and then complain that they are smoking while you eat is ridiculous.

we made sure she knew it
