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?

The gobshites on Henman Hill.
A better class of commoner but certainly well worth a few kilos of semtex.

Doubly so for those bastards at Wimbledon who used to try to be the last to shout 'C'mon Tim' before the service.

(Same with the last QOTW now that I come to think of it.)
