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?

when you chuck an unwanted appliance in the bin, it magically vanishes into the 10th dimension, leaving no trace of itself behind. It certainly does NOT go to a landfill site where its constituent parts will take decades to rot.
