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."

What stuff do you think is common?

Every time this gets posted again you're there like a hamster up Neil Tennants arse.

Why bring hamsters into a womble discussion? Wombles not good enough for Neil's barking spider?
