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?

We've got the worst of both worlds. Lots of posh idiots and lots of chav idiots. You can always tell because everyone has their own uniform. The Daily Mail is read by all. In my town it's rare to see a black person. The countryside is lovely, yes, but the towns are full of retards.

And an estate in my town has one of the biggest heroin problems in the country.
