So "needing snookers" is not what a player needs. He need points for fouls. Which can happen without snookers. 

Needing is the operative word. If someone says you needs snookers, you are no don't in soapy bubble.

Try the word ‘have’ please, it’ll look better and it will actually make sense too.

Language evolution. If something is used often enough, it become common usage. See some of the shite that has entered the dictionary, especially text short hand used on here. Gargabe but hey, that's the rules. 

Personally, I think should've sounds like should of. Anyway Scottish people who say Haitch and Jay instead of Aitch and Jye do my tits in.  Bunch of slaves.

 

Oh and be a good lad and tell the 3 folk on here, it's their, not thier.  Viking pronouns need to be pronounced correctly, thanks.

Peoples vote.

Who apart from people participated in the last vote?

Though having asked I can think of a few irritating responses.

"Journey". Not in the sense of travelling from A to B but by simply having done something or had something happen.

 

Used exclusively by wanks who tend to have sime sort of bed wetting story of their journey to wankdom.

He was the minister of Duddingston Kirk in Edinburgh, and he referred to his congregation as his bairns.  The congregation used to say of themselves, "We're a' Jock Thamson's bairns", and the saying spread.

Pronouncing ‘Definitely’ as ‘Defin-8-ly’ or ‘Defin-ah-tly’. 

 

There are even a few (including on Kickback) who manage to evade spell-check or autocorrect to use ‘definately’ in their Internet ramblings.

Politicians saying "Let's be clear....." at the start of a sentence.

 

I think George Osbourne started it and it has mutated.

 

I think it's "let me be clear" and that oik probably didn't start it as I doubt he would be a leader of anything. But it's definitely a politician thing to say.

Also almost all modern "business speak" (for want of a better description) pisses me off. You know the sort of crap, blue sky thinking etc etc.

What's that other one, when the boss wants everyone to come together with ideas. Can't mind, but it does my head in.

Ending an email 'Kind regards'. Especially the type that might tell you something like you've got to work 10 days on the trot. It 'fair rips my knitting', which is another one.
