So, as we move forward towards transformational change we need to look to new horizons as we get off of the day to day routine of silo working and ensure we are very clear that at this moment in time we touch base offline and reach out to get some quick wins by close of play to ensure that actions are met and we can each bring to the table some game changing low hanging fruit. Any new ideas ping them to me, as i'll be hot-desking in the break out zone with my helicopter view hat on.

I've just remembered why I was so glad to take early retirement!

I've moved this thread to another Topic Board. It was in "All Things Flying" but, as it appears to me to more "No Things Flying Whatsoever" I thought it was better in "Chit Chat"; t least that way it can wander all over the place without being "off topic" as such!

Beginning sentences with ‘So’ is bad enough but worse is starting them with ‘Basically’. My son does this and now the grandkids have picked it up. Basically, it’s basically annoying.

'To be honest', appearing at the beginning or end of a statement. Does it mean everything else they say isn't?

Starting a sentence with the word "obviously" is not only superfluous but also rather insulting...

And whilst I was typing those "donkeys' ears", I was reminded of just how annoying it is when people make the double two fingered gesture during conversation!

Roll on spring - perhaps we'll all be a bit less tetchy when if the weather improves.

My current bugbear is the BBC use of "across".

Our reporters will be all across this story.

Listen for updates on this story across the BBC.

Hear (yet) more football developments across the afternoon on Radio 5.

It certainly makes me cross, but not across!

Don't get me started on the 'words' fuz, or 'fuse', for example:

'Go ahead and attach the stab to the fuz. It's super easy. Good job'

My poor ears.....

Or the good old double negative:

Youth: 'I aint done nothin'

Grumpy old man: 'So you haven't done nothing, so that means you must have done something then?'

Youth: 'weirdo'

I remember one lunchtime at my primary school, the boy in front of me at the serving hatch who said, "I don't want no custard, Miss" getting a large dollop of the curdled lumpy yellow gunge (nowadays, it would come with a Hazchem label) deposited over his crumble. As far as I can recall, he never did grasp the logic...

It's really weird how on this forum you can never predict which threads will run and run.

Enjoy. angry 2

Apart from the insincerity of a one word platitude, is this an invitation or a command?

 

And while we're in full grumble mode, don't get me started on the practice of asking "Can I get two pints of lager and a packet of crisps?"

No.

That's why they employ bar staff!

I have been getting very irritated at people starting a sentence with "So".

I am very glad that I am not the only one.
