My only way of keeping up with my cultural roots is via the BBC and occasional forays onto this site(which doesn't really help:smirk:), I have noticed a tendency amongst the UK population to begin an answer to any question with the word "So".

Anyone else noticed it, get annoyed with it?44

So, it's commonplace and gets on my tits. As do those asking for things by saying "Can I get". Doesn't even fooking make sense.

Long (Gordon Brown like) pauses between sentences, in which his gob drops open but no words come out, is the one that annoys me :thumbdown:

One of my pet hates (sure it's been discussed here before), and it tends to be used by people obsessed with their own importance who also tend to use AQI just to make my teeth grind a bit more

There is also the Aussie tendency to end every sentence on an upward cadence as if every statement is a question...?

There is a tendency amongst some people to reply to questions with... "yeah, for sure, its a......", Leon Haslam uses this a lot in BSB when he is asked a question :angry:

and

SWIMBO started using "innit, ennit, dunnit" after watching Eastenders for 20 f!$%ing years

and

"its true ennit" is another one of my f!$%ing hates

and

I will think of some more soon!:smile:

That all seemed to stem from when they started showing the Aussie soaps over here about 30 years ago :lol:
My pet hate is when someone uses the word "arks" in place of "ask" :frown:

Correcting my pronunciation of 'aitch' by putting an aitch in front of it and stressing it in a condescending way can be mildly annoying.

My DAB radio in the garage can only receive about 6 BBC radio channels due to poor digital signal whereas in Swansea in work there are about 30 channels. What really winds me up is all the gangsta tunes played on R1 all the time. So many slang words and bulls!$% which the young uns seem to think is da bomb init!

Incorrect phone dialling codes get me.
Especially on company vehicles and notepaper.

There are no such codes as 02380, 02392, 02476, 0207, 0208 etc

My land line starts 02476 - most of them do around here.
The area code is 024 since the last big change in dial codes and the 76 was tagged on between the new area code and the old local number at that time.
Most towns just got an extra 1 added to their area code at that time.
Most local numbers here start off with 76 but some newer ones start 77.
I'm trying not to let it hack me off when I see it set out wrongly, which is most times you see it written. :angry:

Correct, the AREA code is 024. The PHONE NUMBER is 76123456

Portsmouth and Scumland have the same code, 023. and you don't need it to dial each town.
Southampton now hav numbers beginning with 80,81 and 82. Portsmouth 92, 93 and I am sure 91 too.

"News" stories such as...

"Elton John/Little Orange Diver-Poof/ etc. is expecting a baby with his husband........."

No he isn't! They tossed each other off into a cup, that's where their involvement ended.

//Pedant Mode//
the leading '0' is not part of the area code
It tells the exchange what follows is a trunk call (not local)
