"Excuse me sir. Seeing as how the VP is such a VIP, shouldn't we keep the PC on the QT, because if it leaks to the VC, you could end up an MIA, and then we'd all be put on KP." ~Robin Williams in Good Morning, Vietnam
And what's for lunch? KFC chicken.
no one has ever said anything to me in conversation other than along the lines of "what do you carry". I'm in KY and I've certainly never had anyone ask "what do you CCDW?".
I hate all the Military acronyms you need to carry a DOD dictionary
a couple that bug me are "orginal copies" and etcetera and etcetera
I am alright with being picky on grammar... Wish more people were.
I have more!
It's not a bumber, it's a bumper.
Using its and it's incorrectly.
"On my person", while being proper, just sounds stupid to me.
I will also not be ashamed to be the guy that corrects the word clip when used to describe a magazine, get used to it.
as long as we're venting about stuff that's not worth getting worked up about and yet still makes us cringe, I've got a few;
-calling your LCP an "ElsiePea" or humanizing any firearm with cuteness.
-calling a gun a "piece" unless you happen to be Dick Tracy.
-qualifying something's worth within the geographic confines of Earth. "best truck on the planet". (I figured the planet we're on by myself, thanks)
-the "goes bang" illustration of firearm reliability. I'm not 5 and I know what a reliable gun sounds like.
-when someone ends their opinion with an all caps PERIOD. as if that adds credibility to their statement and sets it above all others. "oh he must be right, he spelled period"
-the designated hitter
The PERIOD one cracked me up!
ATM here in Wisconsin is also known as a "Tyme Machine". Once in Ill I did not know they do not have that brand of ATM.....asked a person in a store, if there is a Tyme machine for some cash..... needless to say the look I received indicated that I was nuts. Funny thing is I did not catch the error well until I left the store.
How about preceding a statement with FACT:... or ending with ... and that's a fact
Know someone who says "permit to conceal to carry..."
You don't understand .... (usually said by someone who really doesn't understand)
People who yell b/c they're losing a discussion as if the louder they are, the righter they are (fess up, who just experienced a facial tick)
Thunder71, I suggest you stay away from the Gulf Coast and the New England states :gah:
How about Archie Bunker: Case Closed
The last time someone asked for my "social" they outdid themselves by pronouncing it "socia" and I wound up writing a letter to their boss about proper communication and the benefits of keeping jargon in its proper place. After I calmed down enough I realized it probably would do no good anyway so I didn't send it. It's all ready for the next time though!
