I get really fucked off by people using phrases that are just not right.............

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. for example

    sodding news readers that say ..........'ahead of' eg., 'ahead of next weeks summit', where the fuck did that come from? whats wrong with 'before'???

    Also when I hear people saying that something was decimated, like its a bad thing, if it's decimated, there is 90% left, thats good, isnt it?

    I know if my wallet contents were decimated after a night on the lash I'd be pretty happy about that!

    People trying to sound sophisticated by saying ...'going forward'! wtf the matter with 'in future'????

    I serioulsy want to strangle any cunt that says someone or thing is 'iconic' , no they/it's not they/it's just slightly memorable.

    All cunts I reckon

    Disengage pedantic rant mode

    can't be arsed to correct tryping, spelling Nazi's do your worst!
  2. Couldn't agree more. It gets right up my goat when people get things wrong!

  3. I must say that I'm pretty easy going really. Folk not pulling their weight at work grips my shit, but looking around at some of the women here you'd need a Chally to pull their fucking weight.

    I must admit that people saying "can I get a...." in a coffee or sandwich shop bugs me. When did everyone start talking like spams?

  4. People who use an apostrophe for a plural vex me a little, I must admit.

    Surely the title of this thread should be:

    ''I get really fucked off by people using phrases that are incorrect.''

  7. I get a wee bit annoyed when people say I'm done or similar, when they should say I'm finished.

    Look, I need some new boots - any recommendations?

    Already done?

    Fuck it, let's have a grammar thread. Open a whole new bag of worms...
  9. I think you should end yours, at once, by cutting your own head off with a pruning-saw.
  10. In fact what they should say is "I have finished".

  11. Quite right.
  12. Yea man totaly. Itz soooo lik anoying wen peoples cant spel, innit?
    wat r u? lik a grammr freek or wot?
  13. Actually what does rather annoy me is when the apostrophe isn't in the right place.
    Like "FISH AND CHIP'S"
    Or anything written by an indian food seller.
  14. " I get really fucked off by people,s using words that are wrong."

    Fixed it Ravers old bean..chin chin!!
  15. People who say 'bag of worms' when 'can of worms' should be used.

    It's just idleness creeping in really.

    People who swear for no cunting reason. What's the fucking point?
