People (like my darling wife) who insist in recounting conversations they have had virtually verbatim. " and she said to me"' "and I said to her". For God's sake get to the point or even better tell someone who might be in the least bit interested.
Does the conversation normally involve at least three different women who all get refered to as 'She'?

And then when you lose track of who said what to who, you are an idiot because it's obvious which one she is talking about?

"melt"

And these buffoons who have added "he/him" or "she/her" to their LinkedIn profiles in an attempt to show that they are all-inclusive.

So, your name is Clive and you're a man? Well, I never.

I got an email yesterday and the email signature had this on. First time I've heard of it and I wrote back taking the piss as I thought it must be a mistake.
I was dumbstruck when they wrote back with the explanation and I went all Richard Littlejohn for a short while.

I am dipping my considerable toe into the online dating game (foolish I know....) and the biggest introduction urghhhs for me are:
  • Queen
  • Hun
  • Babe
Sorry, I'm being a bit slow here, but are these men using these words?

if so, why? What's the matter with them ?

I'd give them all a swerve if I were you

Nothing inherently Igor, it's just that every politician, newspaper and anyone trying to sound smart is using it right now. Literally.

One more. Although we were probably not the first to use the expression, or even far from it, since KUMB began 25 years ago claiming to be "by the fans for the fans" nearly every independent website/blog/social media account appears to say it.

In fact, the phrase returns 1,550,000 results on Google.

'lived experience'..... presumably, as opposed to what you experience when you're dead?
