Not on the subject of language but here's another thing which drives me insane... As a pedestrian, I'm waiting to cross the road. I could get across except for one car which is coming towards me. I wait for it to pass me. Then, after I've missed several opportunities to cross because of waiting for it, said car suddenly turns up a side road a few yards before it reaches me. No indication, nothing!! The driver must have seen me, I'm hovering around on the kerb and wearing a red coat!! I'm obviously of such little significance to this person that I don't even warrant the courtesy of an early indication - or any indication.
I feel better for that...I'll shut up now
I expect drivers who do that are searching for a street name so they don't notice the pedestrian. There are so many things to look out for when driving that I think some people just don't see everything. Not talking about me of course!
