You're alright Steve.....it didn't cross my mind.......emoticons don't always convey what I mean......I thought it was funny
Actually that is another meaningless phrase......."You're alright..." I could have said I didn't think you were aiming your remarks at me in particular but that's a lot of typing.
Runnybeak............yes, the "How do you feel ?" is enough to make a normal person scream "How do you think I feel ******** ?"
One more contribution from me..........The endless warnings which newsreaders give out at the beginning of a report on a disaster, war zone, etc. "Some viewers may be upset by this/that or the other in this report ". Do they expect us to switch off for 5 minutes or what ? Perhaps if they showed some of the footage which they often claim is "too distressful to broadcast", some of us may sit up and take more notice of what is happening around us......politicians and world leaders in particular.
Mmm.......that WAS a bit of a rant wasn't it ? But....there you go....it does annoy me. As does "There you go " but I'm guilty of that one I'm afraid
