So, I'm listening to NPR this morning, and as always, the announcer says "Today, expect a high of 80 degrees." I worked in radio as a DJ for 12 years. One of the cardinal sins back then was to state "Degrees". I mean, hell, OF COURSE it is degrees. What else would it be? Kelvins? Ohms? Yards? So, with this very lighthearted thread, let us all blow off a little frustration, perhaps have a few laughs, and share some of the things that make us itch in impossible to scratch locations. One of my all time pet peeves. Me to young waitress/cashier/etc - "Thank you!" reply from young waitress/cashier/etc - "No problem." When did this become the standard reply? What happened to "You're welcome." The implication was "Hey, I was busy, you interrupted me, but it's "no problem". I'm 41 years old, going on 100. Anything goes, but please, no political or other things the forum rules do not allow.
