    And AND AND! DID ANYONE HEAR THE M&S mother’s day ad???? “MOM”? mOm?? UNBELIEVABLE!!

    I did and just assumed she was from the West Midlands 😉

    ‘On Point’ is the one that annoys me.

    As an American I feel as though I’m playing dee-fense here. Not your damned defence. Defence is what keeps de cattle in de corral.

    What’s with using the letter “y” when “i” is indicated?

    Why do they call whatever it is that you speak “English?” We speak it in a way that anyone can understand it.

    All righty then, good to go.

    BTW, “heads up” is a baseball term dating back a century or more. Means look up, a baseball is coming down somewhere very soon, i.e. be alert. “Step up to the plate,” obviously a baseball term, is a euphemism for accepting a challenge that has consequences for others.
