Annoying expressions part 1.
'Darling, what time will I meet you in town?'
'Around three, four.'
'What time did he call?'
'About seven, eight.'
'What time is the party?'
'It starts nine, half nine.'
Seriously, fuck of with your five sixs and your nine nine thirties. There was a woman on the radio yesterday that said, 'Ten, Twenty thousand people could be affected by the HSC's decision' and I was standing there in the kitchen yelling at the radio, 'TEN TWENTY? IS THAT A NEW FUCKING NUMBER?"
If asked what age I am I don't say '34 35.'
Or if somebody asked what car I drive I don't say Ford Mondeo Ka. That would be stupid. So what is it with numbers? If you don't know the exact time just say 'I think it was around 4' or 'between 3 and 4.' Don't just pop it on there like a bloody big strangley placed digit!
It's really not that difficult now is it.
Adding number to existing perfectly good numbers thus rendering them annoying...
I"M AGAINST IT!
