QOTD

You can train an Englishman for 6 months to say "have a nice day" – it will still come out sounding like "f*** off".

    The same thing applies to the correct use of the horn in motoring. The vast majority of motorists use their horn to say “What the hell are you doing you idiot, get out of my effing way” when the correct usage says “excuse me, I am approaching and was concerned that you may not have seen me.” Just about everyone hears the former, so if you are using your horn to express the latter then you are wasting your time.

    At least it’ll be a polite and well-meant “f*k off”, unlike an American waitress saying the same where it’s just plain boredom and disinterest in the world dripping from every vocal.

    Cats, To paraphrase the old blonde joke – and don’t give them a lunch hour, or you’ll have to retrain them afterwards, as they’ll have forgotten everything?

    @Stonyground, I think the device you are talking about is the ‘Egyptian Brake Pedal.’
