Lazy Language- Grrrr!
Whilst on the PC a few days ago, I had the telly wittering away in the background, on channel 4.
The announcer came on: "Coming up next on 4, it's Deal, then at five it's Come Dine." All said in a smarmy, M&S advert-style manner.
For some reason, my blood boiled instantly. Why does everything have to be abbreviated these days? Dunno why this irked me so much, but it did!
What next? The news being announced simply as 'The'?
