How can anything be annoying after today. I am extremely happy and feeling just a little frisky. What ever happened to the uniforms thread? 🤓

Surely it's simply "I'll have..."

Personally I've never understood why it has to be a question. It's down to the person serving you to let you know whether you can't have what you've asked for.

All this stuff has more to do with an irrational fear of 'Americanisms' than anything else. Not sure why. Perhaps 'kids' saying 'can I have' in 1974 were being berated similarly.
Yes you are asking if a task is possible. Saying ‘can I have’ with the use of the word ‘can’ is a polite question which could be potentially be turn down. Where as ‘get’ to me sounds more like a demand, or to me sounds like you should be getting it yourself. Yes and it is an Americanism, something Im saying I have no shame of disliking who English people speak. As for ‘May I have’ yes maybe Im irritating a more grumpy bastard than me somewhere when I say ‘can I have’.

I imagine alot of you say it because it is a very popular way of asking for something now. I actually notice when someone says ‘can I have’, like the odd individual not looking on their phone on a train among the people endlessle scrolling meaningless content, I admire them.

On the plus side it's been a while since I've heard anyone use the term 'amazeballs'. Feel a little queasy just typing that word.

Have to agree, had to amend car insurance last week. "Amazing" was used when I confirmed my name, gave my password, gave the reg number, and gave details of additional driver.

Call centres must be bloomin boring if they can speak to an old git like me and find it amazing.

Also E on. Each year they send me a letter with a massive price hike, because surprise i use more gas and electicity in winter so i am currently in debt. I of course applied logic and said yes but in a couple of months when it warms up we will use less and i will be in credit again. Still they want to increase it by £60 a montj. My fault i find out i am on the standard rate , so i ask to go on a cheap fixed rate. Well you cant until you agree to increase to the higher monthly rate. Again use my logic, if i am on a chaeper rate and pay the same amount as i am paying now a month it will pay the debt off.
No you have to pay the higher rate a month. I give up and hsve told them they can stick it. Will be on u switch on monday.
