A nice debate on the phone yesterday,and a trip to Santiago today to chat in person.

I particularly enjoyed the chap telling me that banks weren't in the business of giving money away.

I asked him if there was a school where they taught upcoming thieves in suits. I also said that I felt like I was a victim of an assault and was being treated by a copper who then proceeded to steal my phone.

Them just making sure they squeeze out their final pint of blood, I suppose.

I wonder whether it is just a Chilean thing or is universal. I did point out that banking staff seem to be living on a completely different plane of existence to the rest of people. I said that I knew that it was his job to defend his bank's policies to clients, but whereas while most regular people would see their charges and costs as excessive or abusive, they feel, supported by the law, that all is normal. I asked him, that considering we are in a pandemic and that I am officially drawing unemployment benefit, if he thought that surprising someone with a previously unnotified request for almost 2 grand to proceed, is something that most regular clients can easily take with a pinch of salt. I got a blank stare on that one.

The word I am looking for is - intransigent.

I even tried the old lawyers or superintendant of banks line, but he said it was my choice, but I would just accrue more charges over time and have lawyers fees on top.
I sometimes feel that people are laughing at me as they dip their hands into my pocket.

I will probably get about a grand of that back. I seemingly have to pay a guarantee of the next three mortgage dividends should the sale be overly delayed. Notwithstanding that the paers were signed in the notaria and the bank dragged their feet for a month.

The portion that pays off the bank is including in the cheque left at the notaria, so these three future dividends are some sort of double accounting.

Is this the same in the UK or USA?
Same, I was told we keep your money in a safe place....

Busybodies chasing you up all day asking if you saw the email about the other email.

I love this quote from Donald Knuth:

“Email is a wonderful thing for people whose role in life is to be on top of things. But not for me; my role is to be on the bottom of things.”

Originally agenda was the plural of agendum, meaning ‘a thing to be done’. However, it became applied to a list of things to be done, and in this, the most usual modern sense, it has become firmly singular, with the plural agendas.

It s a single source, but it is powered by Oxford.
I reckon you're right: the loan from Latin is a different class of word from the one it's used as in English (plural noun vs. singular noun); whilst we often use the foreign plural for imported nouns (e.g. Greek nouns in -ma making plurals in -ata), that's a nonsense when the word has been reclassified like this. An agenda consists of "agenda items", so an item on the agenda is not an "agendum" (although I have seen that usage); the reason is that a number of items would then be "agenda" the plural, but that word is already in use to denote the list of items; an agenda is not the same thing as a miscellaneous list of agenda items.

"Data" is another example. Plural noun (from a verbal past participle) in Latin, mass noun in English. A piece or item of data is not normally a "datum" these days, although it was quite recently. I use this word a lot There is a word "datum" but that means something else: a reference value or base from which measurements are made. For example, the Greenwich meridian is a "datum" because it is from there that all other longitudes are measured. The plural of this as "datums" (not "data") by the same logic.

Yep. Thatís something that annoys me: language quibblers. If you can understand it then itís fine. The English language started to be standardised long after it was first spoken and written.

Any toe related injury. Today's was a bottle of shampoo landing on my foot from its perch in the shower.

Any pain inflicted upon a toe or toes is magnified by at least, I would say, 2 million percent

Gout can be pretty annoying and painful enough to stop you sleeping despite prescription-strength painkillers. I had heard that the toothache and earache were so painful because "the teeth / ears are close to the brain". Sounds like boll^H^H^H^H an old wives' tale to me. They do also say that gallstones and kidney stones caught in the pipes are the worst pain you can get - thankfully I've never found out the hard way.

That is true for knees and elbows, too.

And eye sockets, hamstrings. and whatever utter nonsense the likes of Wickham and The Soldier are suffering from. Nice job when you can get it. Imagine in our own fields being absent for illness or injury so long / the firm would have you out in three months, some would let you go in a week. Football clubs send them on holiday or to nightclubs.

This, with ******* huge clangers on.

Only the other day I looked down at my bare feet, the right one sufficiently close to a particularly bastard chair leg that has assaulted me on more than one occasion that I thought best pop yer shoes on matey. And there comfortingly close to my left foot were my toe saving flip flops (sturdy leather affairs). At this point the phone beeped as it received a message, absentmindedly I read the message. This seemingly minor taking of the eye off the ball was all that bastard toe assaulting chair leg needed to maneuver its way into position and ambush my unsuspecting pinkies on their way to the safety of the adjacent foot ware.
Howls of pain and swearing ensued.

A bottle of roku gin fell on my foot a week or two ago. Not from a particularly great height (about waist level), but Christ that smart. Nice bruising though.

A few years back I hurt my lower back, and then got sciatica. Never had pain before or after like that. It was so bad I almost felt like throwing up. Then the co-codamol kicked in and it eased up.
