Two Annoyances

    Number 1

This might seem trivial but it’s the little things that will grind us down. When I shop in Tesco and pay at the self-service till I am pretty sure the lovely lady says:

Clubcard excepted.

It’s probably just her accent but I don’t like it. She should, of course, be saying:

Clubcard accepted.

That would make me happier.

    Number 2

When broadband supplying companies are advertising perhaps they could actually state a speed rather than just a value. They seem to say:

Speeds of up to 8 megabits

Now, you know I’m this fussy! 8 megabits is not a speed. You have to have a compound measure for speed because it’s a rate. They should be saying:

Speeds of up to 8 megabits per second

If both these things happened I would be a happy man!
