I remember those from my time working in a County Court. Sets of nine documents had to be bonked.
We refer to ours as “Human Remains” (They used to be PersonHell)
The same as most doctors being called Doctor, even if they don’t have a Doctorate. As I regularly say to my GP pal, “if you were a plumber, would you call yourself “Plumber Jones"
That's different for Doctors, as they're physicians. And in that sense the word has a dual meaning.
yeah, so my dentist should really refer to herself as “Dentist Patel”, not “Doctor Patel”,
I did once do some work with a company who’s employees had rather grandiose titles, including “Director of User Happiness” and “Chief Futurologist”.
You won’t be surprised to learn that the company was Google.
Swede - it's a turnip.
Only if her name is actually Patel.
Only it's not.
I worked for 35 years as a butcher ………….. I used to tell folk was a bovine surgeon if asked
And where did bap come from? Everyone knows it’s a barm.
Safety cameras. They dont photograph peop,e driving safely.
They're speed cameras. Speeding is bad, and we should be apologetic or pander to the opinion of offenders. Call them what they are.
I trust that the first was a happy soul.
And that the second didn't get the sack but didn't see it coming.
(second thought from my publishing days - the big head honcho took pleasure on a visit from telling us that the company's star astrologer didn't see his contract termination coming)
And how about the "Police Force" attempts to rebrand themselves as the "Police Service". At the risk of sounding political and being forever exiled to the NACA part of the forum, I read this as them trying to wriggle out of the responsibility of "enforcing the law" to "servicing the diktats of their political masters".
Coronation Street. What a crock that name is. Half the stories take place in Rosamund Street.
Separate names with a comma.
