      The proper name is the Glove Compartment. It's where a Driver's gloves were stored when the car was parked, so that he could put them on when starting up the car.

      A glove box is a device where Hazardous Materials can be handled.

          I don't mind Mall too much but not, under any circumstances, when it is pronounced to rhyme with Ball.

          Restroom, Bathroom or Cloakroom when they mean Toilet.

          I even overheard a Student, the other day, say that he was "perspirating" FFS, although it could have been worse, he might have been perspirationing, I suppose.

          I hate it when someone says something like "the brexit referendum result speaks to a wider phenomenon".

            Something else that irked me this morning was a short piece on RTE Radio 1 promoting a programme about the citizen's assembly in which it referred to Mary Laffoy as The Honourable Ms Justice Mary Laffoy or some bullsh*t like that. She's Judge Laffoy, that should do her.

              It's the spellings, color, flavor, nite etc. that annoy me
