I tend to think that is such stuff triggers you youre suffering form a deeper unhappiness or injury that for whatever reason you cant admit to yourself. And rather than take that issue on, youre cunting out some poor barista who hasnt been thoroughly beaten down by life yet.

If I'm a customer in a restaurant, and I ask my experienced server for ketchup for my French Fries, I will politely say 'thank you' when they drop it off on the table. 'You're welcome' is always an appropriate response. But let's take a look at the alternate responses, and see if they make sense...

'No problem' - I wouldn't think asking for the ketchup for my French Fries is setting the bar high, or would ever pose a problem for my server. Why inform me it was 'no problem' for you ? Was it a problem for my server earlier in the day, and they were able to solve that problem ?

'No worries' - for whom, exactly ? I certainly had no worries that a server could fulfill my request for ketchup. I was quite confident they could, as it's part of the job. So that leaves just one other person - was the server worried they couldn't fulfill the request ? If the server was, then maybe this isn't their line of work.

when I choose to honor the labor of a servant-type with a Thank You, I expect a full throated and jovial, yet humble "My Pleasure" in return. I need to believe it. To virtually feel the pleasure running through the server's veins. Although "You're Welcome" is acceptable as well, I still consider it the perfunctory response of a poorly bred commoner who is oblivious of the great honor i do when I allow them to grind pepper on my shrimp. "No Problem", however, is an inexcusable outrage, practically demanding an ugly scene, apologies from the maitre'd and coupons for a free salad next time i dine at Olive Garden.

"My Pleasure" would be refreshing. I am also tired of the trend of saying "no problem" or "no worries." I don't want to be considered a problem, nor do I want to think about your worries when I'm dining at a restaurant that is in the business of making its customers feel welcome. It's not a matter of being a prancing prisspot. The appropriate response to "Thank you" is "you're welcome." Notice the difference in the perception. I'm no longer a problem or a worry, now I am welcome.

I like when your server assures you 'no problem' with everything you order...and then you receive your order and there are problems.

For example:

Chirpy young female server asks, "How would you like your steak cooked ?"

Me: "May I have that cooked medium rare. I don't like it over-done. ?"

Her : "No problem. Would you like mashed, baked potato or fries ?"

Me: "I'll have the mashed."

Her: "No problem. Would you like carrots or beets for your vegetable?"

Me: "I'll do the carrots."

Her: "No problem. I'll put this in right away."

Twenty minutes later and the food arrives. The steak is burnt, the side is fries and the vegetable is beets.

She approaches the table and asks with a big smile, 'Everything taste ok ?'

I pleasantly respond, 'Remember when I placed my order and after every request I made you assured me there was 'no problem' ? Well apparently, the whole order somehow became a problem...'

Then her eyes widen and her jaw clenches. She reads her notes on what I ordered, picks up the plate and says , "No worries. I'll take care of this. " (No apology to me - just an assurance of 'no worries'.)

Dutchie, as someone who once did an intensive Dutch course (with the much-praised "nonnen in Vught"), I can tell you that the word "er" and its multiple and extremely versatile uses confused the hell out of me and my fellow students. That's a tough little fucker to nail down! (My mum--not "mom", duly noted--is Dutch but unfortunately could not be bothered to raise me and my siblings bilingually, believing that the language would be of no use to us anyway. For shame!).

oh, good one R287, I forgot about that one!

This can be used as for "it" and "there", but also as a placeholder, a subject, a location, and a provisional subject. I cannot imagine how difficult and confusing this must be for a non-native speaker.

Someone once told me one can compare "er" to the French "en".

I want to visit New Zealand, someday. And yes, your mother chose wisely.

It was startling way back when Gertrude Stein wrote it about Oakland, but these days it's way overused (a cliché of travel writing). As well as misunderstood:

[quote]Stein's most famous line is always used to say something which she never intended. “There's no there there” meant no insult to the old hometown. It was simply an expression of painful nostalgia. Stein lived in Oakland from age six to 17—crucial years in a child's life.

[quote]Ever since Gertrude Stein wrote of Oakland, "there is no there there," people have used this quote to condemn the city. But taking a closer look at the quote and the context in which it was written, we can see it is an expression of "painful nostalgia" and not of disdain or insult to Oakland. Let's take a closer look at this famous quote and how it relates to the artists interviewed in Oakland in Popular Memory putting a new "there" in Oakland.

[quote]The hole left by the Sussexes has just been mercilessly exposed

Charged adjectives in headlines (and thread titles) like the one above, which was both a Datalounge thread title and the title of an article from 'The Telegraph' newspaper. The use of 'mercilessly' contributes nothing except as a good clue to keep moving, there's nothing but clickbait and/or hyperbole here. And from the fucking Telegraph.

Titles such as 'Uvalde Guardian of Massacre Victim Gets Arrested for Reading Coward Cop TO FILTH!' are the worst sort. If the condemnation were in fact some sort of earth-shatteringly devastating 'take down,' it could certainly be appropriate (if tired and tacky) as a DL sensational thread title. And yet, these eviscerations are almost never more than shrill and dimwitted scoldings of a low order. While theoretically they may have the occasional place at DL, the rhetoric of RuPaul's Drag Race is embarrassing for legitimate news media.

Appending the word "event" to just about everything. Weather forecasters used to talk about a chance of snow. Now we have a "snow event." We no longer have rain. We have rain events. And it's not limited to weather. Earlier today, I read about next month's "solar eclipse event."
