    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Update - she wore a full length Christmas jumper dress that made her look like a full-sized Christmas tree. I wore normal work clothes. She didn't make any comment on my clothes and I made no comment on hers.
     
  3. Hope you got her a Secret Santa:

  5. Hi Everyone,


    Unfortunately the company we ordered our office Brunch through has cancelled our booking this afternoon due to them closing a day earlier than planned until the New Year ☹


    Due to this, they have offered to make it up to us in the New Year so we’ll reschedule and have a ‘Welcome Back Brunch’!


    Sorry for this, but it was out of our control.


    Thanks,


    UK Social Committee

    No he doesn't. But he's not a native English speaker, so I think, at least in that respect, he's doing a pretty great job.

    I'd like it better if they knew the difference between a plural and a possessive.

    equationgirl Do you believe you can walk on water?

    None, sadly. But don't think it wasn't considered for a number of special people.

    No, you misunderstand - Mr Panini is the head nurse, known for his love of crumpets, buns and small rodents.

  20. Panini is plural in itself, no need for an s at the end, even more no need for ‘s. At the cafe at my health club the menu has panini’s on offer, the club is part of Charterhouse School.

    Puddy_Tat meh

    e-mail and ask what constitutes a 'small rodent' and whether doing rat on a stick is acceptable...

    Panini is singular in English, unless you're going to start asking for cappuccino using the plural form if you order more than one. Better just to accept we change words when they come into English.

    You've either got to use the correct singular and plurals of all import words, or none of them. You can't pick and choose.

    I can choose whatever pointless, uphill battles ultimately doomed to failure I like, thankyouverymuch. Rage against the dying of the panino!
