Episode 464. Wacky Word Wednesday #15 — August 19, 2015

Episode 464. Wacky Word Wednesday #15

Wednesday is here which means it is time to pay tribute to, and celebrate another weird, wacky or wonderful word. Today I have chosen one that, although still used frequently, has a light and fluffy texture to it, that always brings a smile to my face.

Kerfuffle. This word is causing a commotion or creating chaos. It is getting mixed up in the middle of a melee or fighting your way out of a fracas.

Causing a rumpus, starting a scrimmage, or even bickering and brawling, this word likes to get in the thick of the action. It is a free-for-all fight or feud that anyone is welcome to take part in.

This word is the result of a few drinks on a Saturday night in my local town centre!

Episode 170: Politeness Pays…. — February 19, 2015

Episode 170: Politeness Pays….

I have written a couple of posts about manners, and how I hate it when people are rude, arrogant or just plain obnoxious. We are very quick to judge people on their behaviour, and here are some examples of how first impressions matter…

A man getting off the Tube politely let another male passenger go before him. The other man started pushing and shoving despite being told by the first man that he was not trying to block his way. Anyway, after a bit of argy-bargy, it was suggested that the first man might like to ‘go f**k himself.’

Later that evening, the first man was conducting some job interviews. Guess who turned up?! Unfortunately, he didn’t meet the requirements and was unsuccessful in getting the job. They did have a laugh about their earlier scuffle though apparently!

The  second story involves a little girl of five years old. She was in a shop with her granddad after school, looking at toys. They often visited this shop and the little girl would spell out the names of the toys she wanted. This was educational for the little girl and enjoyable for them both.

On one of their visits, as the little girl was spelling out one of the toys she wanted, a woman approached them and gave the granddad an envelope. She then disappeared after remarking how pleasant and polite the little girl was. In the envelope was a voucher for £10. The little girl was thrilled as she had enough money to buy one of the toys on her wishlist.

The idiot on the Tube might have wished that he had remembered his manners!
