    The wife and I have been watching the sitcom "Gavin & Stacey" and I will admit a soft spot for some Welsh slang. "Tidy," for example. It's sort of like "cool."
    For example
    - Did you get your vaccine yet?
    - Yes
    - Tidy!

    I usually sign off with Cheers.
    It’s 1000x better than alternatives; Yours, Yours Truly, Sincerely, Love, etc.

    The IRS is way way behind--pandemic, lack of staffing, having to issue multiple stimulus checks. That's why they delayed filing until May. All you can do is wait. And if you're expecting a refund check by US Mail--you're doubly fucked.

    I'm using British slang by using "Cheers"? Now I'm chuffed.

    I watch this guy on youtube, very good simple cook, but he uses the term "moreish" a bit more than I'd like.

    "Freedom" doesn't have an "s" at the end. (I'll cut FDR some slack, but just once).
    "Pants" does.
    "Sports" does.

    (People who talk about their freedoms don't understand what freedom is because they've always had it and take it for granted.)

    I like, and use, the Scottish "are you fit?" or "are you fit, like?" for "are you ready?"
    Also, they call groceries, or shopping "messages"...
    "I'm away to the store to pick up my messages"

    While it’s an easy one to misuse, it isn’t true that it’s incorrect to refer to multiple instances of specific freedoms as ... freedoms. You can indeed count off different types and examples and use the s to indicate a plural.

    Overly rigid, prescriptive, and ultimately incorrect grammar “rules” annoy me.

    And "math" should have one, even though nobody over here puts one on.

    Where were you ~ 30 years ago when I used freedoms in scrabble and it was determined it was not a word? It was a tight game and it cost me big time. Yes, I still remember it 30 years later.

    My fucking cable company annoys me.....We have our home alarm system through them. One of the motion detectors shit the bed. I literally spent two fucking hours last night on a video "chat" trying to install the new one they sent me......Could not actually speak to a human being, and they refused to send anyone out to do the job. I never knew I was a contract employee for fucking Xfinity ( formerly Comcast).....Assholes. Reminded me of this:

    What we have here is an intelligence failure. You may be familiar with staring directly at that when shaving. .

    Annoying when a window breaks for no good reason (all we can figure is that recent weed-whacking flung a small rock into it, unnoticed).

    Do you have kids? I broke a window with a tennis ball as a kid that ended up looking just like that, but there were no marks left from the impact(s) that caused the window to break.

    I feel your pain, I just got my refund from my 2018 taxes about two months ago. They questioned if I was me and wouldn't release the check until confirmed. Their stupid confirmation process took months of me sending them shit, filling out shit, responding to shit. I finally gave up and passed it off to my accountant, it took her another 3 months of dealing with them on the daily before they finally sent me a check.

    Annoying.

    The mf’ing Geico motorcycle commercial! My brain apparently likes the damn song as I keep waking up at 3am singing it.

    Apologies if your brain malfunctions like mine and you start singing it.

    Usage-wise in the US I'll agree but semantically the "s" is more correct. You don't have complete freedom. You have the freedom to do a number of things, and those are your freedoms. You have freedoms, you don't have freedom.

    Calling bullshit, Ice. You have the freedom to do multiple things. You don't possess freedoms because of many things you are free to do.

    You don't have the freedoms to choose what bathroom to shit in, even though you may have 7.

    Anyway, freebird.
