I used to like their spicy bean burgersThe vegan options in BK are miles better than any of the other places, so unfortunately I do have to attend their, yes, RATHER TATTY AND WORN OUT venues more often.
My flatmate had this habit a few years ago. Something like:I have no issue with the word 'awesome' itself - when used in the sense of something inspiring awe, like the view of a mountain at sunset, or time travel or something. It's the use of it for the most mundane things as a synonym for 'quite good' which pisses me off.
My flatmate had this habit a few years ago. Something like:
“Fancy a takeaway tonight?”
That’s thankfully died down and now her repeated phrase is “that doesn’t surprise me” as a reaction to absolutely everything. It could be something totally unpredictable like an alien invasion, but met with “doesn’t surprise me”. Is it some kind of subtle proclamation of intelligence or nonchalance?
Absolutely. Firstly who the hell cares about random 18 year olds annually opening envelopes live on TV, especially when they cherry-pick the A* students for obvious reasons?The results days being discussed all day (GCSEs, BTECs, T-Levels, A-Levels) - in particular them showing the students with mostly A*s, distinctions, or certain personalities just showing off getting their results on TV. Just take the envelope home and celebrate quietly if it's good...
I opened my SATs at school, but took them home for GCSEs and, A-Levels - mine were teacher-assessed, like the ones who got their results today. Exceptional at exams ≠ student who is actually intelligent.
