    Ha ha ! My Sparky was saying this very thing to me yesterday !
    'He turned round and said - so I turned round and said ............' Drives us barmy !
    We never do 'turn round and said' I've got vertigo anyway, so wouldn't do me any good :p

    Some years ago I was learning to play guitar so that I could be in my church's 'praise and worship' band for evening services. The vicar was teaching me himself, as he played lead guitar. During one of the first weeks while I was practicing at home alone one of my guitar strings broke, so I rang to ask my vicar what to do. He was out visiting parishioners so his secretary had to take a message. What I said without thinking was " Please tell the vicar my G-string is broken." I never lived that one down!

    The phone rings... the message say's "Please leave a message.".. and the nut case on the other end says" Hello...Hello... Hello "...
    As for wording such as .".may I axed yous a question"....... can you can Ebonics? I have family members who do this- drives me nuts. Makes them sound- well stupid.
    Or how about this one... your changing a flat tire. Your neighbor walks up and asks"- got a flat tire?" Heeelllooo...no I am changing its diaper ......here's your sign! You have ever heard Bill Engal the comedian , you will get the - Here's your sign .

    The one about the flat tire reminds me of the paperbacks MAD magazine had decades ago- "Snappy answers to stupid questions." :p
