Gritty bits driving me mental

D'ya know what, I'm a bit late with this tonight, I've been to Tesco for the late shop, and d'ya know what, I got quite a lot of yellow stickers. Big reductions on brussel sprouts, spinach, layered cheese salad, prepared carrots and peas, noodles, and muffins. And d'ya know what, there was six packs of yogurts reduced to half price, just because the pots had separated from each other. They were bagged up and marked down with a yellow sticker. Well I'm going to separate them anyway, before I eat them, so d'ya know what, I don't mind that someone else has separated them. Done me a favour they have.
D'ya know what, I have decided I don't like popcorn. D'ya know why, it's because you chew on it for ages, and you can never get rid of the gritty bits. D'ya know what, I ended up stepping outside, and spitting them all over the garden, I was so fed up of chewing. D'ya know what, there's no way I can swallow all those hard bits, I mean, what happens to them when they go down my gullet and into my stomach, how can my gastric juices possibly break that down, surely it's going to come out the other end in much the same state as it went in, so what's the point. D'ya know what, I'm definately not going to be poppin any more. My poor digestive system can't cope with me swallowing a lot of grit.
D'ya know what, I split up my babies today, here they are all in their own pots. Talk to them nicely for me, and they will hopefully turn into big yellow flowers. Thank you for all the tips on growing them. I'll keep you posted on their progress, or demise if they should keel over and die.
D'ya know what, everyone is starting sentences with d'ya know what. They keep doing it on Coronation Street, and d'ya know what, it's cropping up all over the place. They don't say 'do you know what', oh no, they say d'ya know what.  What a sloppy way of talking, and what is the point of it. The person doing the listening is going to know what, by the time the one speaking has finished, so why start with d'ya know what? D'ya know what, I will scream if I hear d'ya know what, one more time. You have a listen to people talking, see how many times you hear it. D'ya know what, it will drive you mental after a while.

D'ya know what, I had another email today from a female asking if she could write a guest post. The subjects she offered were, Bailiffs what powers do they have, Is bankruptsy for you, and Administration orders, whatever that is. She said she would love to contribute to my blog. What a damn cheek, is she insinuating that I am not capable of writing my own posts. D'ya know what, if the time comes when my head is completely empty of any ideas, if my brain siezes up completely, and my fingers can't find the right letters on the keyboard, then that is the time to pack up. Untill then, you're stuck with me I'm afraid.
D'ya know what, I'm going to bed.
Toodle pip.

  3. D'ya know what, you made me smile.
    I have a sister -in-law who says this all of the time & it grates on me!

  4. I think I would get tired of that phrase too. I don't like when folks continually say "ya know", "like" or the phrase "if you will"...that one always makes me feel like saying "what if I won't"!

  5. D'ya know what, basiclly, you know, like, at the end of the day, like, basiclly, and so on, and yes it does grate, as a nation I believe we are getter thicker and thicker, to sound or be educated in any way is 'elitist'. I no longer watch 'the telly' but even Radio 4 is guilty of huge grammatical errors these days,and as for 'I am sat here', who sat you there, it is I am sitting, sat is the past tense, sitting is the present!!! I'll shut up now.

    1. D'ya know what, I am guilty of grammatical errors now and again, and I do sometimes write how I speak, but I don't start every chuffin sentence with d'ya know what, apart from this post of course, ha ha.

  6. I have a teenager so everything is " whatever" or "awesome"! Drives me nuts!

  7. This did give me a morning chuckle. Our recently arrived co-worker has a habbit of getting halfway through a sentence, then obviously not having enough brain power to finish properly says "fingy" (no not even "thingy"). Well, hubby and I just fill in the gaps!!!! Glad you got some fresh bargains - and the fact that you can still buy sprouts at the end of May!!

  8. Hi Ilona, Shirley here...
    made me chuckle, I can't imagine the day when you do not come up with original ideas for your blog Ilona. I love them, I am hanging on until I am 65 - 2 more years then - until I retire and I love to log on to your blog at lunchtime at work & dream about my own "liberation"! I am constantly amazed at the fact you come up with subjects/ideas to blog about, a real skill, and one that I amdmire - keep it up please!!

  9. D'ya know what ARRRRRRRRRRGH lol. I was screaming before I began the second paragraph. I enjoyed reading that and I too hate it when people can not speak the Queens English :). We have a friend that is always saying an its proper big or its proper real. The other day it was "an it was proper lightening" ? is there two kinds of lightening ? I feel like saying for goodness sake drop the proper lol. Thank you for your blogs always brightens up my day. Yours is always the first one I go to in the morning.

  10. I hate sloppy talking!! It's just sheer laziness. I do like The Voice on BBC, but listening to Jessie J talk does drive me up the wall. She doesn't seem to be able to pronounce the letter T and every sentence seems to be spoken as a question.

    My pet hate phrase on tv is "I'm sorry for your loss" Can't script writers come up with something more original? It seems to be featuring on every crime/detective series broadcast these days! Double Grrrr!

  11. D'ya know what? I enjoyed this post so much.
    Sorry you did not enjoy the pop corn...maybe try one of the cheaper packaged microwave versions. They puff up big light and airy with hardly any kernel left.

  12. Another blog that made me smile, and I'm feeling grumpy today too, so well done for cheering me up! Have you noticed politicians now start every sentence with "Listen", I want to say NO! I'm NOT!

  13. Here in the US I hear people say d'ya know what all the time. Also, my pet peeve - "Can I ask you a question?" Well, then they proceed to ask me the question without getting my permission! All the time on tv talk shows, they say this over and over again. What is the purpose of that? So, you know, like, no! You can't ask me a question if you're going to start with "can I ask you a question?" Ugh
    That's all I have to say about that.

  14. D'ya kno' wot?
    'basically we need to touch base with the client so we can obviously get tonights work boxed off' Thanks agency consultant, normal English is hard enough to understand when they phone up 2hours into my sleep after doing a night shift. Whatever happened to the plain English campaign?

  15. I said, Love the blog, Ilona! I hear people telling me "I said" before every sentence all the time. My husband does it a lot and when he starts it right away I ask "What did you say?" That's the other thing he says after everything I tell him because he's not listening!

  16. D'ya know what? One of my hates is when people say "I'm gonna do ..... innit!" ????????? I would swear at this point if it wasn't a blog. I'm a right nit picker really, and it annoys me listening to things where people say "I say" after a statement, when they've already just said it! That's more in older things, as I think it was quite a common expression. Oh, and when they say "like" after sentences. My son told me I should say "Like what?" But I never had the guts to do it. Another thing is on the TV they say "and you can get it FOR FREE!" when it's either FREE or FOR NOTHING. ****!!!!!!!********@@@@@.I would have thought that people who are in marketing and on the TV have had a basic grounding in English grammar. I don't mean you should go around saying ONE MUST, like Royalty but hells bells, how the ******** hell have these people got on TV?

    I don't like the gritty bits in popcorn either! You did well with your food hoard.

    1. Oh Campfire, I so agree with the For Free, it is either Free or For Nothing, I just scream at the radio, and also 'anytime soon' 'I am stood here' and don't get me on 'was you', or 'could of', I could go on but my blood pressure will rise.

  17. Thanks for another very amusing post. The person who wants to guest blog seems to be thinking she needs to give a certain message. Otherwise why can't she get her own blog.

  18. Growing up we had a neighbor that every time one of her kids said "You know what?" She answered, "No. Does What know you?"
