    We were picking out tiles for our new house and a young couple were standing near us and I over heard the girl say to her partner "I love all the tiles black and white because it looks so rich!"

    I had to walk away I was laughing so hard.

    Sorry everyone out there that doesn't have black and white bathrooms, but your colour choice makes you look poor

    "Its strangulated me" doesn't make sense as a sentence. Well that's how I read it...

    I used to think people who had a dunny in their bathroom was rich. Lol. Nevermind their colourscheme.

    It has strangulated me... Perfect sense.

    I'm not being obtuse, I really don't get it!

    Lambjam hopefully waiting's DH said "it's strangulated me". Take out the apostrophe - "it is strangulated me". That doesn't make sense to me! Maybe he should have said "it's strangling me" perhaps. Now I'm not sure either after thinking about it!!!

    "It's" can stand for "it has" as well as "it is".

    Eg "It's been a lovely day"

    I think it kind of goes
    Action word (current tense): Strangle, strangling.
    Descriptive word (Past tense): Strangled.

    So it'd be like "I'm going to strangle you!"
    Then it would be "Hah! I strangled you!"

    Whereas things ending with te then just get the "d" added on the end.
    So
    "I'm going to congratulate you!"
    Then "I congratulated you!"

    Since there's no "te" at the end of the word "strangle" then the "t" gets added in, requiring another "ed" to be added, which doesn't work?

    This makes SO much more sense in French *Brain explodes* Hope it made sense though.

    Ah, so HW thought the word itself was incorrect? I'm pretty sure strangle/d and strangulate/d are interchangeable.
