I took my kids out for tea tonight. The menu stated: Kid's meal's include a soft drink and a scope of ice cream.
1. Kid's meal's (argh!)
2. I wonder what a "scope" of ice cream tastes like?

I thought it meant barista is pronounced incorrectly as barrister.
I tested the 'percolate' theory on dh. I say percolate and assumed everyone did, so I tricked dh into saying it. He said perculate!

I can't stand it when I get a card from someone and they list all their family members but don't place commas between the names.
Eg. Love Helen Joe Emily Hamish & Luke

A barista IS a coffee maker, so we don't get what you're trying to say unless it's a typo.

Initially this was followed in Australia (some cities still do) but standards have fallen by the wayside to the extent where you can walk into the cafe down the road, pour yourself a coffee and you can call yourself a barista. That's what I meant when I said the term was used incorrectly. A case of culture affecting grammar if you will.
I also mentioned people get mixed up between barista and barrister but that was a separate observation.
Thanks OP for an hilarious thread.
