11. I have to wonder


are you threatened by rowing teams shouting 'STROKE, STROKE, STROKE,' or think that someone is trying to express even-bias when they shout 'FOUR!' at a driving range or puttputt...
When someone 'drives the ball' does that mean they're giving the ball a lift to the stadium, or crushing it under heel to force it to work harder? you never can tell.....
what about someone that's 'A knock out'...yes, yes, it's terribly misogynist to state that someone could look good enough to make one lose consciousness, but obviously THIS one is a bullying threat against the person in question...
Maybe it's bias against forests for people to field questions and terrible to poll someone, afterall, what did they do to be driven up there in the first place?

I can't imagine how you reacted when you saw Mrs.C on happy days tell someone to 'SIT ON IT' my GODS, my pearls, oh no...
