    Mis-quotes

    My wife is famous for making mis-quotes, todays effort complaining about the kids never doing stuff around the house was

    "Everyday is like Ground Force Day".

    I thought great, must mean we're getting our garden done for free!!

    Maybe she meant that she wanted Charlie Dimmock and Alan Titchmarsh to come round and do the housework because no one else will help.

    In a cycling context, David Millar kept calling the efforts of some of the protagonists in the Dauphin imperial. No, they may be imperious but they 'aint kings or emperors! Another pet hate is when they call a mountain climb mythical. No you twat, it wouldn't exist if it was a myth, the word you're looking for is legendary. And Brian Smith with 'you know' every other phrase - if I knew you wouldn't need to tell me you illiterate git with a restricted speech code. Grrrrr......
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Maybe she means that they are coming round to identify the things growing from the piles of crap left lying on the floor
    inside the house

    Not a mis-quote as such but..
    Years ago(early 80s) we were on Holiday in the Yorkshire Dales and my Dad didn't have change for the Car Park in Hawes(IIRC) so he risked it.On our return there was something under his wiper and my mum said"Bloody hell Alan I told you to come back and pay,now we've got a Farking Pine"!
    It's stuck with me all these years
