I brought a new car lastnite

I got that the other day, and now the person in question refers to it as a 'TonyPhone' as 'HTC Desire HD' is too much of a mouthful.

Mom is not American English... It is a regional variation, much like Mam. Sure, Americans and Canadians use it but so do some areas of the UK. I use it for example (but then again, my Mom is Canadian!)

Calling something a Red Herring when it should read 'White Elephant'
That's been bugging me all morning

Ah hah, but maybe I meant 'red herring' and people have been replying with the wrong answers all day. A red herring is a decoy basically, something that distracts. Maybe I wanted to know what the costliest distractions were in schools, such as giving each student a slate PC to do work but it distracts the user from actually doing their work.......

People who are unable to use the function toggle for outputting to the screen on laptops after they've been trained, given a paper document and shown countless times - then after you've done it they look at you like you're showing them something totally new!
