Pregn’nt & illitret?

"Your" in luck - New Look have the perfect garb for you:

I had to go clothes-shopping with the girls yesterday - can you tell that I was bored of waiting outside the changing-rooms?

Next time I'll take a thick black permanent marker so that I can go around making appropriate corrections.

    That sort of thing really gets my back up. Get your magic marker and go back.

    @alan.sloman -

    My computery codey stuff is crap - apologies:
    Shouldn't that have been "I was bored with waiting"?

    @alan.sloman -
    Maybe. I think it's a regional thing. It could have been "I was bored by waiting...".

    To circumvent such ambiguity I've edited the post - after all, the boredom was universal rather than just because of the waiting.

    Look on the bright side - at least I didn't use "of" as a piss-poor substitute for "have". 😈

    You two should kiss and make up.

    Just to clarify matters... that of/have thing was intended as a general gibe rather than being directed at an individual.

    @Alen McF - As you're a professional writer maybe you could educate us all here... "bored of...", "bored with...", "bored by..."?

    Remember to show your working-out (as opposed to "you're working out") 😀

    Things are going to get much worse than this over the next decade. Every 2nd word will have to start with an F and end in G.
    I find the direction language is going absolutely appalling. Not that my writing is without fault.
    F-ing is now taking over youngster vocabulary so the next generation will be a mess.
