#5 – Making Every Sentence Sound Like A Question
Think Aussie soaps and the characters whose habit is to make every normal sentence sound like it’s a question. The technical term for this phenomenon is ‘high-rise terminals’. The feeling it evokes when you have to listen to it is one which makes you want to drop the culprit off the nearest high-rise building. This infuriating habit has unfortunately made its way over to these shores so the normal ones amongst us now have to endure listening to these idiots who don’t even know they’re doing it. That’s the annoying part. If it’s a question, by all means make it sound like one. If not, don’t. Simples. No one could blame you for walking away mid-conversation to stop yourself from bubbling over. It’s either that or blowing a gasket as you grab the guilty party by the scruff of the neck, barking, ‘Why, or why, or why?’ in their faces.
