Folk that think they're clever by using Latin in their dialogue...

    ... but get it wrong.

    These scratters boil my piss.

    Couple on today's A Place In The Sun. The woman (100% wadnt) kept saying how certain properties "ticked boxes ek-cetera" instead of "etcetera". She probably writes "ect" instead of "etc", as well.

    General rule: Especially if you're on TV, don't try and look clever by using words that either aren't in your vocabulary or words that you don't know about.

    There may be other examples of this practice, but I'm too upset about this assault on common sense & decency.

    Forgive me, please. I was referring to a popular website that explains words n that.

    www.dictionary.com

    In essence, I used one of two ways to write the expression.

    Also, I'm not posh and don't profess to be, so I feel your satire is a tad misdirected. With respect.
