    It was originally Princes' Street being named after two Princes as you said. The apostrophe was lost 100 years ago, or so.
    Probably in the euphoric, chaotic celebrations following Hearts's most famous victory.

    Grown men and women referring to their pets as their "wee boy" or "wee girl" - or even more tragic and puerile - call themselves their mutt's "Mummy" or "Daddy".

    I feel there's no need to explain why that's so cringeworthy.

    It's quite sad if the pet is a child substitute. But sickening too.

    Or trying to convince parents that being a pet owner carries the same responsibility as being a parent.

    I've read on more than one occasion Amercian women refer to themselves as a "fur mummy" which should be a criminal offence.

    I'd expand that to any roaster that is watching an event through their phone.

    Drinking games. What’s the point, unless you’re a teenaged girl?

    In my experience: they’re not fun or funny. The whole “drink two fingers thing” means you’re drinking less than if you were just sitting enjoying your drink as normal. And the objective of the game (to get you pished) is what will happen if you just sit and drink with your mates anyway.

    Or then there’s the ones where there’s one minging drink for someone to down at the end of each round, where inevitably the loud mouths and bullies of the group will ensure one person gets absolutely slaughtered.

    Give me sitting arguing endlessly about stupid topics any day of the week, while I enjoy my bevy.

    I'm a bit peeved that Zara Philips has had a baby. I've now dropped down yet another place in succession to the throne.

    This might have already been covered, but people who end sentences with the word "but". (... other than in the way that I've just done it...). I'm no stickler for grammer, I couldn't care less about most things, but I would assume to wait for more information when someone says the word but. (done it again)


    "The shop shuts at 9 but" ... I don't know when it started and I don't know why it started, but it confuses the heck out of me.

    In hindsight, there were a lot of but's in that post.
    Mon the Hibs.

    My in laws from Coatbridge use this a lot. It's the Lanarkshire equivalent of Edinburghers using the word eh. Whilst some weegies add sure at the end of their sentences.

    I thought "eh" was a Fife thing.

    I used to use it a lot, until I came to Edinburgh and had people point it out to me.

    You get this a lot in the German language in some regional dialects. In the south west they end their sentences with "gell", in the north west with "nah" and in the Prussian heartlands with "wa". It does my head in because it makes everything sound like a question.

    I'm from Stirling and we use "eh" I had never noticed before then worked with a guy from Port Glasgow who regularly pointed it out.

    You don’t hear it do often these days but I mind folks using the word ‘well’ in exactly the same way.
    “The shop’s open again at 7 the morn, well”

    Shift the "But" to the start of the sentence and it makes perfect sense, but.

    Weegies also like to end with a variation of:

    - so I did
    - so they will
