    Quoted from gambit3113:

    Totes. The word is totes. Tots is a grouping of toddlers.

    I thought these were tots?

    Or a shortening of tater-tots. Now, when used in a setting with children it's fine, but grown people referring to them as "tots" does bug me a bit. But I don't hang out at Sonic Burger so i don;t have to deal with it much.

    I hate it when I see someone disrespecting small, round cut cylinders of deep fried potatoes by using the totes easy-to-say abbreviation "tot." And don't get me started on shortening the honorable potato to "tater," in the first place! Just say round cut cylinders of deep fried potatoes!! Is that so hard?

    I apologize for offending your sensibilities. I will reflect on this and do better going forward.

    Don't we already have a pinside bitch thread ?

    Totes merch bra, legit vocab. Ridic.

    I was about to say something, but it was funny how it was trying to use it

    Really?

    I saw a man on a hill with a telescope.

    means:

    There’s a man on a hill, and I’m watching him with my telescope.
    There’s a man on a hill, who I’m seeing, and he has a telescope.
    There’s a man, and he’s on a hill that also has a telescope on it.
    I’m on a hill, and I saw a man using a telescope.
    There’s a man on a hill, and I’m sawing him with a telescope.

    Another example:

    We saw her duck.

    means:
    We looked at a duck that belonged to her.
    We looked at her quickly squat down to avoid something.
    We use a saw to cut her duck.

    Conclusion: Merch is fine...and we have bigger problems with the English language.

    Guess we cannot call pinball machines “pins” anymore.

    OP is all worked up over the wrong use of abbreviation.

    The one to get pissed off about is 'parm' for parmesan.

    'Guac' is another.

    I dont know where it came from or what generation, but they sure do love to use them in food marketing, so the masses will say the same.

    Oh crap, I use both of those ...

    Quoted from Goronic:

    Lots of people do.

    I just never understood it, and I just so happen to be a terrible, horrible no good millenial, born in 84 (although I relate more so to the working class Gen Xer)

    Ya know, cuz this stuff matters.
    Oops!

    As a card carrying GenX'r, if you are bothered by things like the words "guac" and "parm", I assure you that you do not.

    A slight annoyance at best for the sake of, ya know, discussion.

    I claim no "card" to any group, nor will I assume other peoples situations. From my experience theres alot of grey area and never really belonged to either classification, really. Kinda proud of that actually. The fewer of any of these silly card carrying member groups I belong to, the better.

    I think "Parm" gets a pass becasue "Chicken Parm" has been colloquially used for a long time.

    Whilst I was typing this my wife said "Obvi" instead of obviously...goddamn Melinnials.

    "Mac" gets a pass IMO.

    You guys would really hate to read my notes in college. Abbreviations everywhere. Some in code only I could understand.

    Maybe Service Merchandise brick and mortar stores would have stayed solvent if they were more hip and called themselves “Service Merch”

    #75 2 years ago

    I prefer “stuff”, “odds and ends”, and sometimes “sundries” if I’m feeling sassy

    I do hate when people order a sandwich and don’t say “mozzarella” and instead say “mutz”. This may be only a NY, NJ issue, but it makes them sound ignorant or like their perpetuating a bad Italian American stereotype. Like that Guy Fieri who has no T is his name, but says it anyway or “anyways”.

    It’s bratwurst

    No brat!

    Quoted from herbertbsharp:

    Merch is an old-ass term, like from the 90's or earlier. They are probably trying to relate to old bastards more than millennials.

    This kills me. old ass term from the 90's or even earlier!

    All you young whippersnappers with your foreshortened words and such things.
    It is two of the clock, not 2 o'clock! Consarn-it!

    No, "decks!"
