Pedantry in a humorous vein
Sent to me and I couldn't resist posting it here:-
Dear Mr. Mellor,
I realize it is a bit of a quibble, but shouldn't that be 'about 125 miles', 'a bit under 125 miles', or (most accurately), 'a bit over 124 miles'?
I will restrain my pedantic metric tendencies, and not grumble about the different sizes of mile...
Anon - name withheld by me.
PMT is now an acronym for Pendantic Metric Tendencies :-)
