Yes doubling down is really one of the most annoying thing in recent broadcasts.

There's a clickbait heading in the BBC England news page

Robber jailed for attacking girl, 13, over phone

Click the clickbait and it was a violent attack during a robbery involving the phone

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-n ... e-63677067

ie I misread "over the phone" to mean the suspect achieved a result during a phone call

It was "basgetti' in our house when the children were little
When one of our children was little we had a washing shamine. I quite miss it.

When our older daughter was little - she's 47 now - asked what our dog, "Sally" was doing, she was told, "She's investigating."
From then on, Sally was invergestinating! :lol: :lol:
