My dad does this. I get that it's to emphasise how warm it is, but as I've no experience of using the Fahrenheit scale, I've no idea how warm it is meaning it's completely lost on me.

Rough guide, subtract 30 and then half it. So 70F is approx 20C.

Most people who leave reviews.
 


If the staff are so good, why have you scored them 7.5/10? If your stay was perfect why have you given the place 7/10?

There's still (some) value in reviews (of some categories of things), but taken individually they're dire.

I still look out for google reviews left by a former colleague. He mainly reviews fast food chains, car parks and cash machines. You'd be surprised how many cash machines are poorly positioned and badly affected by glare.

The use of the word "delicious" to describe anything other than food makes my skin crawl. Definitely in fashion on this fine forum, usually used as a dig at something/someone and it's horrible to read.

Trip advisor is the worst review thing IMO. 
 

You could type in “best restaurant London” and it will bring up some b&b with sticky carpets and undercooked fry-ups but is great value at just £11 per night. 
 

As a qualified historian, reviews grate a bit. 

I think it was Vice who completely made up a restaurant in London and got it to the top of review sites. Made it out like an exclusive place that was hard to get a seat for, whenever anyone phoned they would say it was full, they never cooked a meal but the reviews kept flowing in from people saying how cool and unique an experience it was. People lying about having a meal in a restaurant online to try and seem cool. I hate people.

People that don't flatten or fold boxes before putting them in the recycling bins. 

I could put this in the infuriating things your partner does thread.
