My partner Vincent is an immigrant from Europe so his English is … shall we say, interesting sometimes. He comes up with some of the damdest expressions. Here’s one for today. We had discussed design problems with a particular website and how these things sometimes pile on top of each other. He was quite exasperated and said ” … bad things come to us without our consent!” Well of course because if we had consent in those matters “bad things” wouldn’t exist (Captain Obvious).
