Just reading your elegiac thoughts there....chin up PRVWL, it's hardwired into folks nature to be picky -some to a greater extent than others....people and chimpanzees need to nit-pick to rationalise sometimes, supposed to aid decision making and raise standards (if not legalities and price benchmarking hahaha). Humanity is always going to be this way. Then, of course, there ARE the true, derelict souled nit-pickers out there...the irredeemable ones, the chronically discontented. Harsh/negative criticism we can all do without, mind you.
Q1. is nit-picking about nit-picking (meta) nit-picking?
Q2. Is there a difference between complaining and nit-picking? No, there is only 'and'.
Hope all forumites looking forward to a rash of sunshiney, high pressure, azores type fandanglement over the upcoming Bank Holiday? I've a date with a powerwasher, some square meterage of paving stones and maybe even an auld rake.
All Hail Tarmacadam.
Good weekenders to all y'all.
