When something’s not working we tend to say it’s ‘out of order’. You might even have friends who are sometimes out of order, or you could be out of order yourself. I’m sometimes out of order.
But back to the point, it bugs me something chronic when my computer is ‘on the blink’ and I get even more annoyed when my music equipment has gremlins. When work comes to a halt someone has thrown a spanner in the works.
I’m rambling away but I felt the need to post something, because things seem to be running as smoothly as a piece of sand paper over a baby’s bum. Don’t complain it’s just language.
