Saudi Arabia vs Quatar: taking pettishness to the next level

Recommended Posts

Saudi Arabia could turn rival Qatar into an island by digging new canal

To summarise: the Saudis are mightily peeved off with their little neighbour, who are refusing to bend the knee. To make their displeasure clear, they want to dig a bloody great ditch in order to cut off the entire country of Quatar from the rest of the Arabian peninsula. And to rub it in, they also want to build a nuclear reprocessing plant right on the border.

Pettishness: god-level.

Pettiness, surely?

Yeah pettiness.

After reading the title I stopped reading and blocked DeepLurker so I would never have to read mispelled words from them ever again. I will never know what he intended to communicate.

Pettiness.

Surely pettishness would be about the abuse of camels?

You lot really should leave the attempted pedantry to the experts.

You learn something new every day. In this case a word.

The thing that confuses me now is that the situation as outlined in the OP is petty more than pettish. I mean digging a trench is so pointless as to be petty, rather than bad tempered.

Top marks there to the resident pedant. :)

I just think standards need maintaining.

I, for one, would never post unless my smoking jacket and cravat are in perfect order.

Otherwise we are little more than savages.

Spunko said that plugins for the forum software are allowed, plus we already know that auto-replace works(a lot of the typos repeat). Between the lot of us we ought to be able to create something that can render his posts comprehensible.

I just get my dyslexic son to read them out to me. Apparently they are in perfect English to him.
