The Cringe Effect
I don't know why, it just is abhorent to me, although, to the the person who does it, it must seem personally inoccuous (if that is the correct spelling?)
I was reminded of this last night when George Negus said the words - quote/unquote, without making the sign with his fingers.
This is probably the only expression, that I remember, that has this cringe effect on me.
Until Next time.
