Whenever someone says "ATM machine" or "PIN number" I always snap at them and am like "Don't say machine/number >>" and they're like "WTF?"

Then I have to explain it to them... >>

Sorry about that.

Uh, no... The post you just posted was your first post in this topic. Tim was "welcoming" me because I said something redundant that included "Pleased to meet you". It's one of his habits, as he stated.

I get annoyed by the same thing, but I try to refrain from correcting people. (Otherwise, everyone would hate me for correcting them constantly.)

My best friend and I used to amuse ourselves by writing an absurd magazine. We would feature a musician each month, beginning with a sentence similar to the following:

Quote:

This month's musician who is the Musician Of The Month for this month is John Smith, who is the musician who we have named the Musician Of The Month for this month.


That's redundancy. :D
