    Reading Tripadvisor reports where the eaterie in question posts a standard reply:

    Report: Terrible food and slow, surly service, worst restaurant in the whole region. Avoid this place at all costs

    Response: "Thank you to Mr/Mrs XYX."

    The ones for The Crediton Inn are quite amusing.

    I read it, too. Sounds like the "Soup Nazi" in Seinfeld. But good for her : kick out the riff-raff.

    Re: Little things that amuse you

    Picking my kid up from junior school and i was chatting to a new parent who i'd not really talked to before and they were talking about facebook / twitter. My kid comes up, hears the conversation and butts in telling the lady i was speaking to that "dad says people on there are all nazis".

    She'd heard me say 'narcissists' quite a few times and got them mixed up as they must sound similar when said quickly.

    I swiftly cleared up the misunderstanding.
