    It’s even more annoying when every supermarket in NZ has a sign saying “10 items or less” in the express lane, when it should be “10 items or fewer”.

      ARRGHHHH! With one exception, the UK supermarkets do that as well, Nicola, and it drives me mental. In fact, when people get ‘less’ and ‘fewer’ confused as concepts I’m hard-pressed the resist the urge to make a bit of a Joey face at them.
