I saw it again, this time on a comment on the BBC page. That funny mix up between pressured and pressurised! It’s a hoot, I tell you:
“I didn’t want to do it but he pressurised me” “I’m being pressurised into doing it”
“Pressurised”? Surely not. What, someone has stuck an airline up your bahookie and is pumping you up? Like a balloon? Nah! Really? puff puff puff…
Learn to speak - “pressured”! doh, I don’t know.
Next time you hear someone say this, just imagine them slowly inflating and flying off before your very eyes!
