Abuse of the English language

In common with all decent folk, I regard estate agents as being only marginally less odious than child pornographers, Shoah deniers, government spin doctors and the like, so sympathy for estate agency employees does not come naturally, shall we say.

Anyway, many of the London estate agencies now inflict cars bedecked with corporate logos etc (apparently it is in part a tax avoidance measure) on their staff. So far, so no more than they deserve. However, one of them has gone a stage further, and refers in its advertising to its 'property response vehicles'. This seems a cruel and unusual punishment, and I would not be surprised if the poor benighted junior house pimps face office fines if they use the wrong word. I imagine an ordinary client conversation at Ludlow Thompson (for it is they) involves said PBJHP declaring, 'I'll take you to see the desirable residence with its en suite to the master bedroom and south facing aspect in the property response vehicle which is in the property response vehicle park at the back of the office'. Even estate agents do not deserve that.

At Foxtons the bigger a cunt you are , sorry the more successful you are the better chance you have of getting a decal free mini.
Some kind of reward scheme.Probably saves people thinking "look at that cunt from Foxtons " everytime they look at a foxtons mini
