Hi everyone !
Have you read the previous article about English language evolution ?
Wine o’ clock or beer o’ clock, also added to Oxford Dictionaries in 2015, is when a person decides that it’s the correct time to have a glass of the drink in question.
It is a new way of telling the time. Very good isn't it ?

Now,
In the States, a credit card and a debit card are completely different while in France we don't make a difference.
I advise to consider this as what we have in France ("Carte Bleue", "carte Visa", etc.) under the name of "carte de crédit" are in fact what Americans name debit cards 'Kay?
Take care, this is bloody important and you could be in troubles if you don't know the difference for example in an Am hotel, when a company will pay for your expenses but they ask you -at check-in- for your "credit card" just to identify you and have a coverage... in fact your account will be debited for a few days!! Be aware!! The reception desk asks for a credit card and you hand a debit card!!

I don't know if I explained clearly and correctly but I never met a bank employee knowing about this.

Do you know that expression origin ?
Pertains to torture used during the Crusade's. As a method for extracting confession for heresy, non-believers were positioned in a manner that allowed the inquisitor to apply flames to the feet of the accused. This was done until the accused confessed or died

You can always safely say that something is a "pain in the neck." "Pain in the ass" (UK: arse) and "pain in the butt" are less polite.
