The Stress Fiend is many things. One of her more surprising guises is Language Purist, something that dovetails neatly with her instant rage at clients with foreign accents and young people who use text-message abbreviations in casual emails and instant message sessions. It's a testament to her ... uh ... well, something about her, anyway, that she doesn't let her own borderline literacy and general incoherence get in the way of condemning the linguistic shortcomings of others.

It also makes statements like this all the more bemusing (and this is an exact quote):

"Oh, that's right. That was another of those goddamn frigging wossname bloody ones, isn't it?"

I'm not even going to pretend to try to understand what that one was about.
