My newest pet peeve

When someone tells you a story and starts talking about people you don’t know as if you know them. “Oh and the other day Jackie and Bill were saying…” Who the fuck are Jackie and Bill? How hard is it to day, “my friend Jackie and her husband Bill” or “this woman I work with, Jackie, and her stock analyst, Bill” or, “this dame I met in a bar, Jackie, and her S&M slave in a dog collar, Bill”?

Thanks. I feel better.
