You've never heard of an ATM Machine?

An atm is an automated teller machine. I have never heard anyone say "ATM Machine". I hear people ask where the ATM is or say they use the ATM, I have never heard anyone ask where the atm machine is.

Really?

What about "Free Gift"?

"Over-exaggerate"?

Tautologies and redundancies are not only common in our language but very acceptable, get over yourself and stop being a prick.

I'm being a prick. You could have just taken me being an asshole or a smartass and stepped above it, but you want to belabor the point.

Television uses "Free Gift" to sell shit to people that isn't free so it is purely a misnomer.

Over-exaggerate is about degrees, dumbass.

Don't get all high and mighty over someone being a prick or, possibly, joking around with you. Cranky ass.

Talk about getting over yourself.

He does, but only because he thinks ATM stands for Ass To Mouth.

given your irrational fear of it, yes, that is exactly what I expected you to do. Especially given how many people offered it to you for free while you ignored them, including me.

Did you review it?
