The Jargon File

Abortion

Something worse than terrible.

Imagine being offered a cup of tea, and accepting gracefully.  Then, you discover that instead of PG Tips, it's Earl Grey.  That's not an abortion, that's just making a shite of it.

Now imaging being offered the same cup of tea, accepting gracefully, and then discovering instead of PG Tips, it's Earl Grey with orange juice instead of milk.  

That is an abortion.
