Impressive linguistic CV but you failed to mention the chip on your shoulder!
Why get on your high horse (idiom) when someone simply tries to be helpful?
I’m sure the ever changing tax situation across here is a worry to many and if someone wants to pass on their experience(s) then surely that is a good thing?
ps Brits sometimes do use the word "electric" in place of electricity. You might like to check the link below to the Free Online Dictionary.
What’s more, electricity is also referred to as the "Leccy" in some parts of the country.
