I find the overuse of the word "Bespoke" irritating.

Here's another one: "Oven-baked".
What else are you going to bake something in?

"Panfried". In case you're worried that we fried it on a shovel.

I'm currently working in America where I see signs notifying me that the business inside is a hair cuttery.

I only ever see the term “eatery” in Eddie rockets in Ireland.

The problem being I always need to go to the sh1tery two hours after having a feed in there.....Which is a major pain when I’m out with the wife at he shopery.

Nunnery: old enough for Shakespeare to have used it but rarely heard nowadays.
Cattery not to be confused with catery; the former is where cats are housed, the latter where provisions are stored.

When I look up the origins it says it was first used in 1901 but I've only heard it in the past few years.
this calls for an "explainer"
