It raises my IRE

The Eye Pavilion, where I work, is an outlying part of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. This is abbreviated to RIE for ease of communication. But for some strange reason, our local newspaper persists in calling it ERI - Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. To me, it's like they're trying to create an insider status for themselves, much like a middle-aged parent trying to appear cool to his kids, by using what they believe to be the in-phrase, and getting it horribly wrong. Everyone who works for the Lothian Health Trust says RIE. The bed linen is stamped RIE. What more proof do you need?

RIE is part of the atheist conspiracy which is constructed by satan and his minions.

ERI is the one true name because god said so in a parable of the bible. Only those who are with the spirit of the lord are able to understand this. As you do not understand this, you need to pray for redemption so that you will understand.

Ok, enough of that hogwash .. ;)

Stamped bed linens trump local newspapers. RIE it is!
