I have always referred to my own PPI redress as £20K, but in actuality it was a few hundred quid more than that.
I expect "meer53" similarly rounds up (or down) rather than typing £11, 024.03 each time!
‘£11,000 To be precise’ is what piqued my interest in the post.
it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
there - 'in or at that place'
their - 'owned by them'
they're - 'they are'
it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)
The problem is that people are misunderstanding some nuances of the English language when reading his post. He said "£11,000 to be precise" but that doesn't necessarily mean his payout was exactly that amount. It's the precise number of thousands in response to somebody else saying that some people get "thousands" so may be rounded.
It's a "precise" number in the context it was used (of discussing "thousands") but may not be mathematically precise.
