Topic: Word for room for testing
Posted: Sunday, November 18, 2018 7:54:18 AM
Some facilities provide break rooms as a place to sit and perhaps have a drink or a lunch. A waiting room is a place to sit while you wait for an appointment or some other event to occur, such as having the tires rotated on your car.

In the US, a restroom is most definitely the "toilet" ("loo") or better known as a bathroom (it's the room which includes the toilet). You don't "rest" there.

And when someone thinks you are "beating a dead horse", they might suggest you "give it a rest".

Dreams are countable. I had 3 bad dreams last night. You are confusing countable with tangible. Enough said.
Topic: 50th/fiftieth anniversary

Could you please be a little more clear on your question? 50th and fiftieth are the same... Are you asking about written form?

In my neck of the woods, a person simply "gets some Z's".

Posted: Sunday, November 11, 2018 6:00:43 PM
In the US, folks say "packed in like sardines".
Topic: Jeff, a man clearly overweight

Let's begin with this: a comma is needed following "overweight".
Topic: Mixed up, muddled up

Absolutely, yes, drop the "got" in every one of those sample sentences! Using those in that fashion makes you sound like you never advanced beyond 6th grade. All the justification in the world doesn't change this.

Correct Version of the Quote:
You have them mixed up.
You have them muddled up.
You have them jumbled up.
Topic: Hello everyone.

Hello, everyone.

I believe this is correct since "everyone" is being used as a noun of address, which is set off by commas.
