My pet hate (Or, at least, ONE of them) is when the line that should be delivered as

Just, Perfect and Regular

Is given as
Just perfect, and regular (1) (13)
Then gently scan your brother man,
Still gentler sister woman;
Though they may gang a kennin' wrang,
To step aside is human.

Thats quite different to Emulation and Taylors workings where there is no mention of sleep.
Prayer, labour and refreshment, serving a friend or brother in time of need without detriment to ourselves or connections.
Slight difference in wording between these two English workings.

In my Lodge there is a Brother who warns us every festive board that the words of Grace are "to thee alone be honour....Glory, now and henceforth etc"
and has not yet realized that most of the brethren add "and" between Honour...Glory" just because he throws a fit every time.

One of the best Graces I ever heard was, "For what we are about to receive may the Lord be truly thankful!"

Or of course that old Royal Navy favorite "Has anyone seen the Padre? Thank God"
