    Is it Nicked or Knicked?

    Deleting this because it is causing too many issues. Forget I asked.

    There's an app for that. It's called Google. Just type, 'nicked' into the search bar and you would already have your answer. BTW, it's nicked.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell

    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    Can the sarcasm. I just asked a simple question, I wanted a simple answer. If I could've used google, I would of. I didn't have the luxury to search google at the time because at the time, I was at work not only that, my mobil service is terrible, can barley even load up fb. I was on my way to work when I'd made this post.

    So please, next time don't just assume someone is stupid or too lazey to use the internet.

    Sorry Scarlett, next time we'll try to give a damn. Notwithstanding the fact that somehow you were on this site while asking, I looked it up. Nicked: as in scratched or took a chunk out-of, nicked as in cheated/stole; nicked as in drunk in some po-dunk in Canada ( sounds pretty obscure, and isn't everyone in some po-dunk in Canada? Sorry for the spelling. I did not look up Po-dunk). At your service, Ma'am...

    But didn't you use the internet to post your question?

    I don't have to use google if I don't want to. If you don't like the fact that I took to asking a writing forum instead of doing a google search, that's your problem not mine. You do not have to be rude, I did nothing to you. I said nothing wrong. I did not deserve a rude and sarcastic comment. if you wanted to comment like that, you could have kept it to yourself. A simple "nicked" would have sufficed. This IS after all the GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION FORUM. These questions are to be posted here, as I've seen done numerous times by other users.

    If I wanted to go to google, I would have googled it.

    Knicked for stolen, nicked for cut in a small way; or, nicked for stolen, nicked for cut in a small way if you are a colonial...
    A man in possession of a wooden spoon must be in want of a pot to stir.

    I have to agree that the tone of some of the comments here were out of line. I hope that the people responsible will be big enough to admit their wrong and apologise.

    Right. We'll just wait til it's confirmed. Add also oversensitive. Google has spelchek too.

    I usually agree with you, but this time I would have put it the other way around, possibly because knicked with a knife. Anyway, I want to Google, and I don't find a definitive answer there, well, I do, but I find both definitive answers there, depending which dictionary you choose. Take your choice.
