Half full, half empty? Pah!

I get really annoyed with people saying "you mean half-full" when I say "half-empty". No, I'm not being negative - I mean "half-empty". If I have a pint glass of beer - hypothetical example, of course - then it starts full and, over a period of time, tends towards an empty state through the half-empty point. In the process of refilling, it passes through half-full towards being topped up to the brim. Or if I fill a bath-tub it can be half-full but when I pull the plug it can eventually be half-empty.

Stop getting hung-up on this - you'll know when I'm being negative.
