Tired vs. tiring

We talked about the difference of bored vs. boring:

  • This lecture is so boring.
  • I am bored because of this lecture.

Well, similar difference between tired and tiring:

  • The carrying of baggage up the room is tiring.
  • It made me tired.

And why did I even start talking about this strange word, tiring, that isn’t used very often to begin with? Why, because of this joke, of course:

Tire = pneumatika
Tiring = “pneumatikování”
, or, as mentioned above, something that makes you tired. Nice way to remember this, isn’t it?
