"An insufferable breech of etiquette is being committed behind your back,” a Wordpress.com blog item declared, referring to people who sneak a look over your shoulder while you’re working at your computer.

It meant a breach of etiquette, of course. Breaches are breaks, whereas breeches are backsides or trousers (a.k.a. britches). Some Bible translations say Adam and Eve sewed together fig leaves to make breeches. (Others say aprons, but none says britches to my knowledge.)
