Are there any sayings you wish would go away?

"it's on my bucket list..."

So tired of that one.

It's usually politicians that use the phrase "moving forward." They must have a book of political catchphrases that they can use.

"Outside the box" or Outside the envelope"

when people add "just saying" after a sentence when they think it might tick some one off.

it's got to be all the idiot rock stars and over paid athletes who continually say "you know what I'm sayin" 24 times in a 90 second conversation while simultaneously holding up two fingers up on each hand as further expression

how about "bite me"good when it needs to be good and great when it needs to be bad it simply makes the statement

"at the end of the day"

Really!! what ever happened to's your choice, you need to decide, things haven't changed...

"World class" used to describe an Olympic or international athlete, if they were not world class, they would not be in the applicable competition, would they?!

"Elephant in the room"

people think they're intellectual when they say annoying!

you forgot

whatever - which means nothing

Paradigm shift - which means nothing

OOOHkkkkk - which means nothing

you also missed a whole plethora of bad business platitudes used only by jack a$$es trying to sound like they know something about anything.

I.e. lets get down to brass tacks

get er done

I"ll take that under advisement and get back to you - which means they don't have a clue and your never going to be contacted back.


the 2 most overly used and annoying phrases on the planet, usually perpetrated by your manager LUMBERG on a friday at 4 o clock:

Hey have you got a minute! - which means you going to do his or her job whether you want to or not.


I need you to do me a favour - which means your being told and your not getting out of here any time soon.
