Phrases that you hate ...

I freaking cannot stand the phrase "cool beans"!!! It drives me crazy.

I also get annoyed when people say "no pun intended" because they not only intend to make the pun but they are underlining that fact.

I hate the phrase "no offense", too, because someone's about to tell you something that is probably going to offend you.

What phrases do you hate?

Re: Phrases that you hate ...

"not tonight, hon, Ive got a headache" ?

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

one, used for any non-numerical purpose.

ex: one can imagine (insert whatevah) ... dated, condescending, presumptuous, unnecessary, redundant and pretentious.

false intelligentsia.

Re: Phrases that you hate ...

any kind of management speak gets right on my nerves phrases like:

"pushing the envelope"
"thinking outside the box"
"cascading of information"
"let's touch base"
"face time"
"let's square the circle"
"blue sky thinking"
and my new love to hate one which i heard for the first time the other day is the not too annoying "brainstorming" has apparently been replaced with the politically correct "idea shower" dear God....
