For me it's "It's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all." Bull. Shit.

"Good times"

Just shut up already. If you have to say it was good times, they probably weren't all that good.

The use of "Blood" as of term of endearment. My father and uncles use and it annoys me. I've heard it for 20 years and thankfully my dad doesn't use it any more, unless with my uncles.

"cool beans" My father used that phrase all the time. I don't like my father. I don't like that phrase now. That phrase makes me want to hit people.

the insertion of "you know" into sentences. If I knew you wouldn't need to tell me. Also the term "what not." plus any time I hear "paradigm, vision statement, thing."

"Same difference"

"You go, girl[friend]"

"think outside the box"

Any one of the three makes me at least consider taking hostages.

When people say "Wanna come with?" I just don't get it and everyone around me uses that saying. Are you too damn lazy to add a freakin pronoun at the end of it? "Wanna come with me? Wanna come with us?"


That really annoys..............me.

I can't really think of any phrases. Misusing Your and You're, its and it's, lose and loose and inserting chat talk into everyday conversations drive me crazy.

Whoever came up with "There's no such thing as a stupid question.", obviously never worked a help desk.

There are plenty of stupid questions...I've heard most of them.

Anything that uses the word "Kirking" or any derivative of it.

It always confuses me when I hear it, so I try to work a sentence back at them using the work "Spocking."

Their blank look usually matches mine when I hear about a "Kirk out."

The phrase "exsqueeze me?" is the verbal equivalent of scraping styrofoam for me.

I don't like people saying "I could care less." It should be "I couldn't care less." If you could care less, that means that you do actually care.

Not when you don't want to take the effort to care any more less then you already do.

I'm starting to hate people who feel the need to insert 'like' into most every sentence they say.

"...it's like this or that..."

"Like What are you talking about?"

There's nothing 'like' about it, it's EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Almost everyone I know or meet has this problem, too. Listen to the next person you talk to, and I'll bet they say 'like' at least five times while they talk to you, and not because the word is needed in the sentence.

It's like a disease or something. It's annoying.

Any sentence beginning with the word "literally" that then describes a figurative statement.

"That show was literally killing me!" Really? So, are you talking, or is your corpse rotting from the inside and building up gas that is now escaping through your throat in a way that mimics speech?

Any sentence featuring the word "totally" that then describes a situation that isn't total. "That road trip was totally awesome, except for all the speeding tickets we got." Uh huh.

Yeah, I hate "it's all good" and "cool beans," too.

And "hella."

And "w00t."

And "diaper gravy."

(although that one's not so commonly used, luckily.)
