Damn! I forgot "Can I be honest with you?".

Why? Were you planning on LYING to me? So glad you asked my permission to tell me the truth!

"Holla atcha boy/girl"

It makes me want to drag that person face-first down a street full of broken glass when i hear that. I'm so hip...

And non-Italians saying "ciao". Most of the dipshits can't even spell it.

My boss just used this phrase 12 times in a 30 minute meeting....he also used "Bottomline" and "it is what it is" during the same meeting.....

"Bottom line at the end of the day it is what is and that is life in the big city." - I think I may have to kill him

"If you look in a dictionary under [XXX], you'll see a picture of [YYY]." Uh, no you won't. I've seen, maybe, like, 5 pictures in a dictionary in my lifetime. And it wasn't Tom Selleck next to "handsome"... it was a picture of a mongoose or something. So STOP.

"Got [XXXX]" Ugh.

And also, not really a phrase so much as a commonly-used sign at sporting events and such... but I'm sending a cease and desist letter to that whole "Tickets: 20 dollars, Official Program: 5 bucks, Seeing Blah blah blah blah blah blah: Priceless" gimmick.

Oh, and "Easy for me to say!" when someone messes up their words. It makes me want to die when I hear someone say that.

I got to agree with Ya Know and Same Difference but the worst is Not for Nothing. It's some people think they're giving you constructive criticism but they might as well as say you're a F'n idiot.

I'm kind of tired of "color me [adjective]" and substituting "picked up" for "bought" but I mostly see these on this board and not so many other places so it isn't that big of a deal really.

One of the most annoying pharases is "Jump the Shark." I swear people who use that are just trying to show how hip and cool they are while bitching about BtVS.

while in the subject of netspeak, I want to shoot anyone and everyone who uses the phrase "pwn". I'm so happy that p has become a vowel for them (not really), but it drives me up a wall.

Hey, let's go with "drives xxx up a wall." I bet that gets pretty annoying to people who hear me say it a lot. :)

After reading the Taboo Tuesday thread, I think my new most pissed off inducing frase is "Was what it was".

Not to mention "METHINKS".

I know I've already responded in this thread, but I also have to mention I grit my teeth when I see someone write, for instance, "$2 million dollars." It's either $2 million or two million dollars ... using both is like wearing boots over your shoes.

I have the same problem with people who say "ATM Machine" or "PIN number"

I also have a really big problem with people who include nicknames in with their real names. You cannot say, "Shaq O'Neal". He's either Shaquille O'Neal or he's Shaq.

I can't stand hearing "YEAH BABY"...although when it's Special Agent Tanya saying it when I play Red Alert 2, it's less grating on the nerves.

AND...one thing that will always annoy me is when someone mispronounces my name or calls me by a nickname I don't go by. I'm not Steve, I'm not Buddy...I'm Steven :-)

Any usage of "LOL" annoys me greatly. I feel dirty just typing it.
