Subject: what phrases do you hate?
From: GUEST,Bruce Baillie
Date: 10 Aug 06 - 12:03 PM

What common phrases sayings or words do you hate then? here are a few of that are always guaranteed to get right up my fucking nose!
People who use expressions like 'Nice one!' 'No sweat!' 'Give me a bell!' 'Chill out!' '24/7!' ...these cause me mild irritation...
'No problem!' or 'Not a problem!' (this usually comes from someone in a shop when you've just bought a large item such as a new fridge and you ask them to deliver it on a Thursday!) as soon as the words have left there mouth you know there is definately going to be a problem, you'll wait in all day for a deliveryman who never comes and then they ring at 5pm and ask if it's OK if they deliver it the day after because there's 'been a bit of a mix up with the order!'
'Big Style!' and 'Big Time!' as in 'We fell out BIG TIME last night!'
The ones generally levelled at recalcitrant children such as 'Yer doin' my 'ead in!' and 'You are SO grounded!' And then there is the staple vocabulary of Chavland such as 'Right?' 'Innit?' 'Jernoworramean?' 'Babe!' 'Sorted and 'Gutted!' or as they are pronounce here in Yorkshire with the glottal stop in between, 'Sor'ed!' and 'Gu'ed!' Then there are the corporate gems like 'Think outside the box!' and others. I also hate the expression 'Gobsmacked!'...and please don't ever call me 'MATE!'
...Chiao Babes!

In the large company I worked for for many years we had regular reviews of performance. When asked what we had done over a period of time I was often told, "Yes, but all of that is your day job". I was only ever paid for that day job!

'set to' as in 'the weather is set to get warmer', 'inflation is set to rise', 'traffic jams/pollution etc. are set to get worse'. No one sets the weather or the pollution, and though interest rates and prices are set, the rate of inflation isn't.
I also hate 'in terms of'

Once when interviewing job applicants, a young man told me, "And I'm very good at multitasking, and I'm a very thorough worker, and I do one thing at a time, and I do it right. . ."

I've found it better to accept people as they are, and accept their turns of phrase.

Getting cross about such things doesn't help anyone.

I agree with Ed. Complaining about such things turns one into a windbag at best. I think it is usually a sign of growing older and getting cranky at little things. Don't worry about it! If we get "bent out of shape" at phrases, then we might as well stay home all day and do crossword puzzles.

Enjoy the phrases, as cliched and out of place as they might be.

Don't watch much football but I wonder why, in the last few years the term 'scoreline' has been introduced. It's the SCORE for God's sake!! Also, whats this 'sea-change'stuff, as in 'there's been a sea-change in opinion'. Didn't know the sea changed that much, at least the last time I looked at it at Whitby it hadn't!

I can't stand the term "best practice" that has crept into "business-speak". The two categories: "bad practice" and "good practice" are all that is necessary. What I don't like is the inevitable assumption on the part of the person using the term "best practice" that they (and their judgements) are infinitely superior to anyone else.

What makes it especially annoying, when I hear the term on TV or radio interviews, is if they drop the consonant and say: "bes practice". Bad speech as well as bad vocabulary !

I can't stand dropped consonants in *any* kind of phrase.

"Best practice" makes you feel uncomfortable?   You hate the words "talk to the hand" yet you feel comfortable with using cliched words "feck" and "arse"?
