"Too much information."

"footwarmer"

It's not a phrase, but it annoys me just the same.


God, me too.




"to my ears" is another one. "This CD sounds great to my ears." But how does it sound to your nipples?

"...not in this lifetime, you jerk!"
Pretty women just don't seem to like me. I don't understand it.

"let me say this.."

just as someone (usually a politician) gives an answer about something they were asked about.

You were asked to comment.

You don't need to state "let me say this"

The interviewer was going to let you say it. They asked you the question.

GET IT???

"Second of all...."

"You know what I'm saying?"

"Whatever...."

It's "to my ears", not "to my ears"!

"To be honest, ..."

I hate this, even though I use it myself (usually when I'm lying, I notice).

That does not decrease the absolute suckage of the phrase.

"This CD sounds great" is sufficient.

"My bad"; not "I'm sorry," but "My bad."

A casual, dismissive sidestep around responsibility. A woefully unfortunate measure of our Teflon times.

"Oh -- was I a dispassionate, discourteous, ill-mannered asshole? My bad."

cool

"What all are you doin'?"

"You all are just too cute!"

"That's all the further I've gotten in my book."

"Awesome."

"Wicked."

"¿Qué pasa?" "Merci beaucoup" and "Excusez-moi" when spoken by persons who have no knowledge of the language beyond those overused phrases.

Same old, same old-----------------------------------------------------, such a boring trite statement and often said by people who live dull lives and are depress.

"I ain't tryin' to..."


As in, "Hell yeah, I wore a raincoat. I ain't tryin' to be a daddy yet."

"Excuse me!" when used to really mean "Get out of my way!"

It's "to my ears", not "to my ears"!


Jehannum is right. It's modest – and thus good – not to assume that one's subjective experience applies to everyone. Just an equivalent to "In my opinion...".

"For all intensive purposes... " is one I hate.
