We should all chillax, and let language have its flavor, irragardless of what people like. I could care less if the lauguage police have issues, it's six of one, half a dozen of the other.

But I digress, I could of been more patient. Anyway, can I help whoever's next? Just sayin'. Ah well, answer me back if you want.

(LOL)

"typically"

"actually"

i.e.:

What, typically, would you ask for such an automobile?

We don't bargain, actually.

Everytime I hear either word I cringe and my estimation of the user lowers another notch.

All told. All told, this will be that label's 165th release. (Yes, I'd say that pretty much "told" us!)

(Should be: All tolled. It means when everything is added up -- "tolled" up, as it were.)

Tow the line. You'd better tow the line,from now on. (Yes, tie that line onto your trailer hitch and tow it the hell out of here!).

(Should be: Toe the line. It means,figuratively, to obey the rules/follow the letter of the law. It's a disciplinary phrase that literally means put your toes on a line and do not cross it.)

A while back a friend of mine would say this at least 20 times a day:


"Been there, done that"



But hearing it in his East Indian accent always brought a smile to my face.

"Same ol, Same ol"

"...at this point in time..."

I utterly loathe that phrase. One can boil those five words down into one. "Now."

Somewhere, I read that this noxious sequence was originally uttered by Alexander Haig. Whether or not he did, I don't know, but one of the most twisted things he ever said was that someone else's proposal was "Awash with Malthusian prognostications".

If he could come up with that, I wouldn't be at all surprised about "...at this point in time".

"That's what she said!"

(as a comeback line for such comments as "It's HUGE!", "Gosh! It's hot!" "You sure took a long time!")

I always liked

"When push comes to shove"

That one can stay for a while longer.

In the big company I work for, they use buzz words and phrases heavily, and every year there's a slew of new ones. This year, when talking about initiatives or projects, they use the term "execute crisply". What is it, a friggin' cracker? Last year the buzz word was "robust", as in "a more robust work environment". Robust is fine for cheese, but for disability insurance????

Thats so gay, I hate that one so much, very derogatory toward gay people. What is means is gay = stupid

I'm not a fan of this phrase either. I'm not one to get easily offended by much of anything, but I do see the damage frivolously used phrases like this lead to. Someone on here stated that people who use this phrase aren't necessarily referring to homosexuality, but they most certainly are, it's just indirect. When punks are saying "that's so gay", they're saying "that's weird" or "that's f**cked up", or "that's dumb". Simple translation, gay = weird, dumb and f**cked up". It's the same idea as when people say "that's retarded". The intent is mild and not really acidic, but it still doesn't send a good message, especially when 10-year olds say it and have no clue what they're really saying.

I detest, "you're all set".

Usually used by those who check you in or out of hotels, rental cars, and the like. Instead of "thank you". Beyotches!

"pushing the envelope"

Where did that phrase come from?

I loathe it when people say "good times."

For movie trailers it would be the infamous:

"In a world..."

For movies and TV shows it would be:

"Let's do it."

I think this was first "popularized" during the Watergate scandal.

Oh. And I really hate this one:

"It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!"

"Don't go there!"

"Working my last nerve."

(Geez. Where do they all come from? I hate to admit it...I used these two phrases constantly a long time ago...)
