Annoying Phrases

Recommended Posts

A phrase I hear regularly on t.v. is when some programmes such as Breakfast Time come to an end they say

"We''ll see you tomorrow"

They won't becasue they can't see the viewers!

Have you any phrases that annoy you?

After being in a queue an assistance says, " Thank you for waiting, " and as you're trying to get on with a meal in a restaurant, the constant question, "Is everything alright"? At home I find it annoying when, instead of the wife saying, " Please pass me the (whatever)", she says, "Is the (whatever) over there?" or " Would you like to pass me the (whatever)"?

Yes, I've noticed waitresses always seem to ask me when I've got a mouthful of hot food.

Not a phrase but theres an annoying trend amongst younger yuppie types of answering a question starting with the word "So" followed by short pause .

Eg " How does this thing work?"

"So ....you put that there etc"

Its an unneccessary word ! So there !

So the nurse says "just a scratch" as she prepares to stick the needle in your arm, then an almighty pain like a red hot blunt dart is forced in to the arm.

Not a phrase but a word - the use of the word 'impact' instead of 'affect' or 'effect'.

It seems to be an example of managementspeak that's spread to all the news media and now even real people are saying it.

Shop assistants (or people in a similar position) who finish the transaction with "Enjoy".

Well said Cliff Ton, I hate that word when used like that. In Wetherspoons recently when the young wench brought the snap to the table her last word was "Enjoy" I comment to the dismay of Mrs Catfan was "I bleeding hope so" !

When in management meetings the speaker say's "So going forward" as a business surely we would'nt be "going backwards" or would we?

"There are no such things as problems, only challenges" --- "We worked hard but we played hard" and "He doesn't suffer fools gladly", which, as someone once remarked to me, is another excuse for being bloody rude!

Last time I had a needle the nurse said, "Little prick". I thought, how does she know that? Does she know my ex?
