Most annoying phrase right now?

Asked by Valhalla30 (317points) March 23rd, 2008

I am SO sick of hearing “It is what it is” (duh!) and “At the end of the day…”. What phrases currently annoy you?

@val we were on the same page with questions

peedub's avatar

thats so funny- hate that one too. Its such a cop-out. I’m not too fond of ‘at the end of the day…’

purephase's avatar

I’m tired of hearing about girl’s with “apple bottoms”.

peedub's avatar

or when someone refers to a female as a ‘diva’ for whatever reason

kevbo's avatar

“Craptacular” and “steaming dump” which seem to be ubiquitous on tech blogs.

“At this point in time:”

oneye1's avatar

ya when a guy calls his bride his old lady I hate that

Valhalla30's avatar

“Be that as it may” is annoying too!! “The powers that be…” UGH!

Valhalla30's avatar

OMG I also hate “My BAD” Ohhh gosh that is terrible nonsense!

Valhalla30's avatar

Talking “offline” about something. Irritating.

Valhalla30's avatar

When people feel the need to say the word “period” or “comma” “quote / end quote” while trying to express emphasis. Such as, “Fluther is the best website, period”. Arrrrgggghhhhh!

oneye1's avatar

off topic did you ask this to vent

Poser's avatar

I get physically ill at the sight of “LOL.”

Valhalla30's avatar

Oneye1, no I just keep thinking of them and the floodgates have opened! :)

I also dislike “same difference”.

oneye1's avatar

I was playing anyway I hate early bird gets the worm

peedub's avatar

when someone proclaims themself as a ‘foodie’

Valhalla30's avatar

Ewww I hate when people say “irregardless” instead of simply saying “regardless” and “conversate” instead of “converse”. “Orientate” rather than “orient”.

Valhalla30's avatar

Peedub, seriously?! That’s annoying!!

zombo's avatar

I hate “my bad”. It is so stupid.

oneye1's avatar

how about when poeple do the joey “how you douing” getting a bit old don’t you think

peedub's avatar

‘thats how I roll’ got on my nerves pretty fast

gailcalled's avatar

@Valhalla; I think, altho not being a Brit. myself, that “orientate” is used in the UK as we use “orient.” I learned this while listening to books-on-tape written and read by Brits.

Emilyy's avatar

I agree that calling things “ill” or “sick” makes me cringe.

peedub's avatar

yeah or if someone refers to one as ‘illin’ on someone

Valhalla30's avatar

Oneye, how about doing the “whooooaaaaa” from Joey on Blossom? See, I still do that….. >:) Gailcalled, Oh noooooooooooo! hehehe

oneye1's avatar

I never watched blossom I was talking about from friends

peedub's avatar

I think pop culture references from the 80s are ‘nooooooo problem’

peedub's avatar

Thats a lame alf reference

Valhalla30's avatar

I know which Joey you meant and yeah “how you doin’” is used up, but I think classic Joey Lawrence is acceptable. :D

peedub's avatar

inappropriately refering to a hobby as ‘a way of life’

teejay0514's avatar

I don’t know if ya’ll have heard this, but I hate it when people say “Real Talk” before they say something.

Valhalla30's avatar

Teejay, I have not heard that! That sounds silly!

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

I HATE hearing people say ”[yo] where you at?” It drives me absolutely insane, especially since my TEACHERS have started saying it recently.

Kay's avatar

When someone says something is “fierce” or “ferosh” !!! So annoying.

flip193's avatar

definitly ” FO SHO”

topserb96's avatar

i am so sick of hearing “j├Ąger bombs!”

joeysefika's avatar

‘First Thing First’ Well Obviously

susanc's avatar

I hate it when my son calls me and starts the conversation by demanding “what’s going on?”. Nothing’s going on. I was doing something nice and then HE INTERRUPTED ME>

peedub's avatar

Calling things institutions, like: ‘oh yeah, I know Peter Luger, its a Brooklyn institution.’

oneye1's avatar

how about “don’t taz me bro”

scamp's avatar

I hate it when someone says Imma instead of I’m going to. For example: Imma buy that new CD.

Ganzyman's avatar

One that really grates on me is when people reply with a really over emphasized and drawn out ‘Absoluuuutely!!’ I dont mind the bog standard and flat ‘Absolutely’ but not the overly dramatic one. A few years ago I first heard a couple of celebs say it on the radio, but now everyman and his saying it… YAK

figbash's avatar

* “Niiiiiice”
* “Worklife balance”
* “Existing in silos”

And, referring to anything and everything as “a journey.”

boffin's avatar

Becoming very annoying, very quickly….“Back in the day”....

judochop's avatar

I am hugely annoyed at all the Borat quotes people use. Yes I am guilty of the “very nice” thing but c’mon I hear that sh1t everywhere.

breedmitch's avatar

Right now on TV reaitly shows, somebody’s always “throwing somebody under the bus.” (meaning stabbed in the back) I can’t stand that phrase, and it’s becoming more frequent in useage. It reminds me of the safety films we were made to watch in elementary school where somebody really did get thrown under a bus.

Pachy's avatar

It’s all good
