But, whenever I hear them I have an almost uncontrollable desire to slap someone silly. So, it is possibly in your best interest, should we ever meet in real life (as opposed to the imaginary world of cyberspace) it would behoove you to prevent them from floating out of your mouth.
I can not abide redundancies…..for example. “exact same”. um, excuse me but exact and same are synonyms…do NOT put them together in a sentence. This is where an adverb would be used. EXACTLY the same………..see the difference?
I really do not like being the grammar police….it was thrust upon me during a summer substitute teaching job….I accepted the danged job as a temp gig and the stupid grammar police designation just stuck. NOW, it drives me crazy to hear (or read) some of the things people write or say.
It drives me a little crazy to see the phrase “keep calm and” placed with another phrase that has nothing to do with remaining calm.
what the hell is that anyway? It means absolutely NOTHING!
And the words “cray-cray” ……just say CRAZY! Do you have any idea how much of a moron you sound saying “cray-cray”? it isn’t cute…it is moronic.
The one that always annoyed me the most is “Boys will be boys”…sort of a stupid excuse for bad behavior.
No they won’t just be boys! Teach those horrid little brats to behave themselves instead of giving them permission because they own a penis!
And why do people always seem to use the word “honestly” right before they lie to you?
Do they think YOU think they are lying every time they fail to use the word Honestly? No? Then why say it? Use “Frankly” or “Bob-ly” for all I care, just stop saying “honestly!”
“Whatever”……that is not a sentence. It is a word. It is said to denote you don’t give a damn about whatever the subject is, but you have no idea how to constructively state that you don’t. What a moronic thing to say. It makes you look like a total idiot.
“It’s all about me”…ummmmm, no. No it isn’t. NOTHING is all about anyone you selfish cretin.
George just wandered in and said “the room is steaming”….which an annoying phrase for “stop bitching, Suze”.
I just want to slap him now.
