Listography - Top 5 Phrases That Drive Me Crazy
This weeks Listography is Top 5 Phrases That Drive Me Crazy.
Why? I hear you ask.
Well partly because I am a bit pissed off today and partly because the very lovely Anne from Domesblissity gave out to me last week for doing another blogger \ techy type one. Well that told me. (Note that she still joined in though...)
So without further ado (which in itself could be one), here we go (another?)
1. 'At the end of the day.'
At the end of the day could you just stop saying 'at the end of the day'?
2. 'There's nothing worse than *insert something mildly annoying*'
'There's nothing worse than running out of sprinkles when you're making cupcakes', 'There's nothing worse than setting the Sky+ to record something and it doesn't work'. Really? How about your house burning down and you discover you forgot to update the insurance?* Slightly worse?
*This didn't happen to me btw. Although I may have 'Update House Insurance' on my to do list.
3. 'Just bear with me a moment.'
Firstly - because I use to say it about a million times a day when I worked in a call centre and secondly, and I kid you not, my husband said this to me the other week. Seriously. And we're still married.
4. 'I'm not being funny but....'
I had a work colleague who said this constantly - 'I'm not being funny but I never liked her', 'I'm not being funny but I don't think he knows what he's doing'. 'I'm not being funny but she'd be better off in the post room' WTF? No, you're not being funny, you are being mean. So shut it.
5. 'He started It'
So that's my lovely, hate-filled list for the week. Strangely cathartic I must say. In fact I feel better already, and at the end of the day that's what's important isn't it? Because there's nothing worse than waking up in a bad mood and having it hanging over you all day is there?
Now it's your turn. You'll be surprised at how many you have once you get started.
