Are there sayings or phrases that you hear all the time that drive you crazy? Phrases that are overused, or ridiculous, or add no value?
Well, I have a few (not that you asked) and would be interested in hearing about yours.
I hear most of these on TV shows but also from work.
1. But, at the end of the day............
Drive me insane when it is said over and over and over in meetings at work. Don't know why. Is it just me?
2. In my wheelhouse......
Bobby Flay says this all time on his cooking shows. People at work say it. Don't care where your wheel or house is.
3. That dog don't hunt......
I'm the only woman in my office and the guys I work with are a bunch hunting and fishing fools.
4. Oh, it's like a hotel room.
Hear this on HGTV -- meant as a compliment. Personally, I find hotel rooms cold and impersonal. If you want your house to look like a bland
hotel room, that's up to you. But, it is never anything that looks good to me.
5. I want to look like Beyonce.
Hear this on wedding dress shows. Seriously? This is your standard? You want to look trashy on your wedding -- like you're going to do a lap dance
at any moment?
6. Any phrase that contains the name Kardashian
I am deeply embarrased that we have raised an entire generation of girls to be bimbo trophy wives. And, that girls seem to be okay with that.
Seriously, if you are a parent, please require more of your daughters. Don't raise them to have a pole in their future.
So, that's mine. Maybe I'm just running out of hormones and patience but "little" things like these are starting to bug me more and more.
So, is it just me, or do you have phrases that set you off?
