I have a colleague who constantly misuses common phrases. It drives me up the wall. I used to correct her, but its all the gd time and there comes a point when you either have to zip it or you look like a real dick.
Today she was on fire, and no one else at work seems to notice. A few of her absolute favourites are:
- For all intensive purposes
- It's a mute point
- Flagging a dead horse
- Lets centre check that spreadsheet
I know it's harmless, but all the same....it's my irrational irritation. Anyone else feel itchy when someone does this? Any good ones to add?
