    "Take care of yourself." It implies to me that you won't see that person ever again. I don't like "How's it hanging?" either.
  • Options
    I don't care for "How are you?" or any other forced greeting. Do you really care how am I if you are shouting it as you walk past me down the hall? No. Just say Hey and leave it be.

    "Have a safe flight." I'm neither God nor the pilot so it's really out of my hands.

    How goes it, P2?  How.Goes.It.Any plans for the weekend?How was your weekend?Whatcha' got going this weekend?Clearly, I am bothered by questions about my weekend.  It isn't sincere.  More often than not the person asking, doesn't give two shiits.

    Ever since I did a show with the phrase "be safe" in it and we giggled at the euphamism it is, I can't say it seriously.  Which I know isn't what you asked, but oh well. I also HATE when people say "hi, how are you?" in passing when you clearly don't have time to answer.  Just say "hi" and be done with it because I know you really don't care.

    "At the end of the day" - this is WAY overused and stupid"You go, girl!" or "Hey, girl!" or anything with "girl" at the end of it
  • Options
    "Whatchu"I even hate this phrase in songs.  Hate it."I'm here for you..."  Said mostly in terrible dating shows on VH-1, but really, any dating show.
  • Options
    When people tell me to smile.  HATE that.  Maybe I'm happy and just don't want to smile all the time.  Or maybe I'm not happy, so why should I be smiling?  Seriously, who has a smile plastered on their face all the time anyway?  Fake people, that's who.

    My old boss used all of these on a daily basis... "It is what it is" "That's how I roll" "Rockstar" "And at the end of the day..."
  • Options
    cocoreo, I'm guilty of the smile thing, but only to my students. They just act so grumpy and like they hate the world, it's depressing to be around 80 kids that look like they're going to go jump off a bridge.

    That's okay, whit.  Honestly, when people say it, I probably look pretty grumpy.
  • Options
    "How's married life treatin' ya?" "...but having said that..." "I don't care, whatever you want is fine" "Can I ask you a question?"
  • Options
    "That's so true.""Fo shizzle, my nizzle," or any variation of this. It's 2009.

    "That's a whole nother story." Nother is not a word or type of story.

    "all on the same page"
  • Options
    Actions speak louder than words. Maybe I just heard that too often growing up but I hate that.
  • Options
    "whatnot" I also hate the "hey, how are you?" when clearly, they don't care and don't want to hear your answer.  I'm okay with just saying "hi" or even just a smile, really.And, while not a question or a phrase (but just something that is really getting on my nerves lately), the unsolicited wedding planning advice --- I didn't ask you how should I plan my wedding, I haven't complained about the planning, and I haven't even given you details.  Therefore, I am not asking for advice/help/suggestions.  Please stop, it's really annoying.  If I want your 2 cents I'll ask for it, I promise.Granted I also find it annoying when people try and "fix" a problem I have vented about --- I was doing just that, venting, not asking for your ideas on how to make it better.  There is a BIG difference.Thank you, I needed to get that out!

    "it is what it is"  I almost cried when I read that kate#sI had a prof that would answer almost all of your questions with that response.   Just imangine it being said by the character on The Princess Bride that always says "inconceivable"
    Image and video hosting by TinyPic Love is like infinity: You can't have more or less infinity, and you can't compare two things to see if they're "equally infinite." Infinity just is, and that's the way I think love is, too.
