Irritating phrases...................

I'm sick of the phrase "at the end of the day..." . IT is SO overused.

Any other phrases that irritate?

"I could care less" irritates me because it doesn't make sense.

The actual phrase is "I COULDN'T care less." I know this and English is my second language.

1. WHATEVER!
2. Using the work "LIKE" more than once in a sentence.
3. The thing of it is is this.....
4. Oh my Fu*king God

that's funny, I was just reading about this misunderstood phrase in a copywriting textbook. Yes, "I could care less" actually communicates the opposite of what is meant!

I find the phrase "anywho" to be annoying.

I get annoyed by too many adverbs.

"Dreams pass in time."

"This weapon is your life."

"The fear of loss is a path to the Dark Side."

"Hold me like you did by the lake on Naboo."

I hate how people are now using "myself" instead of "me." Example, "They gave the videos to Jim and myself." It's supposed to be "me and Jim," dammit! You only use the word "myself" when you actually do something to yourself!!! NOT when anything at all happens to you!!

You are so on target here - I don't mind this from a 14 year old but there's nothing worse than hearing it from a 30 or even 40 something year old
