Oh my God, my boss uses this EVERY TIME we talk. It drives me batty.

I'll call you next week to touch base.
I'll email you soon to touch base.
Shoot me an email to touch base.

I'm not a fan of "so to speak".

Example: I want you to create an excel spreadsheet that could be kinda like an employee guide, so to speak.

Totally unnecessary!

Per se. This term is almost never used in its proper sense, and people that utilize it tend to think that it automatically makes them an intellectual.

I hate the phrase "Not so much." Wow that makes me want to punch people in the face.

And also, around where I live, people end their sentence with "You know what I mean?" ALL THE TIME! I just want to go, "NO! I really don't! Please explain, even though you just did!"

(Wow you've got me going now.) The saying "It's always in the last place you look" kills me. Well, NO DUH IT IS! Once I've found it, why would I keep looking!?


But if you're asking what word just makes me laugh the second I hear it, then that would probably be the word "raw" when my friend says it. He'll just be like "Wow. (Insert name of historical figure) is raw!" And I'll crack up. There are probably a lot more. I just can't think today.

Another one.

F'sho.

Especially when it's a white guy saying it.
