When I hear "it is what it is" I want to embark on a murderous rampage.

I once worked with a jerk named Robert. He woud get indignant if you called him "Bob". So I'd call him Bob all the time.
He was irresponsible and lazy. Once, when he didn't show up and the boss got angry, another co-worker said:
"That's how he is. What can I say? Robert is Robert."

I said something like: "Oh really? I thought Robert was Arthur, you moron."

"It is what it is." What a defeatist saying. It means, "Don't bother trying."

ETA: I see I'm not the only one.

Another phrase that drives me over the brink of reason and makes me want to destroy the one saying it is:

"I love me some..."

I just heard some sissy on TV say:

"Our guest will be Taylor Swift. Love me some Taylor".

Death by hanging!!!

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

I blame Jackie Gleason.

What a great idea for a thread.

I use two words that drive my wife insane.

Dollop is the first word that she hates.

And my personal favorite........ Nostril. Lol. I just always trip on nostril. There is no other word like it.. It makes me laugh just to say it.



I personally have a general disdain of anything new and trendy.. My current made-up, shouldn't pass for language word is " up-cycling". I just want to collapse people's windpipes when they use this or similar terms.

Fun thread.

Yeah, it is a love/hate thing.

I picked it up when I was in Alaska,
and for some reason it just stuck with me.

A guy we hired a few weeks ago said it one day and I had to stop and comment because around here,
no one says it but me...lol

"Are you down?" Am I down where?

"What say you?" Seriously, this does not make you sound intelligent, just very pretentious.

"I am a student of ..." Again, pretentious.

Also, when people say "WTF" or "OMG." Seriously, are you so lazy you cannot say the actual words?

a reply to: Skid Mark

that reminds me - people misusing the word decimate. The original definition was to kill one in ten or destroy one in ten. Now even the standard English dictionaries are using meanings that have become common such as to completely destroy or damage by a large amount. Sorry, I know that has really nothing to do with decadence but it triggered that word for me.

Me too, I'm a huge fan of The Honeymooners (classic and lost episodes) and Life of Riley.

"Haters" and "Haters gonna hate". Each time I've seen it used, it's by some younger person with a page full of photos of them. Yes, haters gonna hate if you're so self centered that you think any form of criticism is a huge royal insult. Ugh...

"Chakras", I mean surely if there were some sort of energy meridians and nodes within the body, there would be some some sign of a specialized organ?

... and "Reiki", I mean, how do you even pronounce it? Why doesn't everyone's BS meter go into overdrive when ever it is mentioned?

It's even less likely than Aromatherapy being an accepted 'medical' qualification. (I can just imagine; "He's bleeding out, we need a doctor or he'll die" and someone steps up and says "It's OK, I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and I have some lavender and patchouli oil"!

The use of the word "# Hashtag". IDK why it annoys me so much but it does.

What I am hearing is people talking about how others annoy them.

Free speech annoys the hell out of me too. If I had my way I'd have a roving gang of wordsmiths crush anyone who uses their privilege, note privilege not right, to free speech. Just...crush...them...

Anyone who begins a discussion with "Basically..... I'll cut them off by pointing behind them and exclaiming something like " Hey! Isn't that William Shatner!" then as they look I make my exit.

'Shot dead.' It sounds like something a five year old would say.

Commercials that overuse the word 'technology.' A Snuggie, a ShamWow, OxiClean, etc. is just not what I consider 'technology.'
