I think this is local, but if you say something shocking, people go" Shut Up!"

Instead of "get out of town!" or "get outta here!"

The first time I heard it, I almost clocked my friend because I thought she was really telling me to shut up.

I think the one I hate more than any other is "It is what it is". I ABSOLUTELY, positively HATE that one!

First, it's hardly EVER what "it is".
Second, there are always three sides (or more) to every situation (what he said, what she said and the truth)
Third, it's not what "it is", it's what you make of it that matters.

I see it as the lazy, useless, pessimistic excuse that people use instead of going to the trouble of finding the truth or making something better. It's nothing but a cop-out.

Second on my list would be whatever "buzzwords" happen to be popular at any given time. I despise buzz words, they are for people who aren't capable of thinking for themselves.

examples: Holistic, synergy, face time, outside the box, best-practices, ergonomic

So, does that mean if someone's asking if you're pregnant, they can just say, "Gatorade?" ("Is it in you?")

I'd like to see a short film where people talk to each other using only brand names.

"And so it begins."

I'd like to knock the teeth out of the next brainless twit who says that.

Bit rich coming from a blithering idiot who propably could'nt find the next county over on a map-i actually cringed for this girl's sake-she makes most 5-year old kids in South Africa sound like theoretical physicists or neurosurgeons in comparison.My son is in grade 1,and in his school the passing grade is 80%-from 1st grade right through to grade 12.I've heard him mumble more intelligent phrases in his sleep,than this unfortunate girl is capable of.

When rappers refer to what they do as "rocking".

"What say you ATS?"

By far the single most annoying thing I see on ATS. Trying to sound all ubber intelligent/mysterious just makes one sound like a fool.
