"Brown bag meeting" - presumably a receptacle for all the bullsh!t.

"Gutted" - no you weren't. You were disappointed. If you had been 'gutted' you wouldn't still be alive to tell everyone about it.

"Gobsmacked" - the next person to say this will definitely get a smack in the gob. With my fist.

"Blown away" - what's wrong with amazed/astonished/very happy/excited?

Don't people learn adjectives these days??? Aaaaaaaaarggghhh!

"Go (insert name), go (insert name)", in a Jerry Springer style (or stylee, which is another cringe and punch inducer)

I can cope with that, it's "by close of play" that really bugs me when I'm working hard to meet a deadline. Just who are those that are playing? (OK, so it's from cricket, but that isn't a positive thing for me!)

All Americanism's do we not have minds of our own? do we have to follow these often ridiculous expressions. Very little good has ever come out of America,but plenty has gone in!!!

Brought used instead of bought ( e.g. "I've just brought a new camera" )

Note to Pete etc: Did you know when you add a " followed by a ) it assumes you mean a smilie.. not sure if you mean it to do this Smile

Have to agree with Pete. My teenage relatives use the word 'like' about 10 times in a sentence of 15 and, it always starts with OMG! Oh and the phrase 'Disrespecting me' makes my blood biol argh............

Wrong: Trying to convince someone to do something

Right: Trying to persuade someone to do something

Right: I'm convinced that I'm right about this and I could not be persuaded that I'm wrong Wink Wink

"Think, outside of the box"
"Blue Sky Thinking"
"Helicoptering"
"get our ducks in a line"
"singing of the same hymn sheet"
"run the idea up the flagpole see who salutes it"
"have a cerebral swim in our think tank"


Oh great - love those. I usually like to drop in at least 2 or 3 these in any conversation at work..just to watch people cringe. Makes the day fly by.
