"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!

is this another grumpy old men thread?
"Go (insert name), go (insert name)", in a Jerry Springer style (or stylee, which is another cringe and punch inducer)
Grrr "at the end of the day"
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!)
"Everythink" instead of everything, Cool,why has it been in the 'fridge? "and stuff" what stuff,be more specific. and of course the all time favourite Fink and Fort, Its think an thought for goodness sake.
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!!!
Quote: a bottle of wine for the wife.
Sounds like a good swap
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
Quote: This thread is a bit like 'Grumpy Old Man'... LOL
......and the rest of the site isn't????
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
Sheeesh is it national sad old farts day?
Just because you aint down with the kids, why the need to disrespect the way they talk. init?
"Think, outside of the box"
"Blue Sky Thinking"
"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.
OMG lobsterboy, that's just, like, totally random.
Yeah - my bad.
