And exactly why they use them, of course.

Meaningless words reminds me of a competition the Observer ran for someone to come up with the most meaningless proverb. The winner was "he who digs deepest, deepest digs".

Or Alfred E Neumann's description in Mad magazine, Alfed E. Neumann, who had one grunch but the egg-plant over there Smile

These incompetents seem to have but one skill in which they excel - knowing how to survive when they're caught out!

Fantastic!
Can't people think of other adjectives/adverbs? My dictionary defines "fantastic" as ""fanciful: not real; capricious; whimsical; wild; foolish; foppish."

Yes, I hate that. I tend to use, "like, awesome, dude."

"we'd like to use your photos but we don't pay for photos" Especially when the paper rings you and asks for the photos.

or,

"I gave them a photo because they're a charity"

I feel a little better now - Thank you.

This thread is so cool, awesome even. Like man, I really dig it. I've learnt lots of lessons from it and hold my hand up (please miss, can I go to the toilet?) to lots of these heinous criimes. Now I know what I can't say, but haven't spoken since through it for fear of offending people Wink
I just thought I'd run this up the flagpole and see who salutes it - meanwhile I'll take a comfort break and then probably get in some quality time with the little woman.

We need to turn a corner, we have come to a cross roads, yes! we are turning a corner, the road is straight from here, we have definitely turned a corner. History will show this was when we turned the corner. There is no turning back, once the corner is reached....... should i go one ? Perhaps the answer is ...... just round the corner !!

And now we play the waiting game...

So what game is that, then? And how is it so totally different from just sitting around until something happens?

Use of "of" rather than "have" really irritates me! Tongue
