Every cliché uttered by some manager of a football team after a game, shut the feck up!

People who end a sentence with and that or even annat, and people who say something then end the sentence with, so...........,

yes, so? So what? Finish the bloody sentence then! GrRr!

General Election

Fed up with it already!

Nice Pic and Great Shot are a couple of expressions that are arguably over used....... Wink

I cringe when folk wrongly use the words already or period at the end of a sentance, such as "Come on, hurry up or we will be late, already" or " It was the most amazing thing I ever saw. Period."

Working for the Police and facing the public over the front desk, "Well what it is, yeh!" is the most used phrase when the lies are going to follow.

My usual reply to that is, "Well what it is yeh, is that you haven't got any insurance for your car!"

How many actually recognise themselves when they check back on these pages? I'm afraid I'm guilty of saying "absolutely" a lot of the time and punctuating my sentences with the word "so". I know I do it, I don't like doing it, but years of (generally un-noticed) habit is hard to break.

A great man I used to work for was on the phone one day to a very efficient person who politely asked him "...and can I have your name please?" to which he replied "you can if you like but what am I going to call myself when you've got it?" She didn't find it funny!

Why is it that when anyone tells you something they have to keep saying "does that make sense?" after every sentence!

I don't have a problem with occasional use of any of the above - it's when they are used ad nauseam they become annoying

For sure, I can tell you this, that I am guilty of re-using standard phrases, but in the fullness of time, and with consideration of how I break up my sentences, I am so set on not doing that again.

Do you know what I mean?

Well, there are a finite number of words/phrases available so it's impossible not to re-use them.

Most Americanisms... Awesome, Dude, be-atch (since we don't pronounce it like that anyway), guys (especially when half or more of the people being spoken to are girls), way something (cool, etc), & many more besides.

It's not that they're bad as such, it's just that British sound so stupid saying them. We don't even know what half of them mean, since they're American specific, like baseball or football terms (touching base!!?!).

Leave them in the movies, & stick with the language we've always had.

"To die for". What's the point? If you're dead it's no bleedin' good to you anyway!!
