Quote: "turn round"....
why do people "turn round" and say things?
must be a strange interaction - you're talking to someone and they turn round to say something...
Yes was going to say that one .. but one that really grips me is when I haer a politician saying that they want to be very 'clear' about this or that and then they inevitably say something very unclear, evasive and avoiding anything even close to a comittal or direct 'clear' answer ... oh oh .. and when someone says (usually in a scouse or other regional accent) .. "I love the bones of him" .. not sure why, I just hate it. Oh oh and 'babby' instead of 'baby' .. oh you've started me off now !!!!

Jeremy Kyle-isms (one of the dubious pleasures of being recently retired..)
"step up to the mark/plate.."
You're having nothing to do with my kid..youre only a "sperm donor".
OK, enough of him..
"a bit of a learning curve/steep learning curve"..
like you need to learn algebra to appreciate how your learning is going...
OK, this post needs a bit of CLOSURE
Another JK-ism: "I would walk 200 miles to see a child of mine!"
The phrase 'of an evening' has become commonplace over the last few years and for some reason really bugs me. Why 'of an evening'? It means nothing. Why not 'in the evening'?
If "...of an evening" has become commonplace then it's a 'comeback' I'm afraid. Just a quaint old phrase that should have fallen out of use.
My own favourite is 'Suck it and See'
De dah bleeder amongst other`s that the wife still uses.
irritating for me, been married nearly 25 years and still don`t have a clue what`s she`s on about
Who needs those wimmin things to use strange phrases? I've known my wife for 22 years and even when she speaks English I sometimes can't keep up with what she's talking about.
For me the two worst words as opposed to phrases are "wow" and " fab". I went for a meal with my wife's work colleagues (she w as there as well!) recently. They are all college lecturers and everything was described as "fab" even if it was only fairly good. Plus, the remotest good thing was prefixed by "wow". I am getting a real complex my 2 yr old grandson drew half a dozen circles and they were fab - no they bxx well weren't ! I'm sick of the words.
Let's run it up the flag pole and see how many envelopes it can push outside the box...........
Doctors and nurses who state that they're just going to 'pop'
Pop you into bed
Pop this tablet in your mouth
Pop you on this bedpan
Pop this needle in you a**e
Pop this pacemaker in your chest
Pop my finger up you bottom
Pop this thermometer under your tongue [I've wiped it since I popped it up his bottom]
And so it goes on

Welcome to "Mans World."
It'll still be the same after 40 years.
How about: "and so and so turned round and said..."
LOL. Why do they always have to turn round and say something? Is that to distinguish turning round to speak from talking out of your backside, perhaps?
He/she just looked at me......
'Could you just sign/tick/check this for me', by anyone (usually female) with the most miniscule amount of authority.
Politicians are the past masters of the platitude. "Seeing the job through" is their current favourite.
