    Oh and "Its certainly an interesting time".

    Interesting? Really?

    Yea, why wouldn't it be interesting? :/

    "In my opinion".

    We know it's your opinion because you're the one who's saying it.

    Every time someone says "bear with me" I want to kill them.

    Also "addicting". NO, FUCKING AMERICAN. The word you are looking for is "addictive".

    IMHO bugs me. And as mentioned above ^, addicting angers me somewhat.

    Oh, I thought of another one. "Off of", as in "That bloke off of the telly" or "I got the recipe off of a cereal packet". I think it's another American thing although I think Mean Machines went through a phase of using it in the early 90s. Another forum I post on regularly has a largely US-based population and I see "off of" used a lot, and it always makes me want to have a go at the poster.

    Anyone who uses "I was like..." in place of "I said..."

    I think a lot of people would die if this phrase killed people.

    You mean: I was like and then she was like, so I was like totally you know I was actually like totally chillax.

    Not an annoying phrase but I fucking hate it when people play music out loud from their mobiles.

    Fortunately my new tactic seems far more effective than just asking them to make a fool out of themselves.

    More of a MSN/online stuff thing, but people who use "tbh" like it's bloody punctuation at the end of sentences where it's really not required.

    Sample: "I had a really great day tbh" or "I think they're great tbh"

    Really? Does that mean I should assume the person to potentially be lying if they don't use a stupid abbreviation at the end of sentences? There's no need for it at all.

    "Positive thinking"
    "Positive mental attitude"
    "Solution orientated"

    The list goes on. It's like hearing a marketing texbook speaking out loud.

    "Like... you know Like... I er... Like... to see about Like... he's cute! ... Like..."

    Just when people take a while to say something basic or really short. But I suppose that makes me impatient as well, most likely a result of growing up and living in London.

    "Get in there!"

    No, be quiet. I used to hate "literally" (but actually figuratively) as well, but I'm just used to it now.

    "Don't go there."

    I heard a post-menopausal radio presenter say it in the car and nearly kicked the window out.

    "SKU" if the person saying it is not working in retail, "burglarize" (for fuck's sake america), "bare" as a chav-style intensifier, "fail" as a noun, and yes ANYTHING from portal. Jesus Christ.
  • Deleted user 21 September 2008 17:30:12
    This SKU of a cake is bare fail. I hope someone burglarizes it.

    "Like" isn't that bad. When you're a college student you learn to embrace the word "like", and abuse it like a cheap dirty whore.
