i love this list from they might be giants of annoying popular catchphrases that are not permitted to be spoken within the band. some of my favorites (i.e. least favorites):
don’t go there
it’s all good
it is what it is
i'd add to this "my bad." i'm sure there are more, just can't think of them at the moment.
Count me in on "It is what it is"!! Every time I hear that, I want to strangle someone! Preferably the person saying it.
I hate any inappropriate comparisons to Nazis or Hitler. I also
ha! great list. i want to post it on my fridge.
how about "true, that" ugh.
i can't believe i didn't think of "true that"! HATE it. and yes, david, i'm really tired of "(blank) nazi."
oh my god, i am going to adopt this as my personal list! there are just so many awful expressions in the world (e.g. "playing the whatever card.)
how about in german?? any annoying expressions?
i know i am SO HORRIBLE AND MEAN, but basically anything distinctively schwäbisch annoys the hell out of me.
i find that so funny, since i wouldn't know schwäbisch if it bit me on the butt.
I mostly underscore the misuse of "literally." Once a story on NPR said someone was "literally in the hands of god."
I'd also add "not on my radar screen."
YES. both of those, YES.
