Goner Message Board / ???? / Catch phrases or "cute" words that make me want to kill...

ANYWHO...

I hate it when people say anywho. It drives me nuts. Nobody thinks it's cute or funny. Just stop it.
Posted: Jul 23, 2007 11:33 pm
 
I hate...
"EYE....KNOOWWWW"
Long and drawn out. Like they knowwww everything!

I also hate hate hate "my bad". Fercrissakes, just say "I'm sorry" like a real person. You know, I used to have a boyfriend who'd always say "yeah, I'm an asshole, I know I'm an asshole" in a sarcastic way and that drove me crazy. Like he was above everything because he was an asshole and that trumped any tiny bit of criticism aimed his way.
Somehow "my bad" reminds me of that.

"EYE....KNOOWWWW"

That's totally a Friends reference....oh shit, should I admit that? My bad.

you're already skating on thin ice, millionaire, with that Harry Pooter/penis crack. Shut it!
Did y'all have a good time at Harlan? Sorry I missed y'all. Love to the misses. I mean missus.

PS...I've never seen Friends. Glad to know the origin of that horrible phrase.

i HATE it when people say "god bless you"
sorry, i just do
Posted: Jul 23, 2007 11:51 pm
 
Or when people sign their letters..."Blessings" or "Have a blessed day".
Anything that has to do with god blessing you.
(I'm an atheist.)

"Back in the day" makes me want to lock & load.
Posted: Jul 23, 2007 11:59 pm
 
i say bless you, i leave god out of it. i'll leave it up to whomever to determine who they want blessing them.

skating on thin ice, millionaire, with that Harry Pooter/penis crack.

It wasn't a "crack", it was a suggestion for a porno version of said movie, but I digress...

We had a blast at the Harlan show - were you there?? Sorry we missed
you.
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 12:12 am
 
I can't even begin to imagine the porno version of the movie. That's wrong, just wrong. And don't ever say that again!
I wasn't there, but the main reason I regretted not being there was to see Windy (and you, of course). When I was weighing "to go, or not to go" that was number one in the "to go" column. Glad y'all had a good time. See you in September!

"Back in the day" makes me want to lock & load.

I was just going to say this. Even though I use it all the time. I say "sweet", too.
If anything, I live to kick my self-esteem in the nuts.
All the time.

"Absolutely," as an over-used generic term of agreement. The other day on the radio this guy was interviewing a woman from some charity, and I swear she began every single one of her responses with "absolutely."

I hate the word stunning as when used on ebay - STUNNING SEX PISTOLS RARE CD. And I hate \"Your business means a lot to us\" on US gas station forecourts.

Referring to staff/employees as "team members" "Team, you say, boss? So when do I get a cut of the profits?" Yeah, I thought so.
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 1:15 am
 
Where I work, many people use the phrase "bandwidth" to measure the amount of "free time" somebody has to work on a project. "Hey Mark, do you have the bandwidth to handle [insert pointless project here]?" I HATE being asked if I have the TIME to do something in that way. HATE it. I am not a computer - end communication...[BEEP].

and connected to finnark's gripe:

Managers saying "MY team" or "MY staff". And they wonder why adults like to switch jobs so much these days with morale busters like that shit.

"Halcyon days." I only see it in record reviews, bands' one-sheets, and music press, but I cringe every time.

"bandwidth"

God this was the worst.

That and "ping", as in "Ping Davis when he gets back in", as in to "reach out for an answer of some sort, via phone, e-mail, IM, or visit".
That's not what ping means.

that's where "gesundheit" is supposed to be used.

That's what I say. No one's complained yet.

I hate that the meaning of the word 'grow' has been altered. ex., "Grow your business."

I'll think of some more I'm sure. People say things all the time that raise my hackles.

It's because it's a retarded phrase that normal people don't use in regular speech.

But you've reminded me: add to the list "yr." instead of "your" or "you're." What is this, Forced Exposure circa 1986?

why would an MB abbreviation get you mad?
"why is I like yr sister" something wrong, anymore than "I live on Main St."

Though I will agree that when someone responds to a simple "how are you?" with "blessed" I want to kill them to find out how blessed they truely are.

BFF.

I completely lost interest in my fairly-attractive young female neighbor when she used that expression (meaning Best Friend Forever) a few times while we we're getting to know each other recently. I don't even think pre-pubescent girls should be allowed to utter that one.

The "Blessed" thing kills me a bit too.

What about gettting "on the same page." I had a paticularly hated ex-mgr who used to love saying that.

Carlin has a great bit about these sort of things. . ."and I will not identify with you, and you will not relate to me."

I particularly hate sports metaphors in the workplace.

"He really stepped up to the plate on that one!"
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 2:52 pm
 
"He really stepped up to the plate on that one!"

And subsequently he probably "knocked it out of the park."

there's no I in team!!!

and also re work-place language abuse: boxing metaphors are also lame, inappropriate (wall street managers worry about concussions and bitten-off ears??!!), and usually misused

Perfectly acceptable when used in basketball. I don't know about other team sports since I only play basketball.

I say bless you to everyone who sneezes; it's friendly and it makes me happy to do it.

And THRILLED I say SWEET! (and so many other things on your silly list) that apparently irk you grumpy old farts.

absolutely and sweet; we need to push the envelope as we start to think outside the box as a team of old farts so that when we step up to the plate we will be on the same page as we were in our halcyon days

god bless. god bless tiny tim. god bless us all.

I have no idea why, it just bugs me. I didn't know we had to rationalize this shit.

Onto workplace annoyances, one that gets tossed around at my job lately is "ownership" of a project. As in "Moving forward, Larry is going to own the site re-design. Everybody report to him on that."

This thread is pissing me off!!! Anyone who worked for a dot.com/tech company up until a few years ago is well versed in crappy buzzwords like robust, backbone, platform, streamline, bandwidth, etc. Also, blackfolk words when appropriated by both whitey and blacky (when it's parroted so many times that it is no longer clever). Isn't the whole basis of this culture freestylin' creativity? Then why do I still hear "talk to the hand" or "kick him to the curb" level crappers repeated endlessly? Make up your own catchphrases and stop using them when you start hearing 'em back!

Also, anything from a popular movie. It probably wasn't even that funny when you heard it once coming from a professional actor/comedian! You suck!!!!

speaking of that, are you excited for the movie? I'm worried that it will be a complete let down - like that last 7 or 8 seasons have been.

The fact that it's coming out on my birthday probably has me more excited than I would be otherwise. I've read a couple early reviews that sound pretty good.

"bless you"-- I hate the obligation to thank someone for noticing that you sneezed. I prefer "salud" or "Gross" if I think I am expected to say something at someone elses sneeze but I really could give a fuck. From now on every time I fart I want everyone to say "Norm!"
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 11:18 pm
 
"hella"

Very tough to break if you are from California. I still like it fine, fortunately, because it will pop out every now and then...

bless you

I had a friend, who, in an attempt to be a smart-ass and show people how anti-theist he was, would say, "I acknowledge that you have sneezed, and I am sorry". Cracked me up, actually.

"hey you..."
though I'll admit I have a hate/love relationship with this one. Out of the right mouth and you'll melt. Said by anyone other than the one you want to say it, and in that perfect way you want it to sound, well, it sounds just horribly unctious and stupid.

When I was a counter bitch at Leonard's BBQ back in high school, our manager would say "type thing" at the end of every sentence. As in, "Mark, I need you to empty this trash can ... type thing." Or "The jumbo sandwich gets 6 ounces of pork ... type thing."

Hahaha. I've never heard that one, but maybe that's because I don't fucking ever ask faggots how they are.

BUT, faggots ask me how I am all the time. I'm gonna be throwin "blessed"s out all week now.
