Verbal pause drives me nuts:

"you know" ... NO I DON 'T KNOW!

"um" ... Um - Um - Um - get a recorder and try to listen to yourself say um after every sentence!

I've always heard it as "take it with a grain of salt".

I absolutely abhor:

food for thought
couch potato
tickle the ivories
anything with the word soak in it
on the same page
think outside the box - sick of it
shut up - too rude
closure - sounds callously dismissive
I don't like baby bump either.

I hate it when some pompous type says, "s/he / they have lives" (like you don't).

I hate WTF - I am sick of, BEYOND sick of the f word
I don't like SOL - what's excrement got to do with it? Just say SADLY out of luck. That makes sense!

I think some slang carries over from the past century and has become a permanent part of our language. Newer urban hip blurbs that spill over from today's pop culture are oratory garbage equivalent to litter in news reports, sitcoms, everyday conversation and even blurted out by the POTUS. Think of the colloquialisms you have heard since you were born as were used by your parents and everyone else of their generation. Think back on the ones used by your grandparents or great grandparents - those are classics that should be revived to bring some sanity to our present society.

BeatleBangs1964:

"anything with the word soak in it". Would you mind to elaborate? I don't get it.

There is only one I can think of off hand:

Oh snap!

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 12, 2012 1:12:31 PM PDT
do you live in NC by any chance....LOL. I seen a lot of folks that say them sayin's around here.

I agree. Most young people are not familiar with these all tried and true sayings, so they are brand new to them and they add so much to a story.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 12, 2012 2:38:47 PM PDT
I hate that. It adds nothing to any conversation or story. Just stupid. There are so many beautiful words and even angry words that express confusion, why mess with it. It's not even shocking anymore.

Became overused quickly.

HAHA Being networking litterate, my response to "ping me" would be, "What TTL do you want on that sync packet?"

"Going forward"... (often used by financial advisors when they want you to overlook their previous lousy advice).

MK Hill says:
"That being said" is a run-on phrase and should be shortened to "That said". Do people not attend school any longer? I thought it to be mandatory in the USA since education is public and free. I remember grammar being an important part of elementary school as I struggled with some of it. I overcame that block when in HS and on into university. I take for granted grading has been eliminated; if a student couldn't earn passing grades when I was in elementary school that student was held back. Does that occur these days or are all students merely passed along to keep school administrators/government sated?

MK Hill says:
We're pregnant is something I could never grasp. We means one or more. How can a man say that and mean it? I think it has something to do with the fact men are becoming metrosexual. Do women hate masculine guys who act like men? Shaving one's face is bad enough but, why do guys shave their bodies of hair? Being clean is one thing but let's keep it real, guys. We are men; act like it.
