Jargon I wish would take a break:

"At the end of the day"

"Having said that" or "With that said"

"Granular level"

At the end of the day, I still occasionally find myself saying "at the end of the day"!

I haven't heard "granular level" before.

My least favorite current colloquialism: "It is what it is."

Hi Songbird!

Anything that uses "paradigm" as a negative term, such as "breaking the paradigm". The irony is that I have never seen anything that was said to "break the paradigm" being successful, whether it actually "broke the paradigm" or not.

Yeah, that is tedious. "Merry ex-mas to you" or "Happy Solstice" might be good replies to that.

I like ex-mas

I'm aware of the confusion over Xmas and Xtian, and that they're not normally pronounced that way.

I was responding to a post concerning people saying the overused and overly long "Merry Christmas and god bless you". I think that a shortened "Merry EX-mas" response to an overly long "Merry Christmas" balances things out.

That's exactly what I was going to say!

How about "this year went by so fast"! "I can't believe it's almost Christmas"! "Is it just me or does the earth seem a little warmer this year"?
