"Cooked from scratch".
Cooked from scratchings would probably be worse for me.
"you'll love this", as seen leading up to a flat punchline in all unfunny "jokes" circulating the email universe
LOL. Can't stand LOL. My daughter has actually SAYING LOL. Pronounced 'lol'
She also SAYS CBA, as in "I CBA to go out tonight..."
Just a phase I know, but these phases seem to go on forever.
"You had to be there..."
Yeah? Well why are you bothering to tell me something that's unfunny and pointless then?
'I ain't bein funny right' usually they aren't.
'you know what I'm saying' usually said by some faux rapper after an incomprehensible sentence.
I'm a grumpy old man I can probably think of loads.
Let me be the first to say 'On the hustings' Which we will be hearing a lot of over the next month. Its only ever used at election time and no-one has a clue what it means.
Stunts you're going to get so many takers. The list is endless.
Any person who announces their (always incorrect) characterstics at the beginning of a sentence. ie "I'm really laid-back...", "I'm an open-minded person..." "I've got a great sense of humour...". If it's that bloody obvious, I'll work it out for myself, thanks.
"No brainer", I autonomically assume someone is selling me a pup.
"Very unique", enough already.
"Mate", unless we were in the navy together I'm not your mate, you cnut!
The fact of the matter is...
"If I'm perfectly honest with you..."
Cheryl Cole says it all the time on X Factor, thereby squishing the integrity out of her every remark.
I like it when people say "with respect", since it invariably means exactly the opposite.
On the same lines it's always a bad sign when someone starts a sentence with "Don't take this the wrong way..."
Or, "No offence, but..."
Pacific. This is a large ocean.. to be specific.
Late on Saturday night, Mr B and I were watching one of those naff "Ultimate Cage Fighting" type shows to have a laugh at how seriously they all take it, when a commentator said, "His legs are literally like arms!"
Eh? Either this bloke has four arms, or can metamorphasise his legs into arms at will.
"a piece" as in "2 a piece" instead of "2 each" or "2 all"
Cheap at half the price.
I'll always love you as a friend.
as in "I was, like, ...."
Oh, and "you're turning into Victor Meldrew" gets on my tits too.
There is a special circle of Hell for those who uses literally when they mean figuratively, Jeni. Right next to the one for people who think disinterested is a posh way of saying uninterested, and anyone who uses quintessentially but isn't a practicing alchemist.
Agree there. Disinterested means unbiased, uninterested means not interested.
Same with imply and infer.
And distract v. detract.
When used by some talentless drone - "Your new single is Awesome" - the birth of your child, sitting in the front seat of a helicopter travelling through the Pyranees is truely awesome - not some souless generic song.
"... and she turned round and said...so I turned round and said...." NO YOU DIDN'T!!!!
"Free gift", if it is a gift then it should be free.
What? If it's been prepared then that's all we need to know. What preparation did you do before you prepared??
"Quantum step for . . . " meaning a large step - which it ain't!
