This week’s Listography is a brilliant one for me as I’m unusually filled with bile when people use my most hated phrases, such as:
1. To Be Fair
I add this one to the list as I actually use it myself and inwardly cringe when I do as I overuse use it. To be fair to who exactly??
2. Blue Sky Thinking
I watched that documentary a few years ago about Heston Blumenthal working with Little Chef and, by the end of it, I wanted to punch the CEO of Little Chef as he KEPT USING THIS PHRASE. What do you mean? Do you even KNOW??
3. I, Like, Totally…
You, like, do, do you? Closed followed by ‘I was like, huh and she was like, oh get over it’. This one, I’ll admit MAY be because I’m getting old though.
And I literally died! No, no you didn’t. But you might and VERY SOON.
5. Mummy, I done a poo
Usually said when he’s not in the vicinity of the bathroom, let alone the toilet or potty *sigh*
Thanks again Kate for my cheap therapy!!
