I just thought of one that drives me insane! Why is it now when someone is waiting in line for say a Slurpee at the local 7-11 - it's now referred to as waiting on line? Are people so intent on proving their technological savvy that they have to use computer jargon to describe everyday events? WTF?

I was referring to all the media pundits who are always saying "...and at the end of the day, you have...." aargh.

I mentioned "manscaping" earlier. During our current warm weather, I'm seeing plenty of it! (yum!)

Sometimes salespeople (mostly in Nordstrom) in a clothing store will say, "It looks great on." while you're looking at an item. If you're in a mood,and you were going to buy it anyway, it's fun to pour on the charm and say, "Oh, it will never be put on, but I'll take it, it's fabulous!"

Apropos of the Nordstrom's thing, I've been noticing a lot of dropped-subject/object sentences lately, as in:

"You want me to go with?"

Wassup wid dat, anyway?

Is this what you would consider "manscaping" to be?

Well, the bright side is, if #3 crashes, he can always switch to #8.

"Peace--Out"
"Keepin' it real"

My store is a block away from an elementary school, I often hear entire "conversations" of "Dude", "Sick", "Tight" "Coolio"...

e. Putting "e" in front of everything. It's very e-nnoying!

And Mrs Pineapple would like me to stop saying "I gotta get me...". I'll think about it, but then I gotta get me another phrase instead.
