I really hate the "N-bomb" being tossed about. One night when I was in Grad-School (people are grouchy there) some younger kids were goofing around in a computer lab calling each other "N-----" and laughing

I'm sure it's a goofy hip-hop thing...like the lowered Hondas they also had in common, but I was really offended...but not as offended as the large African American guy who also heard.

He stopped just short of violence (dissapointment) they were all scurrying around telling him "it's cool" and saying the words to Rap Songs that also used the offending word.

I thought about that for quite awhile after...The thought of these halfwitted kids yelling such a hurtfull word, throwing it around with no respect for what it signified in the lives of people.

I guess that's part of racial equality in pop culture that nobody thinks of.

N-bomb...

The weather people around here have stopped saying "rain event" and "snow event" but...

"grow your business" is pezing from the mouths of business consultants everywhere. It works, but I'm sick of it already, particularly when they emphasize and elongate "groooooow" as if they think we are just hearing it for the first time.

By the way, ya like "pez" as a verb? I usually use it for people who have too many kids too fast.

'Run it up the flagpole'

'This is a no blame culture'...i.e. we're gonna blame someone

The word "whatever"-saying something is "not acceptable"-"coolio"-I can't think of anymore right now,but I'm sure I will.

Anyone who uses "at the end of the day" needs to be hauled off to jail.

I'm glad to see that my favorite newish word, "manscaping," hasn't made the list.

Whoops -- that's what I get for posting before reading the entire thread.

'Upbeat'. Any time I bengin to discuss music with a client for a commercial, they say 'we want something upbeat'.

Yes, of course. As opposed to that dirge music I was planning on.

Also, they request I should make them ads that really 'stand out'.

"To die for"

I still hear people say that and I still want to strangle the life out of them when I hear it just to see if they really mean it.

"Wow, that salad is to die for, aaaaaagggggghhhhhh"

Also, I know it was already said, but "My bad" has to be the most irritating phrase ever.

I can't take "at this point in time" or if they really want to sound important "at this particular point in time" ... puke!

How about "at this point" or even "at this time" geez.

Good one, Laney. "Now" works, too.

When people gripe about someone else's poor grammar and then use "loose" when they mean "lose" - that's when I lose it!


Cyn: "At the end of the day" is the title to my favorite Ink Spots song.

I could live happy if I didn't hear this phrase again for the rest of my life:

"For sizzle my nizzle on my k swizzle dizzle". As Snoop likes to put it.
