Not David Letterman's Top 10...

Monday, November 10, 2008

researchers at oxford university have compiled a list of the top 10 most irritating phrases in the english language. #1 on said list, i could not agree with more.

i had a boss once, who after EVERY damn sentence would conclude her thought with, "at the end of the day i/we/you {summarization of previous thought}." i think it's a phrase that people like to use when they truly enjoy hearing themselves speak.

1 - at the end of the day
2 - fairly unique
3 - i personally
4 - at this moment in time
5 - with all due respect
6 - absolutely
7 - it's a nightmare
8 - shouldn't of
9 - 24/7
10 - it's not rocket science

I'm with you on all the above except I like "absolutely."

Yikes. Is "I'm with you" #11?

no, i think "thanks for sharing" and "nice write" are 11 and 12. those are the two most annoying blog comments ever. especially when they are not followed by anything relevant. they are code for "this shit is too long, and i don't care enough to actually read it, but i am going to comment anyway because you are too stupid to realize that i didn't read it if i comment on it. so, thanks for sharing, nice write!"

HELLO FOLKS and thanks for reading www.isweatbutter.com! i look forward to reading your comments on my posts, but understand that some people have a tough time figuring out the "process." so here's a quick lesson for you: just type your comment in the space provided, and don't even worry about signing in... choose the "name/url" option and just type your first name or a nickname and then hit "publish comment." that's it, it's just that easy! thanks again for reading and for commenting!
