    Phrases that Annoy You

    "Looks like you got your ears lowered!" - when someone gets their hair cut.

    "Working hard or hardly working?" - mostly just idiots say this.

    What are yours?

    I just heard someone say it to a coworker and thought, "People really still say this?" Apparently yes.

    Re: Phrases that Annoy You

    WTF does "by hook or by crook" mean? I've heard three people say it lately, and it just seems dumb.

    I tease my husband when he says something was done "soup to nuts." I also don't understand the origin of that.

    Re: Phrases that Annoy You

    "I could care less" when you couldn't care less but are not smart enough to say it correctly.

    Ugh, every trite or sappy story ever involves someone's personal "journey." Barf.

    "Aholes. Everyone's got one, and they stink"
    "Throwing **** against the wall and hoping it sticks"
    "**** hits the fan"
    "Peeing against the wind"

    And all similar ones.

    "they control their own destiny". If its destiny, then you have no control over it.
