  • "I know you think...." (they don't)
  • "You know what I mean?". I know at least two people who say this almost without exception when they make a statement. For instance "Those pretzels are really salty, you know what I mean?". (Well, yes, of course I know what you mean, I do speak the language!) It irritates the hell out of me.
  • Your face ought to be slain.
  • "That's gay." "You're such a fag!"
  • That's the way the ball bounces. You see what I'm saying.
  • To each his own.
  • Maybe not slain but definately maimed: Foreign imports. All you gotta say is imports. Joint cooperation. All you gotta say is cooperation. New innovations. All you gotta say is innovations. Or maybe that isn't exactly what you are looking for. Oh well.
  • "Bling" Can't you just say jewelry, accessory or something other than some ghetto street term?
  • Slain is a bit extreme, maybe just beaten to a pulp:)? "Ya know?" "Whatever!" "Talk to the hand." "As if!"
  • "That's AMAZING!" - When everything is amazing, then nothing is special. They say this about everything, and I've even caught myself doing it a few times, so I know it can be a persuasive addiction, but I hate it with a passion. . "Sounds good." - This little sing-songy chant is inflected like some perverse mantra of approval, often automatically and completely without the brain engaged. Any non-cliche substitution would be preferred. . "Fer true." - Creeping out of the Southern swamps, this sound bite of agreement gets annoying quickly unless you're a coonass for whom this is native speak and quite acceptable. .
  • lol lmao lmfao Pretty much stuff like that cause i know i use them way to much all of the time.lmao.
  • "I gotta tell ya, ..." "Can I be totally honest with you?" "Just between you, me, and the lamp post, ..." "Can you keep a secret?" "I'm just sayin ..." " ... well ... I dunno - y'know?" "Does this make me look fat?"
  • The term "exactly". So overused as an expression of patronizing the listener...like "hey, I saw that game last night and they really should pass to the tight ends more often". Then the listener replies with "exactly!". Like that's really what the fuck the listener was thinking. Just a passive way of saying, "you really don't mean much to me, but I'm going to offer you this piss-ant expression to make you think you're really on top of things". fuckin' hate it....exactly!!!!
  • This isn't necessarily an expression but It grates my nerves when people say the word "like" after every other word when they're talking: "I was, like, so upset when he, like, told me that I was, like, totally drunk when he, like, tried to, like, kiss me."
  • LOL, ROFL or any similar term. I mean, are you actually sitting at your computer laughing out loud as you type a question? Did you read an answer, fall out of your chair and roll around the floor with laughter? C'mon. What we need is some kind of text-speak for "that was funny" or "that made me chuckle."
  • Hello ? " Hi" "what are you doing ?" stop asking what i'm doing people ! talking to you !
  • you go girl bite me you gotta love me where at
  • you go girl bite me you gotta love me where at
  • "I'd hit it" God, I hate that expression.
  • "It's not a fashion parade" is if that's not obvious or "Life's not fair" I don't need somone to tell me that. or "Just go in and face the music" what does that even mean? and my altime worst phrase ever is... "it is all but over"... just so annoying.
  • I told you so it's like an invitation for murder!
  • I told you so it's like an invitation to murder!!!
  • "Let's face it": Let's face what? This is an utterly meaningless expression. "What not": Even worse. And if I hear "the perfect storm" just once more in a news story, I'm going to puke. It wasn't a particularly snappy expression to begin with, and is even less so after being used fourteen million times.

  • Actually..as in actually I don't think... Let me be perfectly clear....(a favourite of politicians who have no such intention) Are you OK? (No, I'm lying here with a broken leg cos I've got nothing better to do) In a minute...(and three hours later) But seriously.. (was the rest of your conversation a Joke?) Some of my friends are...insert option(And then you know there's a 'but' coming) God, it's hot/cold/wet today (Really? I hadn't noticed)
