Re: Things people say that irritate you
I don't like the phrase "this is a win-win" proposition. Yes, sometimes both sides win, but that usually isn't the case when someone tries to convince everyone to agree by insisting that it is a "win-win" deal.
"Aren't I" is a phrase that has always amused me. The speaker presumably would not say "I are......", but in trying to avoid saying "I ain't" and not knowing to say "am I not," "aren't I" is the phrase spoken.
