    Re: Things people say that irritate you

    The awful phrase "Going forward" has been widely adopted as execuspeak in the last couple of years, a term that I'm sure these people have seized upon because it sounds so active, as if they think it can turn even the worst news into something that is part of the strategic plan.

    "We foresee significant negative revenue going forward", to the lazy ear could almost sound reassuring.

    What ever happened to using the word "future" to mean "future"?

    When you ask someone what time it is and they say 5:00, when its really 4:53. It is not 5, its 4:53, don't be lazy.

    Grammatical errors, slang, improper word choice - none of that irritates me anymore

    What irritates me is when they say:
    • Where'd you get all that gray hair?
      You're hearing ain't what it used to be
      You're zipper's down ... again
      You look constipated
      Your wife looks a lot younger than you

    "Help me understand."

    That is management speak amd it drives me crazy.

    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    "Think harder"

    I can push harder, run harder, pull harder, hit harder, but how do I think harder?

    "In regards to..."

    Usually said by people who are trying to fake a more technical sounding speech than they are capable of.

    The word "like" when it is every other word in a sentence. Such as:

    So, I like went to the store to get Oreos and they were like out. So I asked the manager, like where are the Oreos and he was like we are out. I was like seriously and he was like yeah.

    Re: Things people say that irritate you

    Something I've noticed lately in message boards and on some of my friends facebook pages (I don't have a facebook page but have seen others) is people don't form complete sentences.

    Example: Dude's a beast! (You mean: That dude's a beast?)

    Example: Getting ready to take shower, take Bob to grocery. (You mean: I'm getting ready to take a shower, and then I am taking Bob to the grocery)

    Example: Can't decide between pizza and wings (You mean: I can't decide between pizza and wings)


    I know some will say it's just to save time, but I with this trend becoming more and more common I wonder what things will look like 10 years from now.
