    But seriously (how about that one?), the one that gets me is "I heard that", of course it never bothered me until Carlin brought it up. Fortunately it's not used much if at all anymore. Here'a new one that's rubbing me raw though, "What it do"? (meaning) What's going on with you"?

    "Going forward." This seems to be a phrase that business students are being taught to say a lot now.

    "What if I told you..."

    Usually spoken by someone who is attempting to sell you something that is too good to be true.

    Talk of "spring coconuts" is sort of cooly irritating. That thread is like a train wreck.

    Don't want it to happen, but if it does, I'm so there.

    "License and registration please".

    "Hello, this is the Mason police".

    "There is a problem with your card, sir"

    "Your call is important to us, please hold"

    "Hey, that's my wife".

    Here's one I actually got on Wednesday night: "I thought you knew [I'm not on birth control]."

    Ouch! Condoms stink but they're one of the necessary evils of life. Imo, it's better to play it safe everytime especially since sometimes it can be hard to know someone enough to take the chance.

    "So didn't I"

    "For all intensive purposes"

    "No Worries"

    "Aight"

    "Here's yer sign"

    "Tell them about the discount, Harry"

    "I'll Facebook you"

    I could go on for hours.
    Witty signature.

    The increasingly common misuse of "myself". Drives me up the freaking wall. I am pretty forgiving of grammar miscues when they happen out of ignorance, but a grammatical error made in effort to sound smarter is unforgivable.

    Anything having to do with Twitter.

    "Tweet"
    "Tweeted"
    "Twote"

    etc.

    Call me crazy if you want but whenever I hear "twitter" I think of some cartoon I watched when I was a kid. Twitter, tweety, eh whatever. It's just an odd name.

    "I want to take it to the box" (meaning "I want a jury trial") - usually spoken by a defendant with a really bad case and a long record.

    "The cops must've planted it there" - from defendants with a long history of drug abuse when charged with possession.

    "I can't/won't come down to court, but can I send my minister/mom/dad/grandma?" - from witnesses crucial for a client's defense.

    "Can I just write the judge a letter?" - again from key witnesses.

    "I spoke to [the victim] and she said she want's to drop the charges." - from clients charged with domestic violence (and subject to a protection order), which means additional charges are coming.

    - "...you know..." when used a 46 times in a sentence.

    - "mean-spirited."

    - In a song, "carry on." As in "how can I carry on..." or "strength to carry on..." I will point out that "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas is exempt from this.

    I myself love discourse markers.

    Sorry, had to do it.
