    Re: Things people say that irritate you

    I believe the life of a teenager can be reduced to three sayings that I abhor:

    1. "I know". They think they know everything and don't want to hear a differing opinion. So they ignore any input into their behavior.
    2. "I was just....." This somehow justifies anything they have done or said. It is meant to justify #1 when it turns out poorly.

    And then when you try to teach them you get (after arguing for a while),
    3. "My bad". A very complicated statement in two words as it means that they are taking the blame (sort of), that the conversation is now closed for discussion, and all repercussions should be eliminated as it is somehow a pardon due to the admission.

    When people say, "You know, you just never know."

    You mean when they verbalize a word?

    "I'm not trying to be mean, but..." The next few words are usually pretty mean.

    "I'm so old!" when said person is younger than you are.

    "Well that's just your opinion."

    No kidding jackwagon. Who else's opinion am I going to vocalize? The guy down the street? Pretty much anything anybody says is "just their opinion" unless it's something like "hey man, the sky is blue."

    "I'm German-Irish."

    Oh, really? You're a citizen of Germany and Ireland?

    "No, my great-grandpa was Irish, and my great-great-grandma on my mom's side was German."

    Oh. So you mean you're American?

    "'It's now very common to hear people say, "I'm rather offended by that", as if that gives them certain rights. It's no more than a whine. It has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. "I'm offended by that." Well, so what?'"

    This one is incredibly overused (and wrongly used) by new reporters.

    I remember during hurricane Katrina, the idiot standing in the wind said "New Orleans is LITERALLY a ghost town"

    So, what there's ghosts flying all over downtown and scaring people? No one knows what "literal" means anymore.

    Also, "Like I said..."

    We already know what you said, you're just using that as an excuse to repeat yourself.

    One more, as already mentioned, using nouns as verbs.

    Specifically that Mitt Romney commercial where he says "Champion small business"

    How do you "champion" something? That's like saying "I'm going to food my dinner now"
