God I Hate Everyone

The OED came out with a list of the top ten most irritating phrases in the English language. There really isn't much I can say here because if you don't involuntarily shudder and go blind reading this list then get the fuck off my blog :-)

1 - At the end of the day
2 - Fairly unique
3 - I personally
4 - At this moment in time
5 - With all due respect
6 - Absolutely
7 - It's a nightmare
8 - Shouldn't of
9 - 24/7
10 - It's not rocket science
Preasebrog (and contributing friends) would also like to add the following:
-Myself
-For all intensive purposes
-Axe
-What's good
-A whole nother
-If you will
-Ironically

(For a more comprehensive analysis of things shitty people say, I send you here )

what's good, shorty?

i would add:
"no offense, but..."
"that's so ironic" (i blame alanis for this one)
"like...like...like..."
"um...ummm...ummmmmmmm"
any sentence that uses a double-negative to convey the meaning of a single-negative sentence

yay grammar!
