With all due respect, you shouldn't of

Oxford compiled a list of the most irritating phrases in the English language:

The top ten most irritating phrases:

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


What other words or phrases irritate you? I personally abhor: "litterally," any variation of "give 110%," relating a unit of distance or area to the equivalent number of football fields, and "irregardless".

Now you go . . .

On a different subject entirely, I was so sorry to read in the christian Chronicle that Cascade is going to be closing at the end of Spring 2009. that will be sad for all of you and put a big hole in the Lord's kingdom in the northwest. hope it doesn't make your work too much harder!
