    I’d like to add “On the same page” to phrases I’d be happy to never hear again.

  2. Leah says:

    How about “grab a drink/coffee” or “What’s up?” when answering the phone..The worst is when your spouse or significant other answers your call that way…GGGrrrrrrrrr

  3. Leah says:

    Oh yeah, how about “At the end of the day”

    I was interested in the 10 movie couples, but not enough to click a bunch of times.

    This must be an ad revenue thing, because almost every website does this, and I for one am just saying no. (It could be the miggie I have this morning. I am a Grumpy Gus.)

  5. Jane says:

    I had to bring a definition of bandwidth to a meeting to get people to stop saying it – it doesn’t apply to PEOPLE!

  6. Bobo says:

    If I ever hear the term “vis a vis” again, I will laugh at the sheer pretension of using it, then kick the person in the shin.

  7. Brittany says:

    Two that annoy me: ‘send it up the flagpole’, and the low hanging fruit – ‘outside of the box’. Sometimes I’d like people to stay focused on the inside of the box.

  8. Elle says:

    How about “robust” when describing a website or software. Robust used to refer to coffee, didn’t it?

  9. Janine says:

    The phrase “reach out” always makes me want to gag…as in, “We’ll be reaching out to you after the meeting to touch base”… It’s so fake touchy feely.
