What catch phrases do you hate or love?


I like the positive message, but "It's all good," really bugs me for some reason! On the other hand (another catch phrase...) I don't hate, "C'est la vie..." Anyone else?

    I'm with you--just be environmentally a good person. You don't have to be "green" or, worse yet, worry about your "carbon footprint". You have to worry about the planet and other people's need to use it, too, not and in the future.

    I had never thought of the phrase "keep in mind" that is interesting and I can see it now that you mention it. Thank you for bringing that to my attention

    Yes! "I couldn't care less" is the proper form. The folks that say "...could..." instead are demonstrating both carelessness and a failure to understand word meanings.

    How about "Call me!" while wiggling hand near ear with thumb and pinky out. Hm, that one might be 'old school.'.

    Haha, I used "We're not in Kansas anymore" in the Hub I wrote.

    Ahh, I have cousins in New England, and the "wicked" thing has stayed with me. I like it! It seems to be one of those words that can be positive or negative (like "dude" in California) depending on how you say it.

    Yeah I recently discovered this one. I kept seeing it everywhere and had no idea what it was and then I heard it in a song and was like "REALLY???" LOL I'd rather hear or see "you only live once" than YOLO. It just sounds/looks silly to me.

    I'm not crazy about goofy abbreviations, either, but, in this day of character-delimited forums such as Twitter, I understand THERE the need to shorten & use as few characters as possible: " 2 B able 2 fit all U need 2 say? K? Thx." ;-)

    LOL. I have an issue with repeating what someone says when I think its hilarious. I'm always saying "she said..." or "he said..." and repeating what someone literally just said LOL. I don't know why but I can't seem to stop either

    Cool! I will go read it now. Link to this question page if you want-- we may get more good hate/love catch phrases. (Hm, now I'm wondering about the word "Cool" -- but I think I must keep it: also it is understood in so many countries...)

    Yes! Or when someone says, "It's nothing personal, but..." Of course it's personal.
