    What's a saying today, that  you often hear other's say, that irritates the hell out of you?

    I must admit that it irritates me when people use negative terms to describe something good.  (actually I'm just confused!)  For instance, on American Idol the judges will say, "that was sick" - "that was ridiculous"  etc.  when someone is really great.  I'd probably cry if they told me I was ridiculous!  smile

    I guess it started when "bad" became, "cool".

    "I'm bad, I'm bad, ya know it, c'mon" 

    There's enough confusion, let's just keep one definition for English words.  Ha! I'm getting old.

    Thank you for the question albertsj in regards to what phrase annoys me. This is my answer.
    The saying that annoys me the most is "Don't worry, put it in God's hands"... If you cry, don't cry because if you believe in God and you trust Him you... read more

    The most irritating thing I can hear at the right moment when I feel like I really don't want to hear that is - 'Calm down, everything's going to be better,you'll see'. And really,at that very moment, I just want a moment for myself...

    I get annoyed when I hear people who have managed to pick up a bargain or saved money on their shopping, say 'Every little helps,' I think it annoys me because the saying seems to have been popularised by those adverts from Tesco (Supermarket).

    the phrase that bothers me more then any other is "the lord works in mysterious ways" it is beyond rediculous and nothing but a cop-out.

    albertsj.......Dare I tell?   You've raised my blood pressure, because just THINKING about some of the current "popular comments," IRRITATES me!  HA! How many am I allowed to list?  I guess I'd give away too much about my out-dated ways of thinking........so, I'll go with one of my TOP TEN irritations!  LOL
                                   "That's NOT  Politically Correct!"         
      With all due resepct to the sensitivities of our dear fellow-hubbers.......this is all I'm saying.....at this time.

    Oh the list is long!  One of the things I hate is that we have started to abbreviate perfectly good words when we speak.  Vaca - vacation, addy - address, OMG - Oh My God.  It is like we are all texting instead of speaking.  When did we become to tired to use all of the syllables?

    Also the consistent use of profanity/curse words as a part of our daily language bothers me.  I was married to a cop so I've heard it all and the language does not shock me, but I just have no clue when it became acceptable to use it so freely.

    Hmmm... 'It's all good.' Comes to mind... Somebody apologizes for dropping a brick on your foot, you respond: 'It's all good.'

    Too often I hear someone talking, or should I say complaining about something and then the articulate vocabulist standing next to them says,  "I know, right?"

    I hate to hear others say, "Wow, you clean up well," just because a girl puts on makeup.

    "Dp you know what I'm saying?" Hate that one! No, I don't! Please say what you are trying to say! Why do I have to figure it out?

    "I could care less." You're saying that you do actually care... which is generally not the intended meaning. Instead it should be "I couldn't care less."

    There are a few.  OMG or LOL when someone speaks each letter is very annoying.

    If someone says they're "offended."  Well that's rough, doesn't mean I'm going to change what I said, haha.   Good question.  I'm sure there are a lot more out there.

    When somone apologises and says ' I'm sorry' then the immediate retort is 'Sorry it's to late to be sorry now'
    If the person had not done something wrong in the first place, there would be nothing to be 'sorry' about!!
    Best Wishes.

    Upon protesting that someting is not fair, to hear a canned reply of "Well, life's not fair."  It makes me want to scream!

    If life is so unfair, and only the people who don't play fair get ahead, then why are we wasting time and energy trying to teach our kids to play fair and by the rules?  So they can get stepped on, shoved aside and otherwise put at some disadvantage by those who do not play fairly?  I swear, non-violent person though I am, the next time I hear someone say that, I'm decking them!

    The other current popular "sayings" that are really getting old and I'm sick of hearing are, "REALLY!?"  and "SERIOUSLY?!"  These two words seem to be uttered at every single slight provocation from dropping something on the floor to hitting 3 red lights  in a row to disbelieving someone else's stupid action.

    It's time for these folks to find a better way to express themselves.

    "Stuff" ... I could seriously injure someone when "stuff" comes into a conversation.

    "What did you do today?"
    "Stuff."  No kidding, genius.  I assumed as much >:-(

    "So I went over to his place and stuff."  ... and WHAT stuff???

    It's embarrassing how crazy "Stuff" makes me.

    Any cliche' is irritating but there are many generic sayings are just bad: "the sun doesn't shine on the same dog's tail every morning, colder than a witch's tit, you can't polish a turd.".. These are a little crude.
