Title: Phrases That Need to Die
Post by: Max Wedge on June 03, 2014, 07:14:04 AM
 >:(

There are phrases and sayings that just make me cringe and I wish they would just go away. Here are a couple and why:

"You need to think outside of the box" -this really means you have no idea, it probably can't be solved, you didn't think this through when you started, and now you want me to fix it.

"You need to get out of your comfort zone" -why? They call it comfort for a reason. I'm good with it the way it is. If I wanted something bad enough I would go through the discomfort I need to achieve it. Being uncomfortable is not honorable just for the sake being uncomfortable. It's stupid.

"Man-cave" -WTF? Your wife kicked you out of the house so you now you hide in garage like a teenager? Why would anyone give up garage space for a pool table? It sounds like you need to grow a pair or stop reading 'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' style books. *Note: this isn't to say that well equipped garage isn't nice to work/hang around in to appreciate the lines of a nice bike or car. It's just the man-cave thing.

So what are your phrases that need to die?

"I literally...<insert whatever here>!"

"I literally died laughing!" - Oh, really? So I'm talking to a zombie or a ghost of you...which is it?

"I literally peed my pants!" - Wow...how embarrassing for you. Maybe you should look into Depends.

"I literally fell off my chair at the news!" - Did that hurt? Are you OK? Has the bruising diminished?

The only time I can tolerate it is on Parks and Rec (Rob Lowe's character) because he makes the use of literally seem as absurd as it is.

... more unique.
... most unique.

C/L ad: It's the most unique bike for sale in the universe!

Unique is an all or nothing. zero or one. It's like a light switch - it's either on or off. It can not be "more" on. Somewhat like being "a little pregnant" - you either are or you aren't. Something either is or is not unique.

"Does everything taste good?"  (Wait staff at restaurants).  Huh? Why are you asking this? If it were objectionable, I'd tell you, and if you're worried it's bad, don't serve it.

"Have a good one" (Uttered from total strangers, usually at store counters etc).  Kind of excessively informal for someone you don't actually know.  Perfectly fine if we are well acquainted however.

"Failure is not an option" -this one was used multiple times a day on a Honda program I worked on. It means that you need to work 16-18 hours days and throw as many people on it a you need (but don't have) and I don't care why it won't work, or can't be done, just magically make it happen. Failure is the only option when you don't plan.

People who use words like "traumatised" when they actually just a bit worried by a higher than usual electricity bill.

Fuckwads, being traumatised is being a serious car crash, being raped, watching your children be murdered.

"I hear you, but..."

or

"I appreciate what you said, but..."

The speaker believes they're being polite and empathetic by recognizing what the person just said.  However, by using "but," they're also being very dismissive.  And, it could cause the other party to become defensive.  I'm trying to break the habit of doing this. 

As a replacement, I'm trying the following approach:

"So, what you said is (repeat to make sure you understood)."  Follow that by, "Have you considered..."

Along these lines I submit, "No offense, but.."

I have a couple of co-workers who say this. I tell them that if they need to preface a phrase with that, then they should just shut their mouths then.

Or not. I mean, who doesn't love a free peep show?

Meanwhile...

"In order that...[do something whatever]"  :facepalm:

It's "in order to...."

And "For all intensive purposes..." None of your purposes are that intensive, you putz. Your intents and purposes might be pretty intense, though. But probably not. If fact, that whole thing can go away.

Modern English has really become very wordy. It's no surprise people have problems communicating.

If you want to go there, butchered phrases completely derail me. For example, "....we have to nip this in the butt...". I have stopped listening to what you are saying, started thinking about what the correct word is, (bud) where the phrase came from, and why you don't know that and continue to use it, and how many other things do you say that you don't know what they mean.

On the same topic, I love it when someone says, "I'm wanted to touch bases with you."   I don't follow baseball much, but I'm pretty sure a runner can only touch one base at a time.

Another phase I hear a lot in meetings is the misusage of "me" and "I."  OK, this may be more of a grammatical pet peeve. 


Incorrect

Me and Bob will take on that task.

Correct

Bob and I will take on that task.


Would you ever say, "Me will take on that task?"  I hope not.

That task was completed by Bob and I.

Boss has a tendency to say things like : "Team, I need someone to look at So and So...."

Theres 17 of us, 15 have been browsing the web for the last hour and aren't "looking" at anything but Youtube and amazon, meanwhile I'm elbow deep in 3 troubles and have 2 techs bridged on my line trying to troubleshoot a problem from a thousand miles away.


Then it comes......"delta can you look at so and so".....


"Well Boss, i'm elbow deep in 3, have 2 techs bridged on my line on 2 more and the ticket list is off the chain.....It might take awhile."


He always replies "Well, the team apreciates your efforts...."

I hate... HATE... the interstitial "right". A lot of people will use the word "right" at the end of a sentence to look for confirmation they're understood, or validation on their point... Example:

"Hey, you're still bowling tonight, right?"

That's perfectly fine.

But what I hate is when it's in the middle, simply replacing a pause or the "uhm" sound or something.

"I was walking down the road, right, and this car drove by and beeped for no reason."

It kind of infuriates me, and I don't even know why.

You work w/ a lot of PhD types?  There seems to be a direct correlation (here) between the use of that word to start a sentence and the level of education attained.  We dummies don't have that problem.

Could you imagine being a furiner and trying to pick up English from listening to certain groups of people speak?  "I know, right? So, like we're chillaxing at this bomb joint lates, nowutim sayin?"  Try to research the etymology of those words as a new student of the English language and garner meaning from them.  Explains a lot about engrish.com

So, like we're chillaxing at this bomb joint lates, nowutim sayin?"  Try to research the etymology of those words as a new student of the English language and garner meaning from them.  Explains a lot about engrish.com

I see it a lot in IT, the "so" thing.

However, this particular instance of redneckery doesn't supercede the fact that it is still a possessive so there is an apostrophe and an "s" to denote who the elastic belongs to.
or...to whom the elastic belongs if you're that guy.

What's wrong with "swing shift?"  That is what my old shift used to be called. The choices you had, were: Days, Swings, and Mids.

I don't have nearly as many probs with phrases now that I'm retired. There is a lot less thinking outside the box to expedite production levels to record highs (ya know...  higher than last year) while achieving more with less people, keeping morale up, and circumventing any safety concerns that may alleviate managerial issues to higher-ups so we do not have as such an elastic turnover rate which could eliminate any possible chance of profit sharing payouts.

just saying...

I know, right?   so.

Or not. I mean, who doesn't love a free peep show?

Meanwhile...

"In order that...[do something whatever]"  :facepalm:

It's "in order to...."

And "For all intensive purposes..." None of your purposes are that intensive, you putz. Your intents and purposes might be pretty intense, though. But probably not. If fact, that whole thing can go away.

Modern English has really become very wordy. It's no surprise people have problems communicating.


If you want to go there, butchered phrases completely derail me. For example, "....we have to nip this in the butt...". I have stopped listening to what you are saying, started thinking about what the correct word is, (bud) where the phrase came from, and why you don't know that and continue to use it, and how many other things do you say that you don't know what they mean.

It seems to me that Modern English has become considerably less wordy. Or at least the vocabulary of the average Jane and Joe seems to have gotten smaller of late. I blame texting and fcuking TwitterTM. Also memes.

-rant-

If I hear "that's just semantics" thirty seven more times (I'm not exactly a powderkeg) I'm gonna make a sharp remark, possibly scatological, almost certainly profane. For the last and probably not final time, semantics is what words mean, it's not a pejorative indicating weaselly-ness or other lawyer-related words.

Our teenage years and young adulthood were in the 70's and 80's which by my account anyway were pretty damn fun times, despite some questionable fashion trends.

 Now every ten years there's a new bunch but we're still stuck without any clear definition except "OK Boomer" . I just tell them to finish their Tide Pods before they get soggy.

I don't mind "OK Boomer" but just to be pedantic people like me who were born in the late 50's actually got fucked. We're lumped in with the Howdy Doody -Buck Rogers and Dale Evans - 50's burger barn jerk off in your dad's Chevy crap.

Our teenage years and young adulthood were in the 70's and 80's which by my account anyway were pretty damn fun times, despite some questionable fashion trends.



Alright alright... From here on out, you guys get an "OK, Disco Stu"

Every now and then I'll click his stupid "Show this post" to see if he's being so typically fucking asinine when responding to someone else. He usually is, but not always. I don't like anything about his idiotic perspective, but hey, since I'm apparently two standard deviations below him in iq, gosh and golly, I guess I'm just too dumb to figger owt whut that smert feller muss be thinkinin' and all that stuff like that thar!

Fuck him and everyone who wants to know him. Putz.

Chris, if you can't be an adult and either 1) NOT click "show this post" or 2) Read the comment, roll your eyes and move on, then... well, I don't know.

Just ignore the guy and move on with your life. Please....

We have been watching the old "Cheers" episodes on netflix. A couple nights ago we watched season 2 episode 16 "Cliff's Rocky moment".   It some how reminded me of the relationship the two Chris's have here. Very funny episode. Watch it if you get a chance. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0539714/ (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0539714/)

Social security's use of ' full retirement age'
Mine is 66.5.
But, I get MORE 'benefits' if I wait to claim until I'm 70!!
70 gets me the FULL benefit!

And while I'm here... their use of 'benefit'.
It's  money that I have paid into the system (mostly).
That is not under the main definition(s) of 'benefit'.

Do the numbers.

How much will your pay be if you take ss as soon as possible = A
How much will your pay be if you take ss when it's as much as it will be = B

B-A=C

How many years of B will it take for C to make up for all the A your were getting while waiting for B to arrive? Will you live that long? That's the wager. SS is betting you won't.

My wife and I are punting that one back and forth. She's retiring this year at 62 but money wise she won't lose much from staying working. I want to retire at 65 but I'll make an extra $340 a month if I stay till 66yrs 8 months...

"It is what it is."  I just don't know what that contributes to the conversation other than filling a void with noise.

My new favorite for banning is "after the pandemic, ________ will never be the same."  This, or variants on the theme, is becoming increasingly grating each time another article is published on that premise.

Edit:  I forgot to add "buttload," as in "I was carrying a buttload of stuff."  I think they mean boatload, implying a large quantity.  I ended a jr. high age niece's use of buttload when I asked if she was constipated.  (My wife didn't appreciate causing our niece embarrassment, but her sister--the mom--thought that I worked a miracle.)

Any time anybody says that phrase to me I respond with "And it isn't what it isn't.  And won't be what it won't be.  And wasn't what it wasn't."

This is occasionally enough to get the other person to recognize how asinine the original phrase really sounds.

No, a buttload is an actual historical unit of measurement.  Really.  The butt is a measure of liquid volume equaling two hogsheads. In other words, a butt of wine is approximately 126 gallons. A standard wine barrel contains about 60 gallons.

This is true.

Assuming “The pint is a pound the world around”, what would a boatload of buttloads weigh?

Well, the listed weight of boats isn't actually the weight at all.  You see a ship described as 15,200 tons or some such, but that isn't what the boat weighs.  The boat may be significantly heavier or lighter than that- the listed  weight is how much the water the hull displaces weighs.

So the answer is... who knows?

Nope. Buttload is correct in it's use. Both are valid expressions. One is vague since, to be more accurate, you need to differentiate between an Imperial Buttload vs a Metric Buttload.

So I need to apologize to my niece?  Nah, she was certainly not aware of any historical meaning and just wanted to get away with saying "butt."

1 Ass Ton = 10 Ass Loads
1 Ass Load = 10 Butt Tons

1 Ton = 10 Loads
1 Load = 100 Kilograms
