Re: Sayings that you hate now

To the list I would like to add "It's a miracle" especially as it is so often applied to situations it is not appropriate to use

For example a child (such as Cecelia Cichan or Ruben van Assouw) is the sole survivor of a plane crash in which a 100 or more people die and the child's survival is listed as a 'miracle'. This is despite the fact that the child loses their whole family and suffers serious injuries themselves.

There are very good and known reasons why children are more likely survive certain types of plane crashes than adults are. There is no miracle involved.

One that's being played to death by script writers this season, "when you seek vengeance, dig 2 graves...". Ugh, so tired of it.

Holy fuck!? A collective sneeze of 315 million people would be impressive!

"A storm is coming." is another one that is overused.

I prefer tea myself. Or bacon.

Bacon in any form can never be overused.

Re: Sayings that you hate now

How about a compromise? Deep-frozen bacon?

Another saying I hate: may I ask you something?
argh! You already did, so it'd be pointless for me to say "no, you may not" as it's too late now.

OH I HATE THAT.

It is truly horrible because I always assume it's going to be an unwanted personal question. A friend of mine prefaces all kinds of shit with that though, literally yesterday she used it and it was about modems. But she also uses it to start very horrible conversations about herself, in which after you say "no, I haven't ever (dreadfully personal thing)" she launches into all the ways she has.
