"What it boils down to" or "the upshot is" (If you thought I couldn't figure out your point on my own, why did you waste my time with the b.s. beforehand?)

" have a blessed day" (are you blessing me?? Are you clergy? please stop or you'll get kicked in the nads)

"...our Lord... " (you mean YOUR Lord....don't automatically include me in your religion...I may have a different Lord)

"I'm letting that un-thaw" (hear this too often, but wonder how something will freeze while sitting out?)

" Excuse me sir, but I am stranded and need thirty-seven cents for bus fare" ( I usually like to tell these douches that it must be our lord's will, and to have a blessed day)

I should be slapped for being able to write that.

5 pages and no one has mentioned my #1 pet peeve with American speech these days??

"REALLY?"

No, I'm lying to you, douchebag!! It's EVERYWHERE and EVERYBODY uses it as some mock incredulous adjective. STOP IT NOW, DOUCHEBAGS!

Example: "I went into Starbucks and got a foo-foo freaking latte and the cream on top was flat. Really???"

Even hear it on talk radio now. Get over yourselves. It seems to have replaced my other hated word -- "Like". Like, you know, like.... GAAAAAHHHHH!!!!

"That's what she said!" followed by obnoxious fake laughter.

Have a blessed day = Beware! I am going to try to screw you out of something while distracting you with my faith and piousness. When I hear it I feel like the person that said it should have just tried to pick my pocket and saved us a wasted conversation.

I think the phrase: "guess what? I'm really not a woman!!" deserves a kick in the nads....

Disclaimer: theoretical excercise...I have never actually heard it said

Most people in business won't be a able to talk daily if you removed all of these.
