The ' going forward 'thing - as used by the TES bods in defence of the recruitment ad
Everything is ' amazing ' . I counted @ 35 ' amazings' during one episode of 'The Voice ' . Expect to hear ALOT in the next couple of (Olympic) weeks. Aaaargh
I hate, hate, hate 'alot'. And 'que' and 'defiantly.' I know they're not trendy words, but they seem to have recently appeared in all sorts of contexts.
This was my own personal hated expression.
Better and better and better .....
Just seen 'aswell'
I hate the incorrect use of the imperfect past tense of "sit"
ie: I was sat watching the television last night." It's SITTING!!!
You wouldn't say " I was drove on the M25 last night." Aghhhhh!!!!
People who start sentences (often in response to a question) with a protracted 'Sooooooo...'
Oh, and like foxtail, poor spelling gets to me. Your instead of you're, their instead of they're. 'We was'!!!
'We was' Grrrrrrrr
On the train today the ticket bloke said
'Could you remove you feet from the seat 'for me''
Finally, I want to scream when people say 'guys'
It's 'man' or 'bloke'
This is quite a recent phenomenon. Why do they do it? Why??
Just been to Tesco and someone said 'these ones'
Yahhhhhhhhhh. Why, oh why........
I have to admit, I'm guilty of using some of these expressions...
'Bae' (as in romantic partner/spouse etc.) What the Friar Tuck?!
When I hear teachers say 'come on guys'.....cringe...
When I hear ANYONE say 'come on guys'
Heard it in the children's playground the other day - a mother speaking to a couple of small kids!
