Discussion in 'Personal' started by doomzebra, Jul 9, 2011.

  1. Are we talking about senior management?
  2. 'End of play' as in 'Do you think you can get it done by end of play today?' I always want to ask why it is that they consider it to be 'play'. To me, it's work.
    'My bad', as in 'Oh, it was me who threw all your resources in the bin, I thought it was rubbish. My bad'. Grammatical nonsense!
  3. Yer Mam used to be an abbreviation for "Shagged yer Mam" but recently it's become the response to "You're gay!" "Yer Mam's gay!" "You missed the penalty!" "Yer Mam missed the penalty!"
  4. missed the penalty?
  5. yous
  6. Any criticism will do, bobvincent.
    Agree that "my bad" deserves a punch every time.
  7. I was going to post 'my bad'. What the heck does it mean anyhow and where did it come from? Another phrase that makes me want to slap someone is 'Enjoy' said by any half ***** waitress.

  8. "sweet" and "mint" when you approve of something.

    'Whatever floats your boat'
    'I was thinking.....' - DON'T because your thinking lands me with more work!
    'Action plan' - is this not the same as a plan???!!
    'Budget' - just tell me there is no money!
    'We all know that ......' - no we don't all know or agree with you so don't assume!
    'Summer Fair' - why should I give up my Saturday planning sessions to spend more time at school???
    'It's school policy' - yeah, only when it suits you though!
    'Window shopping' - if I can't buy something why bother going??!
    'Guys' - aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!! now this one I really hate!!!!

    Haven't read the whole thread so sorry if it's already been said but...
    "I need you to..."
    a) bog off asking me to do more than I already do
    b) you don't NEED me to do anything. You might want or like me to but that's your lookout.

    going forward-completely redundant, as many of these phrases are. However I have been known to use one or two mentioned on this thread [​IMG]
  16. Meh - I have no idea what this means but I think it is meant to indicate ennui[​IMG]
    Nom nom - enough to put me off <u>my</u> food[​IMG]
  17. Buffy the vampire slayer - never heard it before then

    My hates:

    very unique - no it is or it isn't, it can't be very
    Myself - when used by people who think it's a posh form of 'me'
    You just have to think.................. no I don't have to think the same as you, I have a different opinion

  18. Exactly what I was going to say doglover! Especially the 'no offence, but...' and then they go on to be very offensive!

    Also: anything that includes the phrase 'holistic' or 'taking ownership of'
  19. Two choices...no no no no...you have ONE choice with two OPTIONS. A choice is "either ,or"
  20. This is my pet hate at the moment. My headteacher always refers to himself as "myself": "Year 5 will be taught by myself next year..." at a recent parents' evening.
    Aaaaarrgggghhhhh. [​IMG]
