They creep into the workplace slowly but surely. It may be that somebody has been on a course or there is a new starter.

Here are just a few that annoy me:-

Can we "touch Base" sometime.......AAAHHHHHHHHHHH

We will take a "helicopter view" on the matter.....WHAT

There is this one which comes up on a regular basis...."With all due respect".....what the individual is saying I know better than you you Dumb $%?"

What are your phrase hates

My old boss used to always say when something wasn't finished "Can we capture this?" how big was his hands? used to get on my tits!

Also "I need to get a feel for the store" !!!!!

I used to have a manager who came in every morning and uttered "How goes it" i just wanted to say F**K OFF everytime he said it.

Also it really annoys me when people ask you "How's it hanging"...... yawn

"back in the day"

FFS this is just so annoying to hear. YOU ARE NOT A RAPPER, SHUT IT! It's not even English and just makes people sound daft to me.

Let's stop for a comfort break.

From what point did we work in the USA? We'll be referring to the loos as the rest room next.

Oh crap, we already do that...

"to be honest"... when its used all the time by people... Are you not normally honest with me then????

"And you know me....!" Yes I do.. so don't bother to tell me that, OR if I dont then don't tell me I do

i say "how goes it" sometimes, sems to make people smile, but maybe it's not a happy smile, maybe its the " If you say that one time i'll..." smile

Buzzwor bingo me up!

Basically!

At the end of the day!

...so we are all singing from the same songsheet! cannot remember talking up singing?

On top of this don't you just hate management that have an inability to think / present from notes - instead they have to write the whole presentation into Powerpoint and read from the screen. Rather than have a few pointers/bullet points and talk around them ensuring the audience either takes notes or has a "full copy" to take away.

Two I hate think outside of the box and staying/looking in the zone - they just grate.

I have to admit having read some of this, I'm hoping they just grate, and you don't actually quite mean everything that's written. Some can be quite funny!

My Nr.1 hate is people who say Cio, Chow or whatever is the spelling..... in fact I feel sick having just attempted to type the word !!

"I've got a turtles head..."

"That's almost touching cloth...."

"Lets take a comfort break so I can curl one out and have a ***..."

It's not really a pharse but when people go for example. 'lets go to the shops and get this and that HUH' or when they say huh instead of pardon really REALLY annoys me!

PMSL - having a rather crude sense of humour means i find all those highlighted bits quite amusing [;)]

Lol i really hate people who say that, just wanna punch them.

I also hate people who say stop for 'refreshments' in a play or something, its so naff.

Hmm what else, afraid i'm guilty of saying my bad a lot but can see why the obvious grammatical errors in that statement annoys people.

I hate people who say gonna pop to the toilet or something, its really camp.
