10 Words and Phrases That Tick me off!

11 Aug

"Don't tick off Mr. TALLspeaking"

“Don’t tick off Mr. TALLspeaking”

  • Perfectly Honest
  • ATM machine
  • dog do-do
  • give 110%
  • I’m just saying
  • I’m not gonna go down that road
  • In my opinion I believe
  • It’s heavenly
  • make no mistake
  • next steps and best practices

There is nothing more fun than to eavesdrop on other peoples conversations.  Today, I overheard a manager telling a co-worker about an employee that just was not up to standard.  She started out by say “to be perfectly honest with you”  This phrase ticks me off because it basically says that most of the time I am not honest.  Plus, how can anyone actually be “perfect” unless their ego is beyond any mortal imagination.    Think about the annoying phrases that we all say and how they can be interpreted and really annoy other people.

    Starting sentences with:
    “You know” Thought: First I may or may not know but it is an annoying speech crutch

    “But” starting a sentence with But is an automatic negation of whatever was just said which does not enhance dialogue. IN addition it is often a speech crutch in which you are not even intending to negate what the person said.
