Irritating Words And Phrases

Recommended Posts

I have a few that grate on me each time I hear or read them .

I have just received a response to an e mail that starts “Thank you for reaching out to.......”

This reaching out business seems to be in common usage in the U.S.,in place of contacted,rang ,wrote or whatever.

Just stop “reaching out” please.

”my journey” is another.

It’s not really an irritating word but people who’s voices go up at the end of a sentence as though they are asking a question when they aren’t !

"On Accident"  it's by accident.

"I could care less" when they actually mean I couldn't care less.

 

Anything the yoof currently say.

 

Ta also annoys the snot out of me.

 

Any phrases that are Sheffield also annoy me, and I've been here since birth.
