Thread: Throw away phrases that bug you?

    Throw away phrases that bug you?

    Just woken to my 14th morning of man flu, most of these mornings have been started off listening to the news on the telly, been hearing what seems to be the pole position phrase again," So that it won't/can't happen again", closely followed by "So that lessons can be learned" What's your non favourite?

    PS Hope you feel better soon. I'm only on day 4 (or 5?), so I feel your pain - there, that's probably another one!

    "We are doing everything we can" - Thats one that normally gets used at various times of the year and really gets my goat.

    "Crack on" and "lessons learned" and "like"

    'Going forward' -meaningless phrase that adds nothing to a sentence.

    'stuff' instead of belongings and 'images' instead of pictures. 'Flavour' instead of calibre/gauge.
    The list goes on - but then - I am a grumpy old git!.

    "we will find those responsible" Usually used when the guilty party has been caught already but blame needs to be laid on someone else or a whole organisation.

    "Much less" !!!!! Aaarrrggghhhhh. How can you have more of less ????

    "If we win the election....." is most definitely a throw away phrase
