When people say 'I'm not gonna lie' bugs the hell out of me. So that means you normally lie?
"Spec me ..." is one that irks me and comes up all too often
"To be honest..."
'Can I get', in the context of ordering food. Firstly it just sounds so rude, and secondly, unless it's self service, you can't get anything yourself.
What's wrong with 'Could I have [item] please?'.
I am with you there! One of my employees used to say that to me, I'm thinking 'yeah, you better not be ******* lying'! Knob.
It's American, it doesn't have to make sense.
Having said that, if I worked in a coffee shop it would annoy the absolutely **** out of me to the point where I'd want to steam the offending customer's face.
Okay, so you don’t like to hear, “Can I get?”, that’s your prerogative, it’s your opinion and you have every right to express that opinion, but calling someone ******* scum for saying it, is a shade too far a push of the envelope in my opinion.
I doubt that you have the stones to say it to anyone who says “Can I get?” in a restaurant.
I think it's a London thing. I said can I get "insert haircut style" in my home town and the guy was aghast. I then realised how that isn't how we talk in the civilised world (anywhere outside of the m25).
Any sentence that starts with: "I'm not being funny/rude/racist/sexist etc..." because you know that that is exactly what the person speaking is being.
Also "I could care less" as that is normally the opposite of what is meant by the phrase.
Super- this, super- that.
"Basically..." said before some convoluted scheme is detailed
85 page powerpoint deck run through and presenter says "I don't want to drain this slide"... on every single slide.
Calm it cabbie, I was using hyperbolic exaggeration for comedic effect.
What does that even mean?
"the art of the possible"
"It's my year", coupled normally with opening an OnlyFans creator account...
Yeah right, keep on digging.
Comedic effect?, It wasn’t amusing, “hyperbolic exaggeration for comedic effect” is just another way of pleading, “I was only kidding, surely everyone could see that.”
Calm it cabbie was a nice touch though, I was cut to the quick.
'The exception proves the rule'
When used correctly I don't have a problem with it, but 99% of the time it's not used correctly.
You carry on by yourself mate, I'm really not interested.
Separate names with a comma.
