Yanbu

'NO' is a great expression. grin

How about 'enjoy' as you are served your food? angry

Nothing wrong with NO.

Unless it's followed by 'worries'.

Okey dokey also send my blood pressure through the roof.

NO grin

Enjoy doesn't bother me, as at least it is gramatically correct. You can 'enjoy'.

"Not a problem".

squeaky I hate that.

AmIthatHot Tue 15-Oct-13 18:09:12

Agree with "how's you". Really annoys

So does "comfortable in his/her/my own skin". For some reason

'He/she needs told' or any variant using the same format - does my head in!

I hate, 'Can I get...?' e.g. 'Can I get a coke?'
Also hate 'enjoy' and referrences to babies having 'filled' their nappies.

KittyMcFumble Tue 15-Oct-13 20:04:14

I too hate 'can I get a...?' and 'enjoy!'
I also hate no brainer, it's not rocket science/brain surgery and I particularly hate the inappropriate and over use of the word awesome

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 15-Oct-13 20:13:36

I hate "can I get" as well!

It makes me want to clip my ever so lovely friend round the ear when I hear her say it. Which is often.

I hate sentences that begin with "So"- as in "So I was in the supermarket and this woman said..." It's getting more and more common too!

I am on holiday in the US at the moment so I hear all of the above every five minutes. I may be responsible for an International incident very very soon! Watch out for me on the news!

Letticetheslug Tue 15-Oct-13 20:16:13

very much so....arrrggghhhh............

PerpendicularVince Tue 15-Oct-13 20:17:35

I can't stand 'think again'.

I refuse to realign my thought processes because someone disagrees with me.

<stubborn>

SPBisResisting Tue 15-Oct-13 20:18:00

Oh absolutely

Primadonnagirl Tue 15-Oct-13 20:20:48

At the end of the day
So, I'm like..and he's like
Sorry for keeping you waiting (M and S you are still insisting on this nonsense!)
hi guys

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 15-Oct-13 20:22:10

Touch base
Brain storm

I hate those as well

KatyPutTheCuttleOn Tue 15-Oct-13 20:22:54

Pre-planned
pre-prepared
pre-warned

are the ones I really hate, that use of pre- when there is no need for it.

Now, I must pre-warn you that I have pre-planned and pre-prepared to prepare for no replies.... smile

'Enjoy!' winds me up too. Enjoy is a transitive verb. It requires an object, or a gerund.

I hate 'the wow factor'. And 'very much so' and 'in any way, shape or form'.

Bettercallsaul1 Tue 15-Oct-13 20:26:05

I'm not keen on "tantrum", used as a verb!

Rhythmisadancer Tue 15-Oct-13 20:26:09

"I'm good". Why aren't you "fine thanks" like an ordinary British person??!
