Just that really. She is staying at the moment and everything is okey-frigging-cokey. I know I'm being intolerant and unreasonable but it's really irritating....

You need to take her 'okey cokey' and raise it to a cheery 'okey dokey pig in a pokey!'. Out-annoy her. It's the only way she'll learn.

Or okey dokey artichokey.

I have a friend who says "Coolio" grin

My dp says 'okey cokey' I absolutely hate it. Makes me want to strike him blush

Nevercan Sat 01-Mar-14 08:44:36

Maybe she doesn't know she does it. Next time she says it say you are only allowed to say that 3 times a day lol

Oakily dokily smile

Loving the suggested responses!

I have a friend who used to say 'or whatever" at the end of every sentence. Or whatever. Whether it made sense or not. Or whatever. So, in order to ensure her continued survival, I gently and lovingly trained her out of it.
or whatever...

My colleague says okey cokey! It also makes me want to commit murder.

Glad I'm not alone.

Just start putting your
Left leg in
Your left leg out
Do the okey cokey
And shake it all about

Continue with all body parts, she will be so perturbed she won't want to stay again.

SavoyCabbage Sat 01-Mar-14 09:16:59

Simply give her an electric shock every time she does it. Train it out of her.

diamondlizard Sat 01-Mar-14 09:17:34

lol i think its quite sweet really

My otherwise quite sane and reasonable ExH has his mobile pre-programmed so that when he types OK in a text it gets sent as "Okily Dokily".

He knows my views on this, in some considerable detail.

Reminds me of Pauline from The League of Gentlemen oakey cokey pig in a pokie ! Does your sister in law like pens??

MintyChops Sat 01-Mar-14 09:37:32

Perhaps okily dokily punchy facey would cure her? So so glad you all hate it too, thought I was being really intolerant!

weirdthing Sat 01-Mar-14 10:16:36

You need to show her a clip of Pauline from the League of Gentlemen. That will shut her up. Ask her is she an egregious person.

Cool beans.

MintyChops Sat 01-Mar-14 10:25:00

Ha ha ha, these are great. At least I want to laugh at her now instead of chokily dokily-ing her....

eeetheygrowupsofast Sat 01-Mar-14 10:27:28

Oh dear God I say every single one of these - except cool beans which is surely far far worse?? <clutches at straws>

Crowler Sat 01-Mar-14 10:30:29

"Cool beans" should be criminalized. My former manager at a major consultancy used to say this in customer presentations. It was cringe-inducing.

YABU

Just because she thought of saying "okey cokey" before you, is no need to feel envious.

Join in and say "rightio" as well

figgypuddings Sat 01-Mar-14 10:36:17

yanbu
She has forced 'Okie from Muskogee' into my head. <passes laudinum>

I used to work with a guy who said 'okey dokesssss' every single time he spoke ... made me want to throw my chair at him.
