'get a grip' on here. There's barely a thread in AIBU that does not sport it

It's patronising at best.

Well most of the time it is justified. At least the ones I've seen are.

Oh FFS, get a grip.

I can only assume you fall into the 'For the love of mercy GET A GRIP' group of posters?

Well, they don't actually say it do they? It's typed.

Or 'man up'. Gawd who thought that one up? hmm I hear/read it all the time these days.

I don't mind 'get a grip' but you have to be careful not to over use it.

man up is so american to me, but hear it all the time. dislike

get a grip..don't mind makes me think it would be someone who wears a housedress to clean in and rollers. sort of a les dawson in drag type. "get a grip luv!"

Man up?!?!? Surely that'll upset the Feminism/women's rights people...
