Just find it irritating

Why?

To the moon and back is a measure of distance.

Love is not measured in distance.

I find ones about the running up click habits of mice worse.

It's almost as irritating as the newly-ubiquitous 'I love the bones of her'.

MadameCholetsDirtySecret Sun 02-Apr-17 21:44:27

Yep it's just another of those annoying grandiose statements that mean nothing.

It's sick making.

As is 'making memories'

Its better than 'Love you to death' - I mean, is that meant to be a good thing?

Ha ha

Yanbu.

I hate 'love you lots like jelly tots'. Fucking pisses me off so much.

I thought that the phrase came from the book about the rabbits.

It's not even that far - about 477000 miles. The Proclaimers must have walked further than that by now.

The stoic I don't know why I just do. It's just a bit sickly I guess.

statetrooperstacey Sun 02-Apr-17 21:47:15

It's from a childrens book isn't it, but yes icringe a bit when I read it, only ever see it on Facebook tho !

Gardenbirdy Sun 02-Apr-17 21:48:10

Donald - YES! Me too! Mil says it to DD all the time and I feel guilty for how much it grates on me. It makes NO SENSE!

greathat Sun 02-Apr-17 21:48:58

Its from the story about the daddy nut brown hare and the baby nut brown hare. Its a lovely story :P

Gonzales27 Sun 02-Apr-17 21:49:48

Totally agree! I hate it so much , but now I've read the other replies I'm wondering I hate it?!? Can't quite put my finger on why it bothers me so much!!

OopsDearyMe Sun 02-Apr-17 21:49:56

Wow I think I'll go back to my unicorns and rainbows ..and r from this thread. Its an expression of love ! Get a grip!

ellesbellesxxx Sun 02-Apr-17 21:50:52

I love it because it's from "guess how much I love you" but "love you lots like jelly tots" urgh hate that one!

ComputerUserNumptyTwit Sun 02-Apr-17 21:51:08

YABU.

histinyhandsarefrozen Sun 02-Apr-17 21:51:14

I hate the phrase 'get a grip'.

SummerSazz Sun 02-Apr-17 21:51:26

my DD says 'love you to pluto' and back. That's 4.67 billion miles so I'll take that.

mrsclaus100 Sun 02-Apr-17 21:51:49

Better than 'I love you with all my heart' surely? I hate that one.
