have seen this expression a lot recently, are the users under 13. surely it's not relevant to apply to a woman. yet another shite expression doing the rounds,
what expressions give you the rage ?

I hate that phrase, I’ve no more loyalty to women than men and I’ll always put myself (or my family) first.

I hate “going forward” instead of in future or from now on.

HTH it's generally sarky and I really don't see the point of it.

Oh, and putting ,no? At the end of a statement, that give me the rage!

Reaching outangry

It’s intensely irritating .

YANBU. It's often used when some bloke has cheated and the woman is blamed for it.

“Gives me the rage” instead of just “makes me angry.” Sorry.

To be pissed instead off to be pissed off

That ridiculous Lisa Armstrong kept wittering on about 'gurl code'

You left him love and he moved on. Shit happens

On a journey. No we're not on a fucking journey, we're at work. Even worse is being on a rich fucking journey. Or maybe I just work with illiterate arses?

Things that happen being a ‘journey’. Everything is a fucking journey. No it isn’t.

MerdedeBrexit Sat 23-Feb-19 08:25:35

Talk of "making" people do things, when it doesn't mean coercing.

My DH used to say: "I should have made you buy milk."

As far as I am concerned, "making" someone do something means coercing or forcing. Nobody makes me do anything. I don't mind being asked to do things such as buy milk, though.

Hate it. I have no obligations to women just because I'm a woman.

MerdedeBrexit Sat 23-Feb-19 08:26:23

We need to "have a conversation" about this.
A "rich" conversation is even worse.
YY to shiteness of journey.

“To be fair” I hate it everyone says it in front of every sentence

DameSquashalot Sat 23-Feb-19 08:27:58

Reaching out and any other corporate bollocks. Especially when used outside work. 😠👿

PlainSpeakingStraightTalking Sat 23-Feb-19 08:28:05

'borrow me' - borrow me a fiver

'gotten' - ffs this isn't Shakespearean England, language has evolved.

YouokHun Sat 23-Feb-19 08:30:32

@SimoneStrasser this is for you

Janedoughnut Sat 23-Feb-19 08:30:57

Process something. What happened to thinking about it.

UnperfectLife Sat 23-Feb-19 08:32:09

haha a 'rich conversation', I'm going to introduce that term to my vocabulary just to annoy people!!!!
Hate gotten too. It's wrong and so unnecessary. 'Got' is just fine.
