@BudgieHammocjsBananaSmuggler Is this a phrase you hate or are you talking about the topic of this thread?
I actually did read the other thread about dp phrases people hate during an argument and it inspired me to start this one so to speak. Slightly different question however.

Hasn't there literally just been another thread on this?
I'd hate to hear the phrase 'you're fired' if it was directed to me. Would also not be keen on 'shall we get a divorce'. Other than that, most phrases are ok with me!!
(I'm not keen on 'touching base')

"You just do you"
We are bombarded with infuriating misplaced reflexive pronouns all over the place - "Can I send it to yourself in writing?" etc. and then some utter dolt has to invent an even more annoying phrase that needs a reflexive pronoun but doesn't have one.

"ODFOD". (The acronym as much as/as well as the phrase).
Also its sister phrase "FFS". Both of them just designed to make the writer feel all jaunty and acerbic in the manner of Fiona out of Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Any question with "obtuse" in it, framed as an insult. Ass if it wasn't directly pulled from the Shawshank Redemption. Trying to seriously pass it off as a wise or original remark as if we all haven't seen the Shawshank Redemption and its clever use of the word "obtuse" from 1994 onwards, is taking the piss...

Ah yes birdshit, "ducks in a row". It struck me as inspired choice of phrase the very first time I read it in connection with a LTB thread in 2006 over a DH who had burnt the toast/forgotten to put the bins out, but 3647637774 uses later it's lost its originality somewhat.

My DS corrected me that I should say "On Point" MrsPelligrino He thinks if I was going to be as naff as all get-out , I might as well be hung for a sheep........
My DMum has a magazine called "Canda" they have a gift/giveaway page and always put "Up For Grabs" . It makes me wince .
