    I just want to go forward and touch base with you about the issue at hand, because it's coming close to crunch time... and at the end of the day, let the cards fall where they may... but I don't want to be held accountable since I have alot on my plate... I swear I heard it all this week.

    I'm going to "add some color" here and point out that people who overuse cliches really don't "think outside the box."

    "that being said" i got so tired of my boss saying this during meetings i counted one day and he said it 17 times.

    i also agree with LittleBitey on "it is what it is". when someone says that it makes me think they are too lazy or afraid to try and change something and will just accept things as they are.

    "That being said" is awful, thegweed. I also can't take "thrown under the bus".

    I don't mind "it is what it is" so much because it's a pretty useful way of ending the direction of a conversation that is either over or shouldn't be taking place in the first place.

    However, the worst are the cliches that try to be real sincere and wisdomish.

    'It was like/I was like...' - then WTF happened then if you gone and completely forgot??

    Some clichés will only apply to complete wastoids and dirty-hippies, they come-down to work on their 'tude-kits.

    To me, the biggest one of all is..........

    "I know, right?"

    My counter to this is letting the person know where it came from, and I researched it, is "Mean Girls", the movie. So fun to tell some guy that he is using a phrase from a Lindsay Lohan movie. It drives me as nuts as the word "like" being inserted between every other word.

    This reminds me of the phrase 'you know..' also inserted between every other word... I think it is primarily an English thing, but it makes me want to strangle the person doing it...

    Being this is a bike thread:

    the bike was 'point and shoot'.....

    the handling was laser quick.....

    both are almost as annoying as 'pulled the trigger' (mentioned earlier)

    Clearly you work for P.H.B.

    One that I really hate is "bleeding edge". What's wrong, "cutting edge" wasn't sharp enough for ya?

    I'm gonna have to call bs on your former co-worker, Cornfield. That's lame of him, bro. Oh well, it is what it is, and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. You should be totally over it.

    Don't forget about 'paradigm shift'. Not sure if that one's still around or not. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.

    Don't forget about 'paradigm shift'. Not sure if that one's still around or not. Makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.
    There's one I haven't heard in a hot minute. WTF is a "hot minute" anyway? Is it like a sexy N.Y. minute?
    One of my favorite new government buzz-phrases is "kinetic military action"; i.e. "we're not going to war, we're just implementing a series of kinetic military actions".

    Folks say one of two things when they are trying to justify spending money they know they shouldn't:

    1. you only live once
    2. you can't put a price on a memory

    Making a memory, meh. Translated that really means "put it on the credit card".

    Really? I hear it around her in the DC area a lot from the younger crowd. Hell, I go home to my town of 556 people (Jefferson, SD) and I hear it.

    Kid's in the snowboard shop got stuck on dank one year as in" and then we went and ate some taco's, they were dank!
    Every time they used the word I thought of a damp fetid basement corner. Drove me nuts.
    Last season they used "in a minute" as in "haven't been to town in a minute."
    in a minute= a very long time.

    hang out in the garage working on bikes.

    Yes, along with all of the other horrible man-isms. Bromance, manscaping, blabbity blah blah blah. Its all a bunch of crap that some mooks who couldn't change a tire made up. I blame bud light advertisements.

    Just thought of another thing that gets my goat... (not that)... (I love goats)... I would just love to be interviewed on a news or current affairs show and have the interviewer ask me to characterize something... WTF!!?? I would look blank and leave shaking my head.
