Can We Conversate?

Tuesday, March 24, 2015
And other words/phrases that drive me up the freaking wall.....

No. Because "conversate" is not a word. We can chat, talk, converse but not if you are going to make up words.

"At the end of the day" - My ex boss used to say this all the time and although I really liked him, ahhhh shuuuuuut uuuuuuuup!!! You don't have to use this phrase to clue me in that your story is coming to a close. I get it.  I especially like when people add in "when it's all said and done" in the same sentence...

"Irregardless" - You know that it basically cancels each other out by adding the "ir" right? Never mind.

"Neither here nor there" - Well then where is it??? Just say it doesn't matter and stop sounding like a pompous ass.

"I apologize if I made you feel that way" -  I actually am guilty of using this when I am trying to be especially bitchy to someone. But "make no mistake", it means I take no responsibility for my actions and fuck your feelings. "Just sayin"

"Let me tell you something" -  This is almost always completely unnecessary as I can tell when you open your Dorito chute that you are about to tell me something. But thanks for the warning.

"Work hard. Play hard" - I see this in online dating profiles all the time. What do you mean? What I picture is you killing yourself at the office all week then jetting off to Vegas for a weekend of strippers and blow.  It's stupid, stop saying that.

"I, personally" - when you start with I it kind of goes without saying, does it not? I didn't think you were talking about me but thanks for stealing a second of my life that I can never get back. "Me. personally" is even worse.

"Wow. Just wow." I can't believe how many annoying words and phrases there are. Is it just me or are you guys easily annoyed too?

  1. there was this hotshot asshole at work who thought he was the most brilliant thing to ever walk through the doors (because he had is "MBA" <-- god, i hate these dillholes) and he used "irregardless" while speaking. i laughed and then said: i guess your MBA classes didn't teach you about "irregardless"?. he stopped talking to me after that LOLOLOLOLOLOL

  2. This post reminds me of Office Space. So many people say dumb things. I tend to tune them out.

    1. Lol... me too until I can't and my head wants to explode!

  3. Someone said irregardless in a meeting the other day and I looked around the room in horror to see if anyone else noticed!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  4. Ha! I say a lot of these - especially at the end of the day and that's neither here nor there. I have a vocabulary full of quarters and I don't mind spending them. LOL

  5. all of these. hate. In the workplace I also despise "let's circle back" "piggy-backing off what you said.."

  6. I know several people that use irregardless.... drives me nuts! So I started saying disirregardless to be a smart ass!

    1. Omg... LMAO... that is awesome! I love you!!!

    2. Another thing that drives me batty... is that Downy misspelled their line "Unstopables"... I can't buy them for that reason alone! Or maybe I'm seeing something wrong.... lol

  7. All I can say is hahaha yes girl yes! Hit the nail on the head!

  8. I like the title of your blog ...and "work hard, play hard" LOL!! Can't stop laughing your blog!

  9. I probably hear "at the end of the day" every day. People say that in court all the time. I say some of these I have to admit "work hard, play hard" is something I think i do quite well. haha HOWEVER ... "conversate" and "irregardless" will get you put on the shit list in 2.5 seconds lol

  10. Irregardless is annoying. I don't get annoyed by many phrases, i just shrug it off but some can get annoying.
