I hate it when total strangers say "Cheer Up" or "smile it might never happen". I am F'in cheerful thankyou - just because I don't have a big cheesy
on my face don't mean I ain't cheerful !.
Also the American phrase I cannot stand is "Y'All" - even when I read it on here it makes my skin creep.
I hear you. (another phrase I hate)
My manager always comes out with that crap. When we have meetings we don't listen to what he's saying just listen out for the phrases, then we all try not to laugh when we hear them.
Favorites are :- "You have to see the bigger picture " with hand gestures making a circle
Also - "The walls are built - we are just waiting for the roof to be put on" with hand gestures too.
There must be a book of all that "management speak" crap.
