Your Most Used Phrases?

Mon Oct 13, 2008 9:43 pm

We were having a discussion in social education this afternoon about the phrases we use most often. Some lists were very humerous indeed  Smile

Pawsleykat's Top 5 Used - maybe overused - phrases are;


  • Oh Aye
  • Ram It!
  • Lol
  • Jordan is (insert emotion here)
  • Ooft


So come a.net... what are your most used phrases?

JG  Yeah sure

Oh yes, by far my most used phrases are

"Labor, Zippy (err Gene)"

and

"No this is not the IT department's help desk this is Labor and Delivery"

One digit off and they start babbling their computer problems to me, and then they do not believe me when I tell them they dialed the wrong #.

Ram It!

Oh my.

Quoting Cadet57 (Reply 1):

I am a bit perturbed that there was no phrase containing "wicked" in your top 5  grumpy 

My top 5 would probably be variations of:

"F*ck"
"Sh*t"
"Goddamn it"
"Son of a b*tch"
"Nice man!"

Those (excluding #5) are usually uttered when getting pissed off at work due to my computer being (at times) a f*cking piece of sh*t goddamn son of a b*tch.

#5 is probably usually uttered when someone mentions that it's 5 PM, and I can go home.

Haha, well, "play" is a somewhat loose term. I do go golfing a couple times a month, but that doesn't mean I get any better at it  Smile

I suppose swinging metal rods at little white balls (that's what she said - hey there's another one I say fairly often) is a good way to get rid of some stress. Or add some stress, depending on how I'm playing. So, yeah, usually add some stress.

By default, since it's my A.net signature, "... but I may be wrong".

The phrase I purposely utter most often: "Oo.. I was wrong".

"Put that down before you hurt someone..."

"No such thing as a bad brake under a good tire!"

"Why the f*ck did you write that up?"

"Why the f*ck didn't you write that up?"

And for when things are worse than any language can explain, the phrase "That's interesting..." usually applies.

When in Iceland, as a passenger in the front of a car - I mostly say either „Ohh, þessir stefnuljósalausu bílar nú til dags!“ (”Ohh, those indicatorless cars nowadays [annoy me]!”) or „Notaðu stefnuljós!!“ (”Use your indicators!!”) ”to” the drivers passing us... Icelanders are very rude and stupid in the traffic and most often don’t use the indicators. Annoys me also as a cyclist. Idiots!

Driving related-
"_____ empty lanes to your left and you STILL want to ride MY back bumper!"
"It's a beat-up 20-year-old station wagon. How fast does it look like it'll go?"
"Hang the f*ck up and pay attention, asshole!"
"Ooh, looks like happy hour came early today!"

General purpose (negative)-
"Oy" (mild disgust and/or dismay)
"Oy vey" (serious disgust/disbelief)
"Well f*ck me runnin'!"
"No way!"
"Where was your mind?"
"Here's another engineer I wanna catch in a dark alley some night" AND "Just how high were they when this sounded like a good idea?" (usually said in reference to GM side-terminal batteries, faux lug nuts that screw onto real lug nuts, and the substitution of thermally unstable plastic for metal on parts that have to be regularly serviced, but occasionally used on other dubious and needlessly complex designs)

General purpose (positive)-
"Hel-lo"
"Get outta town!"
"Sweet!"
"If I were any more tickled, I'd wet myself"

There are probably more, but these are the main ones. Big grin

I tried that one a few times and was then not so politely informed that I had answered incorrectly. Or the question asked was rephrased and made a declaratory statement.

"What the hell was (s)he thinking?" <--- Usually said when reading cases or law review articles
"May the lord have mercy on your soul." <--- More entertaining than "Bless you" and it means pretty much the same thing.
