Irritating Phrases? I Got Your Irritating Phrases Right Here.

 Some researchers at Oxford came up with a list of what they consider to be the irritatingly overused phrases. Their top ten?

1 – At the end of the day
2 – Fairly unique
3 – I personally
4 – At this moment in time
5 – With all due respect
6 – Absolutely
7 – It’s a nightmare
8 – Shouldn’t of
9 – 24/7
10 – It’s not rocket science

These phrases are indeed tired and worn slick. But I can think of several that are much more “irritating.”  Off the top of my head, there’s:

“License and registration please.”

“Does that itch?”

“Ms. Winfrey is here to see you.”

“Yes, I’m going to finish my fries.”

“Is this your dog?”

Any suggestions of your own, dear readers?
