The Oxford University Corpus recently (from telegraph.co.uk, linked by Lifehacker) released a fairly unique list of the most “irritating phrases” at this moment in time. With all due respect to a similar BBC article, I personally think* that these ten sayings absolutely win out at the end of the day, 24/7, as terms that simply shouldn’t of been used in communicating. Writing and speaking correctly is not rocket science, but if done poorly, honestly: it’s a nightmare.
*I added the “think” to this phrase . . . one of my pet peeves. By the way, did it work? Do you truly feel irritated?
