They say some of a blogger's most popular posts are RANTS...well, when I saw this topic on CNN, I KNEW it was rantworthy.
Recently the Plain English Campaign in the UK conducted a survey to find out their readers’ choice for “most irritating phrase”. Here are the results, in order of "irritation":
1 At the end of the day
2 (joint) At this moment in time
2 (joint) Like
4 With all due respect
5 To be honest
6 Touch base
7 I hear what you're saying
8 Going forward
10 Blue sky thinking
Hmmmm...yeah....you know what? I have some more things that irritate me. Here is my short list:
1. The use of the word "irregardless." It's not a word, people.
2. Text language. I can't communicate with my daughter anymore.
3. Usage of "also," "too," and "in addition" IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
So, what irritates you?
