"Back in the day"
Meaningless. Specify a stardate or a decimal time point or shut the fuck up.
Hate it hate it hate it
Like being sorta-nice means they don't have to give an explanation for something, especially in work.
Stop beating around the bush, you're attempting to give me an order.
Make yr case and I'll consider it you presumptive twat.
When used to ask you to do something, does my nut. "Do you want to give me a lift?"
Seems to be used dozens and dozens of times a day in the office by absolutely everyone, and in every instance could be replaced with a single world like 'for' or 'so'. Just seems lazy.
"to my mind" instead of "I think" ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
I fucking hate it.
No fucking shit...
and in particular "chillaxing"
Is a good shout.
where people refer to bits of work as a "piece"? As in "Jimmy Bollocks is working on the database this week while Janet Starfucker handles the budget reconciliation piece"
I hate that use of the word piece.
If not, totally unacceptable.
and to be honest I'm not really sure it'd be OK even then.
or a call. "Can you take this case on?". It is not a case, it is a fucking email with a mundane query on it you fuck.
not for me, clive.
"on a regular basis"
you mean regularly, clive.
by people who aren't Method Man in the 90s.
Massively gaining in popularity of late. With shitehawks.
Special exemption clause: If written as en pointe, I'll let you off a beating.
yeah, popular with kids who are still saying 'on fleek'. and 'nandos is THE ONE'. also SOME BOY.
along with all other unnecessary portmanteau words.
Get the fout
Frequently done by DiS-types, it irks me.
I always assumed that was the case anyway.
it's johnny foreigner and los campesinos
saves me so much time every day, you wouldn't believe.
all of them
'childbearing hips', 'womanly figure', 'ladylike' - ughhh. all tied up in conceptions of how women SHOULD be, hate them all.
office speak like 'going forward' and 'action' as a verb
'for fuck sake' instead of 'for fuck's sake'
Always used by people who clearly do give a fuck.
irritates the fuck out of me
Shut the fuck up fuckhead.
why on earth would you be telling me if it wasn't
= someone who arrogantly dishes out loud criticism and really can't fucking take it if anyone gives it back.
