    “huck”, “dude” – all irritate me. Don’t know why and don’t care,

    Huck and dude are words dude, not phrases. Probably not a massive mystery as to why you dislike them.If the word “Huck” was banned tomorrow people would still huck their bikes – they’d just call it a different word, and you’d still be bitter at your innability to do it, dude.

    Wonder how long it’ll be till some one says “All Mountain”.

    For example, “back in the day” (what does this mean?), “huck”, “dude” – all irritate me. Don’t know why and don’t care, but why not share yours?

    most annoying on here is “pulls up a chair”
    oh, no, I’m wrong, it’s anything to do with “kicking back doors in”, but that may now be bannable…

    “To die for” WTF is that all about

    Any sentence that has the word “like” inserted at inappropriate points

    Any sentence ending with “innit”

    Early doors

    Better than sex……. if that’s the case then you’re doing something seriously wrong!

    ‘Swop out’

    ‘At the end of the day’

    The use of the word ‘fresh’ to refer to anything other than fruit or air

    ‘I ‘sourced’ this, that or the other’

    Those are just my top four…

    ‘For sure’ as used by just about everyone somehow connected to Formula One.

    I think this was started by Schumacher, who could have been forgiven as English isn’t his first language. However, it seems that all those whose first language is English are saying it now. Drives me nuts

    I am sorry, that vacancy is no longer available

    from our manager at a project meeting yesterday;

    “we’ve got all the quality rocket fuel we need, now it just needs pointing in the right direction”

    Is that a reference to Korea? Aa metaphore you hadn’t thought through? A sly hint we should all be looking for jobs elswhere at AWE?

    “after a robust 360 degree appraisal we are going ahead with blah blah de blah”…………eh?

    Its a catch 22 situation

    Catch 22 is an amazing book by Joseph Heller. “There was only one catch, and that was catch 22”. As an example, in the war, you didn’t have to fly bombing missions if you were crazy, but Catch 22 said anyone applying to be stood down from bombing because it was driving them crazy obviously had to be sane 🙁

    I particularly hate management crap.

    Recent ones used in my organisation are:

    Blue sky thinking – (eh?)
    work stream – (instead of project or study)
    Thought shower – (a minor brain storm?)
    360 degree feedback – (bollocking with the opportunity to give your side of the story)
    Feedback sandwich – (bollocking taking this form – praise/bollocking/praise)

    WTF is a “Thought Shower”???

    actually, it appears some on here are annoyed by non-literal metaphor
    ie buttery not applied to butter and dead people getting annoyed
