Tain't much, that which I am tired of. Just a few phrases that are over-used so much. If words could ravel and turn ratty and worn, these several phrases would.
Come on media and TV talking heads...really now. Can you change up (that's one phrase right there I am "suddenly tired of" ) your phrases for a little refreshing change please?
What do I mean? Well, the almost every other sentence from TV channel to channel (news) you hear "At the end of the day". Over-used by everyone including friends and local newspaper pundits. Please. Just say another phrase. I know if you try there is one out there. As "later" "Finally" nothing at all?
Then ya gots yer "going forward" thingy. Please don't Announcers and Talking Heads. Please, say something else. What did you bunch of folks say before that phrase and the others I will mention here started up about ten years ago--- along with the "at the end of the day" horror. I think the first time I heard that, it was a sports personality/coach, some such. Oh, did it EVER catch on.
Lastly but not leastly...I just wanna not hear "Gone missing". Got lost? Disappeared? Why use a British turn of phrase? Sounds better? More fancy? To me, it sounds affected. Get over yourselves media writers and speakers. "Change it up" to another way instead of always saying the exact same set of words year in and year out.
I know what you're thinking. Don't listen. Usually I don't unless it is something I need to hear that will affect me. But I will hear whatever talking they choose to say--- however they choose to say it--- with their key catch phrases, unfailingly. These are the most often heard by me. I know there have to be more. Just at the end of the day, going forward,
