  • Usually I tell them ,"Ok, cut to the chase--what is the point?'". That may be rude, I know--but that seriously drives me up the wall!

  • It drives dh nuts when I say "long story short" because it isn't all that short but trust me, the long story is a whole lot longer than the short version, lol.
