  • "Having said that", "That being said", "You must understand", etc. So sick of this crap.

  • how about "went mising" ? As in "SHe went missing for 6 months". It used to be that we would say "She has been missing for 6 months". Went Missing doesn't make sense.
    And any phrase that includes the "F" word should disappear right now.

  • Went missing is a good one...very odd. Standing on line...shouldn't it be standing IN line?

  • Baby daddy.

  • Oh yeah, "baby daddy/mama" should vanish. I've said it before, but I think "I love me some (insert thing here)" should go away. I know there are more that bug me, but I can't think of them.

  • Oh, I also hate "alls" as in something like, "Alls I want is a soda." I HATE that.

  • Beyond the obvious racist, sexist and homophobic slurs?

    "That's retarded."
    "You people..."
    "baby mama/daddy"
    "aks" - is it really that difficult to say "ASK"???
