    Why do people have to say "at the end of the day" before they make some kind of point? It gets right on my ******* tits.
    The other really annoying saying is "know what I mean?" after every sentence. If I don't know what you mean, I'll ask you.

    Reminds me of a Christmas lunch at Pizza Express.

    The scene:
    -Table of 12 rowdy and hungry people
    -Slightly dopey waitress

    She takes the order from the last person, who orders a chicken/something pizza. She doesn't quite hear the correct order so the person has to state the item again (and again).

    She repeats the order and he says "well done" (for finally getting it right).

    20 minutes later, the order arrives.

    The last guys pizza has burnt chicken on it... :tocktock:

    Another that winds me up is when people use verbs as nouns e.g. 'a new build' or 'a big ask' - nooooo!!!!!! It's a new BUILDING, or a LOT TO ask. For f**k's sake you ignorant dipsh!t, learn the language or f**k off to somewhere that doesn't have English as it's first language! Like America!

    And breathe...

    I can't get it in a picture I don't think, but imagine using a metal cutting disc in an angle grinder without a guard, and letting the index finger of your left hand stray onto the disc(the nail bed and 1st knuckle), it cut me right down to the bone in less than 1 second. Didn't hurt one bit until I put it under a tap, that sting like a ******, so i shook my hand and splattered blood all up the walls and ceiling. In the end I wrapped my finger in toilet roll and electrical tape, and got back to work.

    I had an unfortunate encounter with a "Yankee" screwdriver a few years ago.

    This is the point of entry (my left thumb):

    The point of exit was my thumbnail.

    It is now 'hard' under the skin and only really bothers me when I'm button mashing on an Xbox 360 or PS...

    Americanism's are slowly creeping in to English and it really annoys me. Like people who say things like 'thats it, period' no, thats it, full stop, or 'talking smack', what the hell is that suppose to mean (and before I get a whole load of people saying it, yes I know what it means but thats not the point!)? My favorite Amercianism has got to be 'in summarization' surely thats just in summary?...

    thats the most ridiculous thing I ever heard, "put it in his mouth for cleanliness" a human mouth has more germs than your arsehole.

    One thing we used to do in meetings, usually with consultants or project managers, is have a game of buzz word bingo. See how many they try to ram into a sentence. Always had a laugh in those meetings.

    One that really bugs me though is "To be honest....." You know the last thing they are being is honest..!!

    Why do people try to sound more important by saying "myself" and "yourself", when they just mean "me" and "you"?

    One does not need to refer to oneself in such mentioned common ways.
