Walked into a hostile situation this morning. I decided to be the sacrificial lamb, no matter the cost.   Asked raging lady if their was an office where we could have a conversation.  

This morning while Mrs Vig and I were at work, maintenance man at apartment complex came by to replace our garbage disposal. The new unit works great.   I sent an email to apartment manageme

Oh I forgot one that I am sure to hear 50 times at my 10AM coming up:

 

"At the end of the day......"

 

Don't you ever want to just go over to these people and give them a Stone Cold Stunner in front of everyone in the room?

Which reminds me, I hate it when a store clerk tells me to have a good day. At night.

For all intents and purposes :aggressive:

 

At least that's a bit better than "For all intensive purposes" which comes up occasionally.

 

Great thread!

 

 

Yeah that's when you take a quick sip of coffee before your laugh hysterically and say what a child under your breath.....

... to the tune of ...

 

As in, "My checking account was overdrawn to the tune of $300."

 

I don't think there is a tune that goes like that, and I'm not crazy about the word "tune" itself.

 

Is this a generation-specific or a regional colloquialism?

And that reminds me... it also bugs me when people say "out of," when referring to where someone or something is from. Combine that with the word "outfit," and I completely lose my mud.

 

"We ordered some new windows from ABC Window Company, an outfit out of Tallahassee."

I despise it when people put stupid suffixes on things. Like:

 

Adding -gate to the end of another word to make it sound scandalous, after Watergate.

 

Adding -holic to the end of another word. There is no such liquid as workahol, chocohol or shopahol.

 

And arguably the worst, which needs no explanation... -palooza.
