Anyone who says they've been on a 'journey' when describing something which doesn't involve travel.

For example, the politician who describes their career as 'a fascinating journey'. The failed talent show contestant...'Im not sad 'cos I've been on one hell of a journey' etc etc

Auditors from a major supermarket who tell you how you should do things at your company but don't apply any of these standards to themselves. C*nts the lot of 'em.

People who say 'uni' instead of university. Somebody holding a packet of condoms and a Pot Noodle burning a can I go first stare into your back as you wait at the checkout with your trolley full. Seriously overdoing the term 'young people' during politically correct interviews with Bill Turdbull.

Repetition........from words or sentences on an advert ("My car needs a" being a casing point) to stupid sounds played over and again on radio or TV shows or even my old man going around in circles on the phone, repeating himself. It just makes me want to smash things to bits.

People saying "what I call" and then say a word that the whole world uses to describe something. This is today's and I am not kidding, when referring to the senior executive of an organisation the term "what I call the CEO" was used, unbelievable.

Agreed. Although thankfully, it's clear that you think this is because they are doing their dimwitted best to make the party and politics for which you dearly hold to heart almost completely untenable to the general public.

It's that isn't it?

This with bloody ginormous bells on.
Where the **** did this come from?
An IT guy in the office (now left the company, probably not for this reason, but a worthy sackable offence in my book) used to say arks or acks as the yanks pronounce it. I brought him up on it once. Asked him to say mask for me. Which he could. So I asked him why he couldn't say ask correctly. He took umbrage and didn't reply. I think he was just trying to sound "street". Git.

The more bullshitty aspects of the corporate world do annoy, that is true.

American border control officials. The unnecessary macho tough-guy image to ensure you know the US isn't a doddle to get into you know, what with the terrorists. And who gave them the right to pass judgements on passport photos anyway?

Eaglesfan1 20-01-2015 08:46 PM

Think it's been alluded to earlier in the thread but footballing clichés

EG.
"No easy games at this level"
"A real six pointer!"
"The no 10 role or in the hole"

The last one especially- you don't say a goalkeeper plays in the no 1 role, left back in the no 3 role or a winger in the no 7 role. Just say attacking midfielder FFS.

Oh and one last cliché

"If they appoint Tony Pulis, they won't go down." :D:D

Radio Adverts. Especially ones with young children who talk about things like complicated finance details, as if they are experts.

People who whisper on adverts.

Basically , adverts.

One for me is when an advert has a bit of success, they spin it off for the next few months and years into a whole family of characters to really milk anything that remotely got a reaction about the original advert. Compare the meerkat and that stupid ******* robot for confused dot com, thats you.

Yep, the BBS has gone into actual 'meltdown' on about 4 occasions.

Career laughers who will howl with joy at any mildly amusing comments from their "superiors" at work. They also display an obvious fake charisma to reel people in. Subtlety is the key, pooh nose, subtlety.

Spot on. It's almost as if the general public (ergh!) forget what the original concept message is all about, and the new direction metamorphosis into a whole new stratosphere of nonsense !

I'm convinced people are more interested in "collecting" meerkats rather than getting a competitive quote, or whatever that company does :hmph:
