Aloha Friday: Phrase Pet Peeves
A couple of months ago, I began noticed something that B said "It is what it is" a lot. To be fair, she probably wasn’t saying it *that* much, but, after I noticed the phrase, my brain would note every instance of it. It wasn’t only B, though. I began to note other people saying it. It seemed that everyone was saying "It is what it is" all the time. The more I noticed it, the more the saying annoyed me. I can’t explain why it annoys me, it just does.
This isn’t the first saying to draw my ire. Years back, "Not!" was the catchphrase bandwagon to be on. I didn’t join in, though. In fact, I would cringe a bit inside every time someone said "Not!" ("Cool beans" also, but that didn’t seem to be uttered as often.)
My Aloha Friday question for today is: What phrases annoy you?
P.P.S. For a bit of fun, try my other Twitter Application, Rout. It’s a +F in Fun!
