    Least favorite sayings

    And some overused words, I guess. 'Been there, done that', was cool the first 200 times it was used, startin to become more rarely used now, I think. 'It is what it is'. Where did that come from, and what does it mean? (other than 'I can't explain this, but feel as if I should say something that sounds contemporary and you might accept this as an explanation for my shortcomings?!) 'I'm your worst f****n nightmare!' Heard that so many times in Oklahoma, but haven't heard it here in Colorado for about 7 years now. I started usin it out of nostalgia I guess. People just looked at me like I could be, so I quit that. My least favorite word of all time that should be banned from the language is 'closure'. Never heard that much until after the OKC bombing. It was on the lips of all the media and anyone even remotely connected to that tragedy. I don't think the people usin it even really knew what it meant, but it made them sound educated on the TV if they got interviewed. 'You have a good one!' Used too much by convenience store clerkettes. I break them of it by always sayin, 'Yes I do! Thanks!' Are there any y'all don't like or find particularly grating?
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    How about "24-7" or "You go girl!"? Another one that gets me is "She went missing". How in the heck does someone go missing? "I feel your pain!"....how can you possibly feel my pain??

    Mostly the ghetto talk I hear in dept. and grocery stores gets me going. Like the "baby daddy" and "baby momma" crap. Also, "My baby 1 years old" or a better one I heard not too long ago "My baby 12 month years old".

    I also don't like the "it is what it is" saying, I mean really? really? let's see... what else could it be?, "It is what it aint?", uhh... I don't think so.

    Depends on what your definition of is, is.
    Yeah, that "My baby daddy" line cracks me up. It's like it legitimizes their no commitment relationship. She can't say "my husband" so this is how they describe their lifestyle. Thing is, even white women are using the term. My son had a license plate cover custom made that says, "I'm da baby Nana" because we often make fun of that line.
    Another one that gets me is when they preceed a description with the term "Hella-" meaning it's WAY cool or WAY bad or VERY good looking as in. "She's hella gorgeous" or "It's hella cold outside" or "This sandwich is hella good". Now, how dumb does that sound? Probably about as dumb as; bummer, groovy and far out sounded to elders in the 60's.

    Oh boy...

    not words:
    "stick-to-it-iveness"
    "guesstimate"

    not true:
    "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"
    "Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right, it's not the end."
    "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results"

    Sure, anybody have a baseball bat?

    The one I hate the most as of late is "like" used every other word by today's youth.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?
