Fixed Income.

I keep hearing it from seniors. No senior lives on a fixed income; they get automatic COLA.

If your talking about working people, then someone who is not allowed to work overtime is on a fixed income.

The other phrase that raises my blood pressure is "Ya undrstan wat i'm say'n?" Yeah, baby.

"I know, right?"

like
you know
um
any modern words that mash others together, e.g., "foshizzle". What the fuck does that mean? Why do the software writers, who are in their 30's and supposedly adults, continue to use words that make them sound ... less than professionals.

I could go on, yet I would probably be labeled a prude.

"Business speak" is the only thing that actually gets on my nerves.

"We'll take this offline"
"I'll ping you after the con call"
"We can leverage our in-house talent"
"Let's go after the low hanging fruit"

Shit like that.

It's insulting to me, because the speaker obviously thinks very little of my intelligence. Why else would they presume I'm impressed by nonsensical bullshit like this?

I've read entire emails that went on for 3 pages, when a single paragraph could have conveyed the exact same message. Some folks have forgotten how to communicate ideas. I just want to grab some of them by the neck and say "Stop trying to sound smarter than you really are, and speak like a normal fucking human being".

When people use the word "flavor" to describe a variety of anything but food. Such as:

"Durr what's your favorite flavor of AR? Hurr!"

It's a damn rifle, not a fucking ice-cream cone!

That also reminded me of what one of my girlfriends says when shes ready to leave and it annoys the living hell out of me!!!

"Color me gone"

I had a headhunter calling me who would always say, "I wanted to reach out to you" instead of a simple "I am calling you to..."

Utterly useless.

"Give back".

"Price point"

I do understand that language and slanguage both are constantly evolving/devolving.

I am sure another dozen examples will pop into my head before the night is over.
Link Posted: 11/1/2009 1:04:09 PM EST
"boss", especially when my actual boss calls me "boss". I have essentially taken that title from him he no longer has my respect.

I hear it all the time from people as a replacement for "sir", as in "can I help you find something sir?" or "have a good day sir", they can leave out the "sir" just don't substitute it with "boss".

The word "said" to refer to something previously mentioned as in, "need pics of said wife".
I guess people think it makes them sound smart.

"Begs the question", because it's so rarely used properly.

"Sick" used to describe something as badass.Hate that fucking word.

Oh couch it Subnet. You're burning too many cycles on this.

"Yeah but still."

Drives me fuckin' nutty. You're basically saying "Excellent point, sir; I have nothing with which to retort. Nevertheless, I will cling to my irrational belief."

LOL... sounds like you and my wife work for the same outfit.

A couple that I hate: "form factor". If you want to say that laptop A is smaller than laptop B, just say it's smaller. Don't say "it has a smaller form factor".

Also, "pre-planning". I thought you prepared for something by making a plan. Carrying out that task is called "planning". Is "pre-planning" what you do before planning? Is there a pre-plan that comes before the plan? "Co-conspirator" bugs me for much the same reason.

"To die for" as in, "This salad is to die for."

There are very few things in life worth dying for and those that exist are much more important than salad.

Needs plus the past participle of a verb.

As in, "the house needs cleaned," or, "the dog needs fed."

It's not fucking right.

And "paradigm," and especially "caveat." Every time I hear some fuckhead douchenozzle use "caveat" in a meeting I want to hurl a chair at them and scream "It means "warning," you chestbeating, window licking, knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, Neanderthal!" It doesn't meant "piggyback" or "add to."
