"Very Collectible"...Yes It Has Been Collecting Rodents For Years...
Most of them did, just think about it.....
Damn, reading this thread makes me think we've all turned into a bunch of grumpy old men.
Get off my yard!
AWESOME most often followed immediately by PREFECT especially noticeable from young waitresses.
Yes! Also “Exspecially” - drives me crazy. There is no X people!

Think the spelling is bad now?..wait 10 years and see how bad it's going to be.
Texting..shortening of words/phrases, essentially creating a new language.
By the way, what does MEH mean?
I ain't shoot nobody ….
"for what its worth" I really like the saying....
"from the Department of Redundancy Department" maybe I'll change my signature to that you know like wearing a belt & suspenders
i was going to comment on 49coupe's post with the same thing. every 20 something idiot i work with ends every sentence this way. makes me want to grab them and say " YES.....YES , I KNOW WHAT YOU"RE SAYING "
every manager where i work starts a new sentence "now...moving forward" while telling us the new policy of the week
They have to ask because they do not know themselves what the fuck they are saying.
When I was growing up I was taught that when someone thanked you for some thing or some deed the proper response was "You're welcome". Not "No Problem". Where in the hell did that come from?
Commonly heard on television and in the movies.
Maybe the Calvary will show up.
It’s the Cavalry dam it
Another one is how people say foliage.
Foil -age they say
Dumbness is everywhere
“No problem” has replaced “You’re welcome”
Basically--- when not needed.

How about cashiers that cannot stoop to say thank you.
"Here you go'' as they hand you change. Yes, I pay cash!
"Take a chill pill" Iv'e found it only makes the person angrier.
When someone says"No Problem" to me my wife hits me before I can ask what WILL cause them a problem cause that's what I want to do. nowhati'msayin?
Wow. Six pages of old guys (or maybe young guys with “old guy attitudes”) bitching about how people talk.
Catch phrases are a matter of translation.
Perfect for restoration = looks like it went thru a crusher
Mechanically good =body is swiss cheese
Restoration is 95% complete = be prepared to start from scratch
Usable = for a boat anchor
Immaculate....apart from = list as long as your arm
Don't want to sell, I'm going to restore it = surviving relatives sell it for scrap metal after the funeral
Recent respray to freshen up = will need complete paint job
Fully restored in the 90s = needs complete restoration
I know what it's worth, I watch the TV auctions = surviving relatives sell it for scrap metal after the funeral
Want to kill brain cells? Watch the movie, "IDIOCRACY"
"because it has electrolites"
Really, it’s approaching the communication break down spoken about at the Tower of Babel
Nails on the chalkboard when people start out their sentence with "I mean"...
Well, yeah, I kinda figured you meant it or you wouldn't say it....damn!
That's no kidding, 31 V.
And we bitch about it because most of us here have a great respect for the past and the way things have been done for years and years. And then these clever morons come along with bright new better ideas that seem to indicate a lack of respect for the past.
There's a reason things have been done the same for a long time. Mainly because people have tried different ways and eventually found what works.
The fork goes on the left...
Not in the glass... moron.
My wife and I used to laugh about to newest catch phrases and overused buzzwords.
Back then, it was stuff such as...
"Crisp tender "
Lately I've heard...
"Woke" aware of the bullshit
"Hangry" angry because you're hungry
Moan. Please just shut up. LOL

One thing I notice a lot of these days is up-talk. It's mostly women that use it but men are catching on to this trend also. I don't know, it just makes you sound less credible or unsure of yourself when I hear it, especially in a newscast or speech.
Car for sale.........."Just testing the waters". WTF does that mean?!...So, you're going to sell it if some fool offers ridiculous money for it?
Yes, totally sick of “Awesome “.
