To be fair the milk and chocolate milk are right next to eachother, but it’s probably wise not to get them mixed up.

Politicians saying "Let's be clear....." at the start of a sentence.

My step daughter is the worlds worst for this, she will say each variation of the above about a hundred times if telling a story.

In football there are two that drive me mad:

 

1.  He’s shot from range.    That could be short range, long range but it’s just commentators trying to be cool.

 

2.  They are back on terms.  As above it’s lazy nonsense.  It could be equal or unequal terms so just say back on equal terms.

 

Drives me insane!!

My wife does this. ****ing irritating as **** ?

 

Other irritants off the top of my head...

 

”Super” anything. Super excited, super buzzing....**** off you *****. 

 

Young folk that are ‘literally’ this and ‘literally’ that. Cretinous *******s. Had a lassie in the cab last week tellin her pals she was ‘literally literally no happy like’. I genuinely thought about smashing my cab into a wall at high speed, just to see what she’d literally say.

Absolutely this. Hate it. 

 

Also, halfwitted co-commentators using the phrase “the keeper just about does enough there” when in fact he has done enough and kept the ball out. Just total bollocks.

Isn’t arithmetic just a branch of maths though? Could be wrong.

Well done AR for including one of my pet hates. People gratuitously inserting this word where it doesn't belong.

For the reason that it makes sense and is correct.

Definitely "reaching out to" instead of "contacting" for me.

 

"Moving forward" instead of "From now on" or "In the future".

 

Also, the American habit of adding an "of" to a preposition. "He was inside of a box". No!!! It's "He was inside a box". End of story. :)

Also the use of the word ‘revert’ totally inappropriately, usually in email. When you ask someone a question that they don’t know the answer to and they respond with “I’ll check that and revert”. Total nonsense.

Snooker is a sub group on it's own of annoying phrases

 

"He needs snookers"

 

Now I do know that technically that is what they say BUT it's not 'he needs snookers". It's he needs extra points from foul shots.

 

Rant over.

A snooker is when the ball you are attempting to hit is blocked,if your not happy go get pooled.

So "needing snookers" is not what a player needs. He need points for fouls. Which can happen without snookers.

"a cheeky...." when subject matter is not only not cheeky but something that could never actually be cheeky.

 

Football related - the whole player in his back pocket nonsense.  The comments hours after the game (on here in particular, seen it plenty times!) "as he still got *opposition player* in his back pocket?"..... aye, very funny pal.
