Ending an email 'Kind regards'. Especially the type that might tell you something like you've got to work 10 days on the trot. It 'fair rips my knitting', which is another one. 

 

Never use “regards” at the end of an email. One slip of the finger and it becomes something altogether different and wholly offensive.

The use of the term 'snowflake'. 

 

Anyone who uses it makes me assume they're probably uneducated and right wing.

I hate the saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." It's not even close to being truthful.

 

"The fact that..." I hear this all the time now, it's not needed, e.g. Hearts recent slump is due to the fact that they have lost several key players. Just say Hearts recent slump is due to them losing several key players, there is no need to say "the fact that".  It's started to creep into my language, much to my annoyance.

The fact that you said it here is testament to your post.

It's only a game. Meet someone after a heavy defeat and they say that to cheer you up. Feck off. 

People who say that are not football fans.

I thought the genuine answer to that question was always, "Big Jock" whether it was rhetorical or not.

when a keeper makes a save and the commentator says "he just about saved it" or "he just about got a hand to it" 

no he DID save it / get a hand to it, there is no "just about" in that scenario.

I sent a few emails at work today whuch I concluded with 'kind regards'. This isnt a phrase Ive ever used before but seen it on this thread and thought Id give it a whirl. 

 

Can I just throw in 'acca' and 'presser' into the hat along with Morgans previously mentioned 'footie/footie'.

 

Kind regards.

People who say they "killed it" or "smashed it".

 

When folk say "you've won the internet today".

 

Arseholes who use yourself and myself instead of you and me. When I am in power the abuse of the reflective pronoun will be punishable by death.

'Away from home'

 

Eh?????????????  You're either at home or you're away. 

 

Tautologies in general wind me up;

ATM machine' is a favourite

together at the same time,

me personally (gives me a headache :D)

I did it myself

 

Other notable mentions: 

Over exaggerate

The sun is hot today (that genuinely does baffle me, cause at 5778k I'd reckon it's hot every day)

It's got to be somewhere... well aye, unless in the highly unlikely event of disintegration, yes, you're correct!

"Can I ask a quick question?"

 

I usually hit back with "was that it?" Then ignore them

 

Pricks who feel the need to shoehorn "in terms of"  into every sentence.

Nonsense.

What do you say? 50 quid or 50 quids. And Its a £50 pound note not a £50 pounds note. 

 

Anyway, Merry Christmas!!!

When you've been looking for something for ages, getting totally to your wits end and someone asks.....'where did you last see it?'.

 

If I knew that I wouldn't still be f*****g looking for it!!!
