I don’t plan on running for president anytime soon. However, if I did, and was elected, things would be a whole lot different around here. This post is not meant to get into anything political AT ALL, rather, it’s a way for me to blow off a little steam regarding a bunch of things people say WAY TOO MUCH that drive me crazy. As there are approximately eight gazillion things that bother me, I will share a partial list, say, every Thursday.
So, without further ado, here is my list of catch words, sayings, and phrases that will be OUTLAWED or simply GONE, should I ever become president. A word of caution, you most likely use one or many of these………
Ducks on the pond.
You hear this a lot in baseball. When there are runners on base, they say there’s ducks on the pond. Stupid.
Yous, as in, “I’ve got something I want to tell yous.” Wtf?
Between a rock and a hard place
Overused and tired.
Killing two birds with one stone
Putting the cart before the horse
In the loop
Keep me in the loop. No keep me out of the loop please.
Keeping it real
You hear this a lot in business. “So, what are the next steps?” DO your #$%##&* job!”
Dumb, dumb, dumb.
