    Why do we have to pick on apples and oranges? Who came up with that? :waiting

    How about:


    Chevys and Fords?
    Nuts and Bolts?
    Coffee and Tea :red
    Jupiter and Pluto?
    Captain Crunch and Lucky Charms
    Vacuum cleaners and trampolines
    Movie Monsters and Philly Cheesesteak? :dunno


    See! there are a ton of better phrases to use in place of apples and oranges!

    Personally, I like the movie monsters and philly cheesesteak one the best .... so let's change it to that (unless someone here has a better saying) :red

    I cant stand the phrases... "jumped the shark" and "Perfect storm" anymore.... not really a big deal in the grand scene of things. Just sort of my own annoyance.

    At the end of the day, when all is said and done, as long as no one threw you under the bus, it's easy peasey lemon squeezey.

    When the womens say "mani pedi" I want to swallow my tongue. Well.. that's a little extreme. But please. Just say the two extra syllables, it's not going to kill you.

    LOL

    Why not just type "ha?" It's one less letter and had always meant funny. Why do we need LOL?

    I despise LOL. That should have been retired years ago! It reminds me of my mIRC days in the mid 1990s. Plus every time I see it my mind instantly converts it to "Land O Lakes".

    "Just sayin'" or the even dumber "I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'".

    "Cool story bro"
    "Come at mr bro"

    Doesn't bother me if you use them or avoid them. Six of one, half dozen of the other...

    I've got a friend who says "at the end of the day" over and over in every conversation. Doesn't really bother me, but I'm sure it would get annoying to some.

    Even worse is when an oft repeated saying is incorrect:

    That's so ironic. (No, a funny or incongruous coincidence is not ironic)
    I could care less. (No, in fact you could care less)
    I literally died (No, you figuratively died. If you had literally died you would not currently be annoying me)

    Okay, get off my lawn now.
