Top 10 Most Annoying Phrases

To the list of the Top 10 Most Annoying Phrases, I'd like to add "The fact of the matter is...." Obama, I'm looking at you.


Most definitely

To the list of things I'd like Obama to stop saying, I'd like to add prefacing his sentences with "Look,...". It's as though he thinks, until he said that, his audience was just examining their boogers and only now will they spare a few watts for thought. C'mon man! Actually it doesn't bother me but I feel like it maybe turns off some people who might otherwise listen more to him. Okay probably it's just conservatives. Okay, strike that. I would like for him to say it more, and really draw it out. Their turn to suffer! Suck it!

I was going to say what Eric said about Obama saying "look," but of election memes it's only third or fourth on the list of things I'm sick of hearing, the top easily being "[some guys name] the [some blue collar job]", and number two being "the Republican brand."

"Now, understand this..."

I think people are wrong about "shouldn't of". I think it is best written out when pronounced that way as "shouldn't've" It is a pronunciation/accent issue rather than a word choice mistake.

I find "Top 10" lists quite annoying.
