Sayings and words

Evening followers, welcome to todays entry entitled 'Sayings and words' a post in which I list a mere few of the sayings and words which raise my temperature and get me punching newborn children.

Business sayings. Things like 'In the loop'. Things like 'brainstorming'. Things like 'moving forward' and 'pushing the envelope'. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT. YOU APPEAR TO BE USING ENGLISH BUT YOU'RE NOT MAKING ANY FUCKING SENSE. Somebody surely sits in an office all day thinking of these moronisms, parrotted in offices throughout the globe. I propose a contraption be made which is strapped to the groin of every office worker in the world. If a single nonsensical phrase or word is used, a swift punch to the bollocks from said contraption follows. This would soon eradicate this criminal abuse of English.

Americanisms. Sorry to the US followers, but some words and sayings that have been invented across the Atlantic should never have been allowed to leave. I've 'gotten' something. You've what? Gotten? What the fuck is this shit? That is not a word, it's a lazy way of saying you have received something. Another one is 'You do the Math'. It's Maths. As in MATHematicS. Why is this so difficult to grasp!? The final Americanism has got to be this. PERIOD. Why do some people insist on writing this after every point as though it suddenly gives said point irrefutable validity. I know there is a full stop/period because it's there at the end of the sentence. It's a dot at the end. You don't need to fucking tell me it's the end of the sentence.


These, however, pale into insignificant when compared with the following word, used inappropriately fucking all the fucking time. The word 'literally'. EVERYBODY USES THIS WORD ALL THE TIME. WHY WHY WHY? 'I literally walked to the shops and bought some milk'. So, you did walk to the shop and you did buy milk? WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SAYING LITERALLY. 'I literally just arrived'. So you just arrived, did you? Yes I fucking thought so. You people deserve more than death.


Literally.

  3. Words are meaningless. It's the concepts behind them that are important.

  9. Funny stuff, but seriously true, hate it when people over exaggerate something with the word literally or over the top values. Like how I spilt something, and it was like a cup worth, and the person said I spilt 2 gallons, how that works out I don't know.

  14. Dont hate on us Americans. Even if we use slang, the point is we got the point across.

  15. The examples you used to the term "literally" aren't correct at all. But your last "literally" was the right one. It's used to express that you're not using a figure of speech.

  19. Your rage inspires me! I get so aggravated all the time but just have to keep it suppressed... of course being 6'6" and 300lbs, if I got visually mad at everything it would be kinda scary... lol

  21. I've heard plenty of non-Americans end a sentence with "full stop," so it isn't just us. ;)

    I agree with you about "literally," though. "I literally blew up at him." Really? You literally exploded into a thousand pieces?
