Listography: Top 5 Phrases That Drive Me Crazy

So I was all set to do a post about the Superbowl...but let's be honest, I am as close to completely ignorant about football as it is possible for one with a sporty brother to be. I was really proud of myself today for being able to correctly inform my mother which two teams were playing this year.

Anyway, I decided, unless something ridiculous like the national anthem fiasco happens again, I should probably not project my ignorance onto the internet. And then I found this week's Listography post over at Kate Takes 5 and figured that was definitely more my thing than football.

1. "You know what I mean/I'm saying?"
I don't watch a lot of MTV and this, almost single-handedly, is the reason why.

2. "No Homo"
I think the reasoning here is fairly obvious.

3. "Anyways, like..."
I swear, "anyways" is one of my biggest pet peeves. I literally flinch sometimes when people use it. Grammar is near and dear to my heart. Also, "like" in any unnecessary context...though I'm very very guilty of that.

4. "So, why aren't you going to med school right away?"
You would be surprised how often I am still getting this question, and I won't get into it, but I want to shoot something every time.

5. "As you should already know/have learned..."
Mainly, when said by bosses/professors followed by something so obscure or unrelated that, well, maybe I learned it but I sure as shit don't remember so thanks for clarifying with the addendum that I should feel bad for not having recalled immediately.

  1. I feel like I say number three a lot. Sorry.

  2. I hate it it when people say like too! Especially in youtube makeup tutorial with girls with ridiculously high pitched voices

  3. This post was awesome. Haha! There are a lot of phrases that annoy me too, and I would re-post this myself, however, I think I would just get annoyed while thinking about all the silly things people have said to me. :)
