Default Oxford compiles list of top ten irritating phrases

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...g-phrases.html
A top 10 of irritating expressions has been compiled by researchers at Oxford University.
The top ten most irritating phrases:

1 - At the end of the day

2 - Fairly unique

3 - I personally

4 - At this moment in time

5 - With all due respect

6 - Absolutely

7 - It's a nightmare

8 - Shouldn't of

9 - 24/7

10 - It's not rocket science

They've left the most irratating one out: "You know what i mean?"

Heres one:

When people say "I could care less." Its I COULDNT care less. If you could care less, then you actually care a little.

or this one too:

"IRREGARDLESS". Its just "regardless" as in no regard.

Silly silly peoples.

what bothers me,
is people who write letters,
and, they start with a little sugar,
and, then they add some grease,
just to get the whole thing real slippery,
and, then they add a lot more salt,
than is necessary,
and, then rub it directly in the whole mix,
so it wounds

They've left the most irratating one out: "You know what i mean?"

They also left out the outbalanced booleans like "No! No!" wich adds antagonism instead of creating something new aside inconsciouness repetitions.

They Say

I keep hearing peolpe saying "They say this the best one to get" "They say you should do this etc" blah blah, but when you ask who said they do not know I think it just a phrase to validate there are correct.
