Yep. and later in that same conference call, webinar, or meeting, some idiot wants to "circle back" and see if there are any questions.

I hate this uppity hipster talk.



and don't forget the key take a ways from that deep circle diving back

CLOSURE is pretty annoying. Seeking justice seems popular with leftists.

Today on my conference call the presenter used this phrase at lest 2 dozen times

“At the end of the day....”

And “wheelhouse”

"This, that, and the third".

Drives me nuts.

And pretty much all cop-talk: "I exited my vehicle and approached the subject".

No, Einstein, you got out of the car and walked to the person.

Who the hell "exits" a "vehicle"? And what subject were you approaching? Western Civ? Calculus?




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

Ooh—now if we’re going to get into copspeak, I still remember some of my favorites:

“Gold-colored” (which was fine because we don’t want to say a real gold ring was seized during a search because it might have been brass, and we couldn’t tell the difference) morphed into “gold in color.” But because that was so neat, then we could no longer just say a “blue plastic cup,” it had to become a “blue in color plastic cup.” But bestest of all was a piece of “clear in color glass”: No, “clear” isn’t a color; if the glass had no color, then it was a piece of “colorless glass.”

And to indulge myself about just two firearms related terms:

“Mag well” in reference to a funnel to help with fast reloads, as in, “Is there a mag well for the P320?” Yes, there is. If the pistol had no magazine well, there would be no place to put the magazine. Any firearm that uses detachable magazines has a mag well.

“Failure to feed,” meaning failure to chamber. “Feeding” is what the magazine does. If the magazine pushed the cartridge up to where the bolt could start pushing it into the chamber, but the cartridge didn’t go into the chamber, then that was … Let’s see some hands … a failure to chamber. The magazine did its feeding job just fine.

Airline passengers deplane. They are always prepared with their flotation device in case of a water landing!

Do we detruck or decar?

For water landing (or is that a water watering?), be advised that those seat cushions sink. That's the best kept secret in the airline industry.

Another one that really gets me going is when an LEO refers to all the rest of us who are not LEOs as "civilians". What the hell does he think he is? Chopped liver? When I hear something as stupid as that come out of someone's mouth I lose all respect for them. If you are not in the military, you are probably a civilian. A cop is defenityly a civilian.

Why does this insanity persist?

Not a phrase, but the improper use of the term "fitment" just drives me nut. Not just on various forums by members, but worse, many websites glaringly use the term on their front page. "Fitment" has nothing to do with proper fitting of one part with another of your firearms. Roll Eyes

No but there once was an island that "DePlane, DePlane" appeared every so often.

Two grate on my nerves..
1) When I say "Thank You" to get a response of "no problem".

2) Being addressed as "dude".

"Have a good one." What ever happened to "Have a nice day?"

To date, I have been able to resist the temptation to reply, "My wife says I have a GREAT one!"

I don't know how much longer I'll be able to hold out.

My current is "Ping"

Had someone tell me the other day "ping me later". After grinding my teeth for a second, I replied -

I doubt sending you 64kb of data 4 times will do either of us any good, as I'm sure it will result in 100% packet loss, so how about I call you later instead?

Same day, had someone ask if I would "ping" someone for them.. I said, Sure, what's their IP address?

The looks were priceless on both counts..

"Horrific" has become the new buzz word in news stories. A horrific crash, a horrific scene, a horrific assault, etc, etc. Please, find another adjective to describe something bad.

Not a phrase, a single word. Awesome. Seems like every young woman waitress, or that I deal with on the phone sprinkles the word liberally throughout her side of the conversation. Yesterday, I’m talking to a young woman from the broadband internet service we use. When I answered a question she responded “awesomeness.” I busted out laughing.

After I regained control she said, “Well, you don’t want me to be boring, do you?”

“No,” says I. “I want you to personify ‘awesomeness’.”

I really am sick of the word though
