Irish curmudgeon KateTakes5 is having a rant over at her Listography this week. Phrases that drive her crazy. These are mine.
Two youths talking.
First youth: ‘I was standing at the bus stop, innit?’
Second: ‘Did you have to wait long, innit?’
First: ‘No, man. It came straight away, innit?’
Second: ‘Cool, innit?’
2. ‘Whose round is it?’
Especially when it comes from my lips. It means my drinking partners haven’t twigged that I’m thirsty.
3. ‘I’ll get back to you.’
No. You won’t. You lying sack of s***!
4. Any sentence in which the word ‘Action’ is used as a verb..
…such as, ‘Leave it with me. I’ll action that straight away.’
5. ‘I’m just having one more, then I’ll be home.’
aka My wife’s least favourite emittance from my lips
