What’s the Most Annoying Phrase You Hear?

Annoying Phrases

Several years ago I wrote about the results of a Marist College poll of the most annoying conversational word or phrase – which are really nonwords – to about 1,000 US residents. Then just the other day I saw the 2014 results of the same poll. Here’s how they compare:


Whatever Whatever
Like Like
You know Literally
Just sayin Awesome

With all due respect

I’m sure they missed some; is there a word or phrase that really gets to you? If so, please share it in a comment…

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post often! And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well. They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don, http://www.randolphmase.com. On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!

    I do not like the expression of “No Problem”, instead of saying “Thank you.”
