People say funny things, don’t they? Thought I’d list a few of my pet hates here…
‘Hello’ to everything (I do it, it really annoys me!)
‘I’m nice and warm’ – so you’re an axe murderer but you’re warm, and apparently you’re nice?!
‘For me…’ for example, ‘for me, this fish is a bit bland’. It comes up everywhere, especially on cooking programmes.
Here’s one I like from Whites, a comedy series on BBC2 at the moment: ‘Don’t tell your mum’. It’s like Jamie Oliver’s ‘whack it in the oven’. Love it (possibly because it’s Alan Davies who I saw a few weeks ago in the street).
What are your favourite/least favourite sayings?
