And a "trendy" restaurant favorite from your server: "Not a problem!" I was hoping it wouldn't be - I ordered it right off the menu you gave me and I didn't ask for anything special.

"No problem" has become an epidemic over here too. There should be nothing problematical about a straightforward pepperoni pizza, and if there is you're in the wrong line of business.

You don't walk up to an ice cream stall expecting problems either, but you get the same assurance.

The reality is, at the end of the day, it is what it is! Have a good one.

This one is becoming so popular I just want to puke everytime I hear it "I Just Wanted To Reach Out To You"
or "Can You Reach Out To" and then this get's on my last nerve a person that say "You Know What I Mean " after every sentence.

Ha. I have a business friend who ends every sentence with "Does that make sense." But he says it as a statement, not a question. ie. "people need to do things this specific way does that make sense." with no pause and said as a statement.

A similar post would be the various terms people have used to describe marijuana over the years. I believe my kids say "weed" and look at me crazy if I used the term "grass", let alone "pot". My favorite term and the one I always try and use is "reefer" as an homage to the movie Reefer Madness and Cab Calaway.

Except I guess these days with legalization in many states, people call it by the actual strain; Kush etc. That is way beyond me. Acapulco gold is long gone I guess

The "I know...right?" is the phrase that is making my dentist money, cause I grind my teeth whenever I hear it.

A Monty Python sketch is writing itself here, Ian.
You're dining alone in a pizza parlor and have been handed the list of toppings. The server comes back to "check on you".
Server: "Have we decided yet?" (what's with the 'we' thing when you're dining alone???)
Ian: Yes, I'll have the pepperoni pizza please
Server: Not a problem...oh wait, that is going to be a problem.
Ian: Why is that?
Server: Sorry - my bad, dude (cool lingo and expressions). We're only offering plain cheese and tomato pizzas tonite. The cook is still in training. He can do a plain pizza but he hasn't learned how to put toppings on yet! Can I get you another glass of wine while you're waiting?
Ian: I'm drinking beer...

“Totally” is another misued word that grates on my nerves.

“I am totally going to the beach this weekend.” (As opposed to going only halfway to the beach?)

“You should so do that! And you should take your dog”.

“Totally”

So the person can either totally take the dog or take just half of the dog? It’s mind numbing.

The one that gets to me is when you order in a restaurant and the waitress says: "Sounds good". Whoa!

Or when you pay the waitress in cash and include a tip, she says “I’ll get your change”. What she’s really saying to you is “I’ll keep the change”. Cool

She keeps saying it though, every time!

that's different in New York Doug where the waitress says: "Do you NEED change."

Speaking of "We're with you every step of the way", there are at least four different law firms using that in my local TV area. I guess that's better than "We're going to take your retainer money and never return a phone call."

And of course, use "air quotes" around your message. That'll set them straight.
Whatever. Buh-bye.

Me I never liked "to die for". How pathetic. But "pathetic" can also be overused.
