I know you have been wondering, are there any phrases popular today that really drive that gal, "New Diva on the Blog" over at "SayAnything", crazy. It may even have been keeping you up at night. Well, I will end your suspense here and now. Yes, there are actually three phrases that when uttered are similar to nails on a chalkboard to me. They are ever so slightly less annoying when coming from the age group that coined them in the first place; teenagers. However, when spoken by adults it just doesn't work for me. They are, from least annoying to most annoying:
1. "It's all good."
2. "I know, right?"
3. "My bad." This one is hands down the one that sticks in my craw the most.
It's true that "those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones", and I am not perfect and was once a teenager with my own annoying phraseology. In fact I may have even said numbers 1 and 2 a couple of times, NEVER number 3. Every time I do though, I inwardly cringe, remind myself that I am, in fact, a college educated adult, hope no one noticed, and vow to like totally never do it again, o.k. ? ;)
