"It is what it is".
I HATE THAT EXPRESSION!
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one.
But "it is what it is"
is what it is
you know what I'm saying?
I absolutely hate "it is what it is.."! That's what someone says when they don't know what to say, but feel they should say something (nothing). My old boss (at an ex-great job) used to say that all the time. I wanted to smack him.
Adults who say "like" alot annoy me too. Kids get a pass.
"It is what it is" is bad...a verbal habit that puzzles the Hades outta me is the way people pronounce words that begin with or contain an "str" series. The s is pronounced as if it's an "sh." Straight is shtraight, but "stamp" is unchanged.
ESPN younggins seem to be required to pronounce it so, or risk early retirement, I suppose.
Our PA at Nats park has yet to figure the X is silent
This time last season much of the board was commenting on how many times Riggleman would say "Well there's no question about it", in response to (leading) questions during interviews that weren't really questions as much as stating the obvious. Now Davey's doing it.
This thread reminds me of a phrase you hear in England all the time now: "At the end of the day..."
Funny posts! I'm making a list of the annoying terms. Calling over some freinds and Nats Extra (the drinking game) will be born tonight!
I can't stand the use of "absolutely", "grow a business", or "whatever". (Just the English police in me)._____
Let's go Nationals!
