And like.... And like.... And like....

"At the end of the day" was voted the most annoying cliche'. Other nominees were "like," "with all due respect," "bottom line," and "pushing the envelope" by the Plain English Society.

I'm not sure if at the end of the day, at the end of the day is the most annoying and overused cliche'. At the end of the day and when you get down to the wire, I think it is something else.

We have to prioritize what words we use and tighten up our speech. But I think this group should try to see the glass as half full and be optimistic instead of feeling trapped between a rock and a hard place.

The English language is constantly changing and growing. OK, so may be not for the better but, maybe we move the chains and start again from first and 10 and keep pushing forward toward the goal. All good things come to those who wait. We have to think out of the box when it comes to reforming the english language, since so much of the nizzle shafizzle comes out of pop culture and MTV. One step at a time, we can make it. Rome wasn't built in a day - remember that. Because when in Rome, we must do what the Romans do.

Hey y'all, thanks. I just had to touch base with you on this topic. Keep up the good work. Parting is such sweet sorrow. Ashes to ashes... all that glitters isn't gold.. it's no skin off my nose. Just remember to watch your mouth and not act like you were raised in a barn.
