    I constantly hear the term "team" to refer to coworkers, which drives me crazy. It's not like we have the chance to win anything.

    "It is what it is."

    Most annoying to me: "I just wanted to reach out to you." What's wrong with "I thought I'd call you"? :fp:

    Not sure if this applies to the topic at hand, but does "let me ask you this" drive anyone else crazy?

    When you ask someone about how it's working with Dave, and they reply, "Well, Dave is Dave", that means Dave is an asshole.

    I worked in a company where the bosses would say "....pick your brain..." as code for "i need you to figure this shit out for me cuz i'm stumped"

    I hated that shit in ways I couldn't even begin to explain. When a friend (who worked for the sister company) used that expression to ask me for advice years later i made the most intensely violent threats that ive ever heard in my life. never heard it again though :D

    Circle the wagons is one that's always bugged me. What really drives me crazy are the people who will say 100 shiny words when 10 regular words would do.

    "Just a heads up..."

    That one irritates the fuck out of me.

    "Let's pull ourselves together...."

    It feels high school and means a sudden pointless meeting.

    fuck 'em if they can't take a joke
