  1. Office Speak

    “Let’s table that and we can sync back up offline, just ping me. I do want to revisit this though, as it’s crucial to ongoing synergy as we move forward.”

  2. “That’s Just Who I Am”

    “That’s not a reason. That’s an excuse. Behavior can improve, you choose not to.”

  3. “You Should Be Like…”

    “I hate when people compare me to someone. My parents do this all the time, so irritating. I don’t care how many books X, Y and Z reads.

  4. “We’ve Been Trying to Reach You About Your Car’s Extended Warranty.”

    “I get these calls every other day. I sometimes pick up to say ‘what kind of car do I have?” and then they hang up.”

  5. “That’s Nothing.”

    “…when I tell them something only for them to turn it onto a competition and say something worse that happened to them.”

  6. “Why Don’t You Smile More?”

    “Resting b*tch face is more efficient.”

  7. Conference/Gathering Presentation

    ‘How’re you all doing today?!? C’mon, I know you can answer louder than that! HOW ARE YOU ALL DOING TODAY?!’ Instant resentment every time.”

  10. Talking Up Teenage Years

    “Someone saying to a teenager ‘These are the best years of your life!’ I am in my mid 40s now and most people my age remember high school as horrible and awkward. The more appropriate thing to say is “Hang in there kid! I promise life gets better. Just get through adolescence the best you can.”

  11. “There’s No Such Word as ‘Can’t.’”

    “Try striking a match on a bar of soap and tell me that again.”

  12. “Your English is So Good!”

  14. “They’re You’re Family, You Have to Love Them.”
