This got to rank high up in my list of detestable phrases. "All said and done......", basically disregards whatever has been said and done. Just kena from my client but there are other phrases that just makes my blood boil.
"I dont disagree with you BUT". Oxymoron phrase used by pig heads.
"And so?". Blur phrase used by your associate who is fiddling with his handphone.
"And SO?". Condescending phrase used by pig heads.
"So how ah?". Desperate cry for help.
"So how?". You better come up with a solution phrase.
"I knew it!". You have just vindicated what I thought previously but I didnt want to tell you.
"I dont know". You're just buying time to come up with a credible answer after being caught with your pants down.
"What do you mean!". Can you please repeat it so I hear it right phrase.
And of course... "I TOLD you so". Asshole phrase.
Writing this post made me realize that I've been guilty of using some of these phrases. Actually, saying "Fuck it!", "You're bloody useless" and "Why you so stupid one" has better redeeming qualities than an ill disguised taunt. Everyone will feel better.
