Pet peeves, bonkers that is!
“It is what it is.”
What the heck does that mean? I just don’t get it. It was what it was. It will be what it will be. Agh!
Someone (anyone) calling me “buddy.”
Get real. I am not (and never will be) your buddy!
“Each and every one.” Redundant and repetitive. Huh?
Christians calling non-Christians “lost” people.
Where did that phrase come from anyway? Is that Lost as in Jack, Kate, Ben, Juliette, Charlie and Claire—or as in King James English—or as in the wrong address?
Derogatory, archaic and degrading—not to mention alienating.
Labeling real people “individuals,” as the police, military and seminary graduates are taught to do.
Depersonalizing, dehumanizing and depressing.
Pet. Peeves. I have more.
