    Oh! This is a weird, specific one, but I HATE on the Today show, when they tease a story and then say, "But first, this is Today on NBC."

    But first? Huh? It's just weird. "But first, these messages," maybe. "But first, a word from our sponsor." But not "But first, this is Today..."

    Also, I never got at the end of 20/20, when Barbara Walters would say, "And remember, we're in touch, so you be in touch." I could never figure out what she meant by that.

    Wolf Blitzer annoys the piss out of me. Saying "the best political team on television" every five seconds during election coverage. "And to our viewers, you're in the situation room." No, fuckhead, you're in the situation room, I am in the living room.

    Edit: w00t! 600 posts! What do I win?

    She's actually saying "We're in touch so you'll be in touch", but her well-documented (SNL) pronunciation problems make it hard to tell.

    Ohhhhhhhh! Well, that makes more sense! I have great respect for Barbara, but I always did wonder how she made it so far in the business with such a prominent speech impediment.

    oooh! and when people say, in a dismissing manner "oh, you wouldn't understand" How am I supposed to understand if they don't explain it! :steam:

    and "well, that's just because you're young"

    I always like to say that my IMHO is "in my honest opinion," not "in my humble opinion." My rationale: "my opinion is rarely humble, but always honest."

    Ohhhhh GOD yes!! And you know, I have NEVER, EVER not understood whatever it was, once I forced them to tell me I think really it's often that they're more worried you'll be shocked or judge them, than that you literally (sorry cafe!) won't understand. Dammit, most people can understand anything if it's explained to them! And nobody's shocked me yet either!

    ugh- and So what? as a response to something- it's unintelligent AND uncaring! *grrrr*
    People and companies say that sort of thing to make it sound cutesy and more acceptable. Look, you're a number. Got that ?
