Spot on with the "like" comment cobbadog. Only a few days ago I was pointing out to one of our grandaughters that she had used the word "like" seven times in as many sentences.

NB That was stated correctly, and not to be confused with her having used the word like so many times in her sentences. :huh: Read this in the way they use the word "like" and I'm sure you'll understand what I'm on about with this bit? :lol:

Wouldyou, It was Bob Hawke who often said "At this particular point in time"

Now, don't any of you try to ascribe any political leanings to me as somebody did a couple of years ago on this forum when I commented on a political leader.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

?Up here in Sydney, "too easy" seems to be taking on a life of its own in conversations with customer service staff at least. Too easy is the response to any order at a cafe, and last week the I dropped my car in for a service the young lady who took possession of the car used the the "too easy" expression at the start and end of every sentence, just as a kind of punctuation mark! Too easy.

Ok I will take the risk with a politically based comment. :whistle:
We had a Mayor here in the Manning Valley and he ALWAYS used the term "the wider community". I was never sure if he thought that the community were all too wide and needed to loose weight. Even if he tried to use the word "broader" that too could be insulting.

Expressions come and go and we all used words our parents rolled their eyes at. We just copy our friends and do not really think about it.

I remember when my grand daughter was about 18 I said something to her and her immediate comeback was "whatever". First time in her life I had ever raised my voice to her and she was old enough to understand the the words ignorant arrogance. Only time in her life grandad had brought her to tears. Never heard "whatever" ever again.

Had a supervisor once we called "Plimsol". Short for Plimsol Mark on a ship, as whenever he was given a suggestion or complaint he standard answer was, "I'll take it on board".

Had another we called Mirrors" as he was always going "To look into it".

Nick names can be so very true and hurtful some times. I once worked with a bloke they called 'candles'. His nose was always runny and he didnt wipe it off too often.
Fungus was another because he would grow on you.
Pa was known as Bozo as he often clowned around.
