    Annoying cliches of the working class

    A friend and I were talking the other day, and we thought it could be possible to make a pretty good list. Think of what are some of the more common, often meaningless phrases you've heard from your co-workers, or from your clients/customers. An explanation for why it's annoying would be better.

    Part of our growing list of annoying cliche's. Some are spelled incorrectly to emphasize the phonetics of it I tend to hear.

    How are you doing?<--Nobody means this. Don't bother asking/answering.
    Git 'er done<--Just shut the ___ up.
    Yer killin' me<--If you don't shut the ___ up, I might kill you.

    Answers to: "How are you doing?"
    Another day, another dollar!
    Another day in Paradise!

    Answers to: "Whats up?"
    Well, I cain't tell it.
    Not me!
    If I knew, I wouldn't be here!

    Must be nice!<--Used always to imply favoritism by boss, or that the person is rich/got it made, whatever. This is so constant it makes my head hurt sometimes.
    ...Does anybody else feel like Congress simply bailed themselves out? Isn't that what they really mean by a bailout?

    Donald Trump says that. "Time is money".

    He also says "You're fired".

    I hate that.

    "when's the rain coming?" i wanna go home

    "in the AM gentlemen" see you tomorrow

    "*yelling*WOOOOOOOO" i'm a jackarse and i wanted to yell woo really loud for no particular reason (those are the worst guys to work with)

    there's more we say just too related to the job. we have a lot of things we request the new guys go and get, like toenails, skyhooks, board strecher, henweigh, stuff like that.

    I like alot of Aussie slang phrases but I can't mention many of them in here. Some goodies:

    Poets Day - Friday. P.ss Off Early, Tomorrow's Saturday
    Tradie smile - a tradesman's bum crack showing over his pants
    Off like a bride's nightie - to leave quickly
    Blind as a welder's dog - drunk or lack of observation
    Touching cloth - need to go to the toilet
    Budgie Smugglers - mens bathers

    My all time most annoying question posed at any time is,,

    "Are we having fun yet?"- I have no idea what else to say so I'll just say this.

    Or, how about:

    "Is it hot enough for ya?" <---No, genious, it isn't, but thanks for asking! Not like you could anything about it anyway!
    ...Does anybody else feel like Congress simply bailed themselves out? Isn't that what they really mean by a bailout?

    Ha, ha, yeah, triangulate is pretty good. Ha, ha. How about a chinese star the shape of a triangle embedded in their fore-heads.

    Not that they may be cliche, but the old classics of:

    FUBAR

    and

    BOHICA

    I was bored, tired and really couldn't think of much else.

    "Drink is the curse of the working class." Hmmm? No! It's, "Work is the curse of the drinking class!"
