    My dad says that all the time. He also says "out of the millions of sperm, you just had to be the one to get through".

    There's a common phrase on TV and in white-collar circles here "going forward" - used at the end of many sentences. Bloody annoying.

    Often heard on mondays - "Did you have a good weekend?"
    Well, I wasn't here... so yeah, I'd say it was a pretty good weekend.

    Often heard on fridays - "I've had enough fun for one week."
    Sounds like you're going to have a boring weekend.

    To which I would reply, is that why you're talking to me now?

    "you'll get that on these big jobs"

    everytime we find something that's messed up, or something that doesn't quite work out like it shows on the print.

    i say it daily, it works with everything.

    there's also "woooooo!" which is annoying, guys yell it randomly throughout the day, usually the roof crew, i guess it's just to call attention to themselves cuz they're doing something badass.

    i use that one usually if i trip or almost fall off a top plate, or findy a shakey, not tied in, or icey/slippery top plate...lots of things can go wrong walking top plates.

    Re: Annoying cliches of the working class

    This one isn't so much a phrase, but it really pisses me off. In retail, people (who are not commissioned or not in a supervisor position) always talking about how sales are doing. Why should they give a crap? Does it feel good to know that a CEO might make another million dollars that year and if you're lucky you might get a $.20 raise? **** sales!

    I also hate these asshats who think they're so high and mighty because they're cashiers and they can therefore lookdown on the kid that pushes carts.

    Goddamn I ****ing hat retail. And I have to go to work in a few hours.

    Thanks a lot, topic creator.
    Do you wanna know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little... emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I knew your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?

    I know what you mean about alot of people who work retail.
    They just dont have the skills or personalities needed.
    They should be working at some nursery somewhere trimming shrubs....
    in some dark corner away from the public.

    Another thing I hate...we have a small store up the street with some genius HS girl running the register...

    dont try and converse with people when you are doing the money thing with me....you are counting MY change...so shut up and do one thing at a time.

    sweatin like a whore in church
    "Five senses; an incurably abstract intellect;
    a haphazardly selective memory;
    a set of preconceptions and assumptions
    so numerous that I can never examine more
    than a minority of them-never become conscious
    of them all.
    How much of total reality can such an apparatus let through?"
