Words/Phrases You Wish Were Retired

Recommended Posts

I saw this topic on another board I visit. Drew some funny responses, thoughtful. Thought it might work with our friends here.

I nominate retiring "Adult in the room." You know how it is used. Supposed to mean some kind of restraint on someone. I don't see it happening. Besides, adults CAN and sometimes DO condone and enable behaviors. Faulty assessment of what being an adult means.

"Adult in the room!"

COULD mean a person with poor judgment above the age of 18. "Heavens to Betsy!" Have you EVER known anyone who fit that description?

Could we at least use, "Heavens to Murgatroyd?"

That's "Up to 11," silly. 110% is a pat response athletes give reporters.

A lot of people say . . . .

Correlation: "Everybody says that," or "They say that."

When Matt was young enough so that I could manipulate him, I would often say that if he didn't do such-and-such, they were going to call Child Services on me. One day, he said, "Daddy, I have a question ... who is 'they?'" That's when I knew I could no longer bullshit him.

Might not be so disingenuous, in the PED Era...
