My sister and I were talking tonight and she called me out on saying “I know, right?” all the time. I realize I say it a lot, but I think it’s kind of funny. I decided that it’s my catch phrase. If I were a character on a TV show, it would be the phrase I’d say all the time, like “wait for it…” (Barney on How I Met Your Mother).
Do you have something that you say all the time that could be considered your catch phrase? Are your friends sick of hearing it?

I don’t know if this would be considered my catch phrase, but I have SUCH a bad habit of saying “JK” out loud and in conversation. Even to like, professors or people on the phone. They either look at me like I’m nuts, or just start laughing really hard.
My dad thought I was using a swear word. lol.

I always say “I’m on it… like flies on poop.”
It comes out more around family and friends but occasionally at work, but there it doesn’t matter because I teach 5 year olds and they think I’m hilarious even if they don’t quite get the joke.

Mine is a HIMYM thing… I do the high-pitched Barney… “What up!?” and then when I am super serious. “What. Up,”

LOL! These are funny. I wish that there was an audio option 🙂
I use “super” a lot. I am “super busy”, “super tired”, “super stressed out”. I feel like an action hero that think that they are super. No power. Just super.

Well I work with kids, so I say “poop on a stick” instead of cursing.
I’m also a Nor Cal chick, so I say “hella” in every other sentence… unless I’m working with the kids!!

@GaBGal: Sounds like something I’d do!

I say “whatev” a lot. I also use “donkey” quite frequently as either a noun or adjective…as in “where are my donkey keys?”

I don’t really have a catch phrase! If I could pick any to have, though, I’d be all over Barney’s phrases on HIMYM as well – “wait for it…” “Suit Up!” & “legendary”!

When talking on the phone I have a habit of saying “did I tell you”(since I love to gossip), and my FI likes to mock me.

i scuba dive and if you stuff up underwater you can die very quickly so above the water i have a very healthy attitude to trying something knowing that worse case senario it wont kill you

Hmm… I guess I always answer the phone (to people I know, of course) with a hearty, “HERRO!”
I also used to say “That’s so RANDOM” to just about everything in college, and my girlfriend caught on to it and said it all the time too. She worked for Garry Marshall, and he was making the movie Raising Helen (I think??? I forget what movie he was making) at the time, so there is this scene in it where there is a club that they go to a club, and it’s called “Club Random”. That’s ’cause of us! Hahaha 🙂

I always say “Yea, no”. So if you ask me a yes or no question, you get both answers 🙂
“have you seen my keys?” “yea, no I haven’t”
“did you get gas in the car while you were doing errands?” “yea, no gas”
“did you close the balcony door?” “yea, no I didn’t”
I think its a family thing because I’ve caught my mom doing it too.

If I agree with something, I always say, “no doubt!” – Idk where this came from but I said it twice tonight and I noticed it both times. I picked it up years ago and I can’t seem to shake it!
I also quote Will Ferrell from Oldskool and say “That’s crazy man” as deep as my voice will go when something is weird. Idk what made me start saying that either…

I say “you know?” and it drives me crazy. It just comes out.. like “I just hate those stupid bugs, you know?” I have tried to stop.. but it’s hard.
