In a past life everyone seemed to get completely stuck on both verbal and written “go forward”, as in:

“Go forward, we’re going to stop allocating the balconette to the VG4 stores”

Go forward?  That’s not a lead-in, it’s a freaking immediate directional order.  GoING forward, sure.  But GO forward?  Might as well be: 

Turn left, we’re going to stop alllocating the balconette to the VG4 stores”

 

Made me want to claw my eyes out.

@MissBoPeep: Bahahaha. This is why wb needs a ‘like’ button.

I’m surprised no one has mentioned “bless his/her/your heart.” It’s actually a phrase that I enjoy saying as a joke, but I know it can irritate some people (particularly northerners I think).

“No offense, but…” then whoever goes on to say whatever offensive thing they feel the need to say. I usually reply with a smart ass “No offense, but I’m offended”
