    I just came to the phase that I can not more stand phrase like ''Cut through the mix'' etc.

    So what's Your most annoying phrase?

    Feel free to add Your own nightmares.:eek:

    "She cuts through the mix like buttah". Gosh, I could write couple of paragraphs about these sorts of things. I won't.

    Customer service: "I'll have someone reach out to you regarding the product".

    Not on the list but bugs me none-the-less.

    Also, Kentucky Fried Chicken can not be "piping hot".

    I have no problem with the music-centric phrases listed.

    Can you explain why not for me? I didn't understand why this is disallowed. I googled the word and it looked appropriate enough.

    Has to do with the term "piping". It's the shrill sound (like bagpipes) which emanates from a cauldron with a lid when a soup or whatever comes to a boil. Read that years ago in an L.M. Boyd column.

    As a highly skilled customer services rep I agree. I would never say that to a customer, that's more of an internal company phrase. In the same way, I never tell a customer "I am going to transfer you". I always say "I will connect you". Choosing words is like choosing notes :D

    “Bedroom tone.”

    Because it’s actually not all about the bass. ;)

    “Gibby” and “Ibby” bug me. No one ever says they have a Foddy or a Saddy or a Lakky. If you can spell out Fodera or Lakland, you can spell out Gibson or Ibanez.

  20. I actually dislike the term “breakdown” when used in the context of everyone dropping out and there being one or two instruments playing softly and maybe some singing.
