Uh buh bye

I would like to request the banishment of the phrase "It is what it is". I think as of 12/31/2009 11:59:59 we should all stop using that phrase. I've heard it used by each of my friends who lost their jobs this year, also in regards to deaths in families that I care about. When my car breaks down, when your car breaks down, when it rains/snows/is hot/cold/tepid/chilly. ENOUGH. What a defeatist horrible statement. It should always be accompanied by a dramatic sigh and the swiping of one's brow with the back of one's hand. Please. Please help me in my campaign to abolish this phrase from our daily vernacular. And if it does get carried into 2010? Well, it is what it is. Sigh.

let's do a trade, like backroom politics. I'll support you in this, if you support me in the banishment of X being "thrown under the bus".

Can we throw it is what it is under the bus?

I think that sentence makes sense.

I will admit to limited us of IIWII. Typically in business settings, where I am merely trying to get participants to move on from flinging blame to trying to actually grapple with whatever problem has erupted.

A friend of mine uses this statement frequently. Just SHRUG. We KNOW what it is.

I am also sick of "take it to the next level"...

Housewares, better hammers, and Men's Lingerie!!

I'll work to eliminate IIWII if we can also get rid of "hang in there."

I would also like to have people stop saying: "Please don't put the remote control down your pants."

Maybe that is just my house.

I'll have to second the Zombie re: business use of IIWII.

It's real estate talk.
