TOP 10 irritants

RESEARCHERS at Oxford University recently compiled a list of the top 10 irritating expressions.

Heading it was “at the end of the day”, which was followed in second place by the phrase “fairly unique”.

In third place was the tautological statement “I personally”.

Also making the top 10 is the grammatically incorrect “shouldn’t of”, instead of “shouldn’t have”.

The top 10 most irritating phrases:

1) At the end of the day

2) Fairly unique

3) I personally

4) At this moment in time

5) With all due respect

6) Absolutely

7) It’s a nightmare

8) Shouldn’t of

9) 24/7

10) It’s not rocket science

So, Guess What??? Are we wrong?? think about it twice :)
