Yes I can make a poll of most hated phrases, but I would need to know what to include. It’s an intriguing idea. Sorry I didn’t see this when you posted. I’m usually here regularly but I have company and the weather has been worse than usual.

I worry likewise. If you shelter them from every little thing how are they going to handle a real crisis?

He was a businessman appointed by the Board of Governors of such things but apparently not through the normal route; his name was suggested by some Lord High Muckety-Muck.  Apparently he was  a donor to the GOP party and a fan of the former Commander in Chief.  IMO, he's so up his own arse his mustache could tickle the back of his throat but you didn't hear that from me :-)

They want the government or someone else to handle life for them.

If he can’t do the job, he should go.

Will try to come up with a list for  you.  Another pet peeve is when newspapers, who I THOUGHT had word processing software, print what I call Random Hyphenation, which includes hyphenating single syllable words.  Example CRI-MEFIGHTING.  Be-droom is another; I  have a list.  Also, prepositions mean PRE as in BEFORE; they do not go in the middle of a sentence (President Biden Wednesday said that he...)  when it should be On Wednesday, President Biden said...

Does no one know how to write proper English any more?  Today while waiting in the queue to buy groceries, I saw a magazine called "The Royals" with a page on "How to Speak the Queen's English," and thought to myself I speak AND write the Queen's English but you lot are using the King's.   <evil grin>

Unfortunately the President cannot sack him; only the Board that appointed him can remove him, and I don't see that happening any time soon.

Please use your purple pens.  If I can remember the next time I'm out I'll  look for one & start using it.  

Ramped up doesn't bother me like the other word does.  People seem to use it a lot.  I have no idea how it got started...lol

I've not noticed the sound  of the pencil & paper but I have heard the nails on the blackboard & hope that I don't ever hear it again.
