  • I am adding this phrase to Dumbisms because frankly I have had enough of it. Its usage has become so ingrained in the minds of to many people and at this moment I am having a hard time thinking of a time when I heard someone use it appropriately. Even when it is used correctly it is often in some context that makes me want to ask the speaker to please please stop talking now.
