j’s been telling me lately about a colleague who uses the same phrase a ridiculous number of times a day. today at work i got this:

From: J

To: J
Subject: I’m the hip-hopapotamus ***

My day was going well I thought, I was feeling pretty happy

Its almost the weekend I thought, today will not be cr*ppy

When suddenly my ears flexed and my stomach wrenched in pain

For from across the office came the dreaded phrase ‘to which it appertains’

I feel like saying ‘Over-using words like that just shows a lack of class’

‘So why don’t you stop it before I shove this Collins up your….’

*** if you don’t get the reference, check here. hell, check it even if you do get it!

    It’s starting to drive me up the wall, the number of times you hear people say “at the end of the day…” here. It’s just the latest verbal fad.

    Though the ‘appertains’ thing sounds fairly unique at least. Let’s hope everyone else around him doesn’t start aping it!! (as they do)

    Does anyone else find it a bit bothersome that ‘asian’ (that’s Indian, Pakistani, etc in the UK) people here end every sentence with either ‘yeah?’ or ‘innit?’. Also not classy.
