"Gift" as a verb. Nope.

"who wudda thunk it?" is getting rather old too

Misuse of "literally". "I got scared and literally jumped 50 feet in the air"... impossible.

"It's Monday, you're already two hours late; are you planning on showing up to work?" I hate that one...

Working in a park, my pet hate is "Gophers": with apologies to Minnesota's Golden variety...gopher as a catch-all for chipmunks, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, moles, voles...arrgh! The park is home to all of that list -except gophers!

"No, sir, the gopher did not eat your tent. The chipmunk did, and it's didn't so much eat your tent as chew the spilled cola out of the fabric."

Also, "lime" and "beer" in the same sentence, worse if the term "lite" is involved, too.

Gopher Lime Lite Beer - yeah, I'll pass.

When It's All Said And Done, The Bottom Line is that I am irritated by the overuse of At The End Of The Day.

"that said...". Usually when I see that one, its followed by some statement that totally contradicts what came before it.

"no you shouldn't pitch an entire yeast cake, its overpitching for sure. That said, I do it all the time with no problems."
