Update: Thanks to the responses to this post, our list of redundant phrases hit 1000 within a few hours. The promised article—”‘I Used to Be an Ex-Manager’ & 1000 Other Redundancies“—went live the next day.
My list of redundant phrases has continued to grow since You Can Say That Again came out last April. Can’t help it; I’m powerless against these devilishly delicious distractions. Ten more, and we’ll hit 1000.
Will you help me? Enter your candidate phrases in a comment below … I mean, in a comment. (Oooh, “in a comment below” is going on the list! Nine to go now.) Any phrases that I don’t already have may land on the list.
Let ’em fly, folks!
