That title is a phrase—“things I’m suddenly tired of” that a former owner and publisher of my local newspaper used to say as the header of an editorial.  It had to do with stock and catch phrases he was sick and tired of hearing due to over use.  He would make that a feature maybe three times a year.

I can only think of a few.  I will write them here and no doubt my BlogSpot blog will be much like this one.

The first thing that makes me want to stuff a sock in the mouth of any announcer,  TV “personality,” friend, or  perhaps a stranger standing near by is that SO overused phrase “At the end of the day.”  S-T-O-P!!   Q-U-I-T!!  CEASE!!

Then, the incessant ridiculous constant never-ending phrase “Good Morning to you” on ABC  news..morning, night and all spots in between.  S-T-O-P!!  Don’t SAY that.  Get OVER it! Get ON with the so-called news..quit with the inane puerile fake greetings.

Then the word “Fail” or worse, EPIC Fail.  STOP. QUIT.  Find another word.  Read synonyms if you have to.  Go to and look up words in a thesaurus!  Find another word for fail.  Please.

Then, there is the overused and blindingly dull word “Physicality” used on Sports shows.  If I would make wavery letters to spell out the word STOP here, I would.  STOP for pete sake.

Just complaining.  How are YOU doing?
