Things and people I am tired of:

I'm sick and tired of:

Bob Costas
Barry Bonds
Terrell Owens
Oprah
Dr. Phil
Rosie O'Donnell
Jesse Jackson
Geraldo Rivera
Ben Affleck
Any celebrity looking for charity camera time in New Orleans
The host of Survivor
Bill O'Reilly & Bill Maher
JT The Brick
The Starbucks coffee company
People with no souls (see wealthy corporate executives and Scott Peterson)

Old, tired phrases I'm ready to puke over:

resource
value-add
synergy
push back
due dilligence
deliverable
stakeholder buy-in
action item
low hanging fruit
sharpen the pencil
gourmet
couture
normalcy
gravitas
hurt feelings (as a tool for manipulation of others feelings and emotions)
irregardless (which is not a word in the English language)
very unique (which is to say something is very one of a kind ... it doesn't work!)

If the phrases and people in the lists above fell off the face of the Earth tomorrow, I suspect the world would continue to turn ... and I'd be very happy.
