This weeks topic: What saying or catchphrase do you say ALL the time?


I found this quite tricky to think of something myself, so I asked some of my friends instead. I thought they'd probably be the ones that would know best.

It turns out, apparently, that something I say quite a lot is 'Good luck with that', but not in a sincere or hopeful way. 
It's usually in response to someone else's suggestion to try or do something which I know is a pointless activity. More often than not I've already tried to explain the difficulties involved and when they don't listen my response is simple:

'Well, good luck with that.'

I'm sure the level of sarcasm injected varies depending on the person and the task, but I've no doubt it's there in some way.


How about you? Do you have a saying you're known for saying a lot?

  2. I should ask my peeps what my most common phrase is...though I'd be afraid to hear their answer.

  4. I'm seriously wondering if people notice something that I say or type frequently, but haven't told me.

  6. hahaha That's a good one. I was asked something similar this Summer, when I had just bought my phone. I don't remember what I was trying to do, but I was struggling, and when I explained it to my co-workers, one of them said, "And how are you doing with that?" We all laughed.
