At the end of the day….

This seems to be the year for the phrase “at the end of the day”, meaning, “no matter what you think or say, this is the way it’s shaking down.” The other day I found myself saying it. I didn’t even really notice the phrase until I heard somebody use it in a very patronizing way, and now I’m hearing it all the time.

I’ve decided to retire “at the end of the day” from my vocabulary of phrases.

Do any over-used phrases or expressions get under your skin?

    At the end of the day folks will use phrases with which they are comfortable. That being said I will add that back in the day we didnt worry about things like phrases because lets face it… it is what it is!

Have your say...
