Phrases are a large part of popular culture. I've had my fill of "Think Outside The Box" and "TMI". Now I'm realizing another phrase becoming common place and I can't figure out why?
In the past 2 weeks I've noticed people explain a situation then utter, "That being said..." and continue on with either their decision or conclusion.
Why are they reminding us that they've said something?
Why do they think we wouldn't understand that their decision came from the facts they had just given us?
It seems to be wasted words, an unnecessary, enjoying-the-sound-of-their-own-voice, statement.
That Being Said... do you have any phrases that you would like to have put out to pasture? ;->
