I read about a question that was asked on Reddit, ‘Which sentence is only used by annoying people?’
Apparently, on Saturday 22nd October, responses went viral, and by Sunday, more than 13,000 Redditors had participated in the conversation by ranking their favorite “annoying’ phrases”.
One user commented, “We are like family here,” from their bosses,’ and this struck a chord with many others.
A user queried, “I barely get along with the family I already have. Why would I want another one?”‘
And I was reminded, for the second time in a week, of the old saying: “God gives us our family. Thank heavens we can choose our friends.”
Back in the days when I was working I often reflected that work colleagues, like family, couldn’t be chosen. And, unlike family members, we have to get along with our work colleagues.
So, yes, work can be like family, but not in a good way.
What frequently-trotted out phrases make you wince?
