Phrases I have come to hate:
  • "can I have a quick word?" - usually means your employee is leaving
  • "can I have more information" - usually means your client is taking the piss/haggling
  • "it's not you, it's me" - well, we all know what that means: it is you
  • "the accounts department will be sending it to you" - the cheque's in the post, AKA we're paying you sl-o-wl-y
  • "would you mind just..." - just doing loads of extra work for no money. Er, no
  • "I was meaning to call you -" call me what, exactly?
    ... any more for any more?
