Thank you, now get lost….

Three phrases I’d like to see retired in ’06:

Munchies it doesn’t matter if you’ve got them or if you’re bringing them.

Veggies the British shorten it to “veg” which I guess is ok but just barely.

Good job! I admit to watching The Amazing Race obsessively, and this phrase is rampant. When did it become common to encourage people by shouting “good Job!” at them? I think it crept into usage through some 80’s idea in child rearing, and it still sounds like someone patronizing their kid about potty training. There are jobs and there are jobs: tying your own shoes may be an acheivement, it may be a chore, but it isn’t a flippin’ job.
