The venerable scribes at Oxford have compiled a list of the 10 most annoying phrases.

The title of this post is No. 10: It’s not rocket science … because if it were, neither of us would understand what we’re talking about.


No. 1 on the list is “At the end of the day” — a very British way of saying “night.”

“At this moment in time” is No. 4 on the list at this moment. In time.

No. 5 is “With all due respect,” because — let’s face it — nobody has or deserves that much respect.
