EVEN MORE BAD CRUTCHES AND CLICHES
CHRIS MILLER IN CLEVELAND:
I recently heard a woman in her 30s say "tomorrow will be a carbon-copy, weather-wise, of today." Carbon copy?
Furthermore, anything ending in "wise" is completely uncool sounding. "Weather-wise, traffic-wise."
All those jocks who say, "so stick around for that, it's coming up sometime in the next hour," are clueless about modern life. You want a whole friggin' hour of my time to pay off your measly tease? Have you noticed how busy we all are? No wonder your TSL sucks.
Finally, not dated as much as just my personal unhip pet peeve is jocks who post on the station's Facebook page starting with, "Hey Facebook friends!!" Yeah, right, when I see your post, I suddenly picture myself in a group of 5,000 strangers. Have a nice day
"24 hours a day.....7 days a week." I believe we are all familiar with the passing of time.
It's seven-five, 75 degrees outside.".......that KILLS ME! You don't need to tell me "degrees and it's outside."
AND ANOTHER ANONYMOUS:
"And currently we're looking at Double Nickels in downtown Wickieup, with an oldie but a goodie from the late, great Ray Price."
RICK IN BOSTON
"7:15, 15 past 7." Double time checks are brutal.
KEVIN IN CANADA:
"Here's a little..." (title and artist of the song). Are you going to play a little bit of the song, or the whole thing?
AND I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. ANDREW JAYE SENT ME THIS LINK. IT'S SO TRUE!
There are a endless stream of these out there is "Radioland." :) Feel free to post more below.
