Last year Oxford University researchers published a list of the Top Ten Most Irritating Phrases. Thanks to Steve Roesler at All Things Workplace for the reminder in his recent blog post. It's a good review, especially for those of you actively interviewing.

The top ten most irritating phrases:

  1. At the end of the day
  2. Fairly unique
  3. I personally
  4. At this moment in time
  5. With all due respect
  6. Absolutely
  7. It's a nightmare
  8. Shouldn't of (it is "shouldn′t have")
  9. 24/7
  10. It's not rocket science

I'd add "thinking out of the box" or any other variation of this overused expression. What would you add to the list?
