    Default Catch-Phrases

    What are your common catch-phrases in everyday life?

    (I usually say UNDERSTATEMENT in various tone or volume)

    There's a few depending on the situation, but the closest thing to a catch phrase I have is probably "aaaannnyway" used as a segue.

    I don't deliberately make catchphrases for myself, but I think there are some things I say often enough that they can be considered as such.

    Apparently I say "it is what it is" a lot. My first clue was when my mom bought me a T-shirt that says "id est quod id est."

    I don't have verbal catchphrases, I have handsey ones. I'll usually eityher clap my hands and point with both hands, or snap both fingers and point with both hands when I suddenly remember something or am looking for something and realize where it is, or various other situations. I've done it so much it's a very fluid move. Never noticed I started doing it until friends pointed it out. They were amused.

    I have a few I find myself saying a lot.

    Life’s a b and then you d. (B is for bitch and d is for die, but I don’t say that around my kids.)

    Swell, and you? (In response to how I’m doing.)

    You can always flip that switch. (Referring to bad behavior from my kids.)

    Yare-yare. (For “my my” when my infant is upset.)

    "I hate plumbing" is a common phrase among the plumbers I have known.

    I mostly just wanted an opportunity to show of my (lackluster) knowledge of Latin. Does this make me weak and vain? Yes.

    4 years of Latin in high school. Trust me, I understand. I'm just weak and vain for different reasons.

    Same here. I still remember that line from Ceasar's De Bello Gallico: Hi omnis fortissimi sunt Belgae (of them all, the Belgians are the bravest). Being from Belgium myself, it somehow appealed to me. Strange, isn't it?

    Probably makes more sense to those outside of the profession than my "I'll be in my corner, waitin' on the handy-dandy lawyers."

    I have a 4 year old daughter, 6 nieces, and I work in a school. I probably shouldn't utter "I hate children..." as often as I do.

    ...But then, if you've ever worked in a school, you'd probably understand.
