I view that the exact same way!From a technical report writing class I took twenty-five moons ago: "exact same" was noted as an unnecessary redundancy.
I understand the intent but, something can be exact or it can be the same. Or, it can be nearly exact or nearly the same.
Simply "exact" or "same" suffices. Stop it! Actually, it's not yet "get off my lawn" annoying - yet, however, give me a few years. lol
Living my best life.
Living your best life.
Just find it annoying for some reason.
Similar, one phrase I’m annoyed by is “Rest In Peace”??? I dunno why. I just feel like what happens after I’m dead is not really anybodys business but mine? How would they know if I’m “Resting in peace” or “Resting in Anger?” Or “Resting in happiness” or “Resting in Sadness”???
"Can't win for losing" Nobody has been able to persuade me that this makes one iota of sense, but my mind is still open.
There’s one big one for me and it’s people starting their statement with “I mean…”. It drives me crazy and it’s everywhere now. My wife picked it up from a friend last year and still does it constantly and because of that now both of my kids do it. I probably hear it 20-25 times a day.
I found this little snippet that reinforces you theory. You can't go wrong with a name like Johnny Dope.. Some newspaper columnist or sportswriter many decades ago likely coined it trying to be clever.
Out of 21 starts the Detroit Tigers won six games. They can't win for losing
