These ones don't bother me. They've been around for 30 years, and before lenders started lending to anyone with a hint of a pulse these financial instruments were pretty safe and not abused.

The one's I don't quite get are Credit Default Swaps. WTF?

But that's not really the point of this thread...hmm...how about this one: "A good time was had by all" -- usually in reference to some f'n event where NOBODY had a good time.

"The current/new mantra is...."

"and um"
"so can't I" (wtf is that supposed to mean?)
".....and sh!t" (trying to sound cool, I suppose)

I could fill an entire book with irritating phrases uttered by the management idiots and management idiot wannabees at work:

"let's look at this from the 50,000 foot level"
"I need to reach out to Jim for his opinion"
"We'll leverage our learnings"
"Going forward...."
"We don't know what we don't know"
