Where do these things come from? You know what mean... the things you hear and they make you stop in your tracks and want to scream out loud... "WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?!" You may even use them from time to time...

Doesn't happen to you? Oh... well anyway, here's a great example.

I overhear a lot of things in the hallways at work. Most of it is nonsense anyway, but some of it just makes my head hurt. Last week there was a candidate for dumbest phrase ever. What could possibly have been spoken that was that bad? Well, I didn't hear the whole story... something about a dog, or someone's daughter, or whatever, but I heard the following:

she was happy as "all get out"

Happy as WHAT? What the hell is that supposed to mean? All get out of what? I DON'T GET IT!

Can anyone explain this to me? Have you heard anything worse?
