I hate corporate America devs that say “connect with you later today” like the fuck u think I am? A USB port?

    When we're on the topic of being irrationally annoyed by common language constructs:

    I hate when someone says on the phone: "This is he". Like in:

    - "Hello"

    - "Hi, can I speak to Darren?"

    - "This is he"

    I have no idea why this one annoys me so much. Everything is better. You could say "Speaking" or "That's me" or even "On the phone". But I just cannot stand "This is he".

    But "connect with you later", that one I actually like.

    Irrational dislike, I guess.

    @TheCommoner282 this he would piss me off too. It just sounds weird.

    “This is him” is ok. Or the others you listed

    @darrenrahnemoon what’s your timeline on the drywall fix? Don’t forget to iron out the details of the best practices moving forward. Do you have the bandwidth to circle back in 72 minutes? PM wants the report on their desk by 2.
