Just. Stop.

People! For the love of God, please stop saying, “Easy peasy.”

It grates on my nerves like nails on a chalkboard. (Does anyone remember chalkboards?)

That is all.

UPDATE!  Someone just emailed this to me, in direct violation of my simple request:

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. 

Now I won’t be able to sleep tonight.

    1. No worries. I’m just laughing about it right now because I’m being ASSAULTED with this phrase everywhere I turn. And at one time I’d probably drink over it! haha. Seriously, I’m trying to rid myself of the word “Cool” because I say it like every ten words.

      1. Hilarious! My eyes glaze over when I’m not listening. I can’t maintain focus when one person speaks for some length of time, like when I was in school. When a teacher would catch my eye during a lecture, it was like I was being hypnotized into sleep. Same thing happened in work meetings. Not sure what it means ….

  1. Whatever happened to “easy peasy Japanesy”? I liked that better than the idiotic lemon one. My personal crazy-maker is “no problem” instead of the proper “you’re welcome.”

  2. Lol, guilty as well. The first time I really registered it was in England, out of the mouth of my six year old son… (who learned it from his teacher)… out of his adorable (and front-teeth-missing) mouth it was the cutest thing I’d ever heard… so it kinda stuck. 🤓

    1. When I did some research on this phrase (while I was looking for reasons not to be working) I found out that it originated in England in the 1950s, and that gave it a new panache so that I almost like now. And if my son had said it at the age of six, I would LOVE it, as I do the phrase, “What’s up, chicken butt?” (This one comes from the Midwest in the US, and no one so far has asked me to stop using it.)
