Want to start your day off with a good laugh? Take a look at the Urban Dictionary. Search any slang or colloquial term and the definitions are hilarious, but somewhat on point. This week, let’s talk about the ever so often used phrase, “at the end of the day”. During this season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, that phrase was used at any given chance, especially during the reunion show. Every other sentence that came out of Lil Scrappy’s mouth either started or ended with “at the end of the day”. People even had “at the end of the day” drinking games. Every time someone on the show said “at the end of the day”, you had to take a shot.
Here are a few definitions of the phrase courtesy of Urban Dictionary:
- An irritating verbal crutch, indicating closure or synopsis, for morons who are incapable of finishing a sentence without incorporating at least one tired cliche.
- A saying mostly used by people trying to prove points without having any other intelligent way of expressing it.
Now calling people morons, just because they use it, may just be a little harsh. Maybe they were never taught how to properly make a point, or how to conclude a sentence. Not only is this not-so-catchy phrase used verbally, but it’s also popular amongst people using Twitter as well.
Maybe if you would have studied at the end of your days, you wouldn’t feel guilt for possibly failing.
In one breath you’re talking about how blessed you are, but in another..hoes? But you’re not worried about these hoes, that you’ve dedicated a tweet to. At the end of the day, you may want to read this post.
Oh those sound like fighting words. But at the end of the day, stop the violence.
Adding that phrase doesn’t make you seem that much smarter. It just shows you have that little left to say. I’m not sure about everyone else, but at the end of the day, I just want a good night’s sleep.
