    I thought that was "Jane is totally Beth's b*tch".

    I've become antiquated...

    Hmm. I see it more as the anthetisis of the musician's use of "in the pocket", meaning solidly with the rhythm. "I'm sorry, I'm just totally out of the pocket on this song today. Can we work on something else for a bit?"

    For me, "out of pocket" has meant that someone has paid some costs and expenses out of their own pocket - and that they want to whine about it.

    I always thought describing someone as out of pocket meant they were skint.

    Ok, my 2 cents, this is not a phase... But I become completely irritated when I hear the word "like" used frequently. It makes want to exit any type of conversation that person has to offer regardless of age or media type.

    I'm getting annoyed at anyone who describes the front part of a car, train, airplane, etc., as the "front nose". It doesn't have a nose in the rear.

    So your objection is the redundancy?

    I know of some people who have a nose in the rear. Sometimes their own, sometimes someone else's.

    But I need to distinguish it from my "warm water heater"!

    That's the only context I've ever heard it in. ("In the pocket" I've only ever heard either as being "in someone's pocket", meaning bought and paid for by them, or a more literal horse-racing reference to being in a 'hole', between other horses or other horses/the rail.)

    Don't get me started on "VIN number" and "PIN number"

    "Pass mustard" instead of "pass muster".

    If you're passing mustard, you need a gastroenterologist.
