Things we can no longer say | The List According to Marty Beller


This is “The List According to Marty Beller” Some of these are historic, some more recent, some contributed by other band members and Pat Dillett.


These are all things we are not allowed to say within the band:


too much information

off the hook

that’s what (s)he said

my bad

game changer


that’s how we roll

I can’t work under these conditions

playing the (whatever) card

throw under the bus

drinking the kool-aid


phone tag

don’t go there

it’s all good

it is what it is

talk to the hand

think outside the box

off the reservation

oh no you didn’t

I threw up a little in my mouth

one hundred and ten percent


no worries*

jumped the shark

voted off the island

(anything) on acid

(anything) from hell

(anything) on steroids

literally (unless it’s actually used properly)


Of course the list itself is now on the list.


*No worries enjoys a unique “workplace dispensation” where it can be  

used with a co-worker to help decompress a work situation.
