“makes life easier”

10 01 2012

How many times a day do you use the phrase “makes life easier”?

I was considering the phrase a month or two ago, and since then have realised just how much I do say it!

  • It’ll make life much easier if I just defrost some chicken in the morning
  • “I just need to grab a pen” “Do you want to borrow mine?” “Oh yea, that’d make life far easier, thanks”
  • and of course, my stupidly obscure thought on twitter last month

Make’s life easier?! Does those with nothing think any of those things would make their life easier? Think of someone who wouldn’t know the word defrost, let alone spotify! Someone who if asked what would make their life easier, I’m pretty sure food, shelter and good health would be near the top, not those things. Maybe they’ll make life a *fraction* easier for us, but I seem to have absent mindedly used words like ‘much’ and ‘far’ in those examples, which are *definitely* out of place!!

Do you say it much? Is there any phrase you use often that you’ve realised is a bit odd?
