People that use the phrase "Can I get..."

For example they might be in Starbucks and say to the assistant "Can I get a large latte and a Danish".

Makes me feel like saying "No you can't get it, he has to get it. You can HAVE it. Now go away and learn how to speak properly."

Some one who uses the phrase, 'I know where you're coming from." That has to be the most stupidest thing I have ever heard. When I hear it I want to go home and get the .06, and. . .

How about 'at this moment in time' when 'now' would do just as well.

And at the risk of upsetting our American friends, what in hell's name does 'get-go' mean?

The correct pronunciation is "GIT-GO". It is usually used to express a desire for some effort to be made. As in "I know I need a shower, but I just don't have the GIT-GO".

The term probably derives from US TV westerns (WAG). And the people who use the term imagine themselves as cowboys on their imaginary horses and when they want the horse to GO they spur-kick it and say "GIT".

"GIT" being a foreshortened version of "GIDDYUP" which some fictional cowboy said on some TV show in the 50s whenever he wanted the horse to GO.

Heh Heh

I've never used it myself, but always heard it to mean from the very beginning, as in " I knew that new employee wouldn't work out from the get-go."

Get-go - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
