I've had it up to here - and don't be giving it any "Here? Where?" guff - with commentators who say "he got the job done". Saturday night at the Carlton Norf game Mark Readings (I think) greeted most every goal he called with "he got the job done". Nor do I apologise if it wasn't Readings, either, he precisely the sort of bloke who would say "he got the job done". SEN's overnight bloke, Brett Phillips, said it at least 123 times, at a rough estimate. He even said it during the caller quiz. Each correct answer was met with an enthusiastic "Whoa! He's got the job done." My generous side wants to think he was taking the piss, but he wasn't. Clunt Grabarse says it, too. And that Casey bloke who does the basketball on Foxtel. And others et al. I'm sure the pack of them think it sounds slick and sharp, but it doesn't, it makes them sound like glib dicks. Cooloid nobs. Hipster deadshits.
Naturally, it's an American affectation, which means it sounds fine when Yanks say it but sounds completely stupid when Strayans say it. Like when Yanks say "Goodeye moit."
