My favorite phrase / word these days is "Listen". It's just the funniest word because it's always followed by bad news. I've started using it more and more.

When has anyone ever started a sentence with "Listen" and the rest turned out to be good? Nobody ever says "Listen, you just won a million dollars!" Never. It's usually more like "Listen, this just isn't working out".

It's still bad even when it's not used as a means to get someone's attention, but in fact to actually request that someone try harder to hear: "Shh! Listen. What was that? Let's get the fuck outta here!"

The whole thing just cracks me up for some reason. So if you've had anyone pull a "Listen" on you lately, leave a comment and let me know what they've said or what you've said to someone else.
