At the End of the Day

When I am woman king of the universe, utterances of the phrase "at the end of the day" will bring a $1000 fine for the first offense, with Fibonacci-ally increasing fines for each subsequent use when the speaker is not talking about about something that is actually going to happen at the end of the current day.

Let's review.

At the end of the day, we will stop by the bar for a beer and then go home. ==> dandy.

At the end of the day, it will come down to who wants it more. ==> $1000, please, plus $50 for "who wants it more" because I don't like that either.

At the end of the day, I decided I had to stand up for the people of Pennsylvania, the working families... yes, I stood up to the party establishment when I thought they were wrong for you, and I just want to re-emphasize, at the end of the day, I'm like all Pennsylvanians, pretty independent-minded. ==> that will be $3000, Rep. Sestak, since you've been warned and the first thousand is just assumed to kick-start the fine escalation.

Drives me fucking insane. At the start of the day, and in the middle, and even at the end. Of the day.

"from unnamed sources," or "it's been said" get's me annoyed like nothing else. They call themselves journalists?!
