I just really hate this phrase: "If you will..."
I mean really, what does it mean? I was listening to NPR the this morning and a guy who was being interviewed said "If you will" something like three times during a two minute response.
I hate "If you will..." It is like saying, "You are too dumb to understand what I really want to say, so I will make it easier for you."
Every time I hear, "If you will..." I want to shout, "What if I won't?"
