I have a SIL who gets on my nerves on a regular basis. I actually like her; but she has a couple quirks that, to me, are like nails on a chalkboard. One is she continues to smoke, against medical advice. The main quirk that bothers me is her penchant for saying "suffice it to say". Really, what the hell does that mean?
She throws the objectionable phrase into her personal narration on a regular basis. Each and every time, I just cringe. SIL uses the phrase as a filler, to make her sentences longer, or instead of pausing to gather her thoughts. Urgh!
This the the definition from Dictionary.com,
"suffice it to say
It is enough to say this and no more, as in Suffice it to say that the judge was furious when the invitation was withdrawn."
