Has anyone mentioned "go ahead and..."?

I think it's quite recent, but my God, it's getting annoying.

Ryan Schultz, an otherwise engaging performer and instructor on the Big Blind Media "Self Workers" series, cannot go more than two or three sentences without saying it.

"I'd like you to go ahead and cut the cards..."
"Now go ahead and memorise your card..."
"Just go ahead and sign your name here..."

It is ALWAYS redundant.

Michael O'Brien, who does the instruction for Josh Zandman's Time Traveller book test, is another perpetrator. "Now you can go ahead and name the word they looked at..." Again and again and again.

Four COMPLETELY unnecessary syllables.

Once you notice it, you can't unnotice it and it's infuriating.

Thanks for pointing it out! Someone has to! I don’t even realize I do sometimes. I actually got called out for saying “mkay” too much and corrected that. I have more to work on now!
