: I saw another thread regarding this phrase. From my expirence, I first ran into this phrase when moving to the california area in the late 90's from vancouver, canada. But then when returning for an extended vacation I noticed it a few times in Vancouver. Now, its everywhere and there's a small backlash from it.
: But the question is: Where did it start?
That one has been discussed on this forum, I believe. A search of the archives failed to turn up the previous discussion. I think the phrase originated in business/corporate settings.
