My new boss often uses the expression 'it's a mute point.' I thought I was just misunderstanding him when he spoke, but he's written it incorrectly in several memos during the past few weeks. Drives me crazy!
Oh, wow. I have to say that I've never run across this error before. But sure enough, when I searched for 'mute point' on Google, some 63,000 listings popped up. Really, people? Really?
This is so utterly, hilariously, ridiculously wrong that I don't even think I should attempt a correction. Instead, I will share this definition from Urban Dictionary:
mute point - addressing the participants of a conference call while your phone is on mute. It was ten minutes before Robert realized that the eloquent argument he made was actually a mute point.
