When I get really annoyed...

...at a person, I say, "I hope he (usually he, that is) falls into a lake!"

I have no idea WHERE I got that expression from or whey I started saying it.

In fact, I even Googled "I hope he falls into a lake" and it doesn't seem like anybody else ever uses that exclamation.

Maybe I say it because it doesn't sound too harsh...I'm not wishing death or serious injury on anybody...I just want them to fall into a lake...ruin your shoes...catch a cold...not too bad.

And still, it is just so oddly satisfying to say.

"I HOPE HE FALLS INTO A LAKE!"

Try it.
