RE: The Inappropriate "Thank God!"

What gets my goat though is "praise the lord".
I used to have a secretary who drove me nuts despite her efficiency at her job.
I would occasionally reward her with a bonus or a watch or something for a job well done. She would look at it and shout (and I mean shout) "Praise the Lord".
Really rubbed me the wrong way, I was the one giving the gift. After a bit I decided to let god do the rewarding and quit giving her stuff.
I like it when they say "Praise the Lord" when I give them a facial.
The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
