I'm tearing out my hair. I read a phrase the other day that upset me. I stood it for as long as I could manage, but it's just too much. I had to elbow my way out of my dungeon when the guard came with my lunch.
Argh!!! This is a mashup of two separate phrases that mean about the same thing: lately, and as of late, referring to past events.
People! Don't use them both at the same time!!! One of them is certainly enough to convey your meaning.
