  • There's nothing offensive about "all my hard work has gone down the drain", it's not like "all my hard work has gone down the toilet" or even ”all my hard work has gone down the pan”, but the most formal and least picturesque way to say it would be "all my hard work has been wasted".

  • Sorry to say that's not a Question about English, nor even language in general. That's clearly a question about style and personal choice, which don't belong here… Aug 11, 2018 at 21:02
