Default "I hate the expression ....."

Thought I'd start a new thread for us to post things that people say that bug us.

I have SO many!

One of my recent hated expressions is the hackneyed, idiotic, "It is what it is".

Makes my skin crawl.

I think the people that say it think they are being very wise, and philosophical, but it's seems trite, without any thought, and even defeatist to me.

Okay, thank you for letting me get that out.

What expressions do you hate? And if I say your hated expressions, I promise I won't be mad at you if you post that you hate them.

Which reminds me .... "I have a quick question".

Dealing with the public, I hear this all the time. Fact: there is no such thing as "quick question" when that phrase comes out of a person's mouth. If it was a quick question, they would have just asked the damn question, without preface.

Grrrrrr!

The ever do phony but "polite", "Let's do lunch" when both parties know it will never happen. Variation: "Let's meet for coffee or drinks".

Phoney "Have a nice day"

One that some of the kids at school use - "I knew that" when they patently did not.

"Cold enough for you? Hot enough for you?"

Don't ask me about the weather if you have nothing else to say.

"How are you?"

Don't ask unless you REALLY want to know, I have no time for small talk. LOL!!!

Why? because... if you're speaking to idiots who just can't seem to grasp what you really mean.. if they persist with arguing, it's best to say It Is What It Is.
Usually, they go off scratching their numb skulls wondering what the hell you meant.
I like it when that happens.

"I know what you're going through."

So cliche unless you "really" know.

Ooooo! Got another one!

"My bad".

I just want to smack people who say that. Not only does it sound stupid, it's the same as saying, "oops, oh well, no big deal".

You guys are coming up with some good ones. Or bad ones, really.

I'm just aggravating myself by reading this thread.

Well, I hate to say this but, irregardless of what you guys think this topic could step on some toes, but it is what it is. I just have one quick question... oh I forgot it now, but you know what I mean. And If I offended anyone, by bad.

Have a nice day.

No Problem from someone doing their job.

I've been known to come back with 'How nice your doing your job isn't a problem for you', or thereabouts.
