    Default Most Annoying Overused Phrases?

    What cliche phrases and sayings that people use annoy you?

    For example:

    I hate when people preface a statement by saying 'with all due respect' before criticizing or insulting someone because it's obvious they don't respect the person.

    Another one is: 'not gonna lie'

    Or: "Let's bounce"..."It's time to bounce"...or anything that uses the word 'bounce' instead of the word 'leave'

    Hmmmmm...

    "The truth will set you free." Overused, and an absolute (ironically) lie.

    It's over 9000

    Well, a lot of phrases for me make sense, mostly because I see the irony is them. I think, "With all due respect" actually started as an insult.

    No one flame for this (ah there's one) but I find the Pledge of Allegiance annoying. No one takes it seriously anymore. Really. It's a repeated chant. No feeling. No emotion.

    "Your Mom"

    Ha ha, I got so annoyed with that, then when people would say that, I'd say "Your Life" It makes more sense to insult the person than their mother, right? ha ha

    But the worst is: "I know, right?"

    I HATE when people say that. YES, I KNOW. THATS WHY I SAID IT.

    ^ Haha, I tend to say "I know right" at times. But I do find it an incredibly annoying phrase and say it more out of habit than anything else. "Your mom" is terrible too and I don't even see where the insult is. :3

    For some reason I don't like the phrase "Same difference". Just my opinion, but I think "Same thing" sounds better. "Same difference" is an oxymoron imo. ^_^

    I guess one I hear alot during the school year would be "That's what she said." after someone makes a statement. Also, people who say like a lot when talking (though I have noticed I've done this too at times XP).

    My bf, lately, says "bcos pro."
    Like, if I say "How did you raise your Pokemon to that level so quickly?"
    him: "Bcos pro" (apparently it's short for 'because I'm a pro') but it, for some reason, makes me want to rip my hair out from my head. .-.

    I find "That's what she said" even more annoying than "Same difference", now that I think about it.

    I've just tuned that out. My friend Nathan says that all the time. I just don't notice him anymore.

    Nathan: "That's what she said."

    I hate the words gay and retarded when they are used in the wrong fashion.

    This. Though I do have a sense of humor about it, I'd really rather people didn't use those words as insults.

    Same difference just makes my skin crawl!!!

    I hate "I could care less" just as much. "I couldn't care less" is fine, and it doesn't make you sound like a dumbass.

    The words epic and fail.
    Maybe in moderation they're okay...
    But constantly? No.

    Hi, I'd like to transform you into a yeti.
    Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

    That post is epic fail.

    Joking, I just had to do that.


    Seriously, though, I hate the word "ditz." It's used way too often and is downright insulting.

    Nice hat

    Why do people have an issue with my hat? Imagine Lucas' hat but black and with no symbol.
