Default Common Phrases we all secretly HATE!

I read this awesome article today & coincidentally someone wrote tbh in their email .. I asked what's tbh - to be honest was the reply & I laughed a lot! Here's why...

http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/5118472

22 Common Phrases We All Secretly Hate
Maddie Crum Culture Writer, The Huffington Post

What makes a phrase cringe-worthy?

We asked HuffPost editors which sayings bother them the most, and found that the common thread among the responses was uselessness. Often, the phrases that we find off-putting are those that serve as conversational fillers, implying that the speaker is vapid or has little else to contribute to the conversation. “Just sayin’” is the perfect example; why, exactly, do you need to verbally acknowledge the fact that you just said something? Why not, to borrow a popular phrase, “just say it”?

Business and Internet jargon (“There’s no ‘I’ in team” and “This. So much this,” respectively) are irritating in their own rights, but phrases said in day-to-day conversation can be the most grating.

Here are 22 common expressions people secretly hate. Let us know which sayings you dislike in the comments!:

“Everything happens for a reason.”
... except when it doesn’t.

“If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.”
“If fact #1 is true, then fact #1 is true.” This falls under the “you actually just said nothing” category.

“I mean...”
This expression, like “let me think,” is somewhat of a conversation hedge, so we can forgive it. Still, why call attention to the fact that you’re saying what you mean? Do you normally not say what you mean?

“To be frank...”
“As opposed to the rest of the things I say, which are evasive...”

“Honestly...”
“Typically I’m lying, but in this case I’m being honest.”

“Just sayin’.”
Just sayin’ what?! And why do you feel the need to alert people that you are, indeed, speaking? “Just sayin’” is often followed by a rude statement, in a feeble attempt to soften the blow.

“At the end of the day...”
The metaphorical version of the already trite, “when it’s all said and done...”. The best part? It’s said at all hours of the day.

“Same difference.”
So... is it the same? Or different? Are the differences between the two things that you’re comparing the same?

“Do what you love.”
This is a nice sentiment, but it oversimplifies the task of finding a vocation, hobby or path. Plus, it implies that everyone has the ability and funds to follow their hearts, whether their hearts desire terminal degrees, improv classes, or their very own Etsy shops.

“Let me tell you something.”
Along the lines of, “Can I ask you something?” this phrase is completely needless.

I apologize if I made you feel that way.”
I.e. “I refuse to take responsibility for my actions.”


My bad.
This expression makes light of a mistake — rather than a sincere apology, “my bad” is the verbal equivalent of a shrug.

Sorry I’m not sorry.
Fine when used facetiously, but so irritating when said in earnest. It’s a more straightforward version of the above.

No worries.”
This is fine when said to someone who had sincere worries, but is often used passive aggressively, as in: “I’m going to be a little late.” “No worries!” Wait, should I have been worried?

Chill out.
“Your concerns are not valid and are totally drowning out my Phish live stream.”

“Sunday funday!”
Rhyming does not an acceptable phrase make.

[b]“I’ve got a case of the Mondays.”1
Who wouldn’t, after Sunday funday?

“Killing it.”
Because what’s success without severe aggression? Also, it may be physically impossible to say this phrase without simultaneously high-fiving someone.

Work hard, play hard.”
If you’re really working that hard, wouldn’t you need to sleep hard at some point?

“Give 110 percent.”
Not possible.

"Yeah, no.”
So... you mean “no”? If you mean no, just say “no”!

Yeah, no.

To be frank, all these sayings basically amount to the same difference. People are going to say these things, I mean, everything happens for a reason right? Let me tell you something, at the end of the day, if it's meant to be, it's meant to be. Say what you mean, mean what you say, and do what you love. Chill out already, just sayin.

Why don't you work hard, play hard, and give 110 percent? You'll soon find that you're killing it.

I apologize if I made you feel that way. My bad, maybe I just need to chill out, enjoy my Sunday funday before I've got a case of the Mondays.

our thoughts and prayers go out to all the...

Makes me cringe and dive under the bed , so I don't get caught in the crossfire of all these heartfelt corporate cliches flying around.

Some one please come up with true feelings. Eg..we will get the fuckers that set that fire, planted that bomb, Caused our oil leak, or careless use of chemicals etc, and do something about it.


And ps..bringing them to justice is warn out too.
