Cliched sayings that you've had enough of would be?

Asked by Jude (32098points) January 9th, 2012

The first time that I heard, I abhorred it:

“You’re a rock star”.

You can do it! or You can do it, all night long! Been around since a retarded Adam Sandler movie years and years ago… it was funny at first; it’s just annoying now.

Oh, I also hate hearing “in a pig’s eye”. WTF? A pig’s eye? Why?

^^ I hate that one too, but for different reasons, lol.

@WillWorkForChocolate Why, what do you think my reason is?

“Everything always happens for the best.” No – it doesn’t.

He/she has moved on to a better place. Really? Maybe not…

“And what do you prefer, a boy or a girl?”

“At the end of the day . . .” ugh!

And there seems to be an emerging trend to reply with “no problem” when I say “thank you.”

It seems a poor substitute for “you’re welcome,” but maybe I’m just too picky.

“He’s in a better place now.” – Really? I can make arrangements to have you there in no time at all.

When I was an expectant father and people asked me that, I always shut them up with “A puppy!” Fortunately my wife understood or at least pretended to.

I also told people, when I was much younger, when they would ask me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” “A bum like my father.” He really did understand.

I don’t know if this counts but it seems that businesses nowadays (including the one I work for) call every group of people sat around a meeting table a “committee”. At work we currently have a managers committee, a customer care committee, an open day committee and the list goes on. It’s just a meeting stop trying to make it sound more important by calling it a committee. I hate marketing buzz words.

”... your concern” when it’s not a concern, it’s a farking complaint.

Second for “at the end of the day”.

I hate it when Padma Lakshmi of Top Chef says, “Pack your knives and go!” to the person who lost the competition, instead of just saying something like, “Thank you Nigel for participating, and good luck in your future endeavors.”

Clearly, the contestants on the show can cook, or else they wouldn’t be on there, but since only one person can win, why not just be gracious to the people who didn’t win. It’s not like they suck or that they’re horrible cooks, they just weren’t able to wow the judges with a combination of rock candy, rutabagas and monkfish.

WestRiverrat's avatar

@Kardamom the producers think the audience tunes in to see the nasty endings. I think Trump’s Apprentice and Simon on Idol are a big part of it, but not the only ones by any means.

I tend not to watch the competitions that have nothing positive to say about the contestants, even the ones that don’t win.

Kardamom's avatar

@WestRiverrat I hate the competitions where the judges say horrible things to the “losers.” I love watching cooking shows, for the cooking. The challenges are often ridiculous and I prefer say, Iron Chef (which presents the chefs with more reasonable ingredients that might actually be used in a real restaurant) as opposed to Chopped, which often pairs silly things that real chefs just wouldn’t use on purpose (like fruit roll ups or rootbeer flavored jelly beans). On Iron Chef, when the “winner” is announced, they also thank the competitor rather than telling them to shove off.

Sometimes I’ll watch the cooking segment right up until the point where the judging will happen and then switch it off.

That’s why I really prefer shows like Diners, Drive-ins and Dives or cooking/teaching shows like Emeril, because they’re just showing you where to find or how to make great food.

@wundayatta Heh, yeah. I remember your question about that a while back. Fuckin box…lol.
This reminds me of anything that’s about jumping band wagons, and how it seems that everyone never jumps the band wagon. Just people saying they don’t IS jumping that particular wagon. Christ. If everyone is so different and unique, then why in hell is there even a wagon? I mean, the wagon is there. It NEEDS to be there in its entirety, in order for everyone to claim they never jump bandwagons. And the wagon can’t just be sitting there not doing anything. What, are there ghosts riding it? Is that why everyone is so original, because trends, fashions, ideals are all actually regulated by ghosts? Fuck that. And what’s wrong with jumping a bandwagon, anyways? What if I wanna? What if I like where it’s going? It automatically makes me lame that I’m a sheep? Especially when most people all jump band wagons anyways?
So uh…I hate whatever cheese saying that has anything to do with band wagons. Sorry. Just a little rant. Just tryna be funny.

Also I hate this; they’re more afraid of you than you are of them.

Seems like such fuckin dismissal. First of all, even if I weren’t talking about being stalked, chased down and devoured by orcs and trolls, bullies and people that don’t like you and make your life a living hell aren’t scared of you. At least, not in such simple terms that this trite saying suggests. Hostility certainly keeps on existing because we understand it, that’s for sure. Now then, if someone has a towel, may I borrow it to clean the sarcasm coming from my damn mouth? :D

It will all work out in the end.

Once a saying evolves into the category of cliche, I get sick of it. lol

“Everything happens for a reason”, especially ticks me off. Like duh! We live in a world of cause and effect man.

This question was asked months ago.

Yeah, that’s the one I hate.

@6rant6 Dude, I already gave a similar answer on another question. Sheesh. :P

“Get off the computer and do the laundry.”

That one is really, really fucking annoying. OK, honey.

“God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.”

What a discounting statement. Tell that to someone dealing with cancer or loss of a child or any of hundreds of personal tragedies. If that were true, there’d never be a suicide.
