For me, when people say "just sayin' " after a comment, it seems rude. As if they don't care about your opinion of what they just said so they are putting you on notice that all conversation about their comment is over.

For example: "I think the government should spend more money on nuclear research...just sayin'!" It's almost like they should say, "There's my opinion, I'm entitled to it and I don't care what you have to say."

That's my selection of an overused saying or statement! What's yours?

"I'm just keeping it real" or something along those lines. Like that excuses whatever shit comes out of their mouth. Something like, "Your ass is as wide as a barn. Don't get mad at me. I'm just keeping it real."

I also hate when people say, "I could care less." It's, "I couldN'T care less."

One of mine is the statement "you know" it drives me insane! Another is "like".

I have heard people use both of them 10 times in a single freaking sentence. Grow up people and learn some effing vocabulary!

I use "just saying" when I'm being ornery. Never in a serious conversation.

When in a conversation or someone writing in a conversation "that being said". It's usually after they've gone on and on agreeing with the topic at hand. Now they want to give their "real" opinion.

Oh, I am with you on both of those, I am almost screaming at the television when I hear celebrities/sports stars saying 'you know' every other word. If I knew then they wouldn't be telling me!

Well I use like quite alot, but thats because im from North East England, we use it alot up there. "Fancy going for a pint like?". Just seems to sound right to us.

"Chillax" really annoys me, and before i came to Oz i actually hated the word "Dude", but now im here everybody says it so ive started saying it too lol. Another pet hate is when people apologise before they say something for hardly any good reason, its completely stupid and pointless. "Im sorry but....I think we should do this", "Im sorry but....I think we should go there". Why are you saying sorry!!!? lol

I also dont like people saying "Im offended". It has nothing to do with the words, but basically thats what people say because they want to whine and whinge about something. Thats what makes me laugh when people say "that offends me", they now think that because they are offended they have more rights than everybody else. Being offended doesnt make fuck all difference, so fuckin what, deal with it, or learn to take a joke. (obviously some serious things DO offend, like racism ect...)

Other annoying sayings:

"Ten Dollars says.....I can beat you at pool" (money cant fuckin talk)

"Easy Listening" (What? Listening is easy, you stay awake and it happens in fuckin spite of you!)

"Theres a bug going round" (What...just one? o.0)

"Science doesnt know everything" (Well fuckin obviously, otherwise it would stop)

"You're being racist" (When dissing another country, with the same main ethnic background. This really gets on my tits, for example if an Dutch person says to an English man "I dont like the English!" people think its racism. Its not, you cant be racist against countries, you can only be racist against RACE, hence the name racism, and the same goes for religions too. People think Jews are a race, they are not the're a religion, you cant be Racist against them because thats not what racism means. Races are Caucasian, Black, Arabic, Asian ect ect...)

"The awkward moment when..." intially started on facebook with a couple of funny groups, but its expanded into loads of pointless and stupid groups most of which, wouldnt even be a fuckin awkward moment. "The awkward moment when you realise you left your mobile phone at home". Yes because thats really is a embarressing situation isnt it.... you couldnt just think "I'll get it later.." Jeez

Anyways ive rambled on enough, you can tell im bored lol

A new one seems to have raised it's ugly moosh: saying "hashtag" before the irritating phrase, for example, "hashtag, just saying". Annoys the crap out of me.

Oh .... the " it is what it is " one really sets me off .... what originated as a phrase that was intended to encourage contemplation and deeper study has now become a standard for slackers to use to try and explain anything that they are trying to avoid because they don't want bothered ...... They think they sound profound & wise ....... My reply is " Well Poindexter DO THE MATH ! THERE'S SOMETHING TO BE LEARNED HERE " I'm sorry but to hear it a handful of times in an evening in different situations & within different crowds is just toooooooooooooo much !!! #*:##%*...............

This is me exactly. I use this phrase all the time and, when I do, you can be pretty sure I'm being ornery and/or snarky!

BTW, "ornery" is one of my favorite words ever!! evil4

The word "amazing." Pizza, or a pair of shoes or Gaga's looks do not amaze, as in so strange or whatever that they can hardly be believed.

The exclamation "Oh my God!" drives me potty and people saying "a myriad of..." instead of "myriad". Also "hence why" instead of "hence". It makes me grit my teeth so I don't end up ranting at them.

This one gets me too. If I did do that, I'd be running for the bathroom. It leaves all kinds of gross images in my mind.

My husband refers to this act as a "verp". That's gross too.

I don't care for any of the hundreds of overused sayings.

But I love to use one and twist it.

Empty-Handed ; I just used "Empty Hearted" as a expression in a story.

Oh, My God ; I might use "Oh, my gawd" instead.

YES ; I use a foreign expression to suit the story "Ja" ; danish for yes.
