Please... Stop it With The Cliches!
I used to work for a guy who would use a cliché for everything... and I mean everything!!! His very special favorite was: "jump the shark"... UGH!!!
Ok, to be fair I use a bunch of clichés in my everyday speech too, but being a master of the King's English I think I know when to stop. But some people use way too many clichés, and after the two hundred thousandth time of hearing any one cliché it starts to lose its sting.
Here are some clichés that are overused and should probably be banned:
1. Money doesn't grow on trees.
2. To throw someone under a bus.
4. Been there, done that.
5. That's how I roll.
6. I know, right?
7. More bang for your buck
8. Outside of the box
9. You go, girl!
10. It is what it is.
Seriously... What should be added to this list? Which of these do you hate the most? The least?
I'm curious what ones you hear all the time that bug you!
