Most Annoying Sayings, Phrases & Expressions

Which sayings, in your own personal humble opinion make you all "Bro, here's the thing: I am literally going to kill myself if you say that one more time. Just saying'. Don't get mad. We're still all cool with each other, no homo. Ya feel me?"

The Top Ten Most Annoying Sayings, Phrases & Expressions

1 Just sayin'

Translation: I just said something rude or snarky or sarcastic or something blatantly obvious, but adding "just saying'" at the end makes it all better. - Blue_Devereaux

I hate this. just saying'

2 Bro/brah

Bro is alright. Brah is another story.

When did this become a thing? I'm not your bro or your brah. I guess it's the current version of "dude" or "man".

Who says it? Bros under 25, especially dumb, white frat boys. - Blue_Devereaux

Sounds like your calling someone a bra

Dude hey bruh

3 Ending a phrase or sentence with an upward inflection

Programming guides in a nutshell - Alkadikce

What is it? Making every statement sound like a question.

Example: The character, Michelle, from the film "American Pie" repeatedly says, "So, this one time at band camp..." with an upward infection.

Who says it? Once upon a time, it was mostly done by dumb, white girls/women under 30. Now, it's an epidemic, and boys and men are doing it, too. It makes you sound stupid and immature. - Blue_Devereaux

Gah! Really annoying? People sounding like they're asking questions all the time? It's so gum itching? - Britgirl

It's confusing

4 So, here's the thing

So, here's the thing: I've been guilty of saying this, too. I'm vowing to stop. Why do we need to preface our statement? Is it a warning of some sorts for the listeners to prepare themselves? Why can't we just state the thing?

Example: I could have started this comment by simply stating, "I've been guilty of this, too." - Blue_Devereaux

5 Overuse of "literally"

I literally just ate a potato with literally salt it was literally salty.

Who does it? People who do not understand the distinction between "literally" and "figuratively".

Example: Hearing some of these stupid phrases literally makes my blood boil. (If my blood actually boiled, I'd be dead, literally. ) - Blue_Devereaux

People have destroyed its meaning because of this.

6 IMO and IMHO

Unless you are an expert on a particular subject matter or have some first hand experience with the subject matter, then everything you say is just your opinion. You don't need to explain that to me. I get it. And I take it for what it's worth. There is no need to remind me that you're just spouting off. It makes you sound weak. Which of the following sentences sounds authoritative? "In my opinion, the death penalty should be abolished." vs. "The death penalty should be abolished."

Even worse is writing or saying "in my own opinion" or "in my own personal opinion". If it is your opinion, then necessarily you own it, and it is personal to you. (Of course, this is all just my own personal opinion. ) - Blue_Devereaux

7 Ya feel me?

I can almost guarantee that if you're asking me that, then, no, as a matter of fact, I do not "feel" you. People who use this expression tend to use it many times in one short conversation. - Blue_Devereaux

8 No homo

This is homophobic

Who says it? Boys and men under 25 who are very insecure of themselves and their sexuality.

Do they really think that if one guy says to another guy, "Hey, nice shirt," that the 1st guy wants to have sex with the second guy or is attracted to him? Do they think that adding "no homo" makes everyone else think that they are 100% hetero and would never, ever, in a gazillion, trillion years try to hide their gayness by claiming their not gay? - Blue_Devereaux

9 It is what it is

Translation: I've absolutely nothing to add to this conversation, but I feel the need to state the some fact is, in fact, a fact. - Blue_Devereaux

10 O.M.G.

The Newcomers

? Drama Queen

I find this phrase to not only be contagious, but annoying. Not only is it offensive to women who have emotional challenges, but to people who have developmental disabilities who might have issues controlling their emotions. Whoever invented this phrase really needs to take a look at the negative impact this phrase has created.

I find it offensive when people call me this because I have challenges with emotional control. The word should be abolished.

30 sksksksk
31 What's wrong with you
32 How you like me now?
33 number 1... and number 2
34 Smile, it might never happen
35 I get it

Overused by everyone at this point in time. Instead of just saying "okay" or "I understand", using "I get it" in a conversation sounds like the person saying it has heard something a thousand times in a row, when in fact they are hearing something for the very first time.
Example: Look*, you want to go out with your friends tonight instead of doing homework. I get it. But you have to understand our rules.
*Bonus annoyance. Use of the work "Look" to start a sentence implies the answer should be "Where? "
