Top 10 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
1 Bro/brah

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.

Its use came back recently, and it's annoying as ever.

Bro is alright. Brah is another story.

2 Just sayin'

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

3 Overuse of "literally"

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.)

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

People have destroyed its meaning because of this.

4 It is what it is

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

5 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.

6 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 statements? Is it some sort of warning for 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."

8 Here we grow again
9 IMO and IMHO

Unless you are an expert on a particular subject matter or have firsthand experience with it, 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 you necessarily own it, and it is personal to you. (Of course, this is all just my own personal opinion.)

10 Riiiight?
The Contenders
11 No homo

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

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

12 Overuse of the word, "like"

Very annoying to hear someone say this word countless times.

In this one episode of Dance Moms, JoJo Siwa overused this word.

13 Shut the front door
14 I could care less...
16 O.M.G.
17 Yeet
18 This, that, and the other

Am I the only one who thinks this phrase makes no sense?

19 A form of the verb "to be" + "all"

"I am all mad at him because he was all drunk and puked in my car, which made me all, 'Bro, what?'"

21 Spill the tea
22 Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger
23 Not being funny, but...
24 Second of all...
25 Lol
