People Break Down Which Phrases They Absolutely Hate

A cliche is something that is a part of our everyday lives. Cliches can take the form of plot devices, characters, or phrases. And cliche phrases really tend to get on some folks' nerves.

Some phrases that you see on social media all the time: "About last night..." "My heart is full," "My ____ family," etc. Did a few of you cringe even reading those words?


There are even more than that. And you're not the only person annoyed by them.

u/anonyoose asked:

What phrase do you absolutely hate?

Here were some of those phrases.


Just Grating

"Take me back" and "I did something" on social media

25 year old couple on facebook who just bought a house: so we did a thing

walks_silently

"this one" f**k my life, it makes me irrationally angry. "happy birthday to this one", "date night with this one", "so thankful for this one".

Not The Talk

"We need to talk"

With its older sister-phrase, "Come see me in my office."

Thank you SO MUCH for doing this! I thought I was the only one.

I've had so many supervisors/managers that call you into the office for a review or discussion and then totally blind-side you with something you had absolutely no idea was coming! Issues that may have happened weeks, or even MONTHS earlier! Often, just "perceived" wrong-doings, or misunderstood situations by fellow employees, and you're left sitting there thinking "is this really happening?" or "when did this even happen?"


You're automatically stuck, looking shell-shocked and guilty because you have no idea how to respond. It's almost strategically set up to trap you, even when you haven't done anything wrong.

Anytime I've been in a supervisory role I've always given my reports an opportunity to recall situations ahead of actually discussing them in private. Approach the employee and say, "Hey so-and-so. I was made aware of a situation that happened at such-and-such time. Can you pop into the office after your break this afternoon so we can talk about it?"

This way, like you say, Cleverusername, they have time to ponder the situation for a bit, recall the specifics of the situation, and articulate a thoughtful response to the inquiry, instead of catching them like a deer caught in the headlights.

Reddit Roasts Itself

There's that old joke, a man has a heart attack on a plane full of redditors, the flight attendant shouts "do we have a Doctor on board?!" 5 people people immediately stand up and say "I'm not a Doctor but..."

Not The Precedented Times

"In these unprecedented times..."

LocalTurn

See now if it was "We're all in this together, once we know that we are we're all stars and we see that" it would be so much better

Nobody:

Car commercials: "In these unprecedented times, buy a Toyota!"

Not Living In Fear

is everything

restored/destroyed faith in humanity

is everything you've ever needed

saved me

They really need to stop this sh*t. I aggressively block any page on Facebook that uses headlines like this.

Also, f**k news headlines that tell me "why you should be afraid". I'm pretty sick of the news telling me to be afraid of everything.

I Did It So Can You

Saw a post just today of a girl who traveled the world and "found herself" and "started living life and so can you" kind of stuff.

Like no, I cannot also do that because you did. I'm not drowning in money and vacation time. I have to keep up with my blasted rent.

The Myth Of Respecting Opinions

"You have to respect my opinion."

No I don't. You can voice your opinion, and I'm allowed to ignore it, criticize it, debunk it, ridicule it, or think you're a giant a**hole for it.

Karen Keeps Comin And She Don't Stop Comin

"You're gonna have to figure something out."

Usually said to an impossible situation that someone else has caused, but expects me to fix.

Often, if three people are expecting me in different places at the same time and I tell someone they're just going to have to wait. "I don't have to wait, you need to figure something out."

No Karen, I am not exempt from the laws of physics, I'll be with you in a moment.

One We Know All Too Well

"The customer is always right" No the f**k they aren't. Actually it's usually the opposite. This being a common phrase just gives a**hole customers an excuse to be a d!ck to minimum wage workers because they think they can get away with it and get whatever they want

People Imagine The First Thing They'd Do If They Get To Heaven

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
