The most irritating phrases

In your opinion, what are the most irritating phrases that people commonly say? Is there a phrase that makes you angry just by hearing it? This does not include things like 'necks time', 'frowned a pond' or 'as a pose to'.

For me, "I'll pray for you" and "you'll understand/change your mind when you're older" always get on my nerves like nothing else. I'm not a violent person, but I could throw an infant onto a freeway over those.


Do any common phrases really irritate you?

Along this same line, I hate "I have ____ friends".

Yeah. Especially when it's just "NOT GONNA LIE" at the beginning or end of a sentence.

Everything he says is invalidated by hating on inflatable hoverforts.

On-topic, whenever someone prefaces what they say with sugar-coating. "You're a really great guy, but...", "I love the way you do X, but...", "It's fine, but..." Just spit out what you damn mean.

I hate putting this down too since I know I do it at least daily.

The point is to sound good, not consistent.

Yeah, whenever I hear it, I immediately take offense to whatever they were saying, because if they didn't mean it as an insult, they wouldn't have to say "no offense."

Except the only people who actually pronounce it "Erbs" instead of "Herbs" are pretentious hipsters in New York and Seattle.
