My Annual ‘Most Annoying Phrases on Earth’ Update


Let’s please spray egg creams in the face of anyone who dares to still articulate such worn-out cliches as:

“Suck it up”

“We’re on the same page”

“Let’s think out of the box”


“shout out”

“Shut up!”

“There, I said it.”

“Sweet!” or “Nice!”

“They drank the Kool-Aid.”

And “I’m in a really good place now.”

Ugh. These dispiritingly overused sayings are one utterance away from boring people to death. There, I said it.
