Overused words and phrases.  I posted a comment about this on Facebook . . . thought the Bad Movies crew might have some stuff to add:

#1 - "Teachable Moment" (when I was a kid this was called a screw-up)

2.) "Girl" or "Girlfriend" in the realm of a female calling her female friend that.

Two of the most over-used ones here are "at the end of the day" and "leveling of the playing fields".

"Like." Oh yes, it's still around, and it's still annoying as hell when it's not being used in a simile. Especially if it's flung around the conversation where most people would simply say "um" or pause for half a second to collect their thoughts before speaking.

Oh I'm with you on that one. "Like" drives me nuts. Now I'm prone to pepper my speech with some "um's" here and there. However, I've even seen people use both "like" and "um," and frequently. Or even stick in a "you know" before the "like."

Overuse of the words "basically" and "obviously" also annoy me. "Basically" either means the person feels he/she is dumbing down the thing they're explaining, or they don't have a clue what they're talking about and adding the word "basically" makes them fill in some words. "Obviously" drives even more nuts, and you see this done by public speakers all the time. If you're having to explain a thing to me, then it certainly isn't obvious, or you wouldn't have to explain it, would you? Or maybe the person is explaining something to a group, and they say some point they are making is obvious. Well, it may be obvious to some, but why would you assume it's obvious to everyone? Thanks for making the rest of us feel like morons because we don't "obviously" get it.

"Always the last place you look." I know this is an old joke, but it's still good observational humor. Well, yeah, dips**t, if you found what you're looking for, and presuming that you're not going to keep looking for something once you've found it, it's pretty clear that it's going to be in the last place you look.

This is like the "You Know What Really Grinds My Gears" thread. I love it.

"Actually".  Anyone who's read more than two of my sentences has probably come across it  TeddyR  It's actually a completely pointless word to stick in a sentence.

Another good one. So, does that mean that if you don't say "actually" that you are saying something that is NOT actual?

That's like people who say "honestly." Okay, are you normally lying to me and only telling me the truth when you preface it with "honestly?"

"FML"  people use this idiocy way to much.  I can understand if you're doing a status update on FB like for example;

"A plane crashed in my backyard and destroyed my swimming pool and shed and now I have reporters everywhere asking me questions and I can't get out of my driveway FML."

However most of the time its usually something like this...

"I just ran out of milk FML"

 Lookingup

Really is life that harsh for such minor things?
