Overused phrases or sayings

"Gone viral" and "deep dive" used to bother me, but I've gotten used to or numb to them. Is there a saying or phrase that you think is now overused?

"EPIC!" And most any other gamer-internet lingo that people have taken to saying out loud. "Lawl" for LOL is another one. Just annoys the heck out of me.

Also always hated the phrase "Cream of the crop" or "The cream rises to the top". I don't like the word cream.

"I'm not a rasist, but"

If you're not a racist, you don't have to clarify what you're going to say before you say it.

Whenever I hear that, I know to tune the rest of it out. Like, thanks for the warning. I know who to avoid now.

I get my hackles up over the guru stuff like "mindfulness" and "live your best life." I also dislike bossy art like "live, love, pray" and the different variations of "keep calm and ______." To be fair, I never noticed the bossy art thing until my girlfriend pointed it out and now I can't unsee it.

Lots of travel and music stuff shows up on my YouTube feed. The trending video titles that bug me use "First impressions of ____ !" and "My thoughts on ___ !" Harmless, but seeing them make me care less about the topic.

It's the hashtags that kill me. It's not my thing, but I can handle most of the mom stuff like #momlife, #proudmom, and the like. But I draw the line at #girlboss and #mompreneur (both usually MLM related). I also dislike #boymom (usually used when the boy is misbehaving).
