    These 2 sayings seem to be summarizations that may never die. Theyre as immortal as "suck." How old are they now?

    Its ok. I dont mind them.

    "Just saying" is one cowards use.

    I don't know if this fits, but I hate "it is what it is." Well fucking of course it is. It can't be what it's not.

    "For what it's worth"

    "In my humble opinion"

    "I can't wait to fuck your mom"

    "Remember to wipe"

    Why do people as an s to anyway?

    Anyway you slice it, at the end of the day, it is what it is and any full grown man that uses these cliches deserves to be thrown under the bus.

    "It is what it is" is a little annoying but sometimes it makes sense.

    How about "not for nothing"

    What does that even mean?

    Why do fighters and athletes in particular always say "it is what it is"?

    If you work in customer service and get in an argument with a customer the best response to complaints is "fair enough"

    Not too much you can say after that. My old boss used to use it all the time in the hotel industry.

    Just another way of saying, "Nothing I can do about it now."

    It's the most literal expression, thus apt for the least subtle type of person. They can't all be Yogi Berra.

    Ive also noticed when people RESPOND to others in conversations, usually banter, they start speaking with the word: No.

    No what? There wasnt a close ended question was there?
