Phrases that annoy me
Pretty much what the title says. When someone uses these phrases I immediately picture that person as a slack-jawed mouth-breather. Feel free to add your own.

1. "I would like to extend a warm welcome ..."

Are you asking for permission? Instead of saying how you would like to extend it, just go ahead and extend that welcome. We're good with it. Really.

2. "I saw a dead body ..."

The word "dead" is completely unnecessary here. Just say that you saw a body. Everyone understands the body was not alive. Zombies aren't really a thing.

“We agree to disagree”. Just man up and say “we disagree”.

Well, I guess she's dead, then.
So sad.

It's always followed by an offensive comment.

re: Phrases that annoy me
"It is what it is" is the most worthless saying devised. And I let people know by responding to them, "well, it's not what it isn't."

Honorable mention: "Havin' fun yet?" It seems ingrained to redneck bumfricks to say this to ask how's your day going.

re: Phrases that annoy me
"Well, to be honest with you..."

It implies that you may usually not be honest in what you're saying.

I always remember Mr. Rackley (the guy who owns the house off highland with the Indian shooting an arrow and who moves the chicken) telling me that. He would always ask me some off the wall shite and I would start with "well, to be honest..." and he would say "dammit son, quit saying that...." and explain what I wrote above.

It's not so much that it annoys me, but his point was taken and now when people say it, I always think of his explanation.

This is just dumb and your reasoning makes no sense. There is a difference between a dead body and a body.

re: Phrases that annoy me
“Second of all...”

When you have a list of things to discuss or argue, saying “First of all” lets your audience know that you’ll be discussing more than just this one thing. So “second of all” is unnecessary. Say “secondly”, or “second”.
