TOPIC: Cliches from hell...

Just a few of the cliches that make me cringe when I hear them:

-I have too much on my plate.
-Think outside the box.
-Work smarter, not harder.
-It's a God thing (I'm going to take some heat for that one).
-He/she wears many different hats.
-Give 110%.
-I'm peachy.
-Too many irons in the fire (closely related to the first one noted).

I'm sure there are others. Just can't come up with them right now. Feel free to comment and add your own...

What about "my bad"! That one makes me want to SCREAM! If it becomes necessary to say, "my bad," the fact that it is indeed "your bad" will probably be quite obvious.
:) But maybe that's just me.

A WHOLE NEW LEVEL, as in...

"They took it to a whole new level"

That one's really starting to bug me............
