I never paid much attention to the phrase “at the end of the day” until my DH called it to my attention. Now I never miss the overly used expression. What else could one say instead?

My husband says "You Know" constantly.  Drives me nuts.

 

The other phrase I hate is "Long Story Short"  only to be followed by a really long story.

 

@mimom -

If my sister starts a conversation or email with "long story short", I laugh, then she laughs because we both know in the middle of her recitation (which has become a book), she will repeat several times, long story short.

I hate the saying "To Die For". The hosts say it alot about whatever item they are selling. I really don't get it and I don't like hearing it.

"Meet Cute" - when 2 people  (typically a couple) meet in a cute and adorable way. Can't stand it! Why does everything have to have a name or label?

 

I don't like "baby bump" either.

Like baby bump,  I think grow a family is fairly cringeworthy.
