Phrases that are finger nails on chalkboard to you

Mine is blah, blah blah...."my friend" spoken by anyone that is not my friend. 

 

This is a phrase that is endearing when spoken between true friends, but used to rope someone in to whatever is being talked about is a huge turn off to me.  When I mentioned it to DH, he also said that it is an immediate distancing or beware sign for him, when spoken by those other than friends. 

 

So what is the phrase or word that you do not care for?

"It's a MUTE point". No, it's not. It's a MOOT point.

Things don't usually bother me but there is one thing I absolutely hate is when someone says "pregers" or "knocked up" instead of pregnant!  To me it just seems so crass and uneducated.

I hate those sayings meant to console or make yourself feel better like "Everything happens for a reason,  When one door shuts another opens,  etc etc."

Irregardless and orientated drive me insane. I’m not sure why it irks me, but I don’t like when someone says, “No problem,” in response to, “Thank you.”
