    the word "values" which seems to translate into whatever christian conservatives value

    and when people say "bleep" in the place of swearing

    and even if it is true I still hate the phrase "you have such beautiful eyes"- it just makes me think of the pick up line you hear in EVERY chick flick

    Yeah, I catch those, too. It's an NT thing.

    I much preferred Charlie Sheen's line in Hot Shots: "That's the whitest white part of an eye that I've ever seen."

    Another good tack is to be more specific about it: "I really like your eyes. Especially the left one."

    Another one who really doesn't like "I don't mean to offend you, but..." or "I hope I don't offend you, but...".

    I just find it so insincere.

    Probably the most annoy phrase for me is "you're cute"

    DUDE. The fact you are saying it means it's your opinion. Have the guts to just state it without tacking a stupid, mealy-mouthed disclaimer on the beginning or end of it.
    Like Dana I only use imho very rarely. Theres only certain circumstances for instance where the person I'm talking to is being aggressive that I'll use it for the most part.

    the word beautiful in general is appalling, its tripe now

    so you're that superficial ?
    Hence why it's rare for me to say anything like that to women. Except the second one, I'd never say that.. that's just

    I use this one the same way I use imho, only in certain circumstances when I want to make it absolutely clear to the person I'm not saying it just for the sake of saying it to appease them.

    I really don't have a problem with most of the phrases people have mentioned. Many of them I find to be idiomatic, and so they don't bother me. For example, redundancies like "whole entire" can be used to comic effect. I think there are also examples where people have expressed displeasure with the meaning behind a phrase more than the phrase itself...things like "I'm sorry you feel that way" and "So what?" are legitimate, it's just the intent that causes problems.

    I think that there are two categories that do bother me though. One is the tired aphorism used when someone has nothing else to say ("everything happens for a reason", "I guess it was just meant to be"). The other is text speak. I concede that text speak has a comic use, but I'm referring to when people are just lazy.

    Oh, and "with au jus" really gets my goat
