I'l start with a few so that 'You Get My Drift.

And confession time also, I'm guilty of using many of these.... and often smile

It's not rocket science

At the end of the day

Bad hair day

As you do

Bling-bling

Cheers

What goes around comes around

Pushing the envelope

Do lunch

No pain, no gain

Talk to the hand

I can see where you're coming from

Moving the goal posts

Playing hard ball

You do the math

and finally,

Thinking outside the box

No worries.

OK, it's not really cliche I don't guess, but my daughter and her friends have started talking in "Text speak"

OMG!
IDK
TTYL

and so on.

It's one thing to write it here on the web, but teeth grinding to hear people actually saying it!

I really like this thread. I write articles for DailyWritingTips.com (under the screen name Maeve).

These clich�s are grist for the mill. smile

Here's a link to an article I wrote about the way some people mix up familiar expressions:
Breaking the Log Jam and Buttoning Down the Hatches .

What I hate is when people use "near miss".

"Wow! Those two planes nearly missed each other." after two planes fly closely to each other.

Wouldn't that mean that they just collided? lol.

Somebody "lost his life" (in an accident, or whatever.)

How careless can you get??!! I'd check the police station if I were you - someone may have been kind enough to hand that life in...

What's wrong with "he died"?

I use No Worries all the time. I like it.

What I DON'T like is saying "how ya doing" when you just really mean "hello"... smile
