It's the way the people I know use it. Over and over and over and...yeah, never ends.

I need to think of more cliches.

This is less cliche, but rather misuse that drives me bonkers -- using "literally" when they mean "figuritively."

"I literally died!" Yeah -- um, if so, why are you still able to talk?

I also hate hearing people talk about "poisonous snakes" when they mean venomous. A poisonous snake would harm you if you eat it. Venomous snakes, I understand, can be quite tasty.

Someone I know says "I'm not being funny..." all the time, when about to moan at someone.

"I'm not being funny but..."

It's always followed by a rant of some sort, and I just think, why bother saying it? All that means is you ARE being funny (not haha funny) and you're also a bit of a grump.

It's really irritating.

A little off the subject but I once saw a sign in front of a cafe that said "Eat here and diet home." Duh, whatever!

Oh, this is a very Southern thing... we are always going "How are you?" when we pass someone on the street as opposed to "Hello". Once upon a time, things were so laid-bck down here we actusally had time for conversation - so this question made sense, and its kind of just hung on.
