    What phrases or statements make you cringe?

    I heard someone yesterday say "We can do that ASAP."

    The problem is that ASAP means As Soon As Possible. So of course you can do that as soon as it is possible to do that. That's the definition of "Possible."

    Maybe I just think to damn much.

    We need to talk.

    It’s not you, it’s me.

    "You know what YOUR problem is?"
    "I need _______. -No hurry."
    "Are you SURE?"

    "State of the art" - is so overused.

    Also "Amazing."

    Yeah, Clinton wore that one out to death during his administration. That's what he kept repeating to Lewinsky when he was not having sex with her.

    “Beware of the man with one gun”

    “You wouldn’t want to get shot with it” - to justify caliber effectiveness.
