Upon protesting that someting is not fair, to hear a canned reply of "Well, life's not fair." It makes me want to scream!
If life is so unfair, and only the people who don't play fair get ahead, then why are we wasting time and energy trying to teach our kids to play fair and by the rules? So they can get stepped on, shoved aside and otherwise put at some disadvantage by those who do not play fairly? I swear, non-violent person though I am, the next time I hear someone say that, I'm decking them!
The other current popular "sayings" that are really getting old and I'm sick of hearing are, "REALLY!?" and "SERIOUSLY?!" These two words seem to be uttered at every single slight provocation from dropping something on the floor to hitting 3 red lights in a row to disbelieving someone else's stupid action.
It's time for these folks to find a better way to express themselves.
