The current most overworked phrase must be these words 'To be Honest' - why?

    ytsenoh, My sentiments exactly. You put it in a nutshell. I could not have said it better myself. Great response, thank you.

    peeples, Interesting! i can't help thinking that one should be able to express one's feelings without having to justify them with an 'In all honesty' phrase. Going to train myself not to in future. Ha!

    Thanks you.

    Lovely! I met someone recently who repeatedly used the phrase and I realized by the end of the evening that I would never trust him one iota! Thanks for the comment, it is appreciated.

    xanazacow, I feel it has been overworked so much that the words no longer imply what they mean. I think you are perfectly correct in your thinking, Thanks for your comment.

    Hi Aupriann Myers, Perhaps it was started by Politicians and Bankers!

    I find it is easy to become cynical in life, most unattractive! As ytsenoh says below 'it is what it is' Oh dear hope that phrase is not catching.
