    "Think outside the box." This is especially annoying because the writer is encouraging creative thinking without doing any thinking himself.

    Any phrases referring to as you said in the question, 'credit crunch' 'difficult times' etc. One of the reasons the economic climate is in the state that it is, is because of fear mongering and over exaggeration by the media.

    Yes, lots.  And in newspapers too.  But there are so many of them I can't even begin to make a list!

    Hi,

    I totally agree with  'in my opinion' gets on my nerves big time that one.

    Although not a quote what really has steam coming out of my ears are those smart a-------s who have to use their fingers every ten seconds to make quotation marks in the air as they speak. That really makes me scream!!!

    I'm tired of people calling everything a "space". We don't have rooms, homes or buildings anymore everything is a space. The home improvement shows wore this out and now everyone else says it too.
