    During a meeting: "Let's take this off line" or "I'll take that as an action item."

    Anywhere: "AS SEEN ON TV." <-- I cannot believe the prevalence of that phrase

    Small talk: "How are you?" Shows veiled interest only; the asker rarely cares

    "Shop till you drop." I really hate that one.

    "Vermin defeat the purpose of linoleum." Ok, maybe I made that one up...

    Here on the west coast US, I hear a lot of people saying "bra" instead of "bro". I realize that it's Hawaiian slang, but it needs to stay in Hawaii. I hate it!!

    oooh...just thought of another one right after I posted:

    "whatnot" (as in, "I like red shoes and whatnot"). Ugh...drives me nuts.

    'whatever'
    'like'
    'goes' (instead of: said, replied, exclaimed, shouted, whined, or any of the other multitude of choices)
    'I dunno'
    'getting on my nerves'
    'nuh-uh'
    'duh'
    'right?'
    'you know'

    Oh, that reminds me of another one...

    'No offense, but....'
    When I started hearing this one around the house I put the brakes on it in a hurry. It's nothing but a disclaimer for impending rudeness.

    I hate it when people respond to me with "I See"

    I think it comes off badly, especially in text forms of communication.

    Oh, oh...another one! When sales people interject your name every third sentence; that's so trite and obvious.
