"It is what it is." - What the fuck else would it be? Outside of riddles and paradoxical speak, it's logically impossible for it to be what it is not. That would be like saying X = ~X. This saying is meaningless and adds nothing to an exchange. "Everything happens for a reason." - No fucking shit. I thought things just magically occurred with no clear line of causation. I have no clue why people say this. Again, it adds nothing to an exchange and borders on being meaningless. "That hit the spot!" - Ugh. I can't stand the way these words sound together. It's abrasive and makes my ears hurt; I cringe when I hear someone say this. It's physically uncomfortable for me to hear. This one just doesn't make any sense. It hit the spot? How did it hit it? What spot? What are you talking about?!
