Because you're worth it.

Are you really worth it? Who says so? L'Oreal, who have never met you, but want you to buy their overpriced products.

'Make <insert country here> Great Again'; no one has ever revealed when that greatness actually was.

'Look' or 'Listen' when someone - usually a politician is speaking in reply.It implies that the other person is not listening etc.
Really patronising

The false modesty phrases all over social media;


“I’m truly humbled to be have the opportunity to support the limbless albinos of Kathmandu by having a holiday in South Africa and walking up a mountain”
Never get this - why not give the money you spend getting there. for hotels etc to the charity? Why should people sponsor a holiday?

‘We offer our sincerest condolences’

or ‘Our thoughts are with the family and friends’

How can such a well worn, go to tropes be ‘sincere’ or particularly ‘thoughtful?’

Watching Masterchef and hearing the cooking of vegetables "three ways" or "four ways".

No chef, you're not having a ****ing orgy with a soggy courgette.
