I recently watched a movie where one of the characters talked about how annoying certain phrases are to him: phrases such as ‘ASAP’ and ‘FYI’. This of course led to a search to find the most irritating phrases. Glancing through the list, not only do I hear them on a regular basis but also, I am guilty of using a few of them myself.

So, in no specific order, here are a few of the phrases that people find most irritating:

General consensus
With all due respect
Shouldn’t of
I personally
Rounding the corner
Fairly unique
The reality is
At this moment in time

There are many more irritating phrases than just those listed above. If you are interested in seeing more, a quick search on Google will result in multiple lists.
