    at the end of the day...

    that really gets me
    I was going to say that!

    "At the end of the day, I woke up and it was raining, which made the rest of the day crap" or something. IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!!!

    when people over use "actually" as in, "... it ACTUALLY is.."

    and, "It's not even funny." Isn't it? Why would it be funny in the first place?

    OH! and "I'm not being rude..." but you are being rude, and you know it, otherwise you wouldn't have said it!

    it feels so much better to get this off my chest

    "Literally".

    No, you are not being literal.

    "It was literally the size of a whale!"

    No. It was not.

    ARGH
    This. Haha.

    Also, "whoop" :| UGGGGH. It's not really a saying, but I hate when people spell "you" as "yhoo" or whatever the **** it is. It has more letters than spelling it correctly!? What's the point?!!!! I also hate when people end every sentence "...x" just GTFO. Or Type Everything Like This Because They Think They Look Intelligent.

    God, the list is endless.

    Agreed.

    I also don't like when people say 'He turned around and said...'

    As though everybody's just spinning around in this scenario.

    "Don't be angry if i say this..." - Yes, i already am...

    "I'm not going to tell you..." - After a mate informed me that someone said something about me (be it a nice thing or the other) and i asked who? they will say the pharse or when something pops out of their mind and canceled it but said those phrase.

    "don't take this the wrong way but..." how can you not take it the wrong way when you say that??

    and "no offence but.."

    "to be honest", "at the end of the day", are others and also when ppl end a ridiculous statement with FACT, like saying the word fact makes you right.

    my friend keeps going:

    "can i ask you a question?"

    and another phrase translated roughly from Russian as: as things go
    e.g: "as things go, i think i gave him X..." or "as things go i have to do X, Y and Z"

    obviously it sounds a bit weird in English, but thats because its an annoying Russian phrase.

    Haha, was just gonna say that one

    I dislike 'It's got to be somewhere!' when you're looking for something, as if to rule out the possibility that it's actually nowhere.

    I just hate it when people say things like "omg, cba, lol" in actual conversations (not on the computer or texting)
    What's the point???

    Then there's also "No offence..."
    IT WON'T MAKE ME FEEL ANY LESS OFFENDED!

    "no offence but..."
    WTF
    many people just assume that by adding 'no offence' to the beginning of a really offensive sentance that you cant take offense to it. i remember i had just spent £80 on a new dress - and the girl who i was with who dresses like a hippy and hates anything 'mainstream' was like "no offence but that was such a waste of money youre going to look just the same as everyone else, im not being mean id just be a bad friend if i didnt tell you it made you look ugly" and i got in a stress. and aparently because she had said 'no offence' at the bginning i had no right to..
