- "To be honest" and variants (Sherri has a great riff on this)
- "In my humble opinion" (yeah, we get it - you're not so humble)
- "We haven't always agreed, but I really respect you" (uh huh)
- "I really want to know what you think" (why? so you can ignore it?)
- "There are no small parts, only small actors"
What are your pet verbal peeves?
