cliche misery

 Plinky asked “What is your least favourite cliche?”

Easy I thought, what is the cliche that makes me shudder the most? It would have to be “you can say that again”. It sounds just plain stupid to me. In response to a statement that is either brilliant news or really negative, why would you ask the person to repeat themselves?

Cliches are interesting. For example, what does “life is like a bowl of cherries” mean?  Are you really motivated by someone who dangles a carrot in front of you? And is the grass greener on the other side of the fence? (It would probably depend on whether there are any sheep in that paddock!)

I could spend all day coming up with quirky cliches, but my favourite would be “good things come to those who wait”.
