    Ever be sitting around minding your own business and then hear one of these zip by (from the TV, in a room full of people, etc.)? Here are a few I've grown weary of:

    1. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. (Right.)

    2. Everything happens for a reason. (Particularly annoying to me. Like I didn't have a say so in the matter. Manifest destiny and all that. I personally think life is more like one of those old magnetic NFL football games, where the pieces are set up on the board. Someone applies a little juice to get it vibrating, and off we go.)

    3. It takes a village to raise a child. (Gag me with a spoon. It should go, it takes a village to raise a child when parents fail to do so.)

    What say you?

    I say...you're right, B.C...some of
    these sayings get way over used
    and I'll have to think of some to
    add to your list...in the mean time,
    have a hedgehog! :smile:

    There are plenty more fish in the sea. :rolleyes:
    Just piss off and let me be miserable for a while!

    If I had a dollar for every time that someone said that to me, I'd be rich. :cool:
    No you wouldn't, you'd have about 4 dollars.

    Too funny! Actually now I see them
    in a big pic and not a thumbnail, they
    look more like porcupines, not the
    same quill pattern.

    bc,
    I hate 2 out of three of those sayings. The first one is true, but I hate it just the same. I usually answer with, "Yes, or you end up depressed or crazy."

    The second one people think is Biblical, but it is not. People say it as if it were fated that you were talking on your cell phone and didn't see the old lady start walking in front of your moving car, when in fact you were just being an idiot. My answer to that is, "Oh yeah, what is the reason for 30,000 children dying per month in the Sudan from preventable disease and hunger?" Or, "What was the reason 8 million Jews had to die in concentration camps?"

    Sorry, but the third one I believe in even when there is good parenting.

    You're right, the village whore is not the village's problem, yet the family is to blame. I got a sister, but the bitch is married. Best believe if she had tarnished the family crest I would have had no problem fragmenting her motherfucking skull. Well, not really. But still. :wink:

    I'm none too fond of what goes around, comes around.

    Not only do I dislike it, I haven't the vaguest idea what sort of profundity users thing they're delivering. As in, WFT does it mean?
