‘Bless you’, so condescending.
‘Can l get’
‘Bestie’
‘I hope this helps’, at the end of some advice.

Plus more that l can’t think of at the moment.
I didn't realise you had noted 'My bad' too Art. Isn't it a stupid phrase?
And I agree also with 'Bless you'. Sometimes I feel a bit ashamed of myself when sombody sneezes I don't say 'Bless you!". I usually say 'Oh dear!' rather limply and tell them I'm not religious lol

I say 'to be honest' a lot though. Makes me sound like I'm lying

'Know what I mean?' As if I'm stupid and I don't.

Re: Phrases that drive you up the wall

'Can I' instead of 'May I'

'Them ones' instead of 'those'.

Let's be honest

Spit the dummy

At this moment in time

'I was sat' instead of 'I was sitting' or 'I sat'
