"It could be worse" - Way to cheer me up there.
Yeah, really helpful.
And then there's the opposite: "It will
get better." No, it may
get better, but it may not.
"<insert producer/director's name> Raped my childhood" - Usually a convo stopper for me.
Wow, I've never heard that one. It's fine to use the word rape
metaphorically, but it damn well better be for something very
serious, because rape is that serious.
And my pet peeve of the day: variations on "I know exactly how you feel," "I totally understand," etc. Well, no, you don't. And you just proved it by what you said next.
