Re: Sayings that you hate now
Another thing that's not really a saying but a reflexive habit: People accepting a compliment that's not really directed at them.
"You have a lovely wife."
Oh, did you design her yourself?
So what is the purpose of saying "You have a lovely wife" to begin with?
And what would be the proper reaction to that statement in your opinion?
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
