Typical dumb phrases

I may have heard some form of this blog on Seinfeld.  I can’t be sure.

People should be more careful when they speak to avoid the typical dumb phrases.

To be honest with you…. – so what you’re saying otherwise is dishonest

Nothing personal… – usually means this is personal but I’m trying to be diplomatic so I don’t get sued

To be fair…. – meaning I’m usually an unfair person but this one time I’ve decided to be fair

Just saying…. – meaning this is what I want to say, I just don’t want people to know it’s coming from me

I’m sure we all can think of a few more phrases to be added to this list. I just can’t think of anything more right now.
