“It goes without saying”…then don’t.

“Let’s touch base”…only when rounding third.

“Move the goalpost…who does this? A cheating goaltender?

“At the end of the day”…we’re all tired – of this phrase.

“It is what it is”…and what, exactly, is that?

“Going forward”…as opposed to traveling back in time.

“It’s on my radar”…it’s a faint, fading beep. But it’s on there.

“I’ll circle back”…like a vulture circling roadkill.

“Let’s take this off-line”…because we’ve bored everyone to tears.

“It’s neither here nor there”…Then where the heck is it?

“Low hanging fruit”…those who are too dumb to see through this charade.

“I have a lot on my plate”…doctors recommend six small meals per day.

“When push comes to shove”…you’re in bar brawl.

“Think outside the box”…the 90s called and wants their cliché back.

These cliché sayings have been used so often that they’ve lost their impact and make you look out-of-date.
