People.  (As when a supervisor looks over the workforce and says, "OK people."

Look on the bright side. They could say "folks".

"Now" - overused regularly on the news because, well what is it, yesterday in the audience's mind?

Maybe they're trying to be Zen. Be in the now.

Super.
In 2019 Superman is meaningless.

He is to me. I'm sick and tired of superhero movies.

I don't waste my time with political bullshit.

Well, you have the BS part right. CNN smells like Pamplona when the bulls run (in more ways than one).

Put me down for "Channels"  as in that crap you have to wade through on Yahoo to get to fantasy baseball stuff.

As in "Starlet Y channels Marilyn Monroe"

That sounds very 1980s New Age Shirley MacLaine, who fell out of her tree and landed smack on her head. I wish that Yahoo! hacks would channel some real news writers.

That's Antifa's favorite word. They likely would be rendered mute without it.

Met a lot of people from the UK in the past year or so and they like to say "Brilliant" in place of old standards like, excellent, that'll work, great, good, nice, I appreciate that.  Really peels my paint I tell ya >:(

I would like to nominate "For Pete's sake"

I'll accept your nomination. Evidently, you hang out with a lot of people in their nineties.

There's a long list of lazy and/or meaningless words and phrases I'm tired of.

Here are a few others:  Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter, Kardashian, LeBron, Mueller...

The first four see the First Amendment as meaningless. They're obviously tired of free speech.

You must hate interviews with rap stars. Do you know what I'm sayin'?

So, I hate it when someone starts a sentence with "So."    Sounds officious and condescending.  Makes me want to cut off his tie, tweak his nose or something.
