The phrase I hate more than anything in the world is, “It is what it is.” For really? Because it wasn’t what it was when you didn’t say it 5 seconds ago? Only now is it what it is? Why, thank you for telling me it is what it is, when it is. Otherwise I surely would have thought it is when it wasn’t.
Confused? Yeah, me too. What exactly does that phrase add to a conversation?
It is what it is. Not what it should be.
Now there is a phrase I can get behind. It actually means something. And it’s usually true.
