As for me, the most abused phrase that I've known is "I love you". Everyone can say it easily without the real feeling. Everyone can say this to win their own interest of whatever their purpose of saying it whether it would be wholeheartedly or just faking it... How about you, what's your point?

In my opinion the most abused phrase is "how are you?". People say it to everyone they meet or speak to, but very seldom are interested in the answer. In fact, often if you try and tell them how you are they'll get really irritated and cut you off. So why ask? I never say 'how are you' unless I actually want to know.

I got your point then. For me I never consider it as one of most abused phrase because you really need to know the response of that question. I mean you can't pretend it unlike the "i love you" I can pretend it to anybody without wholeheartedly say it..I said most abused because any body can say it pretentiously. But don't get me wrong that was only my own understanding and opinion..thanks anyway

I got your point. For me those phrase you mean, I never considered it as most abuse because you would use it in reality. What I mean is, when you meet a someone of course you will say "hi", "hello", "how are you" most often you said it in serious way, I mean it serve for its own meaning. While "i love you" you can say without feeling just pretending...therefore as for me that " i love you" is my most abused phrase...thanks anyway my friend..

yes I agree that one, I love you, is very overused and not always sincere. have a nice day is another one, people don't always listen when they say that, like a person could be saying I am feeling pain right now in my foot, and the person says oh I have to go have a nice day.

Yes you're right. Maybe that's the person's expression without even thinking the real score of the person whom she/he was saying that...I hope I was not that person ma'm...thanks
