Starts with an "O", ends with a "G" and has an "M" in the middle. And double the pox if an "F" is added.

I agree with not liking "hot mess" and "prolly" for probably. Also I gotta say I don't care much for "no one" put together as "noone." For I'll catch myself reading it as "noon" aka 12pm.

My most hated phrase is:
The most bang for your buck!

It just makes me see red.
That's my purse! I don't know you!

I'd never heard of "fetch", and I couldn't figure out what it meant!  ;D  I'm not sure I see the point of replacing a "true" swear word with a non-offensive word when it's obvious that the word it's replacing is one of the big ones.  Then again, I've probably done something similar once or twice, so I shouldn't talk!

There's "I'm not feeling it", too.  I didn't realize how odd it could sometimes sound until it came out of my mother's mouth.

I've got a couple that bug me:

"Take it to the next level"

"Artisanal"

What's the significance of like a sunrise? Edited as phone and nursing don't work.

Veggies
buggies (for insects)
So fun! (whatever happened to the 'much')

Well, the 'much' seems to have migrated as in 'entitled much?'

Meggings  -- male leggings.  Nobody looks good in the dang things and they don't even look comfortable.

Reaching out to and going forward and taking whatever to the next level are what I find annoying.

I'm sorry, I don't understand.  I thought kick the can is a children's game where you literally kick a tin can.  Is it also a phase that mean something else too?

"It is what it is."

My boss uses the phrase to excuse the fact that her business is failing as a direct result of her poor choices, i.e. "Boss, here are the numbers from December and here is the list of bills that are past due." "Well, it is what it is."

Jeggings. The word just irritates me.

Shortened words such as 'rents' for parents or 'za' for pizza.

"From a procrastination standpoint, today has been wildly successful."

Kicking the can can also mean dying.  Mel Brooks used that visual image in 'Blazing Saddles'.

YOLO

I hadn't heard that until now. But every one knows, you only live twice, Mr Bond.
As for kicking the can, apart from being an old children game, there is also the variant of Kicking the bucket.

I'm curious about this one too.

I don't know if this is really trendy, but I absolutely see red when someone says "Shut yer piehole". It just sounds so gross and vulgar.  >:(
