I'm not fond of "after all..." "it's only fair..." (phrases which always presage an attempt to "guilt" people into going along with something they don't want), nor of "It's Your Responsibility" (= Guess What! You are the stuckee, hah hah!)

Words I hate to hear:

"...I would do anything for love,
But I won't do that
No I won't do that"

Thanks for those two. I was made to believe that I was the only b*stard on earth that would find those phrases anything other than music to their ears.

Tom and Ray on NPR CarTalk have a list of Famous Last Words that always make me laugh:

"Watch this"
"that's odd"
"I've seen this done on TV"
"I wonder where the mother bear is"
"Are you sure the power is off?"
