What are some phrases that have no meaning because a) almost everyone uses them in the same circumstance; and/or b) are completely unverifiable/obvious/empty?
Here are examples of what I am looking for:
“Highway miles” - You see this all the time in car ads, usually for cars that have atypically high miles for their model year. Sometimes it’s in dealer ads, where they got the car in trade and have no way of knowing if it’s true. In any case, it’s unverifiable AND empty, since no one knows what percentage constitutes “highway miles”. Could be 90%, could be 40%.
“Free to good home” - Obviously some places are very picky about to whom they adopt, but it’s still meaningless because it’s always assumed to be true. Have you ever seen an ad that says “Free to bad home - we really hate this pet”?
I though about adding “How are you? Fine” to this, but sometimes people actually answer this honestly, so it’s not quite meaningless.
