    “Everything happens for a reason” to indicate some kind of higher plan is responsible for an event. Really bugs me, although I don’t necessarily express it

      “I don’t understand how I’m gaining weight, I eat and exercise PERFECTLY!”
      ”I know doctors hate this, but I looked up _____ on Google”
      ”I have a list today”
      and definitely, as already listed above -
      “I know my body”

        I have no intention of answering what you asked , I will buy a little time and redirect.
        I say this to patients sometimes before I answer their question because I don't want them to think they asked a stupid question. Sometimes it really is a good question.

          "I know my child."

          "He doesn't eat anything."

          "She has a very high pain tolerance."

          Anything related to 'black mold'.

            I can't believe I forgot the ever popular, "that's a fever for me".

                “To be honest…” to begin a statement.

                Were you otherwise going to lie to me?

                  "Meets or exceeds expectations". Is that supposed to be a compliment?

                    yes! and another misdirection will follow.

                      I hear that one from patients, and family members..........."my normal temperature is 96.0 so if the thermometer says my temp is 99.6 then I've got a fever"

                          "cautiously optimistic" I guess that means you like to be an optimist but have no idea what's going on.

                          ^^ completely agree. Hard to hear after my wife's 3rd miscarriage in a row. I'm sure god had a critical shortage of babies and needed to borrow some.

                            That's usually when I say, "Well, the only prescription is more cowbell" and that's when I pull out my cowbell and start beating on it. They typically just leave by that point.

                                i hate that one as well, along with "everything turns out alright in the end."

                                those things are.... just not true.

                                people hit the clinical ones really well, esp all of the annoying stuff we hear in the ED.

                                i will say that one phrase that is 100% of the time followed by staggering idiocy is "we the people."
