Why I Hate the Stupid Saying "It Is What it is"

Stupid saying 1. It Is What It Is
      Our lawn is tickling our nose, we need an undertaker for our marriage, and our checkbook hasn’t balanced since Reagan was president. But this stupid saying gives us the perfect excuse to leave things alone, and be as lazy as we please.  We should be saying, "What can we do to make things better?" and praying for wisdom.
Stupid Saying 2. Good Luck
         If someone says this to me, I politely respond, “thank you.” But under my breath, I counter it with, “I don’t need luck. I have God on my side. He will protect me, help me, and give me wisdom.”  I don’t do luck. I do faith in a God who has promised never to leave me alone.

Stupid Saying 3. It’s All Good
     Oh, really? Are the people who say this blind, deaf, or both? If we’re at Baskin Robbins, Wilbur Chocolate Factory, or Starbucks and you say this, okay. Otherwise, nothing is ALL good except Jesus and Heaven, and we’re not there yet.  

You didn’t know I was this sarcastic, hmmm?   
Do any popular sayings irritate you?
