It's a common figure of speech that conveys an established sentiment. Don't nitpick on trivialities.

It's not constructive and it's pretty juvenile.

>It's a common figure of speech

Only for certain audiences of a particular age group.

It's not globally common. It's commonality doesn't remove the other characteristics of it which ruins the entire point of drawing attention to how often it's used.

Please don't be disingenuous when the conversation needs to be more constructive in the first place.
