"Nothing to write home about"

I love reading anything about food in general. I am subscribed to food magazines, and many food blogs. I read restaurant reviews online before going out, be it on Menu Pages or Yelp.

In the last few years seeing these words "nothing to write home about" just makes me cringe. Every time I see these words in a review of anything I want to scream. I find this phrase SO RUDE for some reason, it really makes me crazy.

Are there any phrases that you see online or in the media that drive you crazy?
