You know when someone just repeats a cliché phrase to you? Something like "well that's the way the cookie crumbles" or "a penny saved is a penny earned" or "there's plenty of fish in the sea"?
I know there's a word for a (mostly meaningless) idiom/expression that is repeated ad nauseum. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
I will edit this post further with clarifications if necessary.
EDIT: The word I was looking for (platitude) had meaning more along the lines of "repeated so often it has lost any meaning". Katherine Lockwood picked out the word in the comments below
