It Is What It Is

If I had a dollar for every time I heard the phrase “it is what it is,” I’d have eleventy hundred dollars. I’m sure people said it before but I just don’t remember hearing it until this summer and now it makes me flinch. The seller of the house while pointing out potential flaws (after the deal was done, natch). The real estate agent when the first two contracts fell through. The characters on television shows.  The imam’s wife. What is going on?
