Put him to sleep A rant about euphemisms

I despise hiding what you want to say behind colorful phrases that just dance around the topic. Things such as , "She slept with him" are pretty bad also. I mean they did not get in their PJs and decide to take a nap together.
But our language is covered with these things. Adult Entertainment, Neutralize, and many others come to mind.
So besides my depressing rant, what are some of your most hated ways of coloring a conversation to not sound so real and to the point.

Also, sad to hear about your dog, they really grow on you. I hope you feel better.

I am sorry for your loss of your pet. They really do become like your children, and I am sure that when my "puppy" goes, there will will days of great sorrow and tears for me.

"Adjusting the antenna" sounds nicer than "Beating it like I caught it breaking into my house."
Although, I like to use the more creative language to see how many blushes I can get.
