Those who don't know cliches ...

... are doomed to write corrections about them:

Frank Bruni’s column on Wednesday incorrectly attributed the dictum that those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it. It is from George Santayana, not Edmund Burke.

If it's the phrase "everybody uses" in a particular situation, you should be the writer who doesn't.
