Nope, Sandy... while they both might wet their pants when they sneeze, if they use "hackneyed," they are talking about something "lacking in freshness or originality." The new crime drama's characters are shallow stereotypes who engage one another in hackneyed dialogue

Sorry, Sandy... they might both wet their pants when they sneeze but ... if they both use hackneyed, it means they have both been talking about something "lacking in freshness or originality."

Sadly, no, Sandy... that means they have
both discussed things
"lacking in freshness or originality."

Sorry so late in giving the definition ... I am feeling
SO disorganized and crazy headed a lot l
ately!!

This is one of the few ones I have actually known too. But I consider it a challenge to take them all downhill fast.
