I hate it when this happens

Trying to think of a word, similar to "adage" or "a common saying." I've been using Thesaurus.com and other sites to find the word I'm looking for, and I can't find it. I've been through at least 20 or 30 different synonyms, and none of them sound right. They all sound too... too formal. I think the word I'm looking for is more colloquial, maybe even slang.

The annoying thing is, even some of the more informal options like "saw" aren't right, either. Anybody got some options for me? It's beginning to really bug me, like an itch I can't scratch.

EDIT: You know, phrases like "Great minds think alike" or "Birds of a feather flock together."

EDIT 2: The word I need is "expression"!
