Anyone else know people who say this and find it really annoying?

This one I always thought people used figuratively, not to actually mean a real spirit, as in "The human spirit is strong enough to endure the worst of trials". Though I never used the phrase "human spirit", its like you said its so engrained in our culture to use this term I never thought to question its use as a figurative meaning.

Yeah, it usually means "I'm Christian but don't go to church."

And I'm a vegetarian, but I love steak.

I'd say, "Show me a spirit, so I can have a frame of reference --"
