it might not be as good as you hoped, but it's probably not as bad as you feared. (mine)

it is what it is. (not mine, but a good one.)

we'll figure it out. (unofficial family motto.)

You have the right to your own opinion, I have the right to tell you it stinks, and vice versa.

Reminds me of: I may have been born at night, but not LAST night. IOW, I'm no fool.

This is mine.
I call it 'retroactive volunteerism'

A good use would be if during a conversation you find your interlocutor has recently moved.
Your response would be along these lines: 'You should have called me, I would have loved to help'

The idea is - you get the credit without actually having to do anything.

I use it whenever the circumstance presents itself.

Every family dinner, I offer to help clear off the table

But not until someone picks up the last plate
