"Let me"

I just decided that the most overused phrase at my company is "let me".

"let me go back and check with Bob"
"let me look into that"
"let me do some research and get back to you"
"let me take a couple of days to think about"

I literally just overheard THREE different phone conversations around me that were all asking the person on the other end of the line to "let me". And when I thought about it, I realize I DEFINITELY say it too. In an email I wrote earlier today: "Let me give Tanya a call to see how her group allocates that in their systems and we'll go from there."

We need a new phrase.
