Thinking about it dinner is a pretty stupid word too...

How about "evenin' vittles"?

a reply to: XP100 Presumed innocent, when applied to people that have committed crimes. Especially when it was caught on tape. Another two others that annoys me is used by politicians a lot. Misspoke and backtrack. Misspoke = lying. Backtrack statement = caught lying about a subject or a person.

"I concur." Just be a normal person and say "I agree."

Any FB phrase like 'TBT' (Throwback Thursday) or 'MCM' (Man Crush Monday). Hate those!

"Alleged" every other word in news stories.

I'm almost offended by your remark because I'm an Indigo star-child, rainbow crystal light worker. Don't worry, the Age of
Global Enlightenment is upon us. I'm sending you loving vibrations!

I hate that phrase too, as it were.

I do not know if this happens in other countries but in England a lot of people say things in a foriegn language.

I get very irate when people mention a certain cycle race. It is the tour of france.

I cringe when I hear someone with a rural accent refer to it as "ler toor der fraan."

I think commercials over use the word Decadent. I hate hearing it. They use it to describe everything. I think it's idiotic. Another thing that bothers me is when people start a sentence with like this: "Frankly..." That one really irks me.

What about when they say a politician is "walking back" his/her comment(s)? What is that, like a do-over? Yeah, I said something stupid, but rather than apologize I will 'walk back' my stupid comment......Ughhhhh!

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


As in. "I toad her I wasn't coming over".


As in, "I retched out a hand in greeting". Not to be confused with: "Don't eat none of that tater salad. Zeke retched in it".

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

"Packet" and "Kit" do it for me. Im actually surprised that there is a term for the hating of certain words.

"It's all Good"

I hate this phrase.

If one phrase is going to boil my blood in an instant it's when somebody starts a sentance with,

"I don't wish to be rude"

By opening a statement you inccur that you do indeed mean to be rude but you wish to extract yourself from the statement.

I have never heard anyone say this and not proceed to be rude.

a reply to: nonspecific


i start my posts with :

" to be rude "

then launch

I worked with a guy that really bothered me. He's start almost every sentence with the word theoretically.
I also hate it when people say "Needless to say" and then keep talking. If it's needless to say, why go ahead and say it?
It also bothers me when people pronounce the word else like eltz. I really don't know why they do that. Is it a regional thing or what?

I do not wish to go off topic but there are so many things that people say that means something differently entirely.

Like when someone says "have you seen my car keys?"

I always answer that "yes I have seen them many times".

What they actually mean to say is,

"I am a highly disorganised person and as such never leave important things in the correct place so I will always know where they are. Due to my disorganised nature I am running late for an important event and would like you to find my car keys for me so I have time to do some other important things I have neglected to do in a timely manner".

Boils my blood

Packet has never annoyed before. Until now. Good one!

I also hate the recent overuse of "all in", which is similar.

a reply to: Skid Mark

On the topic of starting off sentences, I can't stand when 'pundits' on cable news shows start their commentary with "look", as in "look, the senate passed this bill to prove........"

I find it rude and condescending. It seems like they are talking to a 3 year old or a subordinate.

I agree, It is like they are demanding something of you without the option not to.

It's the same when someone says "You must admit". It is if they are telling you to agree before they have even made the statement.
