"Instantaneously" (Grrr just say "instantly"! It's shorter, means the same thing, AND SOUNDS BETTER!!!)



I am sorry but

Instantaneously, pretty much means can happen
Instantly means is happening

They are different words, its important not to confuse them.
They are not interchangeable.

I hate it when people think words are interchangeable when they dont know the meaning


Grrr...

"Reach out to the community"

"Could of"

Both make me want to give the user a mighty slap across the chops.

When news reports say alleged or allegedly after someone has been arrested for know crimes. If a person is caught in the act that causes them to be arrested. Then it is not alleged. Simply that person did it.

"cross pollination" is another one. What, we're all flowers now???

"network" - 'It would be good to have our people network with your people...' (GACK!)

It's a joke made at expense of people on the computer all the time, because they tend to be overweight and obesity causes more mouth breathing.

This may annoy you, but it is done for VERY good reasons. To protect the accused from mob justice. I mean the media is already pretty bad about labeling someone guilty before the verdict comes down, if they weren't required to use the word alleged, it would get MUCH worse. I think saying alleged, even IF the guilt is beyond doubt upon capture, is ALWAYS a good idea. It's part of being innocent until proven guilty.

I really hate the saying: "Cheer up, it may never happen".
I don't even know where to begin.
When I went through a rough time and I was so depressed and upset I could have cried at any moment, also my dad had died only a short time before that. I did look mislerable but I had to go shopping despite me wanting to stay in bed and cover myself with a blanket; and a woman on the till [checkout] said the above to me. Trust me, I wanted to jump over the belt and hurt her badly, that is how RUDE and inconsiderate I found her saying it. Instead I just looked at her with an even madder face than before.

Do these people not realise that if you look unhappy than 99.9% it 'has already happened'? And that your stupid comment just fuels the fire?

Anyway, that one above I hate most. The next ones are 'racist' and 'bigot' used as a cheap, last resort. Stops any discussion and makes the one who said it 'better than everyone else', without having to come up with anything tangible.

More importantly, the facts are; regardless of appearance, a person is "innocent until PROVEN guilty...in a court of law (by a Jury of their peers)". That last underlined part is important. For this reason it is simply incorrect to say anything other than "alleged / allegedly" when referring to a perpetrator prior to a finding of Guilt.

This is all well and good, but it's still an aggravating, dumb-ass, word/saying.

Not to mention it speaks to the level of intelligence of a person such a saying would resonate with (not in a good way either!)

I read through all the responses and didn't see the one that came to my mind on reading the title.

Many of those already mentioned are certainly irritating, but the one I despise the most is "circle jerk".

Gah. I could hardly stand to type it.
But, there it is.

Here's another of my (non) favorites...

"Hit me up" - Meaning 'text me' I guess.

or...

"Hit me up on FB"

or...

"Tweeted"

or...

"Trending" - As in 'trending on Twitter', Instagram or some other social media crap

Good catch. And that is exactly what I was getting at; the proven part is DEFINITELY a requirement there in order to call someone guilty. No matter HOW guilty they may look when they are captured.

"Hella" (something) - is another one.

"Like" (as a descriptor) - "I was like just sitting there, and she like came over and got all like in my face. And I was like...REALLY?" (Go back to the Valley, girl!)

"Bro" - Just LOVE that one, right? Whenever someone says this I feel this sudden, uncontrollable, urge to grab a...tazzer!!
...until medium well done!

Of course it is. It's a derogatory slur. Just giving you a heads up on where it came from since you didn't seem to be sure about it.

That's my point exactly; I understand what the word is intended to mean, but the fact of the matter is it is an incorrect usage of the word. In fact, it's not even a "word", but two words and it speaks volumes about the intelligence of the person saying it. Physiologically speaking there is no actual derogatory connotation, only one imagined by some PC crowd using this oblique reference. If they had any cojones at all they'd just say "Fat, dumb, redneck slob"...but then they'd probably get their backside handed to them (like maybe they should). Instead they try to pass of some meaningless term, like it's code or something, as an insult. Just makes the person saying it look like an idiot.

I only realised a year or two ago that supposably is a real word...
dictionary.reference.com...
I suspect it gets used incorrectly a lot of the time. I either haven't found a use for it, or continue to use supposedly incorrectly.
(ETA: Found a bunch of interesting stuff about the difference between the 2, seemingly us Brits can forget all about supposable & its variations, it being something in American English...this warrants more investigateion...maybe...)

I have issues with the phrase & idea "fake it to make it", but that's mainly to do with the notion of lying to myself & other people.
