"Comfort Food" - for some reason i hate this phrase it really pisses me off for no reason.

"Bro or Dude" - whoever says it just want to say shut the heck up you hipster doofus.

Kids (twenty-somethings) that end every sentence with "Yeah....right?" The way their voices get high pitched on "right" to where it sounds like a question- I hate it!

That is actually what the word means and what is trying to be said. If you are being anal, then you are talking out of your anus.

The disease of the upwards inflection is spreading.

Ad nauseam was cool to say on forums ten years ago, now (imo) it's getting tired!

"Pay it forward".... how about punch you in the face forward?

And what about the word "AMAZING" ... when did EVERYTHING become AMAZING?? I can't hear that word even one more time in the next 100 years, I've maxed out on it.

Comfort food.... I chuckled at that, I have a 500lb friend who says that a lot. He eats to feel "comfort".

For the benefit of the posters above:

Free Dictionary: Anal-Retentive Personality

Noun 1. anal retentive personality - (psychoanalysis) a personality characterized by meticulous neatness and suspicion and reserve; said to be formed in early childhood by fixation during the anal stage of development (usually as a consequence of toilet training)


But, to the subject at hand: Yeah, "Going forward." I hate that damn phrase. Absolutely idiotic and redundant. It reminds me of when "at this point in time" became popular. Suddenly and forever, it was everywhere. We'll never get rid of it....

"At the end of the day"

"It is what it is"

"Hella-fun" "Hella-cool" ect

"I'm just sayin"

"Like" in every sentence

"You never know."

This little gem is generally thrown around during debates concerning religion and/or science (usually towards the end). It typically translates into "Agree to disagree", but I hate it soooo much. Maybe it's because "Agree to disagree" is another phrase I loathe like a nail gun to the scrotum.

ETA> because we're sharing here...

I also hate the sound of liquid being poured into a glass. Not a phrase or word I know, but it really is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

*shivers*

I get tired of "that being said"/"having said that". Just use a period and start the next sentence.
Also I know a woman who starts sentences (when speaking) with "Again..." as if she has already said what she's about to say and is reiterating, but then it turns out to be a new idea or topic she's going into. Moreover, let's do away with the use of "sorry" when disagreeing with someone ie "Sorry. That's not a ufo, it's clearly a bird."

There, that should offend damned near everyone.

A little while back I began noticing military personnel who wanted to sound cleverer than everbody new they actually were started saying "however" to often, and in the wrong part of a sentence. That used to really boil my nads.

Sorry but I disagree. Having said that...I do like your avatar. Again...sorry...

Hehe. Just kidding.


OP: I actually don't get bothered too often by certain words or phrases. Once in a while one comes around that makes me cringe. Such as "jelly", as in the shortened version of jealous (e.g. I'm so jelly). That really bugs me.

What about including the words we love? Like Scuba and Tubing!

I always understood it to be short for "anal retentive" or an alternative to "uptight". Talking out of your ass would indicate that the person didn't know what they were talking about...

There is one word that has become popular in the last five years that I cannot stand people using.

"Upcoming"

People use it to signify that what they are talking or writing about has not happened yet. It seems as if they feel no one would have figured that out from their use of future tense.

A truly egregious example was its constant use by broadcasters in reference to the 2010 Winter Olympics, back in 2009. It was almost as if they wanted to make sure we didn't think they were referring to the 2010 Olympics that occurred in 2008. LOL
