What's a real kicker for me is the term "you know" after every sentence.
You know?

Ah, ha ha. I deserve that.

I also dislike when people use cutesy rhyming ("tighty-whities") and slang alliteration ("brown-bagging it.")

The word "preggers" makes me a little nauseated. No pun intended. I never understood how those terms slipped into our mainstream vernacular. "Preg-preg" is even worse...

Preggo makes me feel a little weird since I have three thoughts. I think of an eggo, then I think of the spaghetti sauce, and then I understand she means that she is pregnant. By that point, I'm all off track.


"Prego" means 'you're welcome" in Italian, so maybe that's how that got started.

She: "I'm with child!"

He: "Prego."

I hate when people call garbage or trash "rubbish". I do not care where they are from it simply annoys me. I also find the words moist, pocket, ointment, and dangle to be gross.

Here are some of my "favs", BTW.. "favs" is one I actually don't like.
Also, poker face, (what the heck does that mean)? Another is, "Riddle me this", also, "whatever" and "knocked up"....as bad as preggers.
Any oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp or icey hot. "Pause for thought" is another...I picture a dog scratching his head trying to think about something? I use that one myself sometimes though.

Stop being "anal" about the subject.
I hate that word. reminds me of anuses.


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.

P


I always thought it meant you're acting like you have a stick up your ass.
Somebody that's too rigid. So they're being anal.

Quote Unquote
I agree that ones annoying especially when the person curls their fingers into a half claw to signify quotation marks.

Another one:

ORIENTATE

Not a word, people. Orient, oriented, orientation.


Think - Class, classify, classification. You do not classificate something, why would you want to orientate it, too?


I think ex president Bush could classificate something.



I don't like it when somebody says disorientated for disoriented

Haha, I would like that much better. I don't mind Prego.

Usually it will be used in this context though:
*College girl, with a tendency to use the word like, browses gossip sites*: OMG! LIKE, Kim Kardashian is PREGGO! I CAN'T WAIT TIL I'M PREGGO."
Me: I'm sorry? All I heard was, "blah blah blah, I'm a dirty tramp." (hey man, Mr. Deeds was a cool movie)

Poker face means not showing any emotion as if "when bluffing in a game of poker"....

I'm guilty of the curled finger quote signage as well.......*sigh*

I personally don't have dislikes for any catch phrases except when someone says "You mad bro?" or "You mad brah?", hearing (seeing) either of those makes me want to metaphorically go home run hitting with a Lousiville Slugger on thier arse.

Another one: Irregardless. Used to be, when you heard someone use this word, you automatically knew they were an airhead. Now there is a whole generation that defends its use as a real word. Sad.

You're right, that's what it means.
As in "tight ass". But not in a good way.





Another is, "Riddle me this"


Check.
(I am actually borderline allergic to it. < shudder >)



Anyhoo gets on my nerves, so does woo hoo


Check. (Especially the second one.)

And on a related note, I am not particularly fond of the appendix -Nazi to signify anyone who gives a damn about something.
As in, "grammar nazi".


Man, I hate a LOT of things!

I hate hate hate the term "smoking Nazi," particularly since the people using it are the ones going around gassing others.

Well you know, as someone, you know, who does transcription for a, you know, living, I can guarantee that, you know, everyone does this, you know, to some extent.

That is an accent, not a phrase.

I think it is because Prego had the jargon: its in there.
When I was pregnant we said I was Prego, well because it's in there. LOL

I have no problem with it.
