    It drives me cray cray! But that’s just my opinion, I hope no one gets butthurt over it.

    @FLBlonde93:  I agree with everything you said, including the questioning intelligence part…

    Totes depends on the phrase for me. Some make me cray and some are def my fav 😉

    Seriously though, I think I only like to use words that are shortened, but words like amazeballs and awesomesauce are silly to me.

    For me it’s a totally subjective, term-by-term thing, some I think are dumb and some I like. And I’m more likely to use them through text than speaking. I’m 23 and look pretty much like a high schooler though, so I feel like I can get away with more than people in their 30s.

    I don’t mind slang like that, but I do mind stupid terms like “DH” and “BFF”.  Ugh just say who you’re talking about!

     

    But for slang…the people I know who do use it use it ironically.

    @FLBlonde93:  yah I agree! I have friends that use those words and I just kind of roll my eyes to myself.

    I think your thread is awesomesauce in the extreme.

    I also think that deeply ironic statements are amazeballs.

    In other words, most of these words are risibly hilarious especially when they emerge from the mouths of anyone who has already celebrated their 14th birthday.

    I’m not a fan of that type of slang, and don’t use it. The only time I would ever use it is if I was being sarcastic. I also hate most shortened words. Even when I’m texting I write in full sentences with punctuation.

    @FLBlonde93:  I have never heard butthurt outside of Weddingbee. I assumed it must be a common American word since I see it here all the time, but maybe not if you think it’s weird too.

    @FLBlonde93:  Those words drive me crazy. It’s judgemental, yes, but I absolutely question people’s intelligence when I catch them using these buzzwords. I consider myself very lucky that my coworkers, close friends, and fiance don’t get caught up in it. I had to completely stop reading magazines like Glamour and Cosmopolitan because every piece of writing is absolutely riddled with this crap. 

    I hate stupid abbreviations too (don’t know if this counts in your cetegory or not) like vacay, fav, cray, etc. I have like $100 in gift cards to a store where I can’t bring mysef to use them because what I really want is a cardigan, but all they carry is cardis…
