@littlemisst08:  I haaaate the word ‘panties’.  UGHHHHHHHH.  To make matters worse, last time I went to my GP for a pap, he used that word.

“You can go ahead and remove your pants and panties, and I’ll be back in a few minutes.”

I wanted to barf right in front of him. It’s already the worst moment of my year, and you had to go ahead and say that.

I have so many, but really, truly can’t stand nom. Because it’s not a word, and also, are we 5?

Species, wifey, meh, Boo, when speaking of time and saying ish at the end like 4ish, referring  to legs as gams, preggo/ers, cock, … I’m sure there are more.

I get very irritated when people (ahem, coworker sitting in front of me!) cannot properly use the word FRUSTRATED.  It’s frustrated. Not fustrated. There does indeed happen to be an “r” in there. 

 

And and when people say stupid things like  “OMG! I literally just died watching that!!”. Did you really? Had you died after seeing that I’m pretty sure my urge to kill you wouldn’t be so strong right now. I literally feel the need to stab you with this bic pen. 

“It’s literally so cold out there, I think my brain froze!” Oh? Is that what happened? Here I thought I was just surrounded by idiots. 

“If my food doesn’t get delivered soon, I’m literally going to die!” Well, one can only hope. 🙂

 

(I apologize. I’m on my 18th hour of a 24 hour shift and I’m cranky.)

“Ya’ll”

I inwardly cringe when I hear it. I just can’t.

 

ETA: To those who said “making love”. Yes!

I’m rather confused at all the hate for “moist”. Why?

I hate “I could care less”. Because that means you care. I think what they mean is “I couldn’t care less”.

I don’t like moist either. I don’t know if it’s something about the way it sounds or the images it brings up…maybe both. Gives me chills.

Also don’t like:

Nom nom-when people post about their lunch/dinner and use that

YOLO- I’ve had so many high school students try to use this in legitimate research papers and I want to turn into the Hulk on them.

Swagger- Same reason as above, plus it makes you sound so cocky

Panties *cringe*-I just don’t like it. I say underwear instead

Aks in place of ask- I have so many students who do this and I try so hard not to correct them in front of everyone

Wurrsome (?? not sure of the spelling)- it’s teenage slang for “you’re annoying”

“She/he/they thirsty”-another teenage slang phrase for “horny”

Bougie- hate the way it sounds

Well…that’s just a few…

“Auntie”…. just say “aunt” for cripes sakes!

I also agree with everyone who’s hating on “abbreevs” like “totes adorbs”. Those tick me off.

@Diamond84:  It’s spelled “y’all,” honey, and it’s the best word ever. Laughing (Seeing it spelled wrong does make my skin crawl, as do alterations like “Y’all’s” and “Y’all’re”.)

@Nostawyn:  K, thanks for the correction, honey. 

@op, a word I cannot stand is  “y’all”. Thank God it’s never used where I live.

@littlemisst08:  I really hate the word “thigh” and the word “child”– which is why I always say “kid” (since I don’t think I can call my 5 year old a “baby” anymore.

I do occasionally use both words when required, but really dislike them for some reason!!

@Diamond84: Sorry, I really couldn’t resist correcting. I live somewhere where it’s used in everyday conversation (“Y’all! Really?” is something I say to students a lot), but I see it misspelled all the time on social media, in emails, on signs… It makes me want to bang my head against a wall.
