I’m guilty of overusing retarded past of the point of decency, no lie.

I hate the word facetious.  Seriously. It just sounds evil and hissy.

I hate the word “derive”

It usually means I have to prove something mathematically, which I really hate doing

Case in point: spent the last 5 HOURS of my night proving one of four problems. Sigh. I’m fun tonight!

Feelin’ ya on retarded! My FI’s sister has Down Syndrome (I also hate when people call it Down’s… it’s not Down’s….It’s Down) and we’re really sensitive to that word. 

I guess I’m more of a grammar nazi than anything. Like when people write “per say” instead of “per se” or something like that. 

My ex-roommate called a chest of drawers a “chester drawer” and said both supposably and irregardless, neither of which are actual words.

Ointment… such a gross word.

By The Way I totally agree on the R word.  I think it’s really problematic.

Not to be too picky, but I also hate when people accidentally type Loose for lose.  Hate it!

i hate the word ain’t

It bothers me and is improper. yes, it is in the dictionary (but, I still don’t believe it is a word) but it is only supposed to be in the single form and most people use it for every form. Is it really easier to say than the other conjunctions? I really don’t believe so.

It’s not actually a word, but I hate when people say “irregardless” …just say “regardless” people!

@laylabelle, we call that a charlie-foxtrot in miltiary terms =] It’s a little more socially appropriate to splurt out lol

Oh, I hate the word tits. I dunno why, it seems very derogatory. Just really bad slang. I much prefer boobs or breasts, haha.

Yes! Those bug me too!! 

The Fiance can’t stand it when people make a place plural – like calling Kroger (a grocery store, if they’re not in your area) Kroger’s. Drives him batty.
