@Carolyn72: haha I say facetious all the time. 

I say “absolutely” a lot.  Especially at work.  “Can we come do a trial class?” Me: “absolutely!”

And if I don’t like something I say “I’m not a fan” as opposed to saying I just don’t like it.

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Hah, I use this.  

I caught myself using “untenable” a lot this week too.

And I say wonky! It is a technical term. Very scientific.

Bloody, as in Bloody He!!.
A couple alternate words that are very popular with the Brits, roughly translating to female genitalia.
Probly, instead of probably, which my FH always makes fun of me for.

I watch a lot of British television, so the language has rubbed off a bit. So, maybe they aren’t words not used by many people, but they are words not used within my circle.

I use bloody hell and bollocks all the time to my FI’s amusement, oh and “Balls!” which one old man said in front of me and I about died of laughter.

I also say “Man Alive” all the time and people look at me like I’m from another planet. Nope, just a different decade I suppose.

I’m from Boston, so I say “wicked” constantly.

My favorite comeback is always “You’re a _____”. For example: “Have you seen my shoes?” “You’re a shoe.” It’s not only unhelpful, but also nonsensical…perfect.

@Treejewel, I totally forgot about “Balls!” lmao I say that one all the time.

@pinkandsparkly, You and my FH. Jeez! I’m craving Pita Pit. “You’re a Pita Pit!” What does that even mean?? What is wrong with you?? lol Always. Every time.

I use a lot of British sayings – bugger and whilst are probably the ones I use most frequently.

I am also quite partial to the word plethora and use it all the time – definitely one of my favourites!  

There are heaps more but I just can’t think of them right now.

My fiancé says intense all the time. Whenever he can, he says “that’s intense.” I always tease him and say it before he does, when I know he’s gonna say it.

My go to saying is “Only on tuesdays” Some random jerk calls me a B*tch I say Only on tuesdays… It pisses people off and it still works even of tuesdays!

When I was younger I used to tell my sister I hoped she got ran over by a Toenail truck. I couldnt get in trouble because their was no such thing… I was odd child…

We also told my little brother that being called a good samaritan was bad So that way we could piss him off then when he went to my mom she would be like so…. now me and my friends still call eachother a good samaritan from time to time just for a laugh…

I also call Fi a McA$$hole it started when we were at mc donalds and I wanted chicken nuggets and he ordered a big mac just to be a jerk so McA$$hole started…

I use that as a comeback all the time too! Ha! My Darling Husband has started doing it too but mostly he just thinks I’m loony :). I also love to call things “hinky”, picked it up from Abby of NCIS.

My mom and my sisters all say “a really lot”. I never even realized it until my fiance pointed it out. For example, we’ll say, “I like that show a really lot!” I guess it does kind of sound silly 😛
