(Closed) the word makes me itchy…

It always bothers me when my mom (in particular, other people too but for some reason her especially) uses the word “fussy” to mean picky or particular. I’m fine with the word itself, and when it’s used to refer to, say, a crying baby or toddler. But I guess it irritates me that the same word can mean “particular, choosy,” because I think it implies that being particular or choosy is akin to acting like a crying baby or toddler – and I don’t think that’s fair!

(end of rant)

@troublesmom:  Re. fiance(e), it always makes me a tiny bit crazy when people don’t observe the difference between “fiance” (masculine) and “fiancee” (feminine). It’s because I’m a language teacher and thus a word nerd … and I get that English doesn’t have the same gender system, etc., but it still applies!

I hate the word “drawers” too.. it sounds like I’m not even saying it correctly..!  On a more random note, the name “Aurora” (from Sleeping Beauty) makes me inadequate too – I can’t pronounce that right either haha.

@MrsStrawberry24:  I second this.

Also, apples.  If someone even talks about apples in front of me I get chills.  Yuck.

@sarahbabs:  HAHA I have a friend who hates the word “moist” too. And “tub”.

I hate “wifey” and “hubby”. “Tits”.

I have the same thing about ‘fiance’ as well.  I think it’s a little bit about it being a french word.

To me certain peoples pronunciations bother me, not so much the actually words.
