@panterapeach: it’s okay I am guilty of using lol too much. I think it’s just a habit for my fingers to type it and don’t realize I am using it. Oh well! 🙂

I’m definitely guilty of some of the above.

I’d have to say what irks me the most is when someone starts out their post with “Ok Bees” or uses the term “Bees” (or beeZ) in like every other sentence. Yes, just because we’re members of this site we’re technically “Bees” but we don’t need to be reminded of it every time you post! I was guilty of this right after I joined WB but that stopped soon after.

Also, when people can’t take the time to fully spell out words but instead type stuff that would resemble something that a 14 year old who’s passing a note in science class would write. “Ne1” know what I mean?! *insert eye roll here*

ETA: Oh, I forgot… If I read one more post thats in ALL CAPS or bold, I’m going to scream!

hahaha love reading these posts

I also hate the term “Cheers” when people say bye or thank you.  It’s fine if you’re Australian or Scottish or whoever originally started this, but I can’t stand it when people at work say it.  Bartenders or wait staff that say it bother me the most for some reason lol.

I hate “epic” and I hate when people say “FAIL!” and I REALLY hate it when people say “EPIC FAIL!” gosh…I want to punch them.

Oh man I can go on for days on this one so I’ll concentrate on the worst offenders.

1. LOL.  Especially when it’s after every sentence.  It makes me feel like I’m conversing with a giggly teenage girl instead of an adult woman.

2. People that use an exclamation point!  After every sentence! I’m sure what you’re writing is very exciting!  I hate feeling like I’m about to pass out by the end of your post though!

3. I hate the word “hun.”  You don’t know me, I’m not your “hun.” It drives me equally crazy when women around my same age call me “hun” off the boards, too.  Unless you’re at least 40 years my senior, calling me “hun” sounds very condescending.

4. Text speak.  I think this should be a bannable offense.

5. Page long posts without paragraph breaks.  Is it THAT hard to go back and re-read your post after pressing “send”? Chances are, you’re going to have a hard time reading your own post. If it’s hard for you to read, it’s likely hard for everyone else to read, too. Go back and make some damn paragraphs.

6. This isn’t grammatical or confined to a particular word but it makes me absolutely CRAZY when Mr. Bee will post something and it’s immediately followed with 10 “omg Mr. Bee, you’re so smart and witty!! Hee hee hee!!” posts.  Or “yeah, Mr. Bee is RIGHT everybody!  Tsk tsk on YOU!!” I’m always tempted to post “quit being such an insufferable brown noser!!” after.  But that would be snarky.

7.  The words “amazing” and “epic.”  They are so overused, they’re being stripped of their meaning.  I’m sorry, but a movie or a T.V. show is not “amazing.”  I’m sure your Taco Bell lunch was very yummy, but “amazing”?  Really? 

Ugh.

“couldn’t care less” and “same difference” are the ones I hate the most!

I know this encompasses more people on the boards than not, so please don’t hate me but I have a very hard time with the use and abuse of the words ‘super’ and ‘cute’ to describe everything. OMG your furbaby is like so uber-super-duper cute. Ugh. Why are there not other ways of describing things anymore? What happened to pretty, beautiful, gorgeous and nice? It really takes any kind of meaning out of the word ‘super’ and the word ‘cute’.

I’m guilty of some of the above too.  I say Hon and sweetie all the time, if you knew me then you would understand.  But remember those from the south are more intended to do speak like this.

I just hate when people don’t understand you when you speak to them or when at places you have to repeat yourself several times until they can get it right! 

Using words “and stuff like that.” when describing things they do.  We had a photographer whom we interviewed with who kept saying “I can do this and stuff like that.”  Say what you mean dang gone it!  LOL  This is why we are NOT using him.  LOL

You know what grinds my gears….?

  • “At the end of the day….”
  • ……”you know what i mean?”
  • Using the term “ghetto” as an adjective, when referring to something being cheap or tacky.

@panterapeach:

With so many possible pet peeves, we’re all going to be guilty of some of them!

I’ll hop on the bandwagon regarding “preggo,” “preggers,” and text-speak (I wonder if this last one is generational? Maybe for the 20 year olds it’s not an issue).  I also dislike “hubby” or “hubs.”

I also hate people scolding others that a wedding “isn’t really about the couple; it’s about the families.”  That is certainly true for some people, which is great. But it’s not true for many others, and I could certainly make an equally compelling case that a wedding is ONLY about the two people pledging themselves to each other for life, and everything and everyone else is extraneous!  The meaning of weddings isn’t one-size-fits-all.

@mightywombat: as one of the younger 20 somethings I’ll chime in and say that “text speak” drives me NUTS!
