hahaa, agree about the brown nosing of mr. bee.

for me, it’s posts that just say one word: “PREACH!” please don’t egg people on, lest the drama llama chimes in.

My biggest one is  “you know”  after every sentence.  My co-worker does this and I can barely keep it in anymore!  This thread is funny.

The latest thing I’ve seen pertains to the term “voila.”  Apparently, no one knows what it really is, so I’ve seen “Wah-lah” and other varients.  Same with “spiel” –> “shpeel.”  If you don’t know how to spell a word, look it up or don’t use it!

@ skyeatnight & Ryansgirl: My husband and I are so guilty of the “cheers” nobody says it in Texas & we hung out with a bunch of Australians when we were in Europe and they all said “cheers” instead of “thank you” and I love it!

Also, we stole the desciptive word of “beautiful” when describing food. “How is the dish?” “Oh, its beautiful.” I think its adorable!

I’m a copy cat,haha! Embarassedguilty as charged!

I am so guilty of calling those whom I deem to be sweet and nice a “doll”. Its a term of endearment for me, and I have said it a time or two here, but I dont mean anything mean by it……sorry in advance, if I say (type) or refer to anyone as doll…I’ll try to put it in check

Gifted.  We already have the word gave, we don’t need to invent new word that mean the same thing.

 

alot.  There is no such word.  A lot of people think it is one word but it is not!

Misspelling lose as loose.  I keep thinking why would you want your weight to be loose and floppy?

LOL. What a funny thread. I use caps to emphasise stuff ALL the time. 😉 I don’t like it when people shorten words when texting or online. b4 = before, u = you, etc.

@MissBoPeep: I love that comic. Since reading it that is all I can think about when I see “alot” written. I also giggle a little whenever people say “a lot” because I picture the “alot”.

@2PeasinaPod:i HATE that expression!!! also hate “hot minute”

I also hate “for the win” –my friends ex puts that on facebook all the time

hate jersey shore slang- “grenade” is like the stupidest and most uncatchy term for an ugly chick, i can think of much funnier (ok, meaner) ones.

This isnt an expression but I hate when coworkers laugh really loudly after a personal call or email because they want you to ask what’s so funny. I intentionally never do haha.

My MiL says a word that drives me crazy.  She uses the word ‘ain’t’ to mean:

  • right?

and/or

  • Isn’t that right?

 

So she states it with question tone at the end.

MiL: What are you baking?

Me: cookies but I’m not sure how long to put them in for.

MiL: It’s 10 minutes, ain’t?

 

AHHH!  Drives me insane!

@edgypeanuts: I can’t believe you are the first to mention the “lose” and “loose” problem. That is by far the mistake that drives me absolutely mad! It seems there are more people saying “I want to loose weight” anymore and I just don’t get it. Where did this originate from? I’ve always known since elementary school the difference between lose and loose. Your/You’re and their/there at least sound the same.

@lezlers: I’m so guilty of using too many LOL and I know I’m exclamation point happy. I’ve actually wanted to change that, so I’m thanking you for posting what you did, because I’m going to attempt to stop using so many exclamation points. I know I use way too many. (Now, see, I just caught myself. I was going to use one, but didn’t. Crap, I almost used another one. This is hard. )

I can’t stand “the boy”. It’s creepy to me because when I hear boy, I think of a boy (meaning high school or younger).

I also don’t like preggers or prego. But I’m guilty of using “hubby”.
