so – just curious – what words or phrases that are popular now, do you HATE that everyone else uses?
I ask because I absolutely DESPISE the term “Man-Cave” I just think it’s so incredibly rediculous.
My husband hates “At the end of the day” because it is SO over-used and never used correctly.
What words or phrases can’t you stand?

“I don’t know” is a phrase I cannot stand. It drives me into an unstoppable rage.

It bothers me when people use the wrong words entirely- I had this crazy boss that would say (over and over), “You have to use your INITIATIVE!” And point to his brain.

emb – I COMPLETELY agree. I always correct my students!
I hate when people shorten words like “vom” for vomit and say things out loud like JK, LOL etc. I dislike internet speak.

I understand the dislike for the word but… it is a pretty old word. So most people don’t know that regardless is the proper word to use.

Ginormous . . . it’s like hearing fingernails down a chalkboard to me. Also, unnecessary abbreviations.
