@spaganya: hahaha “liberal!”  Yes, I second that.  I hate when people use “liberal” to describe someone as if it’s curse word.

My freshmen year roommate who I LOATHED said “Who does that?” all the damn time. I absolutely hate that question now.

“It’s a five minute job!”

one of the bosses at my old workplace said this all the time. Every time he said it to me I end up in staying late and doing over time.

Seriously, there is no such task that takes 5 minutes. Starting up my computer and getting the program running is already over 5 minutes.

I hate the term “BFF”.

I don’t hate it if you actually have a BFF – someone who is your best friend forever (and has been your best friend forever), but I am seriously over the media saying that so-and-so is out with their new “BFF” just because two celebs go to lunch! People, Insider, TMZ – I’m looking at you.

I am SO SICK of people saying that something is their “passion.” It has become so overused to the point that people use it about the most random things, drives me NUTS!

Also: “And the end of the day..” UGH

“It’s always the last place you look!” Um, duh, of course it is, because you don’t keep looking after you find it!

“There is..” instead of “There are…”

“Hubby,” “hubster” etc.

“Irregardless”

Confusing “much” and “many”

Confusing “less” and “fewer”

 

ETA: “As it were.” What does that even mean?! It’s so unnecessary.

“It is what it is.” Of course it is what it is! When is it not what it is?

“Whimsical”

in wedding world language and marketing. 

It reminds me of a snowfight in a J. Crew catalog. 

“Look at how whimsical we are! Lalalalala!”

Blech!

Oh, man. I have a ton of these. And I didn’t read all of the above comments so forgive me if I’m repeating some.

First of all, I hate lazy text speak, and stupid abbreviations like “prolly.” I also become filled with rage when people use “loose” for “lose.” I know a girl who refuses to type the word “and” and instead uses “an.” Her Facebook statuses are always stuff like “im goin to the mall wit mom an mike.” Makes me want to murder someone her.

I hate when people say “supposably” instead of “supposedly.” AAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!

Then there are the wedding related phrases that I hate. For some reason, I hate the term “FI” and I refuse to use it for my own fiance (you’ll notice that I always call him “the boy.”) I also can’t stand “hubs,” “hubby” or “DH.” It gets on my nerves when people refer to their wedding as “the big day,” too.

I can’t stand “prego” or “preggers.”
