Oh, and I’d die a happy woman if I never heard the phrase “no worries” again.

I hate it when people use the term “sick” meaning something cool. Ex. “The jump was sick!”  Makes no sense!

And I REALLY hate it when people say “I’m fine” all the time when they are not!

You know… I never thought that people were actually saying “would of” or “could of” etc.. i always just assumed the correct term, would’ve, could’ve… etc. I’ve never seen in written with “of.”  

And what is nom nom nom? never heard that.

My annoyances are bad grammar… especially “I SEEN” – drives me crazy. I cringe. Also, I know a girl (love her to death though) that calls her vagina her vaj. gross.

I’m guilty of texting prolly, but never actually say prolly.

“Yes and no.” 

That is NOT an informative answer to a question. I would rather have someone look me in the eyes and say nothing than say, “Yes and no.” Ahhhhhh! Same with “It is what it is.” But that has already been appropriately hated on. 

Why do people say these things!?!?

“Hella” in California = “mad” in NYC

“My bad!”     Oh, you mean, Sorry? Yeah, apoligize. Thanks.

Also, what was it? CP time? I had to look it up when someone was late to FI’s house for his sisters prom, the limo was waiting, and her friend was joking about how she runs on CP time.

Apparently, it means “colored people’s time.” Ugh. So irritating. It still irritates me.

@danadelphia: Ah, a kindred spirit! I too refuse to use “FI.” Occasionally I’ll write “FH,” but more often than not I just refer to him as “The Guy.”

I hate hate HATE it when people say “men” instead of humans or people. Unfortunately, I forgot to mention this to my uncle, who was the pastor who married us… So I completely tuned out of his little sermon at our ceremony because it was peppered with “men” this and “men” that. My husband doesn’t agree with me on this point, but I think it is absolutely offensive. Why can’t we refer to all people of both genders if that’s what we mean? I don’t care if it’s old fashioned and standard English, it’s not acceptable. Period. Irregardeless (just kidding!) our wedding was awesome!

What else I hate:

For shizzle. I had to break my husband of that one the first time I met him.

My little brother says “It’s all good” ALL of the time. He had lots of other phrases that drag out a conversation and really mean nothing…

Ooh, and when my mom says, “I’ve got a bone to pick with you.” What does that even mean? I’ll tell you what it means to her–I’m in big trouble! Haha, it hasn’t happened in a long time but those words make me feel 6 years old.

I hate when people’s signatures to emails are “Best, Jenny”  

 

Best?  Best what??? Best wishes? Best friends?  Best buds? or did you mean to say Beast?  Cuz I’m pretty sure that’s what you meant.

I would like to clarify that “hella” is a Northern California thing… not a Southern California thing.  The word drives me batty!

I know its used a lot on here but I hate “To each their own.” No matter how well intentioned, it always sounds like the speaker means “That’s the worst idea I’ve ever heard.”

Reminds me of the line in Mean Girls:

Regina: Oh my God, I love your skirt! Where did you get it?
Lea Edwards: It was my mom’s in the ’80s.
Regina: Vintage, so adorable.
Lea Edwards: Thanks.
Regina: [after girl walks away] That is the ugliest f-ing skirt I’ve ever seen.
