I know some girls on here say it, but I also hate “gorg” for gorgeous. 

Also, “Holla”…  Seriously, what does that mean?

gay, retarded, moist, most vagina cutesy names. Although I love the word “snatch” for vagina. It just makes me laugh everytime.

I got into an argument with someone once about “supposably”. She says it no less than 6 times per day and it irks me everytime.

I am guilty of a few of these though 🙂

I cannot stand improper grammar in general, but my biggest pet peeve is when people use I, me, and myself incorrectly and they think they’re using it correctly!  For example: Ms. Jones brought ice cream for you and I.

@mrsdoctor: “Nom nom nom” is supposed to be the sound of eating. It originated from the Internet phenomenon Lolcats — http://icanhascheezburger.com/ — where people post pictures of their cats and other pets with humorous, purposely gramatically incorrect captions. There’s a whole system of Lolspeak: “ohai” for “oh, hi,” “eated” for “ate,” “I can has cheezburger?” for “May I have a cheeseburger?” etc.

I didn’t read all of these but I HATE IT when people say “cool beans”. seriously… what does that even mean? I used to work with a 40 year old woman who that it was okay to say this on work phone calls and I wanted to turn around and say you sound like an IDIOT!

Ohhh ohhhhhhh and “what’s good” as opposed to “hi, how are you doing” or something else that even semi makes sense.

I once had a guy ask me “what’s good” at a bar and i told him I liked shiner bock blonde (local texas beer) and he looked at me funny and walked away.. probably thought I was a lesbian or something referring to a blonde… haha. Didn’t find out for a long time that he was actually trying to say “what’s up” and possibly even trying to flirt with me. Unfortunately I don’t have any interest in someone who would use such a stupid phrase.

These drive me absolutely nuts.  Some are from work, others are from wedding planning and general conversation with people.

“Thats the bomb.”

“You know what I’m saying?”, but after every other sentence.  Yes, I know what you’re saying.  You just said it. 

“Tip the needle forward” and anything with the word synergy.

“Oh, its whatever you want?”, but with a passive agressive face.  Why can’t you just tell me what you really want instead of saying that and then being annoyed about it? 

The most recent one is “Ackward Turkey!” followed by the ackward turkey hand gesture.  The most stupidest thing ever.

I’ll tell you which phrase I can’t stand these days…

“You and me could write a bad romance.”

I cringe as I type it.

I don’t like when people say OMG, Oh My God, for everything. Especially when profanity (or something else un-Godly) follows it.

I hate it when people use the word “literally” for emphasis when they aren’t using the word correctly.

@emb610: I second both of those.

Also, I HATE “git’r’done.” The one time SO said that I threw my shoe at him.

When I worked in the med field and people would say “preventative” medicine that would bug me too. Come on people, know the name of your own field…it’s preventive medicine.

The “pre-prepared” meals section at the grocer makes me grind my teeth, as well.

Ahhh! 

packpack instead of backpack is a big one. It’s also especially annoying when people just use words totally wrong.
