SO used to say “toodles” when he got off the phone with someone. Seriously. A grown man saying “toodles” instead of “goodbye”, like what on earth? lol

He grew out of it after a few weeks, though. I guess it was just a phase. xD

I hate the word panties…its seriously like nails on a chalkboard. Fiance is one of 5 boys and was appalled to hear this after we had been dating for about a year. He even asked “well what are they called then?” Ummmmm…..UNDERWEAR he apparently thought only men called their undergarments underwear and women’s were always panties -_-

Fiance and his parents are the only people I have ever heard used clipped as a term for stolen. No one else in our mostly middle class, mostly white, home town says that. It is always jarring for me when they do it (surprisingly enough this is a fairly common topic of conversation when we are visiting them). I called Fiance out on it when we moved in together and now that he doesn’t see his parents so much he has mostly stopped using it. I told him if he really wants to be slangy about stealing things he can say they were jacked 😛

My husband says, “That shit will buff,” as in a scratch being buffed out of a car. It’s supposed to mean that it’s not a big deal, but I HATE IT! Like if we’re running late, he’ll say it. ARGH! He got it from our roommate and I can’t stand it. I know there are other sayings that he got from our roommate, but I can’t remember them right now.

I’ll update if I remember any more.

This is seriously my new favorite thread! My new saying is going to be “period dot” instead of just “period” to emphasize a point. Hint: Did anyone read through that entire My Husband’s Former Friend thread yesterday?

@Kir32:  My Mother-In-Law does this! Sometimes I just want to finish her sentences for her because I get so impatient. It takes FOREVER for her to get through a story, and 90% of the time, I’ve already heard the damn story. OMG.

@PixelMePretty:  I work at a family owned business, so it’s a mother, father, and their nearly 30 year old son. He calls his mom mommy at work! Makes me laugh on the inside.

@Sunshine09:  Hahaha! My roommate says “Boom boom.” I’ve never heard that before he said it.

@MsMonkey:  I use terrible grammar on purpose ALL THE TIME! I’m getting my credential to be an English teacher, so it throws friends off when I say “What that is?” or “Where you went?” I don’t know why, but I think this is amusing.

Hahah these are so funny. My Fiance calls tv shows ‘programs’ but he doesn’t say it normally, he says it like ‘pro-grums’  Like a 80 year old man. He also takes FOREVER to say something. Ex: you ahhh err aaa, you ummm want a biscuit? Spit it out!!! Lol

My husband always says, “Mind if I turn TV on.” Like a caveman. There’s no article “the” before TV when he says it. It makes me crazy. “I’m going to turn on TV.” I’ve tried to get him to add “the” in there, but so far it’s been a fruitless effort.

@JenniMichele:  Haha! I know he knows the proper way to talk, but does it because he finds it cute or fun. It doesn’t bother too much at home, but sometimes it does when we’re going out because I don’t want people to think he can’t speak correctly, lol. Oh well. I actually kind of forget he’s doing it these days!

My husband says “I’m going to shoot to the gym” or “When do you want to shoot up to see your parents?”  It drives me absolutely bonkers. What is wrong with saying “go” instead?  Urg! Yell

@savannahb:  I feel like I should apologize…

The only way to stop it is to call his penis a winky woo. Winky woo woo if it is absolutely necessary.

I just remembered that my DH uses the word “nifty”. A lot. “Wow…that’s really nifty!”

What guy has said nifty since 1950? Oh right…my Dad.

My DH describes things as “hip” when he thinks things are cool. It makes him sound like a clueless old man or like Dr Evil. I cringe every time. I was just thinking the other day how I might have to break it to him.
