@savannahb:  “Shit happens when you party naked” seriously want to punch him whenever he says it.  Don’t get me wrong, I love him but I HATE THAT SAYING.  He also uses the word moist even though he knows my sister and I hate it.

My Fiance makes up words when he doesn’t know exactly what he wants to say. I thought it was cute in the beginning of the relationship, but now it drives me nuts. THIS IS THE WORD YOU’RE LOOKING FOR, now just say it instead of making something up that kinda sorta sounds like it! He also uses the phrase “you know” a lot in the middle and at the end of sentences. I’ve started doing that too just from listening to him…you know.

When he takes the puppy out & she pees, he’ll say, “She wet.” I’m like why don’t you just say she peed?!

currently SO is over-using the word ‘YOLO’, he says it like after every other thing he says, regardless of context. eg. ‘I’m going to the shop, YOLO’

He tends to over use words a lot, he’s also used ‘quality street’, ‘mint’ and ‘dope’ (all uses to desribe something that’s good) excessly in the past.

My Fiance likes to tag, “and everything,” to the end of his sentences when he’s telling a story. He also thinks that the phrase, “eat s–t” is the FUNNIEST thing ever. I think it’s tacky. He hates when I say, “calm yo tits.” I can’t help it! lol I just picture boobs flying all over the place. every. single. time.

My husband says ‘civilian’ when he is talking about anyone not in the military and it makes me want to rip my hair out. I asked him nicely to not use that word anymore when talking to me. Sometimes it still slips out  and I just cringe.

i am so happy to see this thread! I’ve been feeling like a monster thinking all these evil thoughts whenever SO and I have this conversation:


SO: Baaaaybeeeee (drawn out and baby-talkish) do you love me?

Me: yes. I love you.

SO: a lot or a little? 


I don’t know why this makes my skin crawl! It’s literally like everyday! I’ve literally started responded “YES! And I love you A LOT!” 


Any type of baby talk just kills me though. ::shudder::

Oh I thought of another one. My husband will say, “UMMMM WHAAAATTTT??? Like OHMYGAWD!!” like a stupid teenage girl whenever anyone says, “What?” I HATE IT! It’s the most un-masculine thing ever (aside from baby talk) and it’s insulting. I don’t sound like that! ARGH.

I am in fits over this thread…. I love the little bursts of rage that all the posters have said “I just want to punch him in the face when he says this” hahahaha… Anyway, I’m marrying an Englishman, therefore he thinks everything the way he talks is correct- it’s the queens English after all isn’t it??? But he says things phonetically, so he will question me like “do you mean ____?” (Saying the same word, but how he would pronounce it) it’s the same word of course I mean that!!!!! Like I say Data (pronounced in Aus like Darter), and he’s like “oh, do u mean DAYTA?” Clearly I mean that!!!

he also says “pump” for fart, which sounds like “poomp” with his accent- cringey!!! 

He also throws random words in that he thinks sound right… One day he said he said he had “constellation” …. Yes ladies, he was constipated.

I am a Literature major, so you can see how this angers me.(don’t judge me on my BeeBoards grammar lol)

he says “nip it in the butt” instead of “nip it in the bud” and “born with a silver spoon in your ass” instead of “born with a silver spoon in your mouth”  apparently he is just really bad at idioms, but it drives me absolutly insane. I mean if he took two seconds to actually think about the phrase he would realize it makes no sense! It doesnt matter how many times I correct him he just keeps on saying them his special way…sigh.

 ‘Yummy‘ in reference to certain sexual activites *cough*.

Made me cringe inside every time O_.

Thankfully, he grew out of that phrase.

DH has been using the word “meh” a lot, lately (like a verbal shoulder shrug, or showing indifference) and it drives me up the wall! If I ask you what you want for dinner, tell me a meat, a veg, a starch… something! Or if something is on your mind, talk to me about it–communication is good! Another phrase he loves it, “It is what it is!” UGH.

My Fiance wraps up almost every phone call with “well I’m gonna cruise…” and another favourite saying of his is “you’ve gotta be joking me” um no. It’s either “you’ve gotta be joking” or “You’ve gotta be kidding me”

My Fiance raps constantly!! He is a nuclear engineer and he will hear some thing and then start rapping. When his BFF is around his BFF , a kindergarten teacher, the BFF will act like his hype man. 

The raps are awful!!! Doesn’t even make sense. We were in Jos A. bank and they started that crap and the store clerk looked at me and said ” do they do this all the time? ” then said ” God bless you!”. sometimes the break out into dance and it is like “wtf!?!?”
