Mine would be 'vile'

Seems to be used on here about 1,000 times a day to describe everything from food to serial killers

'Are you on glue?' I didn't really get why that was supposed to be so amazing when it started, and I'm surprised to still see it now.

This to shall pass.

PC. I would have MNHQ implement a find-and-replace to swap it for "considerate". Might get a bit confusing on the new Gaming topic though.

"Talk to me about..." gets right on my tits for some reason, although I don't see it here as much as I do on another forum I use.

"Professionally offended"

"SN brigade"

Entitled, because it is completely misused.

'vile' always makes me think of Linda La Hughes in Gimme Gimme Gimme (was her catchphrase )

AbbeyBartlet Fri 13-Jun-14 16:26:36

Red flag - very overused and often overdramatic

Mrsjayy Fri 13-Jun-14 16:26:59

"do you think he might have Aspergers"

when it's a thread about a dh just being a selfish arse. And like (most) people who suggest it have any idea what AS really is. Humph.

Am didproporti

Yeah 'Americanisms'

If you say 'Mom', apparently that's an Americanism.
A prom is an Americanism.

Is it really an issue to some people that we influence America and vice versa?
