"totes"
"emosh"
"amazeballs"

FFS. WHY?????

I had that reaction to negy (negative) when I heard it on Made in Chelsea

Yolo why hate a word. :p

Lord. NO.

You know what makes it worse?? She's a bestselling author - and undoubtedly the worst culprit for these words. I will NEVER buy her books.

Most people use those words ironically

JustDontWantToSay Wed 27-Aug-14 00:20:29

Because ICan - it's a total and unnecessary bastardisation of the English language!!

I'm cringe at "rellies," "pressies," "sammies," etc.

I've never heard "emosh" or "appaz," but I agree about "totes" and "amazeballs.".

"Yolo why hate a word."

I hate yolo. Because I'm not 14.

MardyBra Wed 27-Aug-14 00:23:23

I don't even know what emosh means.

JustDontWantToSay Wed 27-Aug-14 00:23:38

thatthing - not the ones I've seen using.

I agree O.P. Those words are so cringeworthy. I hate Whatevs for whatever and fucking detest spag bol for spaghetti bolognaise.
Why don't people write/talk properly.

You're right, so naff. Yanbu. 'Appaz'? shock God help us.

Language is always evolving, but these are just sick-making. Even if used ironically.

MardyBra Wed 27-Aug-14 00:24:34

You need to avoid anyone under 30 OP.

temporaryusername Wed 27-Aug-14 00:24:43

Ah now, I might stick up for spag bol wink.

Username12345 Wed 27-Aug-14 00:24:59

Yolo why hate a word. :p

That is lyk so rasist to people who believes in re-incarnations.

Dontgotosleep Wed 27-Aug-14 00:25:19

Mardi. I think emosh means emotional.

steff13 Wed 27-Aug-14 00:25:20

There's a mom at my sons' taekwando school who drives a giant Lexus SUV with a vanity plate that says "YOLO." hmm

MardyBra Wed 27-Aug-14 00:26:27

Thanks don't.

JustDontWantToSay Wed 27-Aug-14 00:26:39

Steff - no. PLEASE??

MardyBra Wed 27-Aug-14 00:27:38

It took me about three years to work out what "natch" meant. Although to be fair I didn't give it a lot of thought.

JustDontWantToSay Wed 27-Aug-14 00:28:13

Lol username smile Everyone should stop being rasist.

steff13 Wed 27-Aug-14 00:28:58

I assume that's what she has to tell herself to keep from having a nervous breakdown every month when she makes the zillion dollar payment. wink.

JustDontWantToSay Wed 27-Aug-14 00:29:05

What does 'natch' mean?? I'm 31 by the way.

MardyBra Wed 27-Aug-14 00:29:36

Personally I'm not a fan if "lol" either. Especially when used as punctuation.

McBear Wed 27-Aug-14 00:29:50

So what's natch? Appaz. I actually laughed out loud at that. Head flung back and everything.
