Obviously the use of hollibobs is a capital offence, , but until today I was prepared to let users of the other two off with 15 years-no parole. I am thinking that is too lenient, and they should attract the ultimate penalty too. What do you think?

All three of those words are really annoying.

cjt110 Wed 13-Dec-17 14:19:24

All of those are annoying.

Fam-a-lam is even fucking worse

PsychoPumpkin Wed 13-Dec-17 14:19:31

All very annoying but the most annoying abbreviation for me is Hubby. Just say husband, same amount of syllables, you’re not saving yourself any time by saying Hubby.

I feel the use of those words should be punished with some forms of medieval torture. They won't learn otherwise

JeremyCorbynsBeard Wed 13-Dec-17 14:28:52

Yes, all of them should attract the maximum penalty. Along with hubby. And preggers [shudders]

Off with their heads.

If things get really serious you could always shoot them.

BertrandRussell Wed 13-Dec-17 14:47:51

Oh, I would immediately go NC ( that's another one!) with anyone who said hubby..........

Hollyhobgoblin Wed 13-Dec-17 15:36:26

Minimoon. Instead of honeymoon

Ugh nom makes me feel sick
Can I add picky tea/bits to the list as well. I'd never heard of it until joining, but I hate it

specialsubject Wed 13-Dec-17 16:14:36

Vom . smile

BexleyRae Wed 13-Dec-17 16:14:42

Sorry, I've gone a bit formal with that

Strokethefurrywall Wed 13-Dec-17 16:20:09

I immediately hide anyone who writes hollibobs on facebook.

But nothing gives me the angry like picky tea. I'm glad I don't live in the UK because I'd have stabbed someone by now.

My little fam
Nom nom
Picky tea
Read and run
Little man

storynanny Wed 13-Dec-17 16:23:12

But hollibobs is the worst

storynanny Wed 13-Dec-17 16:24:09

Adding ster to end eg the hubster

blackdoggotmytongue Wed 13-Dec-17 16:27:35

Ah. Also ‘probs’ and ‘trubs’. This may just be my ex who had 4yo twin sisters (looooong story and mega age gap) but I mostly wanted to scream ‘I am an adult woman. Ffs talk to me with that in mind. I can cope with two syllable words. I have a fucking masters degree.’
What’s the trubs? Trouble. The word is trouble.
Nothing a shovel and a hole in the ground couldn’t fix.

SparklingSnowfall Wed 13-Dec-17 16:42:05

'The' wife
Wee man
Fam a lam
The munchkins

All utterly hideous grin

SparklingSnowfall Wed 13-Dec-17 16:43:07

Oh and so much 'picky tea' angry

HildaZelda Wed 13-Dec-17 17:00:42

Oh wifey is even worse than hubby.
Hollibobs is a definite no no as well and I also hate when people refer to their children as 'my little man' and 'my princess' or as it normally says on Facebook 'my ickle pwincess'.

GreatDuckCookery Wed 13-Dec-17 17:39:57

Yorkie puds 😖

ThatsMySantaHisBeardIsSoFluffy Wed 13-Dec-17 17:45:02

I'm not a fan of:

Choc / choccy

Or anything where the 'ie' / 'y' has been added in the abbreviation.

And lashings (of tea etc). Sets my teeth on edge!

OliviaStabler Wed 13-Dec-17 17:47:26

Most of these don't upset me but 'picky tea' is annoying. It is dinner! Tea is a drink.
