Clitty. Not a fucking chance, pal.
And hubby. FFS.

Henrietta, that reminds me of

jelus hatah - definitely not for the over 16

oh and

Hun - not at any age, ever

Well jel
Bad/sick for good
'Rock chick' makes me heave

I hate when people say 'Rock/ed up'. It just seems arrogant.

More better (or any other idiotic use of doubling up)

I should say in response to "how are you today"

The response should be

"Very we'll, thank you."

"Fine thanks"

"Feeling like shit"

But not "good". That's for teenagers.

Oops, preggers. Extra 'g' for emphasis!

'Can I get......' - with that upturned tone at the end.

An adult woman asked me what I was getting 'bubs' for Christmas yesterday. She must have been wondering if I was having a stroke as the way my eyes rolled in the back of my head and my temple was pumping it must have looked alarming smile

I have a friend who refers to her own bowel movements as 'whoopsies'.

Bubs or bubba (worse) deserves an eye poke.

Never knew of the antipathy against horrid! Might be cultural.

Completely agree about hun, hubby, etc.

What on earth do you people use if not 'poo'?! It's a bloody great word.

Boob/ booby are particular pet hates of mine, and I'm afraid they crop up on MN regularly: "she wakes in the night and just wants booby" etc .... Boak!

janey68 Fri 16-Nov-12 07:11:00

Oh and bubs/ bubba ... Shudder. You're having a BABY

LittlePebble Fri 16-Nov-12 07:13:29

Bub and bubba are the worst. Since having DS I can't look anyone in the eye if they refer to him as Bubs. Eurgh! angry

mummytime Fri 16-Nov-12 07:13:46

I have to plead for the sarcastic use of teenager slang to teenagers. Its just too much fun watching them cringe eg.
"Thats well Amazeballs innit!"

My kids have banned me from saying 'minging' so I say it to them as often as possible , as in "Ewwww, minging, I can see your underpants!" grin
