Bogeyface Fri 25-Jan-13 14:41:37 be even more irritated by the fact that the person who was just saying it was my Health Visitor?!

I have never met her, managed to dodge that bullet for 2 years grin But on the phone she says this and REALLY annoys me!

I am probably BU but it really winds me up!

Hearing people say "should of" instead of "should have" - really makes my teeth itch !

I saw 'ikkle boi' on Facebook.

Ugh at my old work there was a director who said likkle. She thought it sounded cute and girly. It didn't, it sounded unprofessional.

I was sat instead if I was sitting. Unless someone picked you up and plonked you on a chair.

Chimley instead of chimney.

Samwidge instead of sandwich.

Bought instead of brought, or brought instead of bought.

I really really hate it when someone asks for a slither of cake. It's a SLIVER!

Fillum - its a bloody film

Smalls - nope, smalls are knickers not children

Well sick - nope you are either well or sick, not both, even if you mean you are good good

Specific for Pacific

It's endless, it really is.

Oh yes, a friend of mine says "Urban Dee cay", and refers to everyone (in a very loud voice) as "Schweedie". confused

Agree w ith almost everyone on this thread, yeah? (thats one of my pet hates,yeah?)My MiL says pantomine instead of pantomime and zorbet instead of sorbet. she just doesn't know it's the wrong word and I'm scared one day I'll scream the right ones at her!And it's surprising how often they come up in our conversations!

I would have to seriously maim anyone who ever said, 'Whatever' to me in a dismissive tone of voice.

And I had a friend who was always showing me things she'd bought from Dorothy Perkins and saying, 'I picked it up in Dotty Ps'. Which set my teeth on edge.

Same friend says, 'Oh I know, babes!' to me in a serious tone of voice and I loathe it.

Lil. I hate it. On FB my brother-in-law's idiot sister uses it all the time as in 'having coffee with my lil man'. I hate it. I want to batter her.

Ugh when I was on the postnatal ward DP pointed out that 2 of the other mums said bokkle. He then fucked off home and I had to spend the next 2 days getting more and more irrationally angry listening to it!

firstbabyhelp Sat 26-Jan-13 02:52:15

Also holibags
And typing nom nom nom - just so annoying, and whoop whoop - makes me irrationally irritated, you wouldn't say this in RL if you were excited!

Bogeyface Sat 26-Jan-13 02:22:33

Google tells me that it may mean Holiday. "Best Holibobs ever" according to Trip Advisor.


Bogeyface Sat 26-Jan-13 02:19:19

I knew the Brufen one, its the name that medical staff use.

But what the buggerybollocks is Holibobs?! I have no idea what that is and cant guess either!

alcon so I AINBU to think worse of her for saying it? Assuming that she isnt using Patois, which I know and is quite hard to understand if you dont know it.

I had a phone conversation once with someone I'd met online.

He said 'lickle' at one point and all I could think was how quickly I could get off the phone.

Then he said 'bickie' (couldn't shut him up) and I was clenching everything.

Then he said, "You make me chuckle" and I slammed the phone down.

Alconleigh Fri 25-Jan-13 22:13:16

Bottom line is anyone who comes out with likkle etc is v ignorant. So obv if a health visitor etc then probably ignorable. Harsh but not unreasonable. <flaming ahoy>

Brufen is a brand name for ibuprofen and the name it was first marketed under in this country (and is prescription only) - Ibuprofen is the generic name.

willowstar Fri 25-Jan-13 21:37:07

Brufin in the generic name for ibuprofen

MustTidyPlayroom Fri 25-Jan-13 21:32:33

Alc-O-wol for alcohol - make me reach for wine.

A continuity announcer has just informed me I am watching dramar on four. A continuity announcer FFS! It makes one year for the days of Auntie Beeb and gels in pearls.

PickledInAPearTree Fri 25-Jan-13 21:27:40

I knew hollibobs would rear its ugly head.

MrsBW Fri 25-Jan-13 21:26:46

Flisspaps Fri 25-Jan-13 21:26:08

Creamtea1 Fri 25-Jan-13 21:19:17
