I have heard even BBC types say it, politicians even.
Every time I hear it I want to puncture my own eardrums. Ugly, crass, lazy, crude.
Also hate nouns as verbs - mothballed, torched etc.
Think I am too sensitive for this world.
Any other words/phrases make you see red?

"Hmmm they're so moreish"

Hate it.

Primadonnagirl Mon 24-Jun-13 19:39:39

Mince. In both senses of the word

I'm loving (grin) the thought of melodious vaginas!

Lovecat Mon 24-Jun-13 19:41:28

Panties and Belly.

Makes me go funny even typing them <bleeee!>

DarceyBissell Mon 24-Jun-13 19:42:43

Saying vagina when referring to labia and the other bits.

Urgh MOIST - agree JRY - like damp knickers
Minge is pretty bad too

Favourites include Buttock, Pillock & Flounce

All horrible.

Fanny is ace though and massively underused.

"sup" and "cuppa" ... really hate these words

Particularly hate it when my cousin says "I've supped my cuppa and now I'm going to ....". Gah! Cannot cope with supping cuppas. Can't. Won't. Makes me all tetchy and seriously cross. <know I need to get out more>

Luckily this mainly appears in the Lakeland catalogue (where all "roasts" are made thus via the use of a Remotska), so is fairly easy to avoid.

I had an Aunt Fanny and she was well-used.

But succulent and moist are such perfect words for what they describe.

And how could mucus be called anything else. I love them.

mrsjay Mon 24-Jun-13 19:48:30

Mucus and sputum are URG words

Madlizzy Mon 24-Jun-13 19:49:07

I was gobsmacked to hear that having a chip butty with my brew whilst planning the roasties and Yorkshires for our Sunday dinner was considered vulgar.

JRY44 Mon 24-Jun-13 19:50:17

I also hate it when people use their instead of there .... Oops that was me!!

missgrainger Mon 24-Jun-13 19:50:23

'Tasked with' = 'Asked to do' Enrages me every time - may lash out and lose my job if they carry on

FamiliesShareGerms Mon 24-Jun-13 19:50:56

Scurf is a new one to me that makes me wretch.

yy to moist, mucus etc. Not onomatopoeic as such, but evoke some kind of similar literal feeling

Hate panties, scab, faecal, cum

Gobsmacked - I'm fine with that smile

TheFallenMadonna Mon 24-Jun-13 19:51:47

Sputum too. It's a perfect.word!

My phone wants to autocorrect both mucus and sputum to doughnuts. Dough is another great word BTW...

travellingwilbury Mon 24-Jun-13 19:51:53

The worst is piece

But only when used by some knobber ( good word by the way ) when they are talking about a bloody shirt or a vase or some rubbish .

Optimist1 Mon 24-Jun-13 19:54:33

'Sparse', 'pus', 'phlegm' <shudder, shudder, shudder>

peeriebear Mon 24-Jun-13 19:58:49

Ugh to succulent. Sumptuous is dreadful too.

pollywollydoodle Mon 24-Jun-13 19:59:16

buttock pillock &flounce would be good names in that rowan atkinson sketch where he reads out the boys names in school...grin

KnittedWaffle Mon 24-Jun-13 20:01:45

Gusset and panties are both words that make me feel a bit queasy.

<contemplates therapy for issues, erm I mean problems grin >

littlehandcuffs Mon 24-Jun-13 20:02:10

M*nge or Seepage

ShatnersBassoon Mon 24-Jun-13 20:03:59

Eggy is worse than any other word.

pollywollydoodle Mon 24-Jun-13 20:06:39

carking it isn't pleasant
cunt/minge/scrote/hole/arse biscuit are crude but have their place
lady bits/outsourcing/bubba/hubster are just wrong and have no legitimate use imo

partial to merkin thoughsmile
