"Hell to the no"



(the last two combined)


"My bad"

"Cray cray"

Surely nobody over the age of 15 should use these words in a serious context (even in a joking context if I'm totally honest)

I have this week heard them all used at work by professional, otherwise intelligent people. Please don't tell me it's me that wants to stuff the nearest bit of junk mail into their pie hold every time they speak like this.

Oh or have I just turned into a miserable old witch?

DulcetMoans Sat 25-Oct-14 20:02:52

CatKisser Sat 25-Oct-14 20:05:58

What the fuck's a cray cray?
Also may I add calling your boy/girlfriend "bae"
"Chilling wiv ma bae"

Fabulous that actually just made my teeth grind!!

Ooooh cray, cray. Did you not know? me either it's crazy.

I ask you this why thee actual fuck would you make the word you mean longer?! Whhhhyyyyyyyyyy?

There have been beanbags delivered to my office this week. I admit another WTF moment of mine but no I don't work in media. Also my glasses are awesome thank you very much, think Deirdre from Corrie meet Elton.

I said cray cray as a joke once. My old flat mate gave me the look of death - I never said it again.
Totes amazeballs is the worst.

AlbaGuBrath Sat 25-Oct-14 20:07:46

Yes CatKisser or boo, boo makes me feel nauseas

AlbaGuBrath Sat 25-Oct-14 20:08:17

nanny have you possibly been my flatmate before wink

DollyDreamboat Sat 25-Oct-14 20:09:32

I say all of those things, ironically and because I know how much it pisses my teenage dds off smile

nannynoss Sat 25-Oct-14 20:09:49

Perhaps! We had a friend who said it a lot. Well, he just said 'cray' on its own.

Totes aren't they just large bags or am I missing something

Fabulous46 Sat 25-Oct-14 20:10:42

I've never heard of any of the above except for "bae" and "totes". The worst one I've heard is "totes emosh" and. I had to ask what it meant.

Haggisfish Sat 25-Oct-14 20:10:43

Ha ha I say totes amazeballs in a slightly ironic way -makes me chuckle!

NickiFury Sat 25-Oct-14 20:10:58

I can't stand

"my bad"


AlbaGuBrath Sat 25-Oct-14 20:11:29

I have also just realised considering my OP is riddled with typos I really should probably keep my own pie hole shut grin

nannynoss Sat 25-Oct-14 20:11:33

Totes emosh!!!! Arghhhh.

Also, 'natch' for naturally.

Annietheacrobat Sat 25-Oct-14 20:11:34

I say chillax to wind up DP

Fabulous46 Sat 25-Oct-14 20:12:09

What does "my bad" mean?

AlbaGuBrath Sat 25-Oct-14 20:12:12

YY to totes emosh!

stupidlybroody Sat 25-Oct-14 20:12:25

Oh my God I used to volunteer for a charity and one of the women, in her early 30s, used almost all of those sayings.

'totes amazeballs' was her favourite though.

This was one of the many reasons I couldn't stand her.

AlbaGuBrath Sat 25-Oct-14 20:12:52

"You forgot to put the rubbish out"

"Oops my bad"

nannynoss Sat 25-Oct-14 20:12:56
