I hate the abbreviation 'lil'. Eg 'I love my lil' girl'.
It gives me the rage. For me it is in the same box as 'hun', 'hubby' and 'bubs'.
It's creeping with alarming frequency onto my FB feed.

I am fully prepared to be told IABU, but I don't care grin

Elllicam Mon 29-Aug-16 12:16:53

I have someone on my fb who says luffs, crute, lil and beauts hmm

The only time I'd use 'lil' would be if I had a daughter called Lily. I don't think I'd be able to resist calling her 'lil Lil'.

What's 'crute'??

Soubriquet Mon 29-Aug-16 12:19:41

Wtf is crute? confused

I get the rage at people puttzing ect when it's etc.
Small and petty but irritating also

Ironically I can usually spell putting...

The other one that gets me - but I realise it may just be me - is the "doing X with 3/5" and constantly saying how many of their family are taking part in that way. It's only ever those with 3+ kids, and often comes across quite humblebrag.

I know that's not how it's intended in at least 3 of the people I know who do it, but at best it's all a bit twee, at worst its, well, fucking annoying. I don't go posting "having a coffee with 1/3" if I stop into Costa on my own, that'd be weird. So why the fuck would anyone care how many people are partaking in chain coffee out of a family of 5 or 6?

Arghhhh! Gawjuss too angry

Energumene Mon 29-Aug-16 12:27:37

It's. Autocorrect stole my apostrophe.

Oh, and the "X sleeps until whatever" brigade. Since when is it necessary to define time in terms of sleeps? Instead of, y'know, less nebulous concepts like days, weeks or months hmm

Sorry. Grumpy insomniac here.

A range I really like is called Gorjuss, I hate the name!! The products are too nice to deny myself because of the name though

Soubriquet Mon 29-Aug-16 12:35:11

I have that range!!

peppercold Mon 29-Aug-16 12:39:58

As in love my ikkle princess she's sooooo crute

Soubriquet Mon 29-Aug-16 12:40:48

Crute still does not make sense

Maybe it's supposed to be crazy cute smushed together

Yes to all of the above. Don't forget lippy and cuppa. And the variations:
hubby, and bubba.
Makes me want to poke their eye out.

Cellardoor23 Mon 29-Aug-16 12:51:58

'Bae' or however you spell it. I hate it. I also hate babe. Hun is also on my hate list.
