Following on from the fabulous type of threads you really hate on here, I thought I would start a similar thread for phrases used on MN that really get your goat.
I'll start off with 'in this house', usually used in conjunction with some smug statement to make the OP feel inadequate/bad.
For example 'Oh, we love books in this house!' or 'there's no faddy eaters allowed in this house' or 'we all have to respect each other in this house'.
Over to you ....

Posts that end with "discuss."

I hate it when you've started a thread and are perhaps mildly perturbed, confused, maybe a bit miffed/cross.

Them everyone assumes you're really angry "is it REALLY worth winding yourself up like this?"

Erm confused grin

"Are you on glue?"
It wasn't funny the first time and it's funny now.

'I just spat my coffee over the keyboard laughing at that'

'I laughed so hard I just woke the baby!'

I just don't believe them!

" Boils my piss" . I swear like a trooper but really really hate that.

'I'm so glad that's all you have to worry about'.

It really annoys me, even when I was living in a women's refuge with nothing at all to my name I would worry about silly things like what to have for tea, thank God I didn't post asking for advice on trivial matters.

The liberal handing out of grips annoys me too.

<passes op a grip>

I have a spare grip around here somewhere you need it more than I do.

I've even seen photos of grips posted.

angryangryangry it irrationally annoys me.

Are you on glue is from Legally Blonde. It's shit.

Tinkly laughing, head tilting and my all time worst...he's telling you who he is OP. Listen.

I also hate people referring to their nanny just as nanny. As in, 'we went in the shop and nanny refused to pay for my dinner'. It's THE nanny!

Ditto with "baby".

"Something brigade."
Whichever side it is, even mine.

"No is a complete sentence"

No! It isnt. That would be fucking rude.

cherrycrumblecustard Sat 07-Jan-17 14:29:19

Yeah Fish I hate it when someone posts a stupid meme to show how hilarious they are.

Lweji Sat 07-Jan-17 14:29:52


And yet... wink

EverySongbirdSays Sat 07-Jan-17 14:30:25

Ridiculous suggestions as to how those who are struggling can make more money.

I saw one the other day that made me so angry I left the thread - because it so easy to get that specific job with those specific parameters overnight hmm

"Fuck off to the far side of fuck and then fuck off some more" and any variation of it. Just fuck off is fine.

YoHoHoandabottleofTequila Sat 07-Jan-17 14:31:13

Tinkly little laugh. hmm

Fuzzypeggy Sat 07-Jan-17 14:31:15

WHen the post starts "just that really" but then the poster gives loads more info. So NOT just that really.
Also "wow, just wow" and "no, just no"

pipsqueak25 Sat 07-Jan-17 14:31:21

'grammar police', 'boils my piss', excuses made for a shit of a dp /dh 'but i love him' , 'my dc' [conceived with one parent only], 'we are pregnant' [no, only the woman is] god, too many to mention, and yes, i am being a grumpy moo today grin

Agree about "Are you on glue", it was never funny.
"Get a grip" irritates me.
"I luffs" makes me want to throw my IPad against the wall.
"Pretty please" is something I have never heard in real life, which is fortunate as it makes me feel stabby murderous.

I'm sure I can come up with a list as long as a loo roll, because I've become very irritable <glowers>

Lweji Sat 07-Jan-17 14:32:52

he's telling you who he is OP. Listen.

You may not like the sentence, but it's true. grin

humblesims Sat 07-Jan-17 14:33:03

Boils my piss is my most hated.

SealSong Sat 07-Jan-17 14:33:56

HTH at the end of a post, it's smug and passive aggressive.

Passes OP a Grip/here is a Grip.......just sod off with your stupid grips

Irritating memes and gifs. This is not facebook.

SealSong Sat 07-Jan-17 14:35:25

"Wait, what?"

So overused.

SausageSoda Sat 07-Jan-17 14:35:34

The word 'niace'

This emoji - hmm. Feck off with your sneery face.
