Get my back up before I even read the first paragraph.

My immediate reaction is "Yes, YABU".

Threads that don't explain what they are about in the title annoy me so.....

Yanbu. Completely irrational I know but I'm immediately irritated when I see that. Also, posters who start their reply with "hmmm..." like they've properly pondered you know?

Some days I'm easily irritated to be fair grin

So, I just can't stand it. As soon as I see it I think "YABU" and no matter how reasonable, rational and coherent the rest of the post is, my mind is made up and I've already written it off. I'm aware of how unfair this is and try to overcome my prejudice, but I can't.

Nothing's worse than "Discuss".

When talking I often start my sentences with "So". When I notice it it makes me hate myself and now my kids have started doing it, it makes me hate myself a bit more.

I know what you mean OP. It sounds a bit...over-rehearsed, as if the poster fancies themselves as a brilliant raconteur.

It's not just threads though. It seems to be the 'new' way of talking. Especially in TV and radio interviews.

"Mr Brown, tell us about the charity you run".

"So, we run a children's center blah blah blah..."

Or "OK it's over to Anna for the weather report"

"So, tomorrow will be overcast"

Once you notice it, you can't stop noticing it and it drives me mad grin

Can't stand the Facebook posts that begin, "So this just happened...." accompanied by a photograph, usually of a child being a child i.e. walking, talking, eating, sleeping etc.

I have a FB relative who is particularly guilty of this, so much so, she has over 1000 photos of her children uploaded. "So this just happened...." Grrrr angry

Threads that end with "Thoughts?" are even worse.

So, threads are all started by Friends fans. No?

Greenfingeredfun Thu 16-Feb-17 22:44:18

Just that really..

DH knows that I am going to kill him really badly next time he starts a sentence with "So...".
