I know it's been done to death but I need to get this out

Scrumptious.

Fuck that word. Just fuck it.

It's a stupid, self indulgent sort of word.

"Oh isn't he SCRUMPTIOUS!" angry

It's such a childish word somehow. So Mary Poppins.

Also

Meal

Prudish
It's a vile little word that's levelled at women as soon as we have even the remotest boundaries about our bodies.

MrsOverTheRoad Tue 18-Jul-17 13:52:20

Yes to Sanpro!

WHY? Just say "tampon" or "Sanitary towel" ffs!

Tummy especially when it's adult to adult.
Peckish, you're hungry or you're not. Peckish makes you sound like a greedy fucker.

"Amazing".
As in cookery programmes...
" mmmm that's amazing "

Lush.
Choccy.
Posh.
Toff.
Anything in broad accent hurts my ears.

Moist (gets to a few of us I see!)
Mucus
Peeps (as in short for people)

Gob

Imstyledilemma Tue 18-Jul-17 14:06:52

Cluster

Horrible word and a cluster of anything makes me think of horrible things.
cluster of holes
Cluster** shock
Cluster of crime

I especially hate the term cluster feeding for some reason.

Moist 🤢

MrsHathaway Tue 18-Jul-17 14:09:22

Toppings. As in "jacket potatoes and various toppings". HATE.

deloresclaiborne Tue 18-Jul-17 14:10:23

phlem
just typing it makes me want to gag

MrsHathaway Tue 18-Jul-17 14:11:26

Yes, "meal" is usually awful.

Also "property" when what you mean is "home", "house" or "flat". "We bought our property in 2003" or "they've got a little property in Alicante".

AdaColeman Tue 18-Jul-17 14:11:53

Puter & pooter

Nom nom

Panties

Belly

Crimbo

It's a good job that I'm so easy going really! grin

Northernpowerhouse Tue 18-Jul-17 14:13:31

Another vote for panties. It's knickers or pants fgs!

Spikeyball Tue 18-Jul-17 14:13:34

Slacks
Proud especially when followed by mummy

Gotanewusernamenow Tue 18-Jul-17 14:14:26

When you ask how someone is and they say " I'm good thanks "

Also when someone says "I'll have a coffee". Noooo..its a cup of coffee.

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Tue 18-Jul-17 14:19:00

Any deliberate bastardisation of the word 'honey'. DH used to write 'hunni' in text messages and I can't even begin to describe the irrational rage I felt!

Empower.
Nom/noms.
Tasty.
Yummy.
Titties (fucking VILE that one).
Holibobs/holibags.

HerBigChance Tue 18-Jul-17 14:20:23

Tummy especially when it's adult to adult.

Urgh, yes. Completely infantilising.

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Tue 18-Jul-17 14:21:05

Oh, and 'nakey' for 'naked'. Honestly makes me want to stab the person saying it.

KoolKoala07 Tue 18-Jul-17 14:23:01

Supper.

MartinaMartini Tue 18-Jul-17 14:24:15

Hubby - I cringe just thinking about it! grin
