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


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.

When someone describes the way a meat is cooked as "melt in the mouth"

I had a form tutor who always used to say "have some eats" when referring to having lunch.

I know it all follows a theme... once your bed gets stuck in a train of thought and all that... I can't concentrate from cringing so much!!

As in, I'm having a cheeky glass of wine/cheeky takeaway.

Text speak (LOL etc)
Funbags (they're breasts, boobs, tits if you must but not funbags)
C*nt (can't bring myself to say it or write it)
All management speak - we can have a conversation, we don't need to 'touch base', I'm never going to voluntarily 'throw something at the wall and see if it sticks'
Moist, gusset, squelch, discharge
Guilty pleasure
Ducks (as a form of address)

Gotten was the older English form; it is in the AV and Shakespeare.

Normalcy appears to have been made popular by Warren G Harding, the most pig-ignorant twat ever elected President before Trump.

Normalcy (since when is this a word?)
Feature wall
Can I? ( when you mean MAY I?)
Boo (as in a loved one)
Soz (sorry)

Basically Americanisms and made up nonsense (these catergories are not mutually exclusive)

Oh, and like like like like like like. Arrrrgh

Just tapped the "I'm on" pin and saw my last post compressed as MuffCiggyFlaps!! That has tickled me grin

'Ignorant' as used by people who are so ignorant that they don't know it really means 'uninformed' or 'uneducated' and think it means 'stupid'.

'Entitled' used by people to mean 'this person is not entitled to this in my opinion but they act as though they are', 'arrogant' or 'presumptuous'.

'Refute' used instead of 'deny'. Refute means 'disprove'.

Coy words: rooster for cock, tidbit for titbit, panties for knickers.

Spread (instead of buffet)
Super (instead of very)

Free spirit = spoilt brat

Just adding this one as a placeholder so I can then read the thread at leisure and cringe to my heart's content.

Cringe is another one. It's 'cringy', folks.

Just came across one I remember I don't like - BANGS for fringe. Where does it come from?

Banter is so overused. Hope it moves on very soon.

Me saying my own name

Clitoris. Hate that word. Clit is even worse. I can't bring myself to say it, ever.

I agree that's it's an awful word ... but I've never encountered an alternative or euphemism that wasn't even more toe-curling.

Aeroflotgirl Tue 25-Jul-17 19:24:56

Oh yes: reaching out! moving forward.

nina2b Tue 25-Jul-17 19:22:17

Going forward

yy to spag bol. It's just ugly to say and hear.

missjoanie Tue 25-Jul-17 19:15:05

'Passed' as a euphemism for died. 'Passed away' I can just about stand but 'passed'? Ugh.

Aeroflotgirl Tue 25-Jul-17 19:11:18

Oh god thanks Ghosts that's the word. Little pickle is another one, me and little pickle are going to the farm today, aghgh. Nom noms is another one. Spag bol, and another one that my friend used to describe a curry: Ring stinger shock

NameChangeFamousFolk Tue 25-Jul-17 19:02:19

The hashtag thing is so irritating. "Homemade chicken curry" #spicy #foodie #feedingthefamily #realfood #homegrown #loveit #nocrapformykids #utterfuckingtwat

And so on. 99.9999999% of social media is people showing off about something fucking boring.
