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.

I'm not sure if this qualifies but a woman I work with calls everyone HONEY.

It makes my teeth itch😤

And I agree the meal. My MIL says it. 'Shall I come round after I've had my meal?' Just say dinner!!!

I don't know why that annoys me so much!

I mean, is that meant to be sexy? It sounds like kids speak but then you're watching something American and it's thrown in there.

Absolutely cannot stand to listen to the word 'c&nt'

My primary school headmaster used to called a packed lunch a 'packed meal'. Never forgot that. Still makes me cringe for some reason and it was 28 years ago.

Gusset (especially bad if combined with above)
Panties (I'm sensing a theme here!)
Issue (used in a management speak way)
ANY text speak abbreviation unless used in a sarcastic way
Uni as in 'I'm going Uni'

So many more - I'll have a think.

Belly. It makes my skin crawl.


Ginlinessisnexttogodliness Tue 18-Jul-17 13:45:05

Oh and inclusiveness / inclusivity

So fucking patronising and right on

ExpatinBah Tue 18-Jul-17 13:45:35

'Math' FFS - Its 'Maths'

MrMessy Tue 18-Jul-17 13:46:05

Scrumptious. So Mary Poppins

Isn't it more Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

TheNaze73 Tue 18-Jul-17 13:46:34

Cherish - Ghastly word/expression.

Hate it!! It's meant to be sexy but isn't.

EzioAuditore Tue 18-Jul-17 13:47:48

Agree with 'meal' - always makes me squirm. Also, 'tasty'.

GoldenHoops Tue 18-Jul-17 13:48:25

The c**t word. Hate that it seems normal to say it now.

Lush- especially if describing a baby

A load of sayings I hate too

BlackeyedSusan Tue 18-Jul-17 13:49:28

hubby, crimbo, holibobs, etc.

and my mother's pronuciations of words that are OK when someone else says them. She hurts my ears. (sensory issues)

Rockhopper81 Tue 18-Jul-17 13:49:45

Chillax - absolutely detest it! angry

sowhatusernameisnttaken Tue 18-Jul-17 13:50:38

Pickle- as in "oh are you being a little pickle?" no, she's being f'in naughty

Rockhopper81 Tue 18-Jul-17 13:50:51

'Belly' annoys me for an irrational reason?
