I have a few (some of them swear words, c**t, in particular).
FiL says "Jesus Wept" quite a lot, hate that too.

One particularly annoying one though, is from my Dad. "Coppish". It is a word that describes the bit in a man's underpants that would accommodate the penis. confused

I have a DP and DS, and when I hang their pants on the washing line, the stupid word is like a brainworm. I want it expunged - it is the most annoying thing in the whole world. I've never ever heard anyone else ever say it. Ever! And it drives me potty.

I'm with ginslinger. Moist is wrong along with any email that says 'warm regards'. Eww

Willy... ughh.
Also, warm regards? Who says that? It sounds way too close for an email.

A moist rim would be very unpleasant

Haha I came on here to say moist & gusset but lots have already beat me to it. Awful words. They make me shudder when I hear them!

Moist. Makes me shudder.

For some reason I have a full cringe klaxon sounding in my head when people use 'here' in forum posts which give information about them.

An example I recently saw being "What year did everyone leave this school? '94 here".

It is totally irrational and I can't put my finger on why I hate it, but it really does make me cringe.

Catarrh. A particular favourite of my Father's at any time but especially when he has a cough. I projectile vomit (internally!) every single time he says it. I'm feeling ill just typing this!
