To be mildly irritated by the euphemism "None of your beeswax"?

Is "business" a taboo/swear word that needs to be substituted? It's so twee.
What words or phrases annoy you?
InspectorIkmen · 01/11/2018 10:36
So many. So so many.
First on my list is anyone who refers to themselves as 'Muggins here'.
PinkSparklyPussyCat · 01/11/2018 10:42
I much prefer either of those to 'give your head a wobble' and 'grinds my gears'!

I love the use of “beeswax”!
Hate hate hate “pass the cheese please Louise”, especially when my mother in law says it. Also dislike “furry snuff” instead of “fair enough”.
PrivateParkin · 01/11/2018 10:48
My dad says 'Fairy Snow' instead of fair enough, for some reason - I always thought it was a washing powder but I might have made that up. It doesn't annoy me though.
I hate the phrase "treat yourself/myself". Ugh.

It's something my husband alone says. When he sneezes at home he shouts out "Bless me, fuck you". Really winds me up! Come to think of it most things he says/does winds me up, but that's another thread!

We say merci buttercups sometimes instead of thank you. Don’t know why
Satsumaeater · 01/11/2018 13:32
My DadIL used to say merci buckets.
I used the expression "beeswax" yesterday ,wonder if I prompted the OP's post. Sorry :)
I dislike the hashtag #sorrynotsorry

'Me time' not opposed to the concept, just if it has to be stated.
AnneWiddecombesHandbag · 01/11/2018 23:39
I really really hate when people say they are squiffy. You’re not squiffy your fucking drunk. Deal with it!
TheFuckfaceWhisperer · 01/11/2018 23:39
Boils my piss... An American friend on Facebook actually asked me if people really do say it!
HarrietKettleWasHere · 01/11/2018 23:40
‘Pamper’ ‘pamper yourself’ ‘pamper day’
KaosReigns · 01/11/2018 23:43
It's meant to soften the phrase, mind your own business can be seen as quite harsh whereas mind your own beeswax gets the same point across but in a slightly softer more friendly way.
MyEyesAreNotDeceivingMe · 01/11/2018 23:44
Boils my piss
Wind your neck in
Crass - I loathe that word and I’m not sure why.
Ickle instead of little, even more so if said by an otherwise full functioning adult male
Windy pops, see above
Goodness, I could go on as these have come to me without trying.

I like the “none of your beeswax” expression because Sue Heck says it. Sue Heck is my spiritual sister.
ladydickisathingapparently · 01/11/2018 23:49
I like “ya beeswax? MOIND IT!” said a la Kath and Kim.
jjemimapuddleduck · 01/11/2018 23:52
Getting fluff in the post (seems to be related to slings or reusable nappies). Just say what you've bought FFS!
DayManChampionOfTheSun · 01/11/2018 23:53
I always thought none of your beeswax meant like 'not for your ears' (the wax?) instead of being a euphemism for business
POPholditdown · 01/11/2018 23:53
bless me, fuck you
Sneezing really aggravates me. I always sneeze 3 or 4 times in a go, several times a day so I’m frequently telling them to fuck off!
‘Going against the grain’ really annoys me.
Birdie69 · 01/11/2018 23:56
Boils my piss and nom nom. Who comes up with crappy sayings like these.
SpitefulMidLifeAnimal · 02/11/2018 01:08
When people post pictures of "my baby girl" when said female is 15 years old and in the middle of her GCSEs. Also, when I hear people referring to small children as "baby" as in "What cake do you want baby?". I always want the kid to pipe up "Donut please adult".
