Things your DP says that drives you mad

We can't be the only couple that argue over little things that are said but they drive you bonkers.
Last night my DP told me to 'chill out' which drives me insane. I am chilled!! I just give a damn about things.
Also he has a habit of asking when I'm 'due on' if I'm being a bit moody.
He's generally pretty awesome so these are just silly things that drive me bonkers. Do you have any things like this to share?

"Unpatient" instead of impatient... I swear he didn't believe me when I told him he was saying it wrong!
In written form - he always uses "hear" instead of "here", which confuses me no matter how many times he does it. He's terrible at reading too so I suspect he is dyslexic but he's of an age where it wasn't considered to be a real "thing" when he was at school, so I've never been brave enough to mention it to him!
I try and kindly point him on the right path when he regularly gets something wrong but it doesn't go down well!

The word quagmire. He uses it ridiculously often and it makes me die a little inside each time, for no real reason other than a blind hatred for the word.
I also hate it when he declares "playing devils advocate" because he's just saying shit to rile up the situation.

Text speak , mine uses 2nyte instead of tonight , if drives me mad and he does it on purpose 😂
Hands in pants to ‘readjust’
Putting plates on top of the dishwasher instead of in it !
But I love him really 😆 and am sure I do things to annoy him too (turn of all the Alexa connected things by their switches mwah haha!)

See you back at the ranch. It’s his only folksy little phrase and it doesn’t suit him. Was very enraged to hear him still deploying recently after he revealed that he had no plans for the future of the ranch as a partnership and wanted his own fucking ranch and a new cowgirl.

'dumb' - he uses it ALL THE FUCKING TIME. 'You're being a bit dumb', 'that was dumb of you' 'I was being dumb'. I want to twat him. I wouldn't mind if he said silly, stupid, oversensitive, misunderstanding, but 'dumb' gives me the screeching rage. Inside my head. I haven't found a way to tell him I cannot stand the word yet.

Mine says "eh?" In place of "umm" when he's thinking of an answer, to every single question. So I think he hasn't heard me and I repeat myself unnecessarily!
Says names of the days like, Mondee, Tuesdee etc. Makes him sound ancient and I honestly want to throttle him when he does it!

Let it, let it, let it, let it....... Let it, let it, LET IT!
He means "don't worry about it, I'll do it" but instead barks at me like a fucking army officer. He's ex DP so I REALLY hate having to put up with his shit. (Have kids together so can't fuck him off completely)

Mine insists on using the proper term for everything even if it's not common usage. Like the little moving logos you get at the beginning of a film, he'll say 'ooh an ident' or instead of picking up a prescription he'll say 'script' for the piece of paper (he's not a medic). Quite unfairly it drives me mad.
