Words you hate.

For some reason, 'slacks' is really bothering me this morning.

You?

    "Irregardless".

    It's not even a word, damnit.

    retarded (for obvious reasons, but I still hear people say it all.the.time.)

    panties

    When people say "ezactly" instead of "exactly" or "axed" instead of "asked"
  • Options
    Oooo, steph, I wholeheartedly agree with 'axed'.

    Upmost....uh, it's uTmost.  And people seem to use it to show off, so it makes me giggle when they use it wrong.

    PS - steph, the HP books are AWESOME!  I can't thank you enough for them.  I'm almost done with CoS with Em.  I think she's enjoying it, even though she falls asleep, lol.

    I also dislike when people add an unnecessary S to the end of things.  "I went to Krogers the other day."  It's Kroger.  No s.

    As a teacher, my biggest pet peeve is kids (or adults for that matter) who use the term 'gay' to refer to something as being 'stupid' or 'uncool'. Every year I explain to them that there are ONLY two appropriate uses of the word and unless they are using it in one of those two contexts then they are making a highly prejudicial comment. It drives me INSANE when I hear adults use it. I once went on a date where the guy used it about 7 times in the first ten minutes. I lost all interest immediately.

    I hate the use of "gay" as well. You are using it in a derogatory way. Period.

  • Options
    I would say I hate the word 'retarded' too but then some one heinous person might come out of the woodwork to tell me I don't actually know what that word means.

    I HATE axed. wtf IS that? One of my staff says it all the time and I constantly correct here. I get that it is a dialect in some area, but this girl is from the CT area and I have no idea what makes her want to sound dumb.

    I also hate the word hubby.
  • Options
    "flesh" ... I think I'm the only woman on the planet that thinks that word is grosser ("More gross"?) than "moist".

    "agreeance" ... I'm pretty sure it's slang, if it's not, it sounds "slang-ish" to me. And if it is, way too many people that speak "correctly" use it way too often.

    I'm with you on this!

    A typical exchange when I was teaching:

    Kid:  I don't want to sit there, that chair is gay.
    Me:  Really?  I don't think a chair can have a sexual preference.
    Kid:  Huh?

    I don't see how anyone can argue that "retarded" doesn't have a negative connotation in this day and age. 50 years ago, perhaps not. But now, it is used as an insult.

    Yeah, and all the wifey stuff too. I did die laughing a few weeks ago when I found out Mike put me in his phone as wifenator. He is so weird.

    Not that this is a "word" per se, but I really want to smack pretty much any girl that uses the phrase "My man". It seriously makes me cringe whenver I hear it.

    If you're not on Jerry Springer or getting paternity test results from Maury, there is absolutely no reason for those words to ever be uttered.
