Words you don't like

Nick and me were just talking.  I saw on fb someone said they were "Chillaxin"...That word bugs the crap out of me.I also don't like the word "nipple"  I don't say it, and every Thanksgiving my grandma is sure to say she is thankful for hers, just because i hate that word.Nick said he doesn't like the word "Diva".So what word just bugs the dickens out of you?

    Your grandma seriously says 'nipple' at Thanksgiving?  Can I share her with you?

    Snarl. My mom used to say "snarl" in relation to my hair when I was a kid, so I hate it. I prefer tangle.

    I don't like words that when you say them a few times, they don't even sound like real words anymore. Of course, right now I can't think of any off the top of my head. I have a friend that detests the word "moist" - it cracks me up.

    "bangs" in relation to hair. It's a fringe.

    Wow, a lot of people don't like the word panties. In light of this, I think we should bring back the term "knickers."

    I prefer to call them what I wear...Grannies.I have a friend who hates the word "ointment".

    Anything that is an unnecessary abbreviation. Moist.I don't like the phrase "I'll touch base with_____"And I don't like the phrase "We are addressing the ______ piece of this, if you'll attend to the other piece."I don't like the word piece unless it is describing cake or getting some in regards to college lingo.

    Irregardless.  THIS ISN'T A WORD.  The correct term is 'regardless'.   Please.

    Wow, a lot of people don't like the word panties. In light of this, I think we should bring back the term "knickers." I vote for "foundations". It's so much more giggle-worthy.

    I guess this is more of a phrase but I can not tolerate when people say they got their hair "did."   omgstfu.

    If we're doing phrases too, I hate that people in my area (NY/NJ) say "Since I'm 5 years old" as in "I've been able to tie my shoes since I'm 5 years old" Really, are you still 5? Because that's what you're saying to me.

    I hate mispronunciations like "punkin" and "libary" And "fustrated". There's an "r" in there, pronounce it.

    YEs, Sucrets, that's definitely ok. Shelly, my brother and I tease each other about ending sentences in at all the time. Like, when one of us does it, we'll repeat it and say the AT part really loud and obnoxiously to make the other feel stupid.

    Fish, I hear it all the time, I should be used to it, but I still feel compelled to correct them.

    sucrets, my one BM does it all the time - she was born in NY, family is from Brooklyn and she grew up in NJ. I don't know where she gets it from, but I've heard it from other people too. Drives me mad. Also, the use of "draw" for "drawer" Ugh.

    I have a friend who constantly says that instead of "appetizers."   "Do you want to get some appys?" Oh my god, you're not five, it doesn't need a cutsey shortened name.  I googled it once to see if it was just her and apparently its somewhat common?  It makes me want to bang my head into a wall.
