You are here

words that you hate

everybody has a word that they dislike....what is yours?

Mine is supreme. supreme i don't know why but i hate it with a burning passion...haha

Oh and while we're on the subject of slang that's been done to death...I abominate and despise the phrase "like no other"!! I have a friend who uses it for the most mundane things and seems to end every sentence with it.

But Yabbit!  It's new and improved!  ;D

I also hate racial/sexual slurs of any kind. And the "F" word. And I agree with what someone said about the word "vegan" pronounced wrong. It is annoying. Or when someone says it as an insult. Like "Oh, you are one of those vegans" in a snotty voice.

I have a habbit of making up words. I got that from my mom. I try not to do that here, because only my mom and I know the meaning of our "made up" words LOL.

I hate the phrase "at the end of the day..." Like, "At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter...." Also - panties. And The v-word (I can't even type it, that's how much I hate it).

"chick"

vay-gun

vej-un

armadillo, pronounced with the Ls (we don't do it for tortilla, do we?)

"the human condition" (what IS the human condition? being a human?! it's also so anthro-centric, or at least it's always in anthro-centric conversation/discussion)

not a word, but when people don't use the terms transgendered or transsexual correctly, and don't care to correct themselves  :(

and my (least) favorite: b*tch. it somehow manages to be derogatory towards women and dogs at the same time, and used just to mean a woman who's angry/mean without cause. Why not call them... mean?

I also hate panties... makes me cringe all over!  I prefer underwear.  I also don't like the word moist for some reason.  It just sounds gross.

depending on the circle, a lot of people use transgender as an umbrella term-- transsexual (at least in my area of academia) has fallen out of favor due to the whole "recreating and maintaining binaries" issue. all the transsexuals i know refer to themselves as transgendered, to say the least.

dude i HATE panties!! it makes me think it should be lacy and skimpy. i do not wear panties, thank you very much. underwear is fine by me.

I think I hate that word because I can just picture my mom saying it...she put extra emphasizes on the "ties" part.  I can just hear her saying "Do you need to do laundry so you have clean panTIES?"  arrrgg!!!!

That's too funny! My husband and I joke all the time about tripping these little hellions on wheels! Oops, sorry, didn't see you there! ;D

LOL! When my sister and I roadtripped in May, we made a list of words we hate and those two were at the top of the list. Even worse if you put them together: moist panties. GROSS!

We made a rule that we both had to hate the word for it to make the list. Some others that we can't stand:

1. grungy
2. jeepers
3. flaccid
4. splatter
5. undulate
6. pus
7. blubber

With the exception of jeepers, which is just dumb, they all sound gross to me.

I like undulate.  It always makes me think of "10 Things I Hate About You."

I don't have words I don't like, it is just the way they are used.  I have grammar issues, big time.  I transcribe doctors all day and even they don't have exceptionally good grammar.

So...

You can't speak good English, but you can speak proper English.

You may think you seen him, but I am sure you saw him.

You can say you haven't ate today, and I'll tell you, you have not eaten today.

I know you haven't saw her in a while, but I haven't seen her in ages.

You are free to say "that is just how I done it" and I am sure I have done it better.

It was, they were...the sponge, needle and instrument counts was not correct, but perhaps they were.

You can do anything you please, but please ask of you may, not if you can.

Can I see that?  What...you need glasses to see that far?

Worse yet, in the midwest and south, when someone says "this shirt needs warshed"  I don't know how this word got an "R" in it but it drives me crazy!!

Oh, warshed!  And winders (windows.)  And don't forget that we're going to get pitchers (pictures) taken.  The midwest is fun.  I cringe inside every time I hear one of those.

Ahh the Midwest---warshed, woished, over-hauls, MAN-aise, may-naise! (Three separate vowel groups, one being a y, three syllables if I'm not mistaken...)
And the question I never, ever answer..."How's come?" If you want to know  WHY, for goodness' sake (not gooness), say so!!
RE: the F word...I was listening to some old Bill Cosby recordings from back in the 60's when he was doing nightclub sets, winging them...he had people on the floor with laughter for 30 mins at a time, and not one word of profanity. About the strongest thing he said was "for crying out loud". And maybe Judas Priest...wherever that came from, it was pre-the rock band. Maybe it was because the colour bar was still firmly in place (black man entertaining white audience)--or maybe he just knew how to be funny without "effing and blinding".

pretty often ill come upon a pittsburghian that adds in the r's and yinz.  i think the midwest begins in pittsburgh.  because just a couple hours east, we certainly dont talk like that!  its crazy the differences between the sides of the state.

I teach elementary school, and I absolutely HATE those shoes.  The kids "aren't allowed" to have their wheels in at school, but that doesn't really stop them.  It drives me crazy. 

I abhor the phrase "ain't got no," as in "I ain't got no pencil."  It drives me nuts.

We stole the "r"s from Boston.  That's why they "pahk their cahs".

Here I go:  I hate the word "pro-life".  "Pro-life"-rs all too often ONLY care about the life of the fetus, not the life of the woman, or the life of the child.  A true pro-lifer values an individual's rights.

THANK YOU. :) The term "choose life" enrages me. Choose? No one's choosing anything, that's the whole point.


PANTIES

I also have a thing about the word "panties" it makes me think of a little girl's underwear...
but instead of avoiding it I use it for everthing under the sun that I can, including calling my husband's underwear his "pannies" and parts of his uniform and his PT clothes that have those sewn in "panties" (like swimsuits)... well not my underwear, that's just underwear. But DH's underwear become "pannies"

Lastly, I will not confirm (or deny) that I have (or have not) tripped those damn rollerskating kids (only the really rude ones.)
