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

I, too, cannot stand the word panties.  I always choke on it!  And when a guy says it?  Ew. 

Another word that drives me batty is "Sick", meaning cool.  Like "Dude, that's sick!"  I work at a highschool and hear students say that quite often.  What's even worse is when adults say it!  Come on. 

The word diarrhea makes me cringe.  Especially when I'm voice interpreting for a deaf student and have to say it.  I have no choice, but it's very distasteful, and hard not to laugh nervously after I say it.

You just made me think of that Pepto-Bismal commercial with the really big monsters, superheroes, and robots or whatever singing about their digestive ailments.  And the "dance" that they do where they POINT OUT where all of these discomforts are!  Ugh.  Nasty.

lol!!! it's so awkard but so funny at the same time. the slowskys from comcast are definitely my favorite commercials (totally off topic i know!!!) eww, this is another random thing but, is it just me or do soap operas totally suck!!??? the acting is friggin terrible. about 8 seconds ago these old people were "kissing and necking" and about to "get it on" and it was the fakest thing i've seen in my life. it was pretty disturbing too AND my little 6 year old sister was watching it!!!

I don't have many chances to watch tv.  Was it Passions, that you were watching?  I'm not too grossed out by older people "enjoying" each other.  I'll be that age one day, and I hope I stay interested in life, too.  But, bad acting, ugh.
And 6 year olds should probably not be watching soaps.  ;)

"Luis!  Help me!  Luis!"  Blech.  Your poor sister is going to be scarred for life.  And I totally know about the computer/ tv thing.  Did Sheridan ever get Marty back, by the way?

What about loud noise makers?
Specifically, I mean people who sneeze REALLY loudly and obnoxiously...or else have like a sharp caugh, make loud groaning when they are in pain, or even just breath heavily. It bothers me so much that I will actually alter my plans to avoid being around loud people...

I actually have a phobia about making noise. Its kinda weird, cause if I run up a set of like three stories of stairs (I also have an escalator phobia) I refuse to let myself breath fast . I hold my breath and suppress my breathing. I'm yeah its really uncomfortable! I don't like to wear noisy shoes. Caught in public. I'm cursed with frequent hiccups.  ??? Not only do they make noise but they feels like my esophagus is ripping each time. When I get hurt I'm quiet too. I once slammed my finger in the door of a car door. I quietly opened the door, removed my finger and looked at the blood rushing down. My friend (who slammed the finger) was like "do you need stitches?" I cant tell..."Does it hurt?" yes, quite substantially..."Why aren't you saying anything...?"

When did "bad" become good, "wicked" very good, and "evil" completely out of this world good?

Does anyone remember that 70's Pepto Bismol commercial where a handsome man is sitting in an easy chair, leans forward and says confidentially into the camera: "I'd like to talk to you about....diarohhea." Even at about age 6 I thought he had trouble saying it! We always laughed at the way he spit the word out. Not a very good actor if he was trying to come across as cosy and confidential friend who wants to sell you something you otherwise wouldn't buy.

Having been a fan of both BallyK and Monarch I'll add my thoughts.

The first couple of seasons of BallyK are WONDERFUL.  Once they offed Quigley and his doofuses, got rid of the younger priest, it when down hill.  Monarch is great, as long as Archie and the cook he married were on it.  Once they nixed that story line and brought in a sham laird, it went down hill.
(snippage)

With Ballyk, the actor who played Brian Quigley died right after the end of the 5th series (I've read some fan sites for the show).  I'm glad they didn't recast the part.  The actor who played Eamon, the sheep farmer also died (between the fourth and fifth series, I think.)  I hated losing Ambrose!  :'(  The 6th series isn't out on DVD until the latter part of this coming September.  We haven't finished watching series five yet.  I'm thinking we'll take a break from the tv shows and watch some good movies for a while then in a few weeks try another show.

Good thing you haven't had to be around me lately!  I've been making the most horrible noises because of the shock to my vocal cords from the thyroid surgery.  The thyroid rests up against them, normally.  And the swelling has made me feel like I have one of those Australian cane toads and not just a frog in my throat.  When I stay at my parent's house, my dad's sinus problems cause him to snort and bellow and sound like he's got the dry heaves.  It makes my skin crawl and I have to fight the urge to run out of the house!  I guess since that bugs me so much that my own noises seem all the more terrible.

TinTexas, did they set you up with a speech therapist and or give you any pointers or exercises?  It may be a bit early still, but if you can swing it, a speech therapist may help your vocal cords to recover quicker.  (I'm a classical singer, so I think about voices!)

Ugh, I hate when "bad" is used in place of "mistake" as in "Ooops, my bad". I hate that! Bad is not a noun!!

It finally came to me!!! I haven't read any of these so sorry if this has been posted, but, I hate when people pronounce "harrassment" as HAIR-ass- Ment, as in "sexual HAIR ass ment (stressing the HAIR). It should be "sexual harr ASS ment. It kills me!  Maybe I don't hate it but think its sort of funny. Not getting harrassed, but saying it that way. I'm tipsy.  :-X

That's regional, though. HAIR assment and AIRistocrat (nothing wristy)  are the correct pronunciations in British English.Neither does "surveillance" have a double L sound in it. They pronounce it as the French do (who invented the word): Sir Veyance. (Surveiller--to watch, from veiller pour; to watch over/protect).
What drives me batty is the new BBC radio pronunciation of "controversy" as conTROVersy and also, CONtribute. These are new and def not RP ("recieved pronunciation").

I said panties and I do hate that word but I thought of words I hate more.

N*gger, Fagg*t and P*ki.

I have never understood the need for racial/sexual slurs and don't like them at all!

Night night!

They work for people who need to shore up their own poor self-image by chopping other people's heads off so they can be tall. Same principle as the playground bully and the internet troll.

Oh. sorry! No offense to the Brits!  ;) I think the people I have heard say it this way were not aware of this R pronouncation either though.
Other weird ones I have heard  along this line: DOC umentary.....and EL ementary.........what's the story on those?

Hi T, I've been wondering how you've been doing since your surgery. Don't worry about the toads & frogs in your throat...it will pass. My husband thought the deep raspy voice was sexy  ;) Just be very careful with your voice. No singing, no yelling. My doctor told me that it is very easy to ruin your voice permanently by doing either....plus it hurts like hell

This thread came to mind today when I heard, for the first time in probably 35 yrs, that awful childhood couplet: "I see London, I see France, I see (so-and-so's) underpants." Did that make anyone else out there cringe every time they heard it?? My grade school had a dress code, which meant I grew up in skirts, but my mother would only ever say, "Dress-up day" to tell us quietly that our underpants were showing. And she didn't call them "pannies" or "undies" either!!
