I hate it when strangers call me 'honey'. 
Whether it's a man or a woman, it comes off as too demeaning.

I'll go you one worse, PIP--"madam." A friend of mine who is of retirement age persists in calling me on the phone and saying, "Good afternoon, madam." I have told her several times that I Don't Like That, as where I grew up "madam" means the manager of a house of ill repute, but she thinks it's funny. Can't help disagreeing there but I was raised right, you don't insult your elders even when they're being stupid. ;)
For this very reason, I resist calling my friend Amanda who lives here in Spain and saluting her with, "Te recuerdo, Amanda" (I remember you, Amanda--title of a famous Victor Jara song...well famous if you know who he is, anyway). I always get the impulse to do that but I'm sure she wouldn't think it was funny after about the third time. Her husband's name is César, and I don't say "Ave, Cesar" either. I did once, and he looked at me like, "Oh, like I've never heard that one before!" Ouch. Open mouth, insert foot and chew vigorously!  ;D

Panties

I don't know why this bothers me so much, why do women's underwear have to have a diffrent name then men's underwear?  I don't wear "panties" I wear underwear.  It just seems like a sexist thing to me.  Like women are inferior and wear pansy panities when they are infact just underwear!  I can't stand that.

In the movie "The Queen" about how HRH handled Princess Diana's death, they call her ma'am to her face all the time so if it OK with her royal majesty, it's good enough for me!!!!  ;D

Ok,

Hate the words:
angina/vagina (the long IIII sound bothers me) Also when white people say Fajita like "Fah Jai Ta"

moist, panties, pussy, colon polyps, breeders

When people say "Pharol" instead of Pharoh

And when people say defiant or defiantly and expect it to be interchangable with definitely.

"Ma'am" is the proper form of adress for the queen or Princess of Wales. Though they often pronounce it like "mom." I suppose maybe she is the mother of her people??  ;)

In the 19th century servants adressed their mistress as "mum" (or milady if she was one.) Though few of them were maternal toward those who stood and waited upon them.

Sorry fellow southerners, but I just realized I cringe when I hear people refer to grandparents as "MEmaw" or "Papaw"  pronounced "pap-awe" or "MAMaw". EWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate the way "baby" is used sometimes, like in advertising.  Like this:

"Our new lotion pampers baby's skin."   That really bugs me, for some reason.  Maybe it's trying too hard to be cute.  The kid's name is NOT baby.  It should say "your baby" or "your child", not just "baby." 

Totally irritating!!!!!!!!!!!

Mine are more pronouciation problems:
I really can't stand when people say crayon like crown. It's not right!!!!
OR how about supposedly? If I hear one more person say "supposebly" I'm going to go insane.
Also, one of my friends uses the term "supper" instead of dinner, which bothers me....couldn't tell you why

Nobody wants to know this  :D but "supper" comes from "souper" in French, which in English became "to sup"....I guess people usually had broth for the final meal of the day...probably made of leftovers in the Middle Ages...bits and pieces that needed to be used up.

"Supper" is usually used by those who grew up in a rural area. We had breakfast, dinner and supper at home, though you had lunch at school. I suppose dinner at noon is a heartier meal in the country where manual labour is being replenished with a heavier dose of fuel.

In England "supper" is used to mean a light snack late at night, like if you've been out to a party or the theatre and get back late and have the munchies.

I'm an Aussie who visited my Grandmother in the US for the first time when I was 10 years old with my Australian grandmother, mother and sister.

Because there were 2 grandmas present my "american grandma" wanted my sister and I to call her "MAMaw". We thought it was strange because in Aus it's normally "grandma" or "nanna".

Anyway my Mum said she was raised in Missouri (though brought up in Michigan and living in Florida) and that is why she wanted us to call her MAMaw.

In the end we called her "grandma from America".

We thought it funny that she also wanted my Mum to call her "Ma" (though my mother divorced my father when I was born) but my Mum did because she liked and respected her and wanted her to me happy.

I guess that's my "word-hate" - why do Americans call there in-laws "Mum" and "Dad"??

Often the in-laws ask them to, it's a gesture saying, "I accept you as part of the family." Some older adults don't want their kids in law to call them by their first name because they aren't comfortable with it.

My Spanish MIL always had me call her Mama and use the familiar form of adress, but she didn't like me. She preferred her oldest son's catty wife who called her "Ms Isabel" and used the formal form. But whenever I did that she'd say "Don't say that, you make me feel old."
Go figure inlaws.

I'm American.  I don't know why people call in-laws mom or dad.  I call my father in law (whom I adore) by his first name.  I call my husband's mother "your mother" if I'm talking to my husband, or "the b!#ch" if I'm talking to anyone else.  I don't speak with her. 

And I can't stand memaw and papaw either.  Just typing them make me feel icky.
