Words/Phrases You Hate


#1

"Awesome" It's used everywhere all the time and I'm sick of it.

"Super ____" when someone uses super before an adjective to modify it. "It's super fun!" I hate that.

"Brings to the table" I hear this used a lot on TV and it's inane. I was watching some show about the F22 Raptor and the guy said "It's brings a lot to the table" and couldn't help but think of a fighter jet bringing casserole and mashed potatoes to a potluck dinner.

"Really?" said with a whiney voice to show that someone is annoyed by something...also "Seriously?" used the same way.

Bro, I gotta give you mad props for stepping up to the plate and starting this thread, 'cause I'm, like, old school. I hella think outside the box on the regular, twenty-four seven. Want me to think of phrases I don't like? Cmon, maaaan. I'm down like Charlie Brown.

And so forth.

Epidemic when it's used incorrectly. For example we have a nation wide epidemic of obesity. No we have a pandemic of people who don't know what epidemic means.


#5

I can tell right now: this thread is gonna be all old guys bitching about young guy slang.

Yolo, mofos.


#6

'Doing me' as in... 'From now on I'm doing me' or 'forget him, you go do you girl'

'hashtag'


#7

"Anyways"

When people are making a point and they say "period!" as if that actually ends the discussion (my mom does this and it's the worst)

"I know right?"


#8

"I'm gonna go hang out with my besties, cause I haven't seen them in like forever."


#9

Haha no doubt. Just say you want to take our guns away instead of beating around the bush.

Phrases I dislike:

"That's Racist"

"Nigga"

"Pimpin"

"Oreo/Uncle Tom"

Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Ughhhh. Sorry not a phrase or word. Just... ughh


#10

"bromance"


#11

Anytime I hear someone say "anywho" I want to stab them in the face.


#12

"Boo-yah!"

I don't mind the Marine Corps "Oo-rah!" or the Infantry "Hoo-ah!"

"Boo-yah!" however, just makes me want to kick people in the throat.

If I hear another movie trailer that begins with the quote, "In a World" one more time,
I'm gonna jump out a window...from the first floor...from an open window...Jackie Chan I'm not.

"Ask the question"

"Said" when something was already mentioned, just say "the"

"Like so"

"Talk shop"

"we closed down the bar" ....you lingered around till closing time cause you never pulled in a girl and left to bang

"Crash the party" you showed up uninvited cause you're a loser


#19

'horrific' - the overuse in the media is exactly that!


#20

"At the end of the day"

"It is what it is"
