vote-for8vote-against

All passive aggressive phrases that people use as if they somehow erase the crappiness out of their other words.
-Just Sayin...
-With all due respect
- winky face (this one makes me want to flick people in the eye)
And anything else along those lines. If you're going to be aggressive, then just do it so we can all move on. Don't try to soften/change it to give yourself an excuse to say crappy things.

vote-for10vote-against

I hate how the word 'literally' is worked into sentences either unnecessarily and/or incorrectly.

@axphw1: One of my grantees shows the same Powerpoint presentation for her funding request every year, with a slide that says "Disabled seniors are literally falling through the cracks" in the social services continuum of care. I laugh every time I see it. She's much better educated than I am and generally very well spoken, but this error has engraved itself on her annual presentation. The other presentation that makes me laugh is the job training program that, among other career options, gets clients certified as "Associates of Phlebotomy", and every time I hear her say "Associates of Lobotomy" I crack up.

"Fail" as a verb, I wouldn't mind at all if people said "failure" all the time... "Epic" as anything. "It's whatever," as in, "it doesn't matter" has been catching on and I don't like it.

Meanwhile, at this point I am fine with people and their rustled jimmies...for now.

vote-for2vote-against

Don't forget the famous,

"WHATEVER"

murked(sp?), noob, pwned... all of these make me want to choke the person saying them... luckily theyre all on the other side of voice chat in game and quickly get muted.

vote-for5vote-against

Wow, I didn't realize that so many little phrases annoy people. The only ones that annoy me are ones that are actually wrong, like misuse of "literally" and people saying they "could care less". I suppose that "Oh my god" makes me cringe a bit when it's used 10 times a minute but I'm surprisingly okay with "OMG" being used verbally.

@axphw1: I literally had to break up with someone because he was literally using it every few words. Literally

Cannot stand "could care less". Every time I hear that phrase I see my grandmother's jaw tighten. If you could care less then that means that you do care. If you could not care less then you care the least amount possible.

Any use of an abbreviation that came from email or other digital communication in spoken conversation. Especially when people pronounce "double-you tee eff" - I want to beat them over the head for wasting my air. "Ell - oh - ell" is a close second.

And the use of the word "facebook" as a verb. Makes me want to hit people in the face with a book.
