    The other day heard a grown man (probably late 40s- early 50s) say, "I have to go tinkle winkle" when he had to pee. He wasn't being funny, but completely serious. Grown people probably shouldn't refer to peeing as going "tinkle winkle".

    What are other phrases that irk you to hear grown people say?

    My vet baby talks to my cat... I get that people do it at home, but it was not very professional to say the least.

    Anything that could be construed as "baby talk".

    Also any and all "teenage girl talk", such as including " like" or "ya know" where they are not needed. Also speaking text message or social media acronyms out loud, such as "bff" or "unfriend".

    I don't even think kids should talk that way. What's wrong with just saying "pee"? Parents who baby talk to their kids just sound like idiots to me. :bag:

    The word "melty". That's a 4 year old little girl word.


    Yeah, that's pretty close to it.

    Also saying "binky" instead of pacifier, or "besty" instead of best friend, or "hundy" instead of hundred.

    Basically stop making up stupid words with an "ee" sound at the end.

    When my wife walks our dog she tell him to "go tinkle." It seems work rather well as the dog goes on command. It does not bother me at all.

    "That's something a grown person should not say."

    :meh:

    I'll use whatever vocabulary I wish, thanks. Short of it getting me thrown out of public establishments, my choice of words are mine and I honestly couldn't be paid enough to care if someone else is put off by my personal vocabulary. Is this actually a serious topic? :eyebrow:

    I think its alright. Baby talk to pets is always alright. I wouldn't mind if my vet did it. It might make me like them more. Although it depends...some people are terribly bad and obnoxious at it (that's right, there IS a skill to it...). I don't call it baby talk anyway, pet talk. It's its own thing.
