I hate the word....

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Surprise Panda!, Sep 14, 2008.


  1. goofy


    what word do you hate?
     
  2. P.M.S. I know its less of a word and more of an acronym but still I don't like to hear it.
     
  3. Well mine isn't really the word itself, it's how much people use it and how they use it. "Like"

    Used in this context:

    "So like, I went to the mall blahblahblah"

    Any number of business buzzwords (utilize, synergy, upsell, granularity, etc)

    But I suppose if context counts, it's misuse of the word literally.

    and, I hate it when someone misuses the word über. For the love of god, if you must use it, use it properly. Do not say "oh, that so totally über!" that's like saying: "oh, that was so totally very!" it's a MODIFIER! USE IT CORRECTLY!

    or I will ship you to the grammar concentration camps..

    I'm sick of the word "literally" being used incorrectly. Musicians and sportscasters are the worst offenders:

    Musician - "I literally beat the crap out of my bass."
    Really? What did you do with all the crap? Is bass crap difficult to clean? That must have been very embarassing for the bass.

    Sportscaster - "His feet were literally golden chariots of fire!"
    Um... no they weren't.

    It's also German and umlauted.

    It's also German and umlauted. Pronounced more like "eeber" than oober" ... somewhere in between.

    it's not a word, but a phrase: Trippin' Sac.

    I will die a happy man if I never hear "I know I was trippin' sac but I swear that was the best show ever last night," again.

    A good friend of mine lived next to a bunch of full-blown, Magic-Omelette-for-breakfast type hippies for a while. Nice guys, but every conversation was about "trippin' sac."

    I also hate the word "vagina". The word itself makes me uncomfortable. I don't like hearing it and find it difficult to say, yet without batting an eye I will refer to my [expletive] or my rod or my... johnson.

    I like vagina. I'm not a fan of Hemorrhoid however.
