I can't stand it when people say they are "weary" of something that they are suspicious of or skeptical about. "Weary" means tired. The correct word/phrase would be "wary of" or "leery of."

Also, I hate when people refer to their children, or children in general, as "little ones." It makes me think of a witch in a fairy tale or something. It just sounds "off" to me.

And don't say "we're pregnant." Only one of you is actually pregnant.



This makes me crazy. I really hate it. My DH is not residually fat, has stretch marks or any other bodily devastation due to the birth of my 3 kids.

I also hate it when women call other women "Mama". My own kids do not call me mama. Its bad enough I have 3 kids screeching "Mommy!" at me all day...I don't need a grown ass woman saying "heyyyyy mama!" No. Stop it.

"Draw" when you mean "drawer"

Kiddos

"Looking for something to do with the kiddos today"

"Come over and we can chat while the kiddos destroy my basement"

It's KIDS!!!!! Saying kiddos only adds a syllable and makes me want to cringe. I don't even like typing the word.

Totes- when I see this on social media I become irate and want to strangle the person. Like straight up strangle them.

Gorg- You can't take the 1.15 seconds it takes to type out the rest? It's 4 FREAKING LETTERS MORE for CHRIST'S SAKE!


All the feels- what is this? I mean really what is this? It doesn't even make grammatical sense if you think about it. It's just a disgrace. One person says something moronic and everyone has to follow and use it like sheep.





I say things like totes/cray/jelly ironically. It's my attempt at humoring my lack of cultural relevance. It's just become a joke and anyone who hears me say these things knows it.Chat Icon

"All the feels" Chat Icon Chat Icon All the feels is everything. Everything that makes me want to throw things.

ETA- and that's another thing.. wtf is everything?? Who comes up with this crap?

It's indicative of how our society is going down hill. Dumbing down.
It's all lead by realty TV and assholes like the Kardashians.
It's a shame

"I'm sorry, but..."

I see it on here all the time. I hear it all the time. It grinds my gears because if a person was TRULY sorry, they wouldn't phrase it in such a manner. It's just their way of being a tw@t and not feeling AS BAD about it.

Kind of like when someone says- No offense, but....

That is ALWAYS followed by something offensive.

I completely agree with an OP about being pregnant.

"We're pregnant."

NO!

We're expecting.
We're having a baby.

I am most certain that you are not pregnant if you are a man.

Since I'm so irrationally bothered by the"Best," signature on email....Chat Icon ...it got me thinking about other things that make me irate for no good reason.

Here are few:


Totes- when I see this on social media I become irate and want to strangle the person. Like straight up strangle them.

Gorg- You can't take the 1.15 seconds it takes to type out the rest? It's 4 FREAKING LETTERS MORE for CHRIST'S SAKE!





Not to mention you sound like an idiot when you talk like that. Omg I get so irate too when i see or hear that. It's not that hard to say or write the actual words!
