So are there words or phrases out there that, for some reason, get under your skin? If so, what are they?

*Just a quick note, don't come in here saying the same old forum cop-out of "just deal with it" or something to that effect (in fact, thats one of my phrases), if you need your daily fill of ignorant, racist, hate-filled, or derogatory speech towards other people, do somewhere else to find it, because there will be NONE here...sorry.

Anyway, my list includes:

  • "Deal with it." (yeah........)
  • I don't like when websites include a small snippet of a story and then use the phrase "After the jump" or something with the word "jump" in it.
  • "Swagger" (A message to us in the Hip-Hop community, we need to let this word die!)
  • "Noob" (Really, people still use this word?)
  • "Teh" (Ok, we get it, you can't spell, so stop using a keyboard.)
  • "Fanboy" (Let's just call these people what they are, people who don't actually like playing videgames, but actually like talking about them. Actually, that's pretty long, but you get my point.)
  • "RAP is CRAP" (We get it, you don't like Hip-Hop, but SHOCKING NEWS: Some people do!! Scary, I know! But seriously, I find it funny that noone learned from history when Rock music was "demonized" just because it was different, but rather keep repeating those mistakes.)
  • "Ghetto" (I don't have a problem with the world, but I want people to start using it in it's proper context and real word definition, not to describe ANYTHING that seems to be a little worn down or Hip-Hop related.)


I can't think of any more right now, but I'm sure I have more.

Any thoughts? Any words or phrases of your own?

If I never see 'epic win' or 'epic fail' again, it'll be too soon.

I don't think fanboy will go away anytime soon, especially since Webster's added it to their dictionary, plus I don't mind the word myself. Though I don't understand why Webster defines fanboy as also applying to girls, instead of having a separate word  like "fangirl."

I don't know if it counts, but people who don't type out words, example "u" instead of "you," "r" instead of "are". Once and a while isn't bad, but if every sentence you write is like that, it drives me crazy.

"Pretentious" and "Sell-Out". These words are thrown at almost every band in existence.

I don't mind fanboy however its connotations of an ill informed robot is annoying instead of saying, 'I am a fan boy of this'. I hate when people say 'innit', its not hard to at least put an 'S' in there and make it 'isnnit', or you could even say 'isn't it'.

"Pwned"

I absolutely hate it when people say it. It's much more tolerable if you're actually playing a game (though still irritating), but when someone says "pwned!" while they're watching sports......man, it just nudges me the wrong way.

"I could care less"

It's i COULDN'T care less, fucking hell, this seriously gets on my tit for some reason. If you could care less that would imply that you care, the complete opposite of what youre going for.

I don't know if this is a "Quote" or "phrase", but I also dislike when people do what you just did right there...  I get it, you are somehow "clever" because you thought what you posted would get a few chuckles from other people who don't get out of the house too much...  but let me just tell you, you are the reason this thread exists..., and also the reason I posted THIS...

I get tired of Ghetto and Fanboy as well.... I hate when people (usually white) use ghetto as a derogatory word, just like saying stuff is gay. It's so annoying. >.>

I also hate when people troll that they don't like rap/hip-hop, usually in topics that talk about favorite rap music or artists. I hate when they only post to say they hate it.

Teh and noob are going to be used for a while longer. No stopping it. =/  - And only people trying to be leet actually use teh.

I never had a problem with swagger, but it starting to be overused...

Just looking at all the responses in this thread makes my head want to explode. Every time I play Halo, oh, the horror! THE HORROR! I hate pretty much every phrase you hear people regularly say when playing games online. It's all so stupid. What have they done to our beautiful english language?

  • "That's so bomb!": This would be appropriate if you were describing this website but not when your describing and object or and event.
  • "Yo dog/dawg.": First off, I am not a canine and second, learn how to spell (when spelled "dawg").

The big one that's bothering me lately is "desperate."  I'm noticing this more and more lately.
Someone you don't like do something smart that will help them in some way?  Just call it "desperate."

Dumbass grammar mistakes all over the damn internet get on my nerves as well. 
your / you're
two / to / too
their / they're / there
etc.  You people who do this dumb shit should not even be allowed to own keyboards.

I see what you mean. People who say random things just because it makes them cool, when really it just makes them sound smug and snarky and not interesting to conversate with at all...

I really really hate people who use the words retard and spastic to mean someone who's acting a bit dumb. Mental Retardation and Cerebral Palsy are genuine mental disabilities, and using the terms to describe mentally healthy people is extremely offensive to people with these problems. It is just as offensive as the word nigger is to black people, but because it targets a smaller, less vocal minority it is socially acceptable, and it shouldn't be, its incredibly offensive.

That entire OP list just sounds pretty ridiculous.

Any "ghetto" phrase needs to be phased out and beaten with a stick until dead. Sick of that culture. Sick of their destruction of America.

So...are you agreeing with me? Or disagreeing with me? I'm confused?
And is the phrase(s) destroying America, or the people who misuse words like "ghetto"?  Just looking for elaboration...
