There is a phrase that annoys the crap out of me more than any other word or combination of words:

"I know, right?"

I don't know if you know. Why don't you tell me instead of asking me.

"You never know" is the phrase that really bothers me. It's always said after someone's retarded point has been proven as retarded.

It's their way of saying "I admit what I said was stupid and wrong, but I'm standing by it anyways"

I'm annoyed by people ending conversations/emails with "so". It makes the sentence seem unfinished, so...
 
2012-12-28 02:20:05 PM  
What annoys me even more is not an actual word but a way of speaking; that of ending every sentence with a slight increase in tone to make it sound like a question. This seems to be relegated mostly to young blonde females, and it makes them sound like idiots.

/That and the word "anyways". I curse the ancestors of anyone who thinks that's a proper word.

While I was going through my horrible, horrible, divorce, my sister helpfully decided to send me an email about what an awful person I was, and how I had let everyone down, and how she hoped I'd suffer forever. I corrected her. She answered me with, "Whatever, cryinoutloud." I blocked her email, and didn't speak to her again for 14 years.

I exchange an email with her once in a while now, but I haven't forgotten what kind of a person she is. Whatever.

2012-12-28 05:23:56 PM  
1) "and so on and so forth" after every farking sentence or statement.
2) "and stuff like that" after every farking sentence or statement

/not sure which order those should be in

The "whatever" of apologies; "my bad."
 
2012-12-28 06:11:04 PM  
My mom was so tired of hearing me say whatever as a teen, I got punished for it. Then, to make up for blowing things out of proportion, she bought me a teeny, tiny button that said whatever.

I graduated in 1986.

Now we're getting sick of it?
No. Just a new generation that's decided to biatch about those beneath them in age. That's not new.

Kids!
Whattsamattah with kids today?
Kids!
Who can understand anything they say?

Crazy.
Sloppy,
Lazy,
Loafers...

WTF Indeed: KiwDaWabbit: It is a lot more concise than saying "I don't value your opinion on this subject at all."

No it's not. "meh" is.

/meh


Not at all.  "Meh" means "I neither greatly like nor dislike this."   For example,

"Do you like classical music?"
"Meh." (Classical music  is ok, but I'm not a huge fan.)

And it's often used in a context of judging between several options, such as:

A: Where do you want to eat?
B: How about Pizza Hut?
A: Meh ("acceptable but not my first choice.")

Or at least that's what "meh" means here.  Maybe it means something different where you live.  I don't know.

deamonbutterfly: actually alway kinda bugged.... it sounds like an insult, when people use it to correct me.

"actually, (you retard) its blah blah blah......

i very rarely hear it tho.... odd. :)


"Actually" seems to be used to mean "what was previously stated was wrong," so when used to respond to something someone just said, it often boils down to "You're wrong."  Whether or not telling someone "you're wrong" is an insult or not, I'll leave to you to decide.
 
2012-12-28 06:25:58 PM  
When arguing with or attempting to correct someone, starting a sentence with any of the following:
- Actually...
- Sorry, but...
- Umm...

All three enrage me, but "umm" is the worst.

Also, typing "ya" or "yah" instead of "yeah."

Anne.Uumellmahaye: I hate when people say "just saying." Wtf does it even mean? You're "just saying" it as opposed to speaking things into existence? Or you're "just saying" words out loud randomly and don't mean what you're saying?

/also hate "sooooo" as in "it's soooooo cute," or, "I'm soooooo tired." Soooooooo what? Lol, just sayin! Idiots.


The original intent, which may get lost as people tend to use these expressions more and more until they become meaningless, was to disavow any possible implications of the statement.  So "I'm just saying X" is supposed to mean something like "I am only saying X, I am not saying anything more than X, and I am not responsible for any conclusions you may draw from X."

I think what happened is that people used "just saying" as a passive-aggressive way of implying things and then disavowing what they were implying.  So, for example:

A: Do you think these jeans will fit me?
B: I don't know, you ARE pretty big.
A: Are you saying I'm fat?!
B: No, I'm just saying that these jeans may not fit you.

condensed down to:

A: Do you think these jeans will fit me?
B: I don't know, you ARE pretty big,  jus' saying.

But now people pretty much just use it as a sentence tag along the lines of "no offense" without really thinking about it.

Corpus is simply loaded with people who come from somewhere else, and have a bone to pick, an axe to grind---something to prove.

They will stand there and chew your ear off, despite the fact that you don't give a shirt what they are talking about, if anything, usually nothing. Anything you say only eggs them on worse, so we are in the habit of saying "whatever" over and over, to any statement made.

It is our official verbal shrug.

durbnpoisn: My wife's favorite thing (that drives me nuts after a while) is, when she gets on a roll, but runs out of things to say in the list she's rattling off she ends with, "this, that, and the other thing."

It's sort of like "Yadda yadda yadda" with different words.


I had a friend in college who used "and all that other good stuff" frequently to mean the same thing.

He'd say, "I know she's smart and all that other good stuff, but I still don't like her," for example.

But "ya" and "yah" are not pronounced the same as "yeah."  It's a different vowel sound, so they should be spelled differently.  "Yah" is another way to express agreement, like "yeah," but they're two different words.

Also, the purpose of starting a sentence with "ummm" if you disagree with someone is to express the idea of reluctance, as in, "I hate to disagree with you, but..."  It's the same as "Sorry, but..."  Of course, you're free to hate it all the same, but it does serve a purpose.  It's not just meaningless noise.

My ex-girlfriend hated every time I said "whatever".

Well, I hated every time I got the 45-minute speech about how her life is so shiatty and every time she picks herself up, something else knocks her down again and that's why she can't walk her own ass to work. So yeah, whatever.

hlehmann: What annoys me even more is not an actual word but a way of speaking; that of ending every sentence with a slight increase in tone to make it sound like a question. This seems to be relegated mostly to young blonde females, and it makes them sound like idiots.

/That and the word "anyways". I curse the ancestors of anyone who thinks that's a proper word.


I worked in an office full of douche brogrammers who spoke with the "every sentence is a question" inflection. Drove me farking nuts. So many bizarre mannerisms spread through that office to every clone that they couldn't even notice what morons they sounded like.

Also, people who don't know the difference between "number" and "amount" or "less" and "fewer" infuriate me. This is grade-school vocabulary. Learn the language you farktards.

Makes me wish that more people had knowledge and access to an organization like ToastMasters. An organization that teaches public speaking to adults. I would've joined the one in my office park long ago, but the Nazis I work for only give me a 30 minute lunch. Meh, whatev. I totes don't need their help anyhoo.

CarnySaur: I hate it... when... for no apparent reason... people use ellipses... when they're typing...


It's even worse when they end one with about ten commas,,,,,,,,,,

Or the practice of putting a space before an exclamation point !

All I can think of is a person saying the sentence in a dull, monotonous voice, pausing for three seconds, then waving their arms around frantically.
 
2012-12-28 08:56:30 PM  
And pompous people using "said" as an adjective, or "whilst" for any reason. God, I guess I just hate the way most people talk.

Oh sweet farking God, I hate that so much. Went on a date with a girl who ended every sentance as a question. I wanted to dragon kick her right in the coont.
I started doing the same thing back to her, but she was oblivious. Paid for dinner, gave her 20 bucks and told her to call a taxi because if I had to listen to her any more, I was going to jam salad forks into my ears.
