Back in 99-00 I can't count how many times I heard, "It's the 21st Century now, where are the flying cars?" I'm glad society has come to terms with the fact there are no flying cars.

"I digress" rubs me the wrong way too on the net; if you digress, hit backspace, and undigress.

When there is one thing that's really annoying me, it's the use of "how are you?" as a greeting. I mean, NOBODY is interested in hearing a story about illness or mental problems, they just want to hear that everything's fine, so why bother asking?

What annoys me most is the expression "You know what I'm sayin'?" in the middle of a sentence, ie.. "We went to the park, you know what I'm sayin', and we shot some hoops, you know what I'm sayin', and then my friend got fouled hard, you know what I'm sayin'"

I love to be a smart ass and say "No, I don't know what you're saying".

Moving up on that list is "What happened was...". Working for the Department of Labor and handling unemployment disputes, I get the hear all these stories of why people were fired and they all start off with "What happened was...". Like "What happened was, I went outside to urinate and accidently did it on a box of broccoli. Before anyone could eat it, I rinsed it off, so I shouldn't have gotten fired because whatever germs were washed away."

That's a true story too.




Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, "Why have you done this to me?" And the snake answered, "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

I'll call and raise with "people who punctuate their sentences with 'you know?'".

I thought of one that gets me going in the last couple days. It's (as a response to almost anything you say) "Yeah, huh?"

That's just annoying.

I don't really know if it qualifies, but people who swear incessently REALLY gets on my nerves. I'd worked once in a warehouse with people that used swear words AS conversation...I actually quit because of that.

Swearing serves its purpose..it's to accentuate a conversation and a point...not BE the conversation.

However, the one saying that really gets on my nerves is "AIGHT". It is so hard to say "ALRIGHT?"

Oh, and one last one: I hate the use of "EH?" in conversations. Yes, I'm Canadian, and yes, we here use it all the time, but I'm getting tired of it. Same with those who say "aboot" instead of about. I was guilty of it when the South Park movie was released...but that was a long time ago.

I hated that too and to mess around with some of my customers when I used to work at a video store.

Once a lady asked me, "How are you?" and replied, "I'm really bummed out because I just found out my best friend has syphilis." The look on her face was priceless. "Oh...I'm sorry."

She then walked in to the far corner of the store, my co-worker and I tried not to laugh too hard, and she never asked me that question again.

That's a great line to use when someone says something totally uninteresting but that also needs a response.

"Blah, blah, blah."

"Yeah, huh?"

Works like a charm.

I have to second the hatred of "I could care less" as well as the ones JTL pointed out.

So.

So is without a doubt the most cringe inducing misused, overused, word in the English Language.

"That shirt is SO 1987"

I can't believe nobody's said this one yet. When I hear someone say they want to "axe" me a question, or that they "axed someone else". Makes me want to take an axe to them.

The use of the word 'hella' will seriously make me consider never speaking to you again. First time will get you a funny look. Second time will warrant some kind of cutting remark. Continued usage makes me walk away. People who say 'hella' should die.

People who say decimate. Please if you don't know what the word means don't use it (JR I am looking at you).
Chillax is a new word that I first heard on Family Guy (I thought it was a joke) but I actually heard on the radio.
Hella, aight, and dog (not the K9 type) are some old ones that really bug me too.

Ditto on both of the above examples.

I just grind my teeth and imagine smacking that person in the head with a baseball bat whenever I have to hear somebody repeating "ya know" and "ya know what I'm say'n" over and over and over again after every 4 words.

"How are you doing today?" Answer: "Fine"

It drives me nuts to hear the word or phrase FINE! Be more descriptive people! Much better words to use in the limited vocabulary that the english language has built.

Well, I say that because as someone listed earlier, most people don't actually care how you are when they say "How are you doing?"

There's no happy medium. If I say nothing, then the few people who do actually care are waiting for a response. If I am truthful (especially if the day hasn't been good), it makes some people uncomfortable.

What I hate more than "How are you doing?" is "What's up?" With that, I don't even have a good generic response available.

I think Chillax started with a KitKat ad, it was the first time that I heard it.
