    Obviously this isn't a particularly meaningful thread, but just felt the need to get this off my chest.

    I HAAAAAAAAAAAATE it when someone says "'nuff said!" I find it soooooooo condescending, annoying and just smacks of "I'm right and you're wrong so nah-nah nah-nah NAH nah!"

    Am I the only one? If so, it's fine. Again, just felt the need to have my little vent. :)

    Hmm, I haven't heard that one in a while.

    The new version of that is mic dropping. ;)

    "Just saying" is equally bad.

    One of my pet peeves is "If you remember right"...meaning if you remember it the way I said then you are right.

    I just loathe when I call somebody out for making a sexist/homophobic/racist/ableist/generally stupid comment and they tell me that if I can't take a joke or people being mean I should "get off the internet". :revenge: That's when I wish I could punch people through the screen.

    I see little wrong with "nuff said". I think it's just someone's way of being emphatic. I think "whatever" is definitely more condescending, but it's usually said when people are having a heated argument or dissing each other, at which times all kinds of condescending things are said. I have no problem whatsoever with "just saying"--one of my common phrases! Just saying... ;)

    LOL. The phrase used on FSU PI that I find the most condescending is "I find it interesting..." that you think that or said that or did that, etc.

    "Whatever" is my pet peeve.

    I am a little tired of "my bad."

    I don't mind "just sayin" or "nuff said" as long as it isn't repetitive.

    I also don't really like it when someone wants to express their disbelief and instead of saying something like "You are kidding me?" or "Really?" or "Seriously?" they use the phrase "shut up???" For a second I think they are telling me to shut up.

    I think a lot of the meaning of these phrases depends on the person they are coming from, and the context in which they are used.

    It does not really bother me, but I guess not many have said that to me.

    I am so sick of hearing about "baby bumps" in the media. I think it may have started when they were trying to guess whether or not every celeb's super slightly poochie tummy may be a baby bump and now it is used often.

    'Nuff said.

    I agree. That annoys me as well. I'm sure, of course, that I have plenty of annoying phrases I repeatedly say, but I have a co-worker who says, "You know what I mean?" after, what seems like, every single thing she says. She's a lovely woman, but it annoys the heck out of me.

    I was part of a review team that included a woman who would say "With all due respect...." and then proceed to rip somebody apart. After about two days of this, another team member pointed out to her that she was showing no respect to anybody; she was just being rude and insulting. Everybody on the team applauded.

    I can't stand when people use the word "hater" whenever they can. It seems like the it word nowadays. Annoys me so much! :wall: :rolleyes:

    I hate the word "bling". I am always surprised at how many home decor/wedding/lifestyle shows use that word now. When I was planning my wedding a couple years ago, I had a florist who, on a nearly daily basis, would ask if she could "bling out my flowers".

    I'm also not a fan of the phrase "I miss your face". I get what people mean when they say it, but it's still an odd thing to say.

    I know :mad:

    Other annoying expressions: when people refer to someone's skating as being like butter, especially when it's spelled "like buttah". And anyway, butter is sort of oily so I wouldn't apply it to skating to begin with.

    "The fact of the matter" is hideous. Also it usually prefaces something that is not actually a fact. But even if it does, just write "as a matter of fact", or "the fact is", or "the truth is", or even "purple". Anything but "the fact of the matter".

    Yes, I feel very strongly about this.

    When people abbreviate already short words unnecessarily. Like "w/" for "with" for example. :shuffle:

    Oh, I remembered another one: on trend. It's not so much on FSU, but I also read design and fashion blogs, and you see it all the time. WTF does it mean? Why can't they just say something is trendy?

    People who use the phrase "I'm not a racist, but" usually proceed to say something that is, in fact, racist.

    And I harbour an irrational(?) hatred towards the term "shabby chic". A lot of the home decor elements I like could probably be classified as "shabby chic", but I refuse to use those words to describe my preferences.

    I don't mind most of the things mentioned here, but I really don't like it when someone tells someone to "get a life". How much more insulting can you get than to imply that someone doesn't have a life?

    I hate the phrase "it's not personal, it's business." It's very personal to the person who got fired. And thank the dieties that the word "leverage" is no longer in fashion. Also, our COO regularly says "irregardless." Makes me cringe.

    I don't like "ice is slippery". Pretty sure it's slippery for everyone!

    I hate when any sort of critique or criticism is met with "you're just jealous".

    PS Allezfred I made sure to spell out "with" just for you :p

    I never really got that expression. Ice is hard and definitely can be slippery, but it isn't always that slippery. I always figured that people who mainly interact with ice as ice cubes made up/use that expression.

    I hate text speak. And I hate it when they say something is gonna "drop" when it will be new in theaters or a new song or something.
