Words, Phrases and Other Stuff that Annoys Me

I can't stand shortening words and adding a vowel and then an "ie" to the end.  Here the word is "Baddie" rather than derogatory (or Derog or simply Bad).  In my vintage stereo hobby an example is "Yammie" rather than Yamaha. 

The word "baddie" needs to go, unless you're three and have awful credit.

Lady walks into the Starbucks with her son in one of those leash / harness things. I say.....oh how cute. Is he a rescue?

 

She yelled profanities at me.

I'll have to remember that...I occasionally see those sorts of nimrods when I venture out. 

 

After the profanity-laced tirade, I might have had to up the ante though, considering the stellar example being set for the kid :D

About four mornings a week, about this time, a windowless van drives down our street on the wrong side of the road, turns around in the cul-de-sac in front of our house going clockwise (wrong direction), and then drives away.

 

This entire street is only one block long.

 

Newspaper delivery?  I would think that would be daily, plus I don't see any papers in the driveways of the handful of homes I can see out the front window of our house.

On the way into a restaurant at lunch time the paternal unit of the family walking in front of us coughed up some lung butter and spit it out onto the parking lot.  Then his two kids saw the coffee place next to the restaurant and started shrieking "Starbies! Starbies!"

I've never heard it called Starbies. Sounds like some newly discovered VD or something.

Did you pick a new restaurant?

Our tour guide in the UK this summer kept calling it Saint Arbucks.

Okay I'm calling myself out on one annoyance that others have told me: Those who refer to their favorite sports teams in conversation as "We", as if I am on the team's payroll. I'm guilty of this as I refer to the Chicago Bears as "we" especially when I converse with the Green Bay Packers stockholder in the office.

That one is definitely on my list.

 

I've been known to ask strangers wearing various jerseys in public how long they've been playing for the [insert team here].

That sounds so 1917

I told someone yesterday, that I shared some of my money with Shell, so in exchange they shared some of their fuel for my car.

 

I have a feeling that's not what the hipster meant by sharing economy. The look on their face was one of confusion.

Next time you're at a "farmers market" take note of the stock that is sitting behind the produce vendors.

 

Mark my words, if you look at enough of them you will notice giant bags of onions from Costco.
