Words, Phrases and Other Stuff that Annoys Me

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

 

We're pregnant.

 

No. One of you is, the other is not.

Same people that end up with the "Baby on Board" signs.

I thought those went out with the 80s, but I have been seeing them around a lot lately, too.

Same signs. New generation of d-bags.

 

 

No longer restricted to babies...now they have little stick people in the back window, one for each family member.

 

Now the family pets are included, too.

 

And, I don't think any of that is a good idea...

On your theme of ATM Machine and PIN Number...

 

Hot water heater. It is not a hot water heater. It is a water heater. The result is hot water. If the water going into the heater was already hot, you would not need the heater...

While we're coming up with zero solutions to life's most puzzling challenges, can someone tell me why it's fur when it's on the cat but hair when it's all over my shirt...?

I'm putting a single stick figure with bags of money on the back of my car. Pretentious and douchhebbaggy, yes, but still better than the sanctimommies with them splattered on the back of their gold Siennas.

"Supper" does the same for me. I think they eat that in Mudland.

My grandparents always had "supper" when I was growing up. Dinner was the noon meal and supper was the evening meal. I tend to use them interchangeably.

I have to admit, that's what I have always called it. Never heard it called anything other than that. :blush2: Edited by Second Chances

"Did you hear about Johnny?"

"No! What happened??"

"He put his hand through a plate glass window in the kitchen.... blood everywhere, 23 stitches. Ruined all Dottie's best dish towels."

"Oh, poor Dottie!"

 

It's only "plate glass" when someone has put a body part through it. Otherwise, it's just a glass door or plain old window.

At the new job they have this one they use: ROW

 

They use it in emails and spoken. When spoken they spell it out "R O W"

 

What does it mean?

 

Rest of World

 

I freaking want to slap people when they use it.

There is a difference in glass. Plate glass is the cheap glass commonly found in house windows. It breaks into big sharp pieces that will readily cut a body part that crashed through the glass. Tempered glass, a form of "safety glass", is used for doors where the whole door is glass, quality table tops, and the side and back windows of cars. It is harder to break and when it does, the whole pane bursts into little crumbs that don't cut people as readily.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

It's not a word, but the exclamation point has been cheapened by overuse all over the internet. I'm guilty of overusing it, too.

 

Epic

 

I don't think any other word has been overused or cheapened on the internet as much as epic. If you are using it to describe a video, I can assure you that it isn't epic.

Must have been from the UK?

 

My mom did the same.

 

Dinner was for a Sundays or holidays ; "Sunday dinner" , Christmas Dinner , Easter Dinner , etc. was always 1-2 pm

 

Supper was the evening meal.

True that. I've always used 3 !!! to ensure my point is coming across. More than 3 is excessive to me LOL

Nope, not from the UK. They were from Georgia. While I use them interchangeably, I still always use dinner for Sundays and holidays.

" strategic partners"

 

like you're partners for any other reason?

 

or is this " we're only partners for a limited strategic reason, otherwise we'd like to see each other in Hell" ?
