Words

Are there any words you just hate? What about love. Let’s share.

I’ll start with just one word in each category.

I love the word~clusterf–k~. I have no idea why and hardly ever say it. Sometimes while I’m alone I might but I just think it’s a cool word.

I hate~like. As in, you know, like……..

    The F word. I just think a person who routinely uses the F word has poor communication skills and has little respect for themselves much less any respect for anyone around them. I can’t think of the last time I was around anyone who used that word.

      I hate the F word around people it shouldn’t be said around. If it’s just Paul and I here, I’ve been known to drop a few bombs during a lively discussion but I’d never say it in front of anyone I didn’t know really well or any kids. I don’t even say hell or damn in front of the kids.

    “Cluster* ” is such a descriptive adjective, isn’t it? I try not to overuse it, although it seems, more and more situations call for it. I’ve also taken to swearing in British. “bugger”, “bloody”, and the like. They’re not swear words in American, so I feel like I can use them.

    What don’t I like? I’m more into phrases. Lately, it’s “just kidding”, because the person who uses it is usually being absolutely serious and figures it’ll get him/her out of apologizing for a boneheaded or insulting remark.

    Also, “whatever”, although I’m learning to use it. I hate being dismissed like I don’t matter, and “whatever” does just that.

    I also cannot handle vocabulary or grammar used incorrectly. Once or twice, fine, but honestly, if you don’t know something, and people call you on it, you’d think you’d go learn how to do it right!!

    I hate when people use words repetitively. For example, I was going to the “um” store and they were all out of “um” milk and “um”….. Now that I think makes people sound like they have poor communication skills. It can be any word, not just “um”.

    I HATE the phrase “I know, right?!” Or just sticking ‘right’ on the end of any sentence. Right?! Dude is always a funny word, but some people over use it. I also like cluster F***. Sometimes it describes a situation perfectly! Oh shoot! I had a bunch of them and now they are just gone! I started thinking about Dude and all kinds of things popped into my head!

    There are many words I dislike, but I’m sure I won’t remember them all right now.

    I hate hearing “Oh my God.” I think it’s disrespectful. Lately I have been hearing my kids say it, and they are not hearing it at home. I feel like busting into their school and demanding who thinks that’s appropriate language for little kids to hear.

    I hate “batshit” and anything combined with “batshit.” I’m sure it was funny once. F*-tarded and F*-tastic are also in this category.

    I hate “homophobe” because it is way overused to the point where all it really means is “not sufficiently liberal.” Several other “phobes” fall into this category as well.

    I dislike using the terms “black” and “white” to refer to people or their skin tones. So far I have never met anyone of either of those colors. It’s just a lazy way to avoid seeing people as individuals. Then you have people trying to categorize everyone who isn’t “white” as some convenient “label,” whether said label has any relevance to that person or not.

    I hate words ending in -licious (other than delicious). Ugh.

    That’s it for now. I’m sure there are hundreds more but I am supposed to be meeting a deadline . . . .

    Oh, and I was gonna say, as the mother of 5-year-olds, I hate potty words. Need I say more?

  7. Just a Mom says:

    I can’t think of a word I hate. I have always loved the word assinine. My mom used to say that word all the time and it always made me giggle.

    I love a French word ~ paraplui. It means umbrella. Just rolls off the tongue. Haven’t used since I was at school 20 years ago, but it has been tatood on the inside of my forehead since then. I generally hate business speak: looking forward, socialize, spinning wheels, efficiency gains, the list goes on!

    • Sue says:

      How do you pronounce paraplui? Is it par-a-ploo-ee? Does that even make sense?!

      • andylmoore says:

        Perfect! It’s a very poetic word, if there’s such a thing.
        I think we need to start a movement to replace the English word. It’s so much nicer. There’s plenty of examples of French words being used in English. In fact in the 16th century, French was the official language of England. History is on our side:
        – quiche
        – baguette
        – panache
        – rapport
        – gaffe
        – liaison
        – montage

    I love the word gianormous! It’s just fun to say!

  10. Nikki says:

    I’m not sure about words. There are phrases I can’t stand. I don’t like, “No shit, Sherlock.” Oh, I do not like, “duh.”

    I’m sure they’re more, I just can’t think of any right now. I’m not sure there are any words I really like.

  11. Joy says:

    I love cry-baby-itis. Boston Rob said it on a Survivor and I fell in love with that word. It’s so useful. Even when I just whisper it to myself about someone else who’s whining.

    I’m not fond of the word fart. The action or the word….not fond of.
    I hate the N word. I guess I don’t think about it much because it’s never said here.
    I can’t stand old lady or old man referring to your spouse.

    When I wrote this I had all kinds of words. I should have written them down because when you try to think of them, your head goes blank!!!

    I couldnt think of any word off the top of my head.When you Google this topic,which I just did ,one word that is high up there for most disliked if MOIST.I find that weird.On that same page I was reminded of a word(its on the liked list)that I like.My aunt uses it alot and Ive grown to like it.Discombobulated.It such a funny word.

  13. Nikki says:

    Steller!!! Love that word!

  14. Laura says:

    OOH!! OOH!! I thought of one!! “Chillax”. Is it a verb? Is it a noun? How did it even become a word in common usage?

    Many of the made-up words just drive me crazy, along with all the stupid made-up nicknames that are given to celebrities – Brangelina, Bennifer, J-Lo, A-Rod, etc. These people have names. Use them.

  15. Joy says:

    Using “va-ja-jay” should be punished by jail time.

  16. SKL says:

    I use “elixir” to refer to my fountain of youth (aka coffee) – especially since being warned that calling it “mah druuuuuug” and having that repeated by my kids could be misunerstood. Yesterday I referred to it as coffee and Miss A said, “you mean your elixir?” It sounded very cute coming from her, ha ha.

  17. mssc54 says:

    Well I want to add the “N” word. Growing up in MS I heard it alot. I just see no good reason for anyont to use it.
