words that you hate

everybody has a word that they dislike....what is yours?

Mine is supreme. supreme i don't know why but i hate it with a burning passion...haha

gutsy.

my witty younger bro' (gotta love brothers and their confusing senses of humour!) heard the word used on an aussie sitcom in was watching, about 10 years ago, and for the next few weeks he made a point to use it in what seemed like every sentance he constructed in my presence (we lived together, so that was a LOT) and he did it loudly, in an awfully poor faux australian accent, right in my earhole. arggggghhhh.

i have no idea why he did this, or where he got the willpower to carry it on for so long. he still does it randomly now. weirdo.

whenever i hear that word i flinch.

i'm not hugely fond of 'taco' either recently. mainly because i can't help but say it with my english accent, and how i pronounce it (like a few other words) seems to make a few local canadians chuckle.  i like the word, but i hate how it sounds weird when i say it, compared to everyone around me. apparently i say it posh, or something...it sounds like 'tack-o' when i say it, and i should say it more like 'taaar-co'.. (?) which i feel makes me sound like a stoned surfer dude crossed with an upper class english snob.

oooh, and i can't help but want to cringe when people say 'acsk' instead of 'ask,' too. but i try not to, cos i'm not sure if its just bad pronounciation, or the result of a speech impediment.

... i have a few others too, but i'll save em. don't wanna look obsessive, lol.  ;)

As in "I seen a bird." Drives me crazy! Another one is "ain't" which a lot of my Grade 1 students say (obviously they hear it at home).

I hate "ain't" too.  I live in the midwest, and I think 97% of people around here say that.  I also don't like "take".  As in:  I'm going to take and refridgerate this pie."  Drives me nuts!  Ooooh, and "pop".  Sandra Lee, on food network.  "I'm going to pop this in the oven."  "I want you to pop this right in the pan."  Shut up already.  Can't the woman just "place" or "put" something?!

ha ha, pop. being from seattle, we call sodas "pop." however, when i moved out here people don't say pop-- it is soda (apparently this varies by where in NY you are). i once got into a fight with someone because i was calling it pop. really, does it matter?

i hate the word "homosexual." it is so medical and sterile. however, i'm okay with heterosexual... perhaps because it doesn't have the same history.  and "homosexual lifestyle". good grief.

 A fight over a sweetened, carbonated beverage.   ;D  Awesome.  "Homosexual" is sterile sounding.  And "homosexual lifestyle" is bulls^@t.  A person is just living.  Geesh.

Let's just pop these sweet lil cakes in the supreme oven, so we can be gutsy and serve them to our homosexual friends.  We ain't haters!

LMAO  ;D ;D ;D

it's funny, with the homosexual thing. when my students write, i can usually pic out all my GLBT students (or at least ones who are clued in) because everyone always uses "homosexual". interesting they never ask why i always ex it out and put in a more appropriate term...

I would assume that someone using that word is trying not to be offensive.  I dunno.  I don't like it when a man uses "tw@t" or "c#nt".  Though I can call a vagina (or labia, for that matter, b/c  NO it is NOT all the same thing) whatever I darn well please.

Tkitty you are hilarious!  That was cute  :)

I also dislike when people say "ain't."  And I can't stand the word "lanky."  Ugh, it made me cringe just to type it...

I will also put in my two cents on Food Network TV personalities...  Now, I have gotten accustomed to Rachel Ray's "EVOO" and "sammies," and try to ignore Sandra Lee's "cutsy-isms" but Paula Deen has GOT to go.  If I accidentally turn on the TV for even a second when her show is on I am instantly annoyed...

"Ya'all take yer' stick o' buttah and roll it around in 'em bread crums, nice 'n covered now ya'hear (licks butter off fingers)...  Ain't she purrty?  Then were gonna deep fry 'er in some here o'il (annoying laugh) and serve 'er up with a big ol' pile a greazy chickin'! (another annoying laugh)  Don't cha go changin' yer channel we gots more deep fried fat comin' up!"

Ugh... Sorry I am just not a fan...

Paula Deen is... Paula Deen.  I think she's gotten more annoying lately.

Oh my gosh! I'm a word freak and there are some I just hate. I hate a lot of words but here are the toppers. Other than the first one they are in no particular order....some of them I hate to type.

1: "Panties" I don't know why this word makes me think of a child molester every time.
2: fagot and fag---totally derogatory. Unacceptable
3: Dyke/dike dunno how to spell it but its totally inappropriate.
4: fart. I blush just thinking of this word.
5: "poop" ewwe. My children will absolutely not call their waste poop or poopie or anything similar to that. They shall refer to it a s a bowel movement. Excrement.Stools. Waste. Defecating...whatever. Whenever somebody uses that word their IQ drops like 25 points in my opinion or something. Its just gross! >:(

"Poop" may be gross, but I've always hated "dump" more.

Nazi.  Except for Seinfeld's Soup Nazi, of course.  It's completely overused and diminishes the evilness of the Nazi party.

"retarded" =  >:(

kids pretending to shoot people or things going "bang bang" will get a reprimand from me... even strangers kids... guns aren't toys... >:( >:(

Vegheadzealia... don't come to my house... my kids are going through a potty mouth stage and everything is poopy, peepee, fart, toot, bum... To my disgust, they are actually calling me "mummy bummy" and "thief" is also a potty word at our house, don't ask me how they came up with that one, but its really not appropriate to be standing in line at the grocery store going "thief, thief" and then giggling uncontrollably.  (Time-outs didn't work, ignoring it has been moderately successful, but when they start-up when we're out I can't ignore it!!!  ::) some peoples kids)

Nazi = dutch (and german ?)  word for "Nation" so if you go to these countries you'll hear the word alot in news broadcasts etc.

I agree with TKitty about the "dump" thing--my cousins always talk about "taking a dump"--yuck. "Poop", on the other hand, is a funny word--"poo" is even better, in my opinion.

I also hate the word "gay" to describe something stupid (junior high and high school kids are the worst about this). Similar to the "retarded" thing, I think.

Oh, and similar to the gun thing but not to the word thing, anyone else really hate those rollerskate shoes that kids have now? Ugh, I HATE those things! You couldn't wear a normal pair of rollerskates in the store, so why can kids wear these? They just skate all over the store, run into you, cut you off, etc. etc. Sorry, angry rant.

Oh, the rollerskate shoes.  ::)  Yeah, I've encountered a kid or two wearing those stupid things.  I try to not get too annoyed.  I figure at least they're away from the violent video games for a bit.

I taught my dogs the "bang bang" comand. They pretend to flop over dead when somebody points at them and says "bang, bang." Its kinda weird that I'd teach them this one cause I'm totally anti-violence anti-guns. I think I envisioned educational presentations at elementary schools. but now I just blush when kids in the park as if they know any tricks. The "bang, bang" is their most reliable- cause they get a tummy scratch every time. I wont even buy my nieces and nephews squirt "guns" squirting and healed gadgets, sure...but not if they even REMOTLY resemble a gun. Then I taught preschool, I was really strict about the pretend violence too. Kids pretend to punch and karate chop one another all the time. But if my kids ever screamed "fire , fire" I don't even now what I would do! That is soooooooo bad, but kids still do it- most parents don't care. I was in a restaurant once and a two year old kept saying The F Word...and the two people she was with, presumably her parants, didn't seem to notice at all. They had this toddler int eh smoking section and were blowing smoke into her pretty little blond face. She kept saying it louder and louder. Maybe they were trying the "ignore it and it will go away" method. I probally wouldn't have thought as much of it if they weren't exposing her to second hand smoke---but it just made me think they were unfit parents.

I often cringe at the word "vegan"--mainly because I only hear it spoken with malicous.  "Oh--you're a vegan" "we don't have anything for you vegan" etc.  And I also have a HUGE intolerance to spoken repetition, so hearing the word "vegan" many times made it develop into a dissonant chord for my ears. 

Other words:
-flustered (or any word starting with "fl", even flowers or flow or flubber.  I just don't like that sound "ffll".  Infact, "f" sounds in general are kind of uncomfortable.  They just sound clumsy to me)
-tummy
-ED
-Bacon

Sounds in general:
-running faucet
-chewing/eating noises

ahhh!Tummy! I hate that one. It sounds so Juvenile!

I remember once in college, this girl was praying for our food and said something like "bless this food to our tummies..." and I audibly said "ehhh." oops. Got some weird looks. Could never see that girl again without thinking "tummy"

A word I'm really trying hard not to say is "bloody" I'm not from England so its not a bad word to me. I use it a lot though, instead of The F Word. But I have a bunch of English aquaintaces that i talk to and it really offends them. They don't Care if I say The F Word....just not "bloody."

I'm really bothered by the word "gringo" as I am all racial slurs. Growing up in Tucson, people got beat-up, offended and called out if that word was used. When I moved to Maine my Spanish teachers used it liberally. Now everyone is saying it. Even here in Tucson. To me its like the "N" word for people of African decent or the "W" word for Mexicans.
