    I fucking passionately detest the adjective 'pap'.

    It just sounds horrible and outdated. Cringe-worthy in the extreme and I hold it against anyone who uses it.

    "However"

    More but I can't think of them atm, i'll add some tomorrow.

    Slightly OT but I hate the phrase "when the shit hits the fan" not only because of the horrible mental image it brings to mind, but also because it's hard to figure out where it comes from. Also hate the saying "how are you?" because a) people saying are usually just making smalltalk and have no regards to how you actually are, which leads me on to b) I hate it because it's always followed by "I'm fine and you?"

    'actually' or 'actual' because it is misused so often as in "I got into the actual car" or "The criminal was actually inside the actual police van". Grrrrrrr

    'buttons' - the word makes me vomit carrots even when I haven't eaten any.

    'No'

    Examples:
    "Do you love me?" "No."
    "Did you fill the car?" "No."
    "I just wanted to ask if-" "NO."

    Deceiving.

    Whenever I hear it uttered, a little bit of me dies and a small voice in my head screams:

    "IT'S NOT A FUCKING WORD YOU BORDERLINE ILLITERATE COCKPIECE!"


    Edit: Ironically (that's another one, 99% of the time people use it, btw) I misspelled a word in my shouty bit. /o\

    'Banter'
    Abbreviating McDonald's to 'Mackey Dee's'
    The use of the word 'so' with that Friends inflection. I'm so going to have a frapuchino. DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE!

    Also, on a slight tangent, wankers who go into pubs they've never been in before and use their own bizarre dialect to order drinks.

    "Hello mate, what can I get you?"
    "Pint of Kronenberg, a G&T and a Red Bull and Two."
    "A Red Bull and what?"
    "Two"
    "Two?"
    (as if I'm some sort of backwards cunt) "Yeah, a Red. Bull. And. Two."
    "Yeah, I heard you, I just don't know what it is."
    "A Red Bull & Double Vodka. Have you never heard that before?"
    "Well clearly not, otherwise we wouldn't be having this delightful conversation, causing my other regular customers to wait, whilst I try to translate your impenetrable dialect."

    PC Brigade.
    Action used as a verb: 'If you can action that by Tuesday'.
    Party used as a verb: 'Let'd PAAAAARRRTY!'. Let's not.

    And bizarrely, people confusing 'less' and 'fewer'. One applies to discrete amounts, one does not. So you can have 'less sugar' but 'fewer sugar cubes'. NOT. HARD.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Oh another one is Crimbo for Christmas, hate hate hate it. It just makes my toes curl.

    I also get annoyed when people mix up less and fewer as well as lie and lay, but then I'm pedantic and studied languages, plus I don't hate the actual words.

    I might add brainstorm used as a verb: 'Can we brainstorm this?' Sorry, I'll just have to think about it instead...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Surely. Ever since a swotty nerd in my biology class would keep interrupting the teacher in class with pointless arguments that always began with "surely blah blah blah".

    I get this but at uni which makes it even more sad but he says "I was gonna say...", it really gets my goat.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Cunt

    Find the word unnecessary and vulgar.

    +1 on this. What's wrong with good, old-fashioned minge?

    I also hate the word 'actually'. Too stiff. People with surnames like Ponce-Sconsington say these types of words.

    Agreed. People who use 'so' like that should be rounded up and culled.

    Incentivize/ise

    That can go fuck itself out of existence as soon as possible.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Also people who tell stories by over-using the word 'like'.

    He was like 'shut up' and I was like 'oh my god', but he was like 'yuh-huh', and I was like 'nuh-uh'.

    I have a friend who does that with both 'like' and 'yeah'.

    "So, I was like driving along, yeah, and I saw this bloke, yeah, and like, I realised it was Matt, yeah, so I like beeped my horn, yeah, and he like looked up yeah, and...."

    He's a nice bloke, but sometimes he makes me want to drown puppies.
