    The use of the word 'so' with that Friends inflection. I'm so going to have a frapuchino. DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE!


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

    Plus FUCKING one.

    That's incredibly annoying and it's often use by people who talk with an upward inflection at the end of EVERY sentence. Makes me want to kill everything.

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

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

    This person should not be your friend. Sorry.

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

    Less annoying than "mindmap" or "blue sky thinking" or indeed any other business wanker terms, though. Fucking HATE business bullshit lingo.

    Tell him to sort it out or he's on his own. It's up to us to stop this epidemic.

    I hate the word 'robust' now. I wish those management tossers would find a different word to use.

    According to the Oxford English dictionary. Deception, is the action of Deceiving.

    What have I missed here?

    Oh by the way.

    My contribution would be "Yaah".

    Also, any word that rises in tone at the end of the sentence. Unless, it really is a question.

    Let's all stop this gay banter now. I've brainstormed that we should incentivize ourselves to go down to a Maccy Dee's because although the food is pap it's deceiving at how addicting it is.

    Celebrity.

    Especially when used as a prefix for something.

    Celeb is worse :p

    I hate fresh, when used in any context other than food, e.g. a manager bringing on a fresh pair of legs in a football match.

    Your weekly shop

    Some pony-tailed tosser at an ad agency uses it and then everyone follows suit. When did we have the referendum that the whole country would stop saying shopping overnight?

    Do people really say "addicting"? It always gets trotted out in these threads, but I've never heard someone use it.

    Also, people (usually sales reps.) who say "yourselves" in the misguided belief that it is more polite than saying "you" or "your business/company". Wankers.

    I'm pretty sure 'addicting' is American English for 'addictive'.

    Whilst we're on the subject of American English, I hate the phrase 'I could care less'. MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.

    Hate the word all you like.

    It's still a word.

    And a proper non-made up one at that.

    I think you may have misheard that phrase. I always heard it as "I couldn't care less"

    better put as "I don't give a shit"

    No, there really are people who say "I could care less". And yes, they should die.
