Terms and sayings that make you cringe

Recommended Posts

rabbit hyde

Prompted by overhearing a conversation in the kitchen at work.

 

Are there any sayings or terms that make you cringe whenever you hear them? Regardless of whether you can figure out why.

 

I, personally and for reasons unknown cringe whenever I hear adults talk about having "pocket money".

I really dislike being called 'darl, sweetie. hun' etc by shop assistants, it annoys me even more when they are obviously younger then me.

- "It wasn't me, it was [name of errant sibling]."

- "You love [name of sibling] more than me."

- "I don't like this dinner - I want [name of completely different meal]."

- "Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum!"

'Hero' or 'Warrior' when used to describe a footy player. Blerghhh, it's only a game!

"oh Bless" or "Bless" when remarking on a cute or sweet event.

Totes, unless it is referring to multiple tote bags. It never is, and it drives me bonkers. My sisters also like to use the word adorbz (not a word), and often call DS totes adorbz. I deserve a goddamn medal for not having punched them yet.

 

I also hate pretty much all the terms that have oddly transplanted mum or mother or mummy into them. Think mummy blogger, mumpreneur etc. The idea that having a kid somehow makes a difference to the ability to do these things makes me irrationally angry
