Does this bother anyone else? Being an avid reader and now a Writer, I’ve become a bit of a “word snob”. If I’m reading along and I find errors, I cringe. Or depending on the publication, it bugs the hell out of me! I think to myself “these people should know better!”
Now, some of these things seem to be quite acceptable in the English language. But they still make me cringe or blush even! Here’s a list of the most irritating words/phrases that are used in writing that just Bug the Living Hell out of me!
Hella As in “That was a hella good pizza.” Dumb, just dumb.
Ain’t I know, I know, this is quite acceptable. But I still don’t like it and I don’t HAVE to like it!!
Anyways This is used instead of the word anyway. Leave the damned “S” off of the end!!
I seen Man, if you ever want to REALLY piss me off, use this phrase! I HATE this!
Y’all Ok, I know that this is going to ruffle some feathers, especially now that I live in Texas! I find the use of this more funny than irritating. I find it especially funny if I find it in writing or correspondence.
I’m not perfect, but I think Miss Stiff would be proud. 🙂
Am I leaving anything out? Are there words or phrases that irritate you?
