Words and phrases you hate and other animals
mat_j Posted: Wed Nov 14 08:02:28 2007 Post | Quote in Reply  
 
Prententious- because nobody seems to know what it means when they use it, especially but not only the folks down at the IMDB message board. In fact many in the amateur movie review world seem to define it as 'not a comedy' or in even simpler terms 'Drama'.

Self Indulgent- People who wave this phrase around like a loaded pistol tend to use it on things they want to criticise but know they will be outspoken if they do. It usually means, I have no evidence that what X. wrote is wrong but she did it in such a self indulgent way she spoiled the point of what she was saying (i.e. I disagree with X.'s point of view but i am too lazy to reasearch alternatives/ know she is right). Meanwhile worried chin strokers world wide leap harumphing on to the critics band wagon claiming they've never liked X and always suspected she was self indulgent.

Sophomoric- Especially when used to descibe anything other than the American Highschool system. It's second!! Second is a fine and useful word sophomoric really grinds my gears, i couldn't give a rats ass about some bands sophomoric attempts i want to hear about their second album.

Caveat- Because the only time i hear it is when people in offices are trying to A. keep their asses cool with a bit of useful information or B. they're using it to get money out of someone else.

As you can probably guess i've been reading bits and bobs from reviews and general magazine journalism this morning.

Thanks for dropping by!

  haha!


i dislike:
"panties"
"honky-dory"
"moist"
"kudos" - mostly when one person in particular says it.
"i suggest" when they really mean "you have to"

there are plenty more but this is just putting me in a bad mood.
it's really beautiful outside. too hot for a sweater! playtime!!

  Words said in anthro class that bother me:

Classificatory (it makes me physically cringe, I don't know why)
"the social" instead of "society," so annoying!

Just in general:
when people say things are "deep," like, "that movie was deep." It doesn't MEAN anything.

oh, i know there are more...but I can't think of them.

  "Very unique," because it is or it isn't, there is no very.

"Perfect," because NOTHING is, except the universe, if you're non-religious, or God, if you are.

"Rural," because I can't pronounce it to save my life.

And any combination of the word "poodle" with another dog, as if it's a breed. It's not, okay? You paid five hundred dollars for a MUTT.

Hehe, I completely agree...a new fad that's been driving me crazy is the schnoodle labradoodle thing.
Oh, but it was funny cause a friend of mine rescued a dog from a shelter and we thought it looked like a poodle/shitzu cross, so we called it a shit-poo.
Anyway...

LOL! I can just hear the announcers at the Westminster Dog Show...

"...and next in the irritating mutt category we have Stinky, the shit-poo on the floor"

  oddly enough, i realised that i use all the words i hate in conversation/letters to people. it is usually in a joking or sarcastic way, but i do.

example: i think the word "handsome" is simply terrible but i will still use it to compliment someone in a joke-y way.

  manifest, but it depends on how it is used.

If its used in shipping, then I hate it.

"haha hay gaiz is da menfest closd, how mny pkges on da manfest haha manifest manifest MANIFEST MEIN MÍSE MEIN MÍSE!"


God that used to piss me off working there.

  Oh man.

Used properly, manifest is an awesome word.

I like it. :(

  No no no, Kira.



No no no.


Manifest is a fine word when it is not being used in reference to a shipping manifest in a warehouse full of incompetent asshats who feel sophisticated when they use it, so they use it every chance they get. And then even when they don't have a chance.


It used to piss me off so much.


Yeah, you dipshits? efficacious. take that.

  Oh. That's all right then. I am opposed to asshats.

  Hmmm so it appears many women dislike the word moist (in this authors humble experience anyway)

Here's one that'll gross some folk out

treacle slit

  Into the hated phrases category:

"Since you have started dating him, you have absolutely no time for me left"

bluh
The fun of relationships

  Basically

At the end of the day

On a level playing field

all things considered

Are a series of phrases used mainly on radio talkshows to iron the complexities out of an argument and make the callers duff opinion correct

as in
"At the end of the day if you forget that 99% of the Moslem population of the UK are law abiding citizens pretty much everyone that's left is either a thief, sodomite, rapist or terrorist."

Pretty much any word used in place of vagina disgusts me. Unless the word is burgina. That's just hilarious.


Also, I once called my Penis General Purpurkopf.

Did he respond?

I bet your penis has nick names for you too, but probably nothing too imaginative, most likey "guy" or "dude", because dick's have really tiny brains so they're not real bright. That's why we always here women say to us, "Stop thinking with your dick!"

I'd be more worried about you if you said "no".
