What are some common words/phrases you irrationally hate?
Basically, what are words/phrases that just don't sit well with you?
I really hate when people say, "This is a really nice shoe" or "this is a really nice pant" because it sounds so extremely pretentious. To me, it's more normal to say "These are nice shoes" or "These are nice pants". I cringe when people say it singularly.
Also, extra-casual nicknames like "Babe" and "buddy" are so extremely overused here in the US.
Like someone speaking their girlfriend - "Babe, come here and look at this" I would hate to be called 'babe', and not because of some feminist reason, but because it's just a careless way of addressing someone. It's almost disrespectful imo to not call someone by their name, unless they're okay with it. I feel like it's as disrespectful as "hey you!"
Or like when a guy talks to their kid or their pet "Hey buddy, what are you doing?" Again...it's so cringy. Call them by their name. There's a guy on youtube who does videos about animals at his zoo or something, and in every single video he's calling them, "Heyyy buddyyyy" it's so f-ing annoying.
These are just pet peeves, and I know it's irrational. But do you have any common words/phrases that simply rub you the wrong way?
