Twitter (as a verb)
As well as the overuse of the word "random" out of context. And 'lol,' particularly when it just seems to be used in place of a full stop, especially on Facebook statuses- "Jeff Smith has just been for a walk after work lol" Fuck off and die. Also, someone has just started in my work who ends every email they send with "Regard's" and that apostrophe angers me more than genocide.
i.e. insecure- much?
The only one I wouldn't mind is
because it sort of sounds as though someone's in a shop and can literally not believe a product exists and then sees the look on the shopkeeper's face ( the look is a 'whaaat the f..' kind of look) so the person adds '-much?' on the end as if the person is just asking the price like a normal person would.'
I cant help but say twatter in a really starnge yorkshire meets deranged idiot manner... which to be fair is my natural accent.
anFUGHOHG i just want the computer to WORK NORMAL>
BUT EevN UNChecking the box hasn't sorted IT oUt
it's the new 'random'
it's not even a word!
monies, however, is
in this context
'go to the pub last night?'
and the media sticking 'crunch' together with other words to describe things which are really just 'events' and not 'crunches' of any sort. what the fuck's a 'crunch' as a noun anyway, aside from the sound you make when you bite into a mouthful of cereal?
e.g. THE SNOW CRUNCH
THE ENVIRONMENT CRUNCH
the other day a guy in some TV industry mag described the public's changing attitude to reality TV caused by Jade Goody's illness as THE JADE CRUNCH. hopefully, someone has since deprived this man of his eyesight and ability to control his bowels.
WELL DONE YOU HAVE HEARD OF SONIC YOUTH, FUCKTARD. NOW STOP IT.

is your face, smushed along the guitar strings until you have no speech capabilities left, then you will realise how valuable a simple word such as 'your' is and you will regret the day you ever thought that the abomination that is 'yr' was an acceptable alternative.

afternoon - avo
conversation - convo
Or any other similar misdemeanours.
more particularly when people use it in place of hold-fire.
bugs, and bears
to make one more awesome thing.
when referring to a band. You normally find that old men use this when reminiscing about the classic rock days.
Dear Sweet Jesus on THE CROSS.
'Hey yeah Andrew can you just action this for me?'
'You mean can I DO it for you?'
'Yuh, yuh but I'm an aspiring middle-management twat so I can't just say that.'
'Die. Now please'
or "scope", as in "can you scope this for me"
"I'll give the matter some thought when I'm carring home this evening"
"Can you give me a rough Guesstimate?"
I beg your pardon???
when referring to any sportsperson.
I use it far too often, due to EVERY SINGLE PERSON I WORK WITH constantly saying it.
And people use it lots on here too, with the compulsory full stop to imply 'end of conversation'.
thats bad banter.
I really hate this word.
The word 'fantastic' does all the same and more.
'Pop' as in 'fizzy pop'. I understand it's mostly used by people over the age of 65, but it still sounds daft.
