fuck you, idiot.
mad bants up in here
the first one is even worse when used in a shite wishy-washy folk pop turd of a song.
mm that looks delish
no idea why it makes my skin crawl but it does.
Someone ought to lock Boris Johnson and Bob Crow in a room together and... actually, that ought to do it.
or any variations.
also the word chill as in to chill out really winds me up, probably cause it just seems the sort of word a trendy 'uncle' would say
as in, "yeah i met him, he's really chill"
or people who refer to the fact that they have a tan by saying "i'm really tan". ed. TANNED. you wouldn't say "i'm feeling sleep" or "my dog is so fur"
Yep, it does kind of sound like english might not be your first language when you say things like that.
Is sounding stupid the new cool?
People who don't understand the difference between "bias" and "biased".
Chai tea's been around a lot longer than you have (unless you're in fact Zoukoudian, in which case, apologies!)
It is a product name. Is your problem with the word 'latte' then, because if so, I'm on your side with that one. It's a milky fucking coffee.
(and a 'latte' is actually coffeeish hot milk, not milky coffee)
(yes i have a huge problem with it (apart from when i'm speaking italian, it's ok then))
Who's coat is tha jacket?
Or random as a noun. Or random as in anything but a random selection.
someone on facebook has just said "en route to London tomorrow" ARGH.
that is wrong isn't it? i'm not just being really stupid?
Someone corrected me to 'on route'.
They were laughed at.
End Of Play
END OF PLAY !
(in a non sports enviroment
if a referee shouted that at the end of a football match rather than blowing the whistle.
or other variations on that
UNEXPECT THIS *plops tackle onto baggage area*
Enchanting Dubrovnik''Enchanting Grimsby
I doubt that enchanting has ever been put within 5 words of Grimsby...
But one that kills me is when people say "To coin a phrase" when they mean, "To use a well-known phrase that many people have already used before me"
And 'close/end of play' at work as in "I need that report by close of play today". FUCK OFF.
about a pregnant lady, especially if she uses it about herself. Urgh so gross.
who then goes on to describe the tot as her 'little man'
dont do anything i wouldnt do!' annoys the shit out of me
for any job that pays less than 13k a year. go fuck yourselves.
people will say 'and then I turned around to her and said BLAHBLAHBLAH, and then she turned around to me and said MEHMEHMEH', which makes me wonder- at the beginning of this exchange, were you both actually standing back to back?
stick your blog up your fucking cock you cunt.
also, anyone that gets paid to review things that uses the phrase 'life-affirming' should have their fingers removed.
'breakfast....MOAT IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY'
please get to fuck.
It'd be th'internet if anything. Why do non-northeners think people from Yorkshire put a 't' infront of everything?
"Want to come for a bit of a walkage?"
"Ahh man i'm stressed from all the examage"
"We're just off out for some boozage, wanna come?"
"I'm pissed, fancy going for some taxiage"
Also see 'me likey'
Only if it's used for original words like you used it there with examage that was funny
used exclusively by annoying people.
No, I'm a bit on the thick side. Can you explain it to me again, slowly?
Amazing being used as a catch-all descriptive term.
"It was just amaaaazing! Amazingly brilliant."
Really? What amazed you about it? Give me some detail, for the love of Christ.
People who overuse the word Wonderful. They devalue it. "And they served the most wonderful bread with our meal...."
Was it FULL OF WONDER? No. It was bread. It tasted nice, and I don't want to devalue your experience, but can we use some more realistic phrasing here? Can we?
THANKS IN ADVANCE
Because it goes without saying the universe serves your needs unquestioningly. Politeness with an edge of dominance. What's not to like?
Especially if said by someone who isn't very famous during BBC3's Glastonbury coverage. Every media ponce has a Twitter; that's why I don't.
'It's just a different way of life out there' (or similar concept) when expressed by anyone returning from a period of travelling in Australia or Thailand (The round-the-world 18-30 circuit). Being on holiday is always going to be different from not being on holiday. That's why it's called a holiday.
Person A: I really hate that rich guy with the five Porsches.
Person B: Jealous much?
Me: [to Person B] Fuck you [punch, stab].
Also: "I would have liked to have seen that movie".
No, you wouldn't.
You could say "I would like to have seen that movie" (i.e. right now, I feel a desire to have seen it back then).
Or you could say "I would have liked to see that movie" (i.e. back then, I wanted to see it at the time).
But "I would have liked to have seen it" is just fucking ugly and inelegant. And everybody says it, all the time.
because the people who hate people who misuse literally are the kind of people who quote monty python and have goatees.
everybody knows literally hardly ever means literally, it's just really funny to use it wrong
he shit his pants. he LITERALLY shit his PANTS.
If enough people use a word in a particular way then THAT becomes the meaning of the word. That's how language evolves. Otherwise we'd literally all be speaking caveman.
can do one.
Well of course I fucking don't.
The use of the word creative as a noun
