I don't know about the rest of you but it seems that every person I speak to that's between 20 and 35 years old feels the need to drop in the words or terms such as  "smashed it" "genuinely" at any given opportunity in either a conversation I'm having with them or one that I over hear between two other people of similar ages

 

Words or terms such as:

 

"smashed it" as in "yeaa totally smashed it today" even more irritating is that more often than not they are normally refering to a menial minor task that they are trying to make into a bigger one than it actually was, rather than a major life changing one.

 

Another word that's overly used is the word "genuinely" as in "no, he genuinely said that"

 

GRrrrrrr stop saying these words its so bloody irritating,

 

How do these words/terms come about about in the first place?

 

Any words/phrases that p[people use that you find irritating? 


I knew there was another word that i forgot to mention that is also "MASSIVELY" over used, can you guess what it is? :)

Yeah, people who say 'a 12 month' instead of a 'year'.

What as in a phone contract like 24 months? Dammit just say 2 years!

 

Did the words and terms that I mentioned annoy you to?

It's usually when someone says something like 'I haven't smoked for a 12 month'. What's the point in that?

 

I'm indifferent to the ones you mentioned. I do have a few others, though:

 

  • Bae
  • When people don't know the difference between 'should have' and 'should of'
  • People who say there instead of their

 

"Inbox me" - I hate that phrase more than you can ever imagine.

 

Wish there was a sick smiley

Everything Beiber has said or ever will say.

Some good ones, coming through haha!

I knew this would be a hot topic!

Yea "going forward" is very annoying I think we are starting to enter David Brent territory. Haha.

The office is rife with annoying terms and figure of speeches, here's another one; "just wanted a heads up on where we are at" grrrr

"Raging", "Lush" and "Fam", are my top hates, but there's soooo many i can't even type that many characters a day.

 

The worst thing for me is, as soon as all that stupid wannabe gangster speak was starting to subside in London, i moved to Scotland, and lo and behold, 5 years later it's starting to spread here, with people starting to use words i hated 5 years ago, like they're new and exciting grrrr.

Funnily enough, a girlfriend of mine used to say ''Lush'' in a slang type way, so did her crowd  - that was back in erm..... 1988. Or was it 1888? I can't remember. Let me check the portrait of myself in the attic for clues.

 

Apparently she was nearly 30 years ahead of her time.

 

I have this theory that as time goes on, all the good words get used up by the previous generations. If you're a young kid, you can't use the same words as your parents or grandparents so you have to think of new ones, but problem is the selection narrows through the passage of time, so the only ones left are the shitty ones.

 

Hence the arrival of all these stupid words - they're the only ones left.

 

Unless you re-vamp old ones, but then it sounds really weird - ''Oh my days'' would be an example of this. A couple of my second cousins say this. The first time I heard them say it I thought it sounded very weird, almost upper class.

 

Mind you, I can talk, I still say ''man'' which is pretty ancient.

 

Sometimes I feel a bit sorry for the young 'uns. All the good ideas have been done it seems, musically, linguistically, culturally, and they search for new different stuff to express themselves but the only stuff left is manufactured crap being sold to them by the media and middle aged materialistic talentless R&B autotune idiots.

In Scotland they don't ask you where you live, they ask you where you 'stay'.

Which, i'm sorry, makes it sound like a temporary thing.
