Things people say that bug you
 
I realized I can't stand the phrase "Ya think?" when I (I guess) I say something obvious.

But I caught myself saying it. :roll:

Not good, right?

Paul Motter March 7th, 2013 10:44 AM

"Ya Think?"

(beat you to it.)

When you tell someone something and they respond "Shut Up" but not meaning for you to be quiet.

When something is "for free"
And when someone "axes" me instead of asks

"You need to give 110%".

There is no such thing as 110%. It's either 100% or something less.

Take care,

I cannot stand listening to interviews when the person constantly says "you know."

Another is when television reporters constantly say something like don't forget to watch a certain show tomorrow night at 8PM . They should say tomorrow at 8 PM

Paul Motter March 7th, 2013 12:24 PM

"It is what it is" - that has to be one of the dumbest things a person could ever say.

"You have to give 110%" - technically incorrect, but I get it, it's "more than you think," - that's the idea so I never thought this was that bad.

Kind of like looking at a shooting star and saying "wow, cool" and having a nerdy kid say "well, actually it's space debris burning up in our atmosphere so it is really hot!!!!"

"Right, thanks for clarifying that." :rolleyes:

Ya Know What I'm Sayin'? :mad:

BigMac March 7th, 2013 02:36 PM

Um....

Just pause and think... leave out the um.
I cannot stand a publc speaker who says Um throughout a presentation.

Dave Beers March 7th, 2013 03:06 PM

"Do you understand what I am saying?" Was it in English? Then yes, I understood.

Truck Cruiser March 7th, 2013 03:18 PM

They disrespected me!:mad: I can't stand it when I hear that! Respect is earned never a given.

Lakers Fan March 7th, 2013 03:33 PM

Another one is people who say I seen instead I saw .

Trip March 7th, 2013 03:49 PM

I think this is a regional thing, but, when someone says, drugged instead of dragged.

When speaking with a couisn, she will consistantly say, within our conversation: That's a question mark, instead of saying I don't know.

I hear ya..of course you do, you are just inches away from me;)

Paul Motter March 7th, 2013 04:18 PM

Someone very close to me who I will not identify as my wife has habit of starting a conversation without thinking about what she is going to say first, so she will say to me...

"Can you please get me the .... (pause - she can't think of the word)." I mean she does this ALL the time. Now, because I usually know what she wants I just reply, but if I don't know it is really frustrating to have to wait for her mind to conjure the word. This is MOST conversations...! (the things we live with, right?)

So, I have asked her "could you please stop and think about what you want before you open your mouth and start talking?" - Nope, she just doesn't work that way. It's like she is having an ongoing conversation with you and you are supposed to somehow know what she means.

"So, when are you going to do that?" She might ask e out of the clear blue.

"Do what??"

"You - know,that..... (can't think of the word)" ;)

Paul Motter March 7th, 2013 04:29 PM

How about the verb "be?"

Where you be at? "bein' as you ain't here?"

Sid1962 March 7th, 2013 05:38 PM

A lot of the things already mentioned are annoying to me, and so are these:

Inappropriate and over use of the word so. "I am so not going to do that" as an example. Or starting a sentance with the word so. "So, I think you said thus and such".

Saying every sentance as if it were a question. It's where the last few words are pronounced as a question and somewhat louder that the preceeding one. You would know it if you heard it.

Finally, frequent use of the F-word as an adjective. In fact, the casual and frequent use of it at all, especially in a business setting. Young people seem to be more guilty of this than other age groups by my observation.

So there.....:)

That one is very common here in the Maritimes, drives me nuts.

I can't stand it when someone uses I when they should be using me; for example, "He sent a gift to my brother and I." You hear it all the time! If they would just stop and say the sentence this way, "He sent a gift to I," it would be obvious to them how wrong it is!

Welcome to married life. :)

"Gimmee" instead of "give me"
"I am going to crank the car" and "I just went out and crunk the car"
"I ain't got no money" The double negative implies the opposite.

"What Ever"

Lakers Fan March 8th, 2013 08:24 AM

One more .I have a cousin close to me in age who constantly says " my bad ." I can really do without hearing that .

green_rd March 8th, 2013 08:47 AM

Like Really

Aerogirl March 8th, 2013 10:00 AM

I think we need to just start slapping these people! :p

seadog2 March 8th, 2013 01:02 PM

"What up dawg"!?!?
"What yo name is"
"We be". I guess it depends on what side of the tracks you're from.

I do believe "my brother and me" is the incorrect form. "My brother and I" is correct usage.
