    Default Words and phrases that leave a bad taste your mind

    Like the title says, list the words and phrases that leave a bad taste in your mind for whatever reason.

    For me, it's--


    Grow up

    Earn/earn it

    Real world

    It's my job/that's their job

    This doesn't change anything

    I think I get what you mean.

    For whatever reason, the words shampoo and cardigan have always been 'ugly' words to me. No idea why.

    I don't like it when people say the term "toss it" to throw away trash/whatever. It brings me back to a time when someone was commanding me to throw something away that I really didn't want to when I was a kid, so now whenever I hear it I get brought back to that moment. Uugh.

    I've always felt that the phrases "too soon" and "it was a different time" are poor excuses for resenting jokes made in bad taste and allowing poor behavior, respectively. If something is bad to do, it's always bad to do and nothing changes that to me. I believe time is a made-up human concept anyway. It's hard to explain, but anything having to do with time gives me difficulty. [/puttingmyopinioninslashessopeopleseethatirealizethatmyopinionisunpopularandhopefullywon'tbustmyassab outit]

    "No offense, but..."

    "It's just my opinion!"/"Freedom as speech!!1!"

    "Get over it"/"Deal with it" in almost all of the contexts its said to me in.

    Same with "What did you expect?!" as a response.

    I have one that I despise, and it's "sit like a lady". I hate being told that. Why should I have to sit any different to anyone else just because I'm a girl? If somebody says it to me, I'll usually just ignore them. As for actual words, I've always hated the word "cunt". I feel it's just too much to drop in casual conversation. It makes me wince.

    I could go on all day about this stuff.

    consumer
    premium
    gamer
    gaming
    center
    wi-fi *shudder*

    Why? Well, in order, because it's being used to refer to things that aren't literally consumed, because it's referred to upsell anything for any reason, the word is player and playing, because it's used to describe everything ("book center vs. bookstore") and lend an air of nebulous importance, because it doesn't mean anything.

    Really I spend far too much time freaking out over linguistic matters. I've got a much bigger list...

    • Get a life/Grow up: That phrase always felt rather mean, or for me at least. Although I do find "get a life" a lot harsh.
    • Perfect match: Just because somebody has different interests doesn't mean they cannot be with you. Looking for a "perfect match" is disgraceful.
    • I have the same problem too: Why tell somebody that when that isn't a valid answer? It is pointless and silly.
    • Diaper: ...I am never going to type that dreaded word down again. I always despised both the word and the thing itself, it makes me cringe badly.
    • Basically: The most overused word. Need I say more?

    In the same vein, it bothers me when people say "I was obviously joking" as a cop out when they say something stupid as opposed to admitting that they made a mistake and owning up to it.

    "I'm not racist but..." followed by a clearly racist statement.

    I'm not elitist, but I think some people are pretty dumb.

    Eh..."In my opinion" or "can I ask you a question?" These are just plain annoying.

    Please just state your opinion, I know it's yours! You don't have to tell me that, stop trying to shield yourself from my 'judgment'. The same with the other one, just ask your question. Don't give me a harbinger before it! I'm quite intelligent, I understand what a question is! xD

    I really, really hate the words 'tyke', 'shucks', and 'golly'. They just irritate me so much, I really can't describe...

    Also, even though I love a good curse every once in a while, I hate it when people overdo it for no good reason. Like, I personally don't curse myself except inside my head.

    "I don’t put much stock in anyone else’s opinions of a person.
    I prefer to judge the people I meet with my own eyes."

    I'm going to start saying "no offense" before things that are completely non offensive. "No offense, but I like your hair." "No offense, but can you tell me where the bus stop is?" "No offense, but did you catch that last episode of Breaking Bad?"
    That's nice.
