What are words that people use everyday that annoy you.
When men (or rather, boys) call random women they want to get with “bitches”. And I dont mean, calling her a “bitch” if she really is being mean. Im talking about when a guy says stuff like “Im gonna pick up some bitches”. Any guy that says stuff like that is just immature and i lose respect for him immediately.
@ Alex~I have a good friend who is insanely grossed out by the word “moist” too haha!
I’m kind of striving to have no words at all bother me. It seems silly really to have “words” bother you. They’re literally “grunts” or “noises” that we as a species make. Putting a negative connotation on them isn’t necessary.
If you use certain words enough, you kind of wear them out and their meaning falls apart and isn’t so offensive anymore. I’m not saying it’s “weak” of a person to have certain words physically/emotionally affect them…but I do think it would be “strong” to be able to be immune to that.
Butt…. to join the party here: I’m with Skye, “procedures” gets under my skin. Although “policies and procedures” is even worse.
Words don’t really bother me. I try not to use words that I know are offensive to other people though. I never really like to hurt peoples feelings or make them feel bad.
Racial slurs are no good.
The word retard can be extremely hurtful and I wish it didn’t exist.
The word “can’t” because if there is “will” there is a “way”. All things “can” live together peacefully. We “can” stop fighting and start letting all that super awesome love connection thing flow, or you can continue to let your desires and beliefs get the best of ya ;)
For some reason the word “clinical” bothers me, but in general, I have to agree with Bobby about racial slurs, the word retard, and a few particular situations involving swears. I know it’s really juvenile/immature of me to be bothered when people swear, but what usually gets me is the way people say it or in what context it is used. For example, a “neighbor” in my college dorm talks loudly normally (which drives me nuts when it’s past 4am), but when she swears it has such a shocking and immobilizing effect on me for some reason. She swears just to swear – I’m not bothered when people cuss normally (as in they do it most of the time), but when a word is used just to grab attention, it really and truly concerns me – I just can’t help it.
my friend Katie is absolutely disgusted by the word moist
I however cringe whenever I hear the word “munch”
also, god help you if you say volumptuous in my presence, it drives me absolutely bonkers!
and it irks me slightly whenever someone says “aks” instead of ask, but that’s just me
