Words you hate hearing

    So a candy bar commercial just came on and naturally the word "nougat" (sp?) was said. That made me realize how much I effing hate hearing that word. I know, it doesn't make sense, but I can't believe I'm the only person who hates hearing certain words.

    Anybody else out there get irrationally angry when hearing certain words or pronunciations of words? I have more, but I'll wait.

    The C bomb, closely followed by the L bomb. Both frighten me, for different reasons.

    The word 'affluent' pronouced with the emphasis on the second syllable.  Curse you, Bill Kurtis.

    My mother used it too much when I was growing up. I could never spend the night at a friend's house unless she knew what the "itinerary" was going to be. I could never go on a field trip unless she had a printout of the "itinerary". I didn't have a high school class schedule, I had a "daily itinerary". Arrgh.

    Thank you for this thread. It's a venting that has been a long time coming.

    Oh wait. You said "words." Never mind. SINCE IT'S NOT A FUCKING WORD.

    Thank you.

    As in, "She has some serious issues."

    Irrational? Perhaps.

    But I really don't care!

    Glad to help. Itinerary is awful, especially from a parent, who makes it that much more annoying everytime it's said. I'd kill myself if my Mom or Dad ever said nougat.

    EDIT: My bad, IJAG. ::)

    One that makes me crazy ... "Impact" used as a verb.
