Does anyone else not know whether to laugh or throat punch people when they say weird things? What are your pet peeves?

1) Calling someone, "Bae". No. Never.
2) I'm such and such "years young".
3) "Ain't nothing but a thing".
4) "Basic B**ch".
5) Yolo
6) "It's all about the bass". No, it isn't.
7) Someone is a "Thot".

There are more, but this is all I can think of right now. I just heard the Bae thing and I threw up in my mouth a little.

Oh I use yolo and bae a lot in an ironic way. Like if I tell someone about going to do something very trite and then end it with 'yolo'. Kind of hipster irony (which is a term that I have an aversion to :p).

Huh? I don't even know what most of these things mean..:lol::scratch:

1. It will be ready when it's ready
2. It's not rocket science
3. You will just know!!
4. I'm so ocd.
5. I hate 'years young' too!!
6. I don't like being called 'dear' though I'm fine with other terms of endearment
7. Just do it!!

Ok, so "yolo" is on the list...:eyebrow:

in French: "jeune homme" (young man)
when there are a group of retired guys in a café and a friend joins them and they say "hello jeune homme"!

BFF (although i suppose useful to distinguish from "BF")
which im assuming, is best friend forver vs boyfriend...

BAE: not even sure what that is, either

"webinar". is it that hard to write "web seminar"? "online training" ???

adding "-gate" on to any political scandal. Watergate. it was a one-time thing.
this makes even LESS sense in French, but they do it anyway.

"brexit". and it's potential "frexit".

Please, just stop...

Okay, so I looked up yolo and bae and I already forgot because they were dumb.

Some days I can get on board and some days I buck and squeal.

Or yeah bro's other 'yeah bra' which has nothing to do with foundation garments.

'Thot' haha, I always thought it was 'trim' but what do I know?

I don't even want to know.

You all sucked me into this.

Actually I'm not really a big fan of 'yanno'. Or even 'dunno' tbh.

Which brings me to 'tbh'.

Really don't like that one at all!

That was on my list too. Uggh. I'm never sure though if it isn't just a typo or if people maybe think that's actually correct. :scratch:

Sadly, no. It's everywhere.

Which brings us yet to another!

So far, this thread has been quite entertaining and maddeningly irritating.

Like Hermus, I sometimes say "yolo" in an ironic, and/or silly way.


Cheers,
Ian

Yep, the saying bro or bruh all the time is weird.
I'm good with ironic use of words, or occasional use, but it gets old quickly.
Most of these sayings I've heard out of the kids and their friends.
Instead of "yes", saying, "yaaaasss" or "yaaaaazzzz"

When I was in college I used to watch Ricki Lake and stuff like that with my roommate, we used to laugh at the often repeated:
"Talk to the hand!"
"She needs to get off Jenny Jones and go to Jenny Craig!"
And my personal favorite,
"Girl, you need to drop that zero and get yourself a hero!"

The phrase I hear all the time every where I go out, after I say "thank you" they say "no problem." That one bugs me. I didn't assume or inquire if it was a problem. Whatever happened to "you're welcome"?

Hehe..I say that at times. Also, I respond often with 'no worries' :o

No worries Fuzzy it's no problem here.:D

Just in real life when I am a customer and pay for something is when it really irks me.

I hate being told, "Good Luck" what's that all about anyway?

I also hate being asked, "How are you today?" It interrupts everything.

"not for nothing"
"I couldnt care less"
Pacifically instead of specifically
Supposably instead of supposedly
Their/There/They're confusion
ax instead of ask

I really hate when people say

"I could care less."

Instead of

"I couldn't care less."

Also:
"It's not rocket science"
