There always seems to be a wave or words that come along once in a while that when I hear them they make the bottom lid of my right eye twitch. Some are new, others are old, but have started to annoy me more recently because it seems as if their popularity has begun to increase.
Below are some that I can think of off the top of my head. I guarantee there are others that I am
OMG. Don’t kid yourself into thinking that people don’t say this as a word. Ohhhh they do and it’s fucking annoying. If you type it, I get it, I hate most abbreviations, but I get it. I see that and in my head I don’t hear, “oh em gee”, I hear, “oh my God”!!
If you have said “OMG” out loud (as “oh em gee”) and where 100% serious, as in you weren’t saying it in a kidding manner or to illicit a humorous response, then you’re an idiot.
Nosh. This is a Yiddish word. Not that matters a whole lot, but it’s a Yiddish word and people try to use it because it sounds more dignifying, maybe? Or because it’s hip and cool? I just made that all up, I have no idea. I do, though, think the word is worthy of a death from our vocabulary.
Unless you are using it with the meaning in UK slang, to nosh. That would actually be funny.
(Side note: Any combined celebrity couples names [i.e. Bennifer or Brangelina or TomKat] or shortening of a celebrities name [Lindsay Lohan as Li Lo or La Lo or La Lohan] or last, but not least, the combining or certain popular words [bromance, frenemy, etc…) all need to end…good God it just needs to end!)
