Hulkamaniac. I am a Hulkamaniac, still hoping to call that guy my father in-law one day.
"Blinker fluid" gets on my nerves. Back in my time it was "Muffler bearings". I always thought that one was stupid too.
Here's a few more:
Not that it irritates me - just find it interesting. Canadians- eh? My husband’s Aunt from Georgia frequently ended a conversation with “ Don’t you know” and one of his friends asks “Want to come with?” - he’s from Minnesota.
At work we had a director who would frequently use the bus analogy - if we didn’t agree she would be happy to stop the bus and kick us off. One time she said she wouldn’t even come to a stop. — you either agreed and were on the bus or you were off the bus. Nice lady, eh?
Lemme axe you a queck-shun, how come you find it offensive? Is that like some use of the word "scrimps" instead of "shrimps"? 'Cause I use "axe" in jest - deliberately.
I do know a few people who actually use "axe' in place of ask all the time, in conversation, but not in writing. Is it a regional thing?
“the new normal”
"Sir, do you know how fast you were driving?"
Of course not, I'm simply being reckless. Heavens. I am damn well aware of my speed.
My grandma (Mom's mom) used to say "Oh, poopy dick!" when things went awry.
Mom would be so embarrassed to hear that from her mom's lips.
But all of us grandkids thought it was so funny.
Now, years later, I'm left wondering what the origin of that saying was.
It's too late to ask Grandma though!
A: Say wut?
"A friend of mine....."
It might be perfectly fine to say this, for some reason it irks me. I don't know why, it just does. It sounds selfish.
Can't they just say "My friend" or "I have a friend"?
Yeaaaaaahhh...but from what I understand, it could also have a non Vegas connotation.
Oh y’all r gonna love dis:
My boss has always used the non-word Prioritorize. That extra "or" makes all the difference! I almost peed my pants when he invented the antonym Deprioritorize once. It hurts the mouth just trying to say it.
I just have to smile inwardly every time he breaks out that little nugget. I'm WAY past the annoyance stage by now.
I think that's a Forrest Gump thing. It's how Bubba pronounced it.
Freemont. Vegas addicts should know this one.
I understand how you feel.
I feel your pain.
No, that dress doesn’t make you look fat.
Do people think that you will do otherwise when they say, "Drive safe!"
And do people think that you have control when they say, "Fly safe!"
I drove up the sidewalk, killed a bunch of people, before driving into a plane that crashed into a building. I wish they would have told me to drive safely.
Separate names with a comma.
