You're not alone. Many stupid people feel that way.
This thread is crazy good. In fact, it's hella good.
Oh yeah, and "Gave shade" "Slapped back" etc.
Looks like we've been outed!
The whole story is, I get a huge kick out of our little language—who uses it how and how it changes to what.
And I get just as huge a kick out of being a curmugeon. Coming from a long line of cranks, it's pretty much bred in the bone.
So sir, card declined!
So, I'm over here like, I can't read this whole entire thread.
If any of you were from Baltimore, you wouldn't be commenting so casually. Shame on you all. Some people have been seriously traumatized by this kind of thing, and are still trying to recover.
As they produce the video that “broke the internet!!!!!”
Nice to find out I'm not the only one who chafes at the seemingly ubiquitous replacement of "no problem" for "you're welcome".
One implies "it's OK since it wasn't a problem for ME", while the other implies "I'm happy to help YOU". Big difference.
My partner (your boyfriend or are you a CPA in a firm?)
Misuse of literally. No, your phone did not literally ring off the hook.
Lose means you didn't win. Loose means it needs to be tightened.
Learnings and Trainings are not words.
I could care less. So you still care some?
It's only a "red light" when it's red. If it's green, do I still turn there?
Ending every sentence with "so".
Beginning each sentence with "so".
Saying "and I'm like..." in every sentence when recalling a conversation
Yes, I'm usually triggered within 10 minutes of getting to work.
In several communities around here, a lot of folks will make a statement or ask a question and then end it with the word "no". For example; "It's cold outside, no?"
Another one around here is that some folks don't go to "Applebee's", they go to "Applebeep's". And, they ask to sit in a "boof" instead of a booth! Oh well....
I grew up in philly, I absolutely hate how they talk. I’ve made it point in life to not say the acame it’s acme
Ruff it’s a roof
I’m not a college graduate but I’ve taken the time to learn how to speak and write properly. I can speak pretty fluent redneck, and cowboy, and communicate with horses but I can’t stand people who relish being illiterate.
Prolly gets me all the time , it’s probably, when did we stop teaching English in schools ?

South Baltimore Dialect, very charming in person and I discovered it involuntary when we moved here from the Midwest when I was ten years old and now to a degree I speak it. Especially when I'm in the mood to entertain visiting relatives or friends...
owe shen= ocean
go downy owe shen city= go down to Ocean City
Hay Hun= Hey Hon (friendly greeting)
In a phrase:
Hay Hun, as soon as I turn owen the zink and wersh my hands, were going to leave Bawlmer and drive downy owe shen city Merrlin. Wanna go?
Long thread, but surprisingly none of these bother me. I guess I don't pay attention.
I know that, and didn't state otherwise. The title of the thread is Words and phrases that hurt my ears. I didn't read anything about a time limit.
Mansplaining is also in Webster's dictionary: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mansplain
Just wait til "Okay Boomer" is recognized by Webster and added to the dictionary.
There are many mispronounced, offensive, and annoying colloquialisms in the dictionary going back a variety of lengths of time,... doesn't make it right.
I guess I will throw in my two cents. I read the whole thread, and I’m surprised that this one wasn’t mentioned:
I have heard educated people misuse “regards”.
As in: “With regards to your problem.....”
Translation: “With best wishes to your problem.
Correction: “With regard to your problem....” or, “regarding your problem....”
The word is best used at the end of a letter or email:
