Does anyone have any words that just bug them when people misuse them? I am not trying to sound like a snob, I am just trying to get some examples for a lesson I am teaching called "say what you mean".

A few examples for me:

Random- People say "I saw the most random thing today, a bear riding a unicycle juggling." That's not random. Someone obviously planned that, and did some obvious training. Spouting off numbers like 2 6 7 3 7 33 79 is random, because its unplanned.

Love- I love facebook, i love my truck, I love xbox, I love my mom. This word is so abused because you should not be able to express the emotion you have for your mom with the same one express for something inanimate.

and my last one

Awesome- awesome means leaving you awestruck, or leaving you lost for words. something being awesome is possible, but I dont think it happens as nearly often as we say it.

Let me tell you what is not epic. Your ****ing shoes. Your shoes are not epic, nor will they ever be epic. Save the word epic for shit that is actually epic.

I haven't heard the phrase "that's so random" for at least a couple of months now, and it makes me very happy. Makes me want to say EVERYTHING IS RANDOM, YOU FUCKING IGNORAMUS when I hear it.

And I'm not abusing "fuck" in that sentence here.

If I say fuck two more times, that's forty-six fucks in this fucked up rhyme.

No words in particular. When someone uses a "big" word to try to sound smart, but uses it incorrectly, it is always a time of laughter.

Fail.
Epic Fail.

I find it weird when people say something is a fail. Don't they mean to say failure?
#22
Literally. People have no idea what this word even means anymore, they'll say things such as "That is literally the funniest thing I have ever heard" and it just bugs the hell out of me.

Also not really an annoyance but when people say something is intense I immediately think of festivals such as Glastonbury and always think about what they're saying but I imagine it inside a tent. In-tents.

"That's so fail."

Overusing "like" as filler also kills conversation. Can't stand that shit.

epic
fail
brutal/heavy
-sauce (when used like: [adjective]sauce, for example: awesomesauce)
cool beans (huh?)
baby (I hate being called baby by women "hey baby how are you today?" NOOO)

when people sound out acronyms. (lulz mostly)

Also if I've known somebody for a long time I pick on speech tics they have. Specific phrases or words they always say at certain times. Depending on the person, it can annoy me. Also when you have a close group of friends and the rest of them start to catch onto that same speech tic unconsciously. ahhh!

I've never heard the word big used to make anything seem more significant, maybe it's just where I'm from
Woah bro, those shoes are big!
Fuck you, they're only a size 10

That's how I picture a situation when anyone uses the word big.
