Random Thoughts: Words I Can’t Handle

We all have words we don’t like. And not just words, phrases and abbreviations as well. We’re just all weird people like that.

“FYI (For Your Information)” doesn’t matter how it’s said, “moist”, and “juicy” top the list of words and phrases that irritate me. “FYI” just sounds snobby to me. I mean there are other ways to inform a person about something without ever having to use “FYI”, but that’s just me. And then “moist” and “juicy” send shivers down my spine. I don’t care if something is legitimately “moist” or “juicy”, those words just shouldn’t be used. I get irrationally irritated by their usage.

And then there are other words, abbreviations, and phrases that irk me:

-Wretching

-Euphemism

-TMI

-IDK

-BRB

-Salivate

-Traverse

-Potty (said to anyone over the age of five)

-Rectum

-Vicissitude

-“Hit me up”

-“If it were a snake it would’ve bit me!”

I’m pretty sure there are more of these that drive me crazy, but these are the things that come to mind…

Y’all the issues are real! But I’m okay with that. We all have words that we hear and it feels like nails on a chalkboard or a gag reflex in the making. That’s just the English language. It’s weird. And I’m pretty sure y’all think I’m weird. But share the words with me that irritate you and I’m pretty sure I’ll be thinking you’re weird too.
