I was tagged a while back by Europafox to list 5 words of my least favorite words. It took me awhile to come up with this. I tag anyone who wants to play!
X-mas – I just think it’s lazy to use this.
Subjugate – I hate it when people use this word because they always seem to use it incorrectly. They think they know what it means and that it makes them sound smart (because they are using a big word), but you don’t sound smart if you are using it improperly!
Rectory – I’m Catholic, but I hate this word. It sounds dirty.
Cheers – Unless you are British or you are actually toasting someone with a glass, I don’t like it when people use this as a closing. To my girls on the other side of the pond – does it annoy you when Americans use this?
The C-word and P-word – no further explanation necessary.
