    I can't stand the word copious.

    I think it's because my biology teacher used to say 'copious amounts of mucus' too often

    Nice!

    If you're going to describe something, please think of a more interesting adjective than nice - grrrrrrrrrr! (Think that comes from the teacher in me!)

    And the other one... it's not a word exactly, but the incorrect use of words or grammar, e.g. We was going to the shops. No, you WERE going to the shops!!!!! Grrrrr again!!!

    Where do I start? Obese, FRUMPY! plump, and duck! Don't get me wrong I love the feathered kind, but when we moved to Staffordshire I hated being called "Duck" but after 12 years there I use it myself!

    I was just about to say 'nice'!! An old teacher of mine always used to say nice wasn't a word!
    My hubby uses it all the time-it drives me wild!!!

    My real pet hate is when people say "I gave 110%"

    YOU CANNOT GIVE MORE THAN 100%!!!

    It winds me up more than anything I know. 100% is the maximum, it is a whole, the most you can have or give so why oh why do people insist they gave or can give more?!

    I will now step away from the soap box...

    A gardening presenter on radio Humberside repeats "and such like" about 20 times an hour I end up shouting at the radio!
