I can't stand the word copious.

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

my friend always says "to be fair though" and "to be honest" it drives me mad, and the worst thing is, i've started using them myself!

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!

So does my OH!! LOL! I cook him a really scrummy meal, with lots of tasty ingredients and lots of effort... and he says 'it was nice'! Arghhh!!! Please say it was delicious, or you enjoyed the spicy flavours, or something... not just nice!!!!!!! :mad:

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!
