"Cute".
When used to describe practically everything. Can people seriously not get a better vocabulary to use something like, I dunno, pretty, or cool, or nice, or sweet, or colourful? Something OTHER than cute? UGH. At work once, I had two girls who were shopping for rings, and literally EVERYTHING they checked out got a "Oh, cute" reaction. Pfff, when I show you an expensive amethyst ring set in silver with intricate patterning on the band and a large pendant to match that screams "old-style classy", not "cutsey costume jewellery", wtf is in your head that makes you think it's "Cute" like the sparkly cheap ring with a cat on it that you just called cute ten seconds ago?...
