I hate when people say they're giving any more than 100%. Like, "I'm gonna give it 110%!" I know their intentions, but.... it only goes up to 100%! Once you cross that line, open that barrier, where does the scale ever end? It's ridiculous.

Or when people on competition shows go "I REALLY want to win. I want to win more than anything. I REALLY REAAAALLY WANT TO WIN." Yes. That's cool. The other 11 people on the show with you want to win too. Didn't you notice?

Just. Once. Justonce do I need someone to go on a show like that and get in the camera and say, "Yeah I don't really care if I win. I'm kind of along for the ride.. I actually followed some chick with jello shots. I'm not entirely sure how I got here. Where am I?"

"I have a right to free speech."

Atleast when used after someone has called them out on their BS or even merely disagreed with them. They seem to think the right to free speech allows them to say whatever they want without a bad response.

'Deliciousness'.

I don't know, it just bugs me. I keep hearing it on cooking channels and stuff, and it makes me wonder, 'is that even a real word??' Oo

"Not Guilty"

I read the news about beatings, shootings, murders, etc. that happen everyday, and when they are caught and brought before a judge, they plead.. "not guilty."

You did the crime, the evidence is stacked against you, and yet you have the nerve to plead that you didn't do it.. That's just something I'm sick of hearing coming from these suspects and their $$-grubbing lawyers.

I don't necessarily hate it, but I say these two things a lot and I can't stop and I wish I could.

"Legit," and, "Not gonna lie." I've gotten better with, "legit," though. I don't say it nearly as often anymore.

Edit:

ugh, I cannot STAND the misuses of the word 'Literally'....! It's fine if you're using it right but.... come on...

I was watching one of those shows about messy houses and the idiot ditsy host said "Oh my GOD! you are LITERALLY drowing in MAIL!" and i felt like through a shoe at the tv. SHE IS NOT LITERALLY DROWING IN MAIL YOU STUPID IDIOT!

also in another show, someone did like 5 loads of laundry and said "I have literally washed the past out of me!"
er. no you havent.

People who throw non-english words in their day to day English. Especially uncommon languages like Japanese and and stuff like that.

I got this all the time in college from douchey know-it-all jerk-offs "Americans are all stupid, I'm going to move to France!" Yeah? Then go. PLEASE just go. If you hate America and Americans so much, please, stop taking advantage of our education system, pack your bags, and go. You're an adult. Leave and spare me the smug, self-important bullshit. You clearly can't stand this country or the people in it, so if we're all dumb rednecks and you hate us all, you should be willing to do whatever it takes to get out. Surely, they will welcome your hippie ass with open arms and you can complete your education there.

Also? This exchange. "You use a Dell?" "Yes. " "Why?" I dunno, maybe because I don't want to look like a douchebag like you, obnoxious hipster wannabe.

...English is built on foreign lonewords though (indeed many historical campaigns to "purge" the English language of foreign words have fallen flat on their face when such movements have the loanwords in their manifesto pointed out).

Also, I don't use a Dell. I use a PC I put together myself and paid a fraction of the price for what I'd have done for a PAC with the same specs. from Dell. Does that make me an obnoxious hipster wannabe?

"Epic."

Not everything is "epic."
And the more times you say it, the less it means. Stop!
