I know there's no such word. But try telling that to my junior tech. I'm sick of the sound if it.
I hate envisage
we had one company who would always use it in there letters etc
printer, as in the printer is out of paper
-well why don't you put some in it then? :mad:
This may be an Australian thing only but I hate "youse" It's just lazy speech. Especially when you walk into a shop and the attendant says "Can I help youse?" Most of the time I walk out then.
ASAP (especially when said as a word, i.e. "aye-sap"), not because I hate a rush but because people mistakenly think it means "now" or "urgently". If it isn't possible until two weeks next Thursday, that is still As Soon As Possible.
Similarly, the confusion between "frequent" and "regular" bugs me sometimes. Sometimes which happens once every 400 years is regular, but not frequent; something which happens every 5-10 minutes is frequent but not regular; something which happens every 5 minutes is both frequent and regular.
I hate the word "need" every time a request comes in from a teacher whether it be on the helpdesk or in person they always use the phrase "I need!!!" with the emphasis on "need" which they feel will help them get their own personal way, a little like "spoilt brat" syndrome.
When I hear this it just makes me cringe and think of a little 5 year old child jumping up and down in a tantrum demanding attention. :( :( :(
Have you got a minute ( Yes I know thats not a word - more a phrase thats commonly used but ah well )
+1 on the Debt thing
+1 On printers ( especially when they try and put labels or OHP plastic stuff through and it gets melted onto the drum or inside the printer and renders it useless )
@ Simon its crocodile not crocadile
Any of the words that are screeched in a tone only bats can understand by girls who have eaten to much sugar, and even more so when fully grown adults have the same fits mid conversation.
oh and people who say out loud
(personally don't minds f.f.s. as some times its more appropriate than swearing out loud)
