here we go:

"I'm in way over my head" - WHAT THE **** IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? what,is their a movie called "way over my head",or something? this phrase just sounds stupid.no matter what. why can't you just say "I'm way over my head"

"Swag" - next time someone says that I will knock them the **** out. most rap these days is crappy soulja boy ringtone Rap with repeated song titles for lyrics,autotoned vocals,and computerized beats instead of samples....oh,and half of the lyrics consist of "swaggy swag swag swaggity swag swag swag". but anyway I hate that phrase

    I hate any phrase that includes "Epic"

    And "party like a rock star"

    And "that's what she said"

    Way over my head = you missed something, like a joke, because you were unable to comprehend it.

    In way over my head = you're metaphorically drowning in the sheer amount of things around you.


    That's why you don't just say 'I'm way over my head'. Because it means something entirely different. I don't say I ride a bike to work when I actually take a car.

    When I read the OP, I thought to myself "he kinda missed it there, but I'm sure GNF will come along and enlighten him"

    Thanks for not disappointing me buddy!

    You realize that one word does not constitute a phrase, right?

    "I could care less." - It's one thing when people bastardize a idiom here or there, but people say this one when they mean the complete opposite. Drives me nuts.

    Supper means 'large meal'. My friend's family uses it to refer to their noon meal, usually.

    Again, you've run into that pesky problem of what people use and what you think it should be being two completely different things.

    well,now I hate the misuse of Supper,'cause people use it when it's just a normal dinner,nothing special,with a small amount of food

    Good lord...

    Supper can refer to the last meal of the day. Hell, took a quick visit to Wikipedia, and
    supper [can be] used to describe a less formal, simpler family meal
    and
    In...most parts of The United States and Canada, "supper" and "dinner" are considered synonyms
    which is EXACTLY what you're trying to say you 'hate' now(which is hilarious since you were the exact same way ten seconds before typing that).

    Anyone who uses that phrase should be publicly executed.

    "Touch base." If people weren't so damn busy "touching base" all the time, they might get a lot more done.

    Also anything about "creative juices." If you've got something to show me, then show me already. I don't care about your juices or whatever you plan to do to get them flowing or whatever.

    I hate the term "Winning"

    I HATE the phrase "I am dissapoint" like most things on the internet it got really old really fast and hasn't been funny since about 5 minutes after it was started.

    also (although they are words and not phrases) I HATE the words "noob" and "pown" and any use of "leet speak". Or is it "1337 5p34k"?

    My creative juices only get flowing if I've been touching base too much.

    "That's how I roll" is now past it's expiration date.

    When I hear somebody use it, I have the urge to push them really hard so that they fall down and roll around on the floor while I shout "No, that's how you roll!"

    I think that one's so long since dead that it's OK to use if attempting tongue-in-cheek kitschiness.

    using the word "well" instead of "really" or "very"
    As in
    "That's well good" or
    "That's well difficult"

    people who accomplish something, even something thats pretty simple like putting a kettle on for a hot drink and then say
    "Jobs a good 'un" (jobs a good one) << that really naffs me off.

    And not so much the phrase - but when somebody's voice goes up at the end of a statement, and makes them sound like they are always asking questions. Like one of my bike pupils
    "What make of bike have you got?"
    "It's, like, a Honda (?)" ("like" gets on my **** too)
    "Are you asking me, or telling me?"

    As a poet and writer I heartily dislike the slang used in this particular
    generation to the point where I had to purchase a recreational punching bag
    to pummel whenever someone uttered the following in my presence:

    "Epic Fail," "Pwned," "Noob," "Whatever," "Whambulance,"
    and "Go Die In a Fire."

    I also believe that "L33t" or Leet vocabulary is the most fundamentally
    backwards form of communication on the planet and that contrary
    to what some people might think, sending text messages using vague
    letters and numbers DOES NOT increase one's memory or intelligence,
    which is the argument a friend of mine insinuated.
