Expressions that should get you punched if you use them

What expressions/phrases/words annoy the hell out of you when you hear them?

People who say something is awesome or amazing tend to call anything and everthing awesome or amazing so they most definitely deserve to get punched.

"When you point a finger ..three are pointed back at you"

"God never gives us more than we can handle"

"Anywhoo"

"Oh, SNAP!"

"It takes a village"

"Never assume. It makes an ass out of u & me."

"Everything happens for a reason"

"I gave it 110 percent!"

"I crack myself up!"

"I'm not here to make friends."

"Love the sinner hate the sin"


What else?

"Sweet!" It just sounds stupid. (And how come nobody says "swell" anymore?)

Saying something good is "the shit". If you're going to call something that, it should be for something you don't like.

Word.

conversely, one expression I love, and use all the time, is "No worries"

Anything said with a sense of smugness, snarkiness, or irony. [/somehow too subtle for TGM]

Re: Expressions that should get you punched if you use them

"Wow. Just... wow." : I hate this more than anything.

"Lawl" : People that spell out the whole laugh out loud thing.

"Hella" : Stupid NoCal saying.

"Congo rats" : As opposed to congrats.

"Whatevs" : Whatever, learn to spell.

"UR, ur" : Is it so hard to type out "you're" or "you are?"

as an aside, my wife and i did our honeymoon in australia/new zealand back towards the end of 2007. prior to that, i'd never really heard anyone say "no worries" in the states. over there, everyone used it. we started using it in our lexicon and now i hear everyone saying it.

"like"

"um"

There you go. I just made every teenager's brain crash in a matter of minutes by taking these words away.

I thought it seemed like a lot of people started saying that (at least around here) when the Crocodile Hunter was popular.

oh and...

"I know, right?!?"

I use most of these expressions when chatting with friends. Talking in real life, not so much.

Agree with "oh snap!" and "wow, just wow"

The one that really annoys the hell out of me is "I dunno"
