List #6 - My Least Favorite Words & Phrases

Well, I skipped List #5. Saving it for later this week, and you will see why then.  ;)  Today's list is my least favorite words and phrases...

  • "Nom, nom, nom"- I apologize, but this so irks me.  Who actually makes that sounds when they eat anyways??
  • spontaneous abortion - I am loathing this word more and more. I just hate that the they use the word abortion in the medical term for a type of miscarriage.
  • "See You Next Tuesday" - I hope I don't need to explain that one without actually typing out THE WORD.
  • homophobes - This one bugs me because you are describing ignorant or hateful people as having a phobia?? No, they do not have a phobic condition. They have a closed mind condition.  A judgmental condition.  Not a phobia.
  • Stage 5 Clinger - Hate. this. term. Don't care who it is directed to, but it is usually uttered out of the mouth of someone who has trouble committing.
  • "It's part of God's plan." - Maybe your God's plan, but not MY God's plan.
  • "Winning!" - This is one that has come to bear my hate recently, and needs no further explanation.
  • Can't
  • Anxiety - Has plagued me for years. The worst is when "attack" comes after that word.
  • Fetal demise - Again another cold, clinical medical term I would like to NEVER hear again.
  • Hopeless - Nothing is ever hopeless, and I hate when people say that.
