    Guys

    Why can't i say guys/dudes? I have a workmate(guy) that calls me doll or honey & don't care.

    What's wrong with saying *****?

    I find it annoying when people get countables & non countables incorrect. My former manager would say " there are some fruit over there" ARGHHHHHHHHH

    What really bothers me is when someone says

    Oh, my God!!

    It even bothers me when it's OMG and OMFG!

    It really is just disrespectful all the way around.

    I say "oh my god" all the time. It's MY god, right? (Notice small g here). She doesn't seem to mind.

    I hate stay-cation. I don't mind invented words as long as they're not used seriously, or in a "trendy" manner. And I absolutely hate when the press latches on to a specific word or pronunciation of a word and uses it over and over.

    Seriously, I never heard staycation until about 2 days ago. I've heard it endlessly since then. Crazy!

    If you're talking a cat about it's fine.

    If you're talking about a female or female anatomy it has some derogatory connotations.

    Just heard two of my pet peeves on the "coming up on Project Runway":

    "ginormous"

    and

    "didn't" pronounced "di-nt".

    I also hate "whatever!" when used by someone who is pissed off....

    I'm guilty of both ginormous and whatever.

    CC- Umm - this must be a U.S. thing, but to answer your question, it's a female anatomy reference, generally intended in the dirtiest of ways. That is what is wrong with it. Wow - will I ever be embarrassed when you all come back and tell me I'm wrong!

    I'm afraid I use "guys" to refer to just about everyone. It just feels so nice and casual, and as close to unisex as I can find. However, I DETEST "doll", and if you are going to call me honey or hon (hun?), you'd better be my mom or my DH. Actually, I take that back - there are a tiny handful of people out there who could call me that and it would be okay, because they would be using it sarcastically, and we'd both know it wasn't some sort of empty show of fake affection.

    I have far too many pet peeve words to even try to list any. I guess irregardless is at the top of the pile. Oh, and when Office Max or somebody was running an ad where they used office as a verb (I think it was "The new way to office", or something equally horrific), I truly wanted to shoot the tv.

    I thought he got it from his mother, who is a redneck (the nicest kind) from rural Florida. But his DAD is from MICHIGAN! Maybe that's where SHE got it!

    Forte.

    If you don't know how to pronounce it correctly you ought to simply say that something is not one of your strengths.

    I'm from Chicago. I use "guys" to refer to everyone, even little action figures.

    I do NOT like the p-word. I greatly prefer "girly-bits" in the context of this forum--at some point the right words will trigger the filters. I think it's best that we don't use words that would have the perverts coming in because they searched the proper words.

    There's a mixed up word Bush used that I very nearly can't avoid saying as if it were real: misunderestimated. It's ALMOST right!

    OMG!*

    As in "Oh my goodness" or "Oh my gosh!"

    That "G" can be very diverse.
