    Excessive profanity because it shows a lack of intelligence and limited vocabulary to express any deep thoughts.

    I haven't seen this posted yet.

    "and go" when a general question is asked to solicit answers in a large FB group.

    Happy holidays. It's Merry Christmas. MERRY FKN CHRISTMAS

    I say Merry Christmas, too & recently have gotten silence in return a couple of times. Oh, no... the horror that wishing someone a happy or merry anything can be taken as offense in these PC times is a bit silly.

    If someone wished me a Happy Chanaukah, I'd just say it in return... no need to jump up & down, screaming that I don't follow that religion. Be happy anyway!

    Merry Christmas!

    “If it fits your macro”

    “What are your goals”

    “I’m on a keto diet”

    “What is your kik”

    "Just saying"

    I always want to hit anyone that says this.

    Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?

    Why buy the pig when you can get the sausage for free?

    This is probably a common one, but “I could care less” gets under my skin.

    I also cringe when I hear people use babyish words, for example saying baggie or bootie instead of bag or boot.

    When the outgoing message says “I’ll get back to you at my earliest convenience”. Really? So, you’ll get back to me when it’s convenient for you? Lol They are either extremely honest or confused. lol.

    Yesterday, I was forced to endure a 2 hour conference call with a presenter that ended every sentence with "right?"

    Certainly you've heard this before...right?
    Whenever someone is...like...trying to make a point...right?
    Every single statement suddenly becomes a question...right?
    It gets to the point...right?...where you don't even notice the other words because all you hear is right...right?
    So you're just staring out the window...right?
    You're thinking the only way to relieve this agony is to hurl yourself through the glass...right?
    But then you glance at the clock...right?
    And...like...it's almost lunch time...right?
    So, you decide to tough it out for just a few more minutes...right?
    You think of all of the motivational phrases you've read on MFP...right?
    Take a deep breath...focus...you're almost there...right?
    Finally, the presentation ends...right?
    The speaker asks if there are any questions...right?
    Some idiot at the other end of the table...right?...makes a comment about the presentation and the speaker replies, "That's right!"
    At this point, in a desperate effort to save what’s left of your sanity...right?...you just get up and leave the room.

    Am I right?

    You definitely are right. But...I hear “you know?” a ton too.
    I went into the store, you know, to grab some milk. And, it was so busy in there because of Christmas, you know, but I got in and out quickly.

    Is that regional? Do other places say that a ridiculous amount?

    Having lived in huge cities in 16 states, 7 countries, 4 continents, I've encountered everything. I can deal with varying accents, broken English (or other languages), awful grammar, regional slang... but, mumbling, soft spoken-ness to the point of having to ask "What? What?" over & over or incomplete thoughts (the say nothing "blah, blah, blah" or "know I'm sayin'" types) that just leave me asking constant "I'm sorry, what do you mean?" type q's make me quickly lose my patience. If it's an effort to speak to/understand another, I'm now old enough that I give up & walk away rather than entertain poor communication skills.

    People who speak too loudly, barreling loudly over others & continually interrupting are the most difficult for me to be around... stop shouting at me, for the love of Valhalla, I can bloody well hear you! And, let others speak... you are an exhausting human.
