What Words Or Phrases Make You Immediately Dislike Someone?

Submitted by: fancylad 5 months ago in Lifestyle Misc


Are there certain words or phrases that, when you hear them, immediately make you want to step away from someone?

I have a lot, but right off the top of my head, I hate any actor who says, "on set."

"When Marty Scorsese and I were on set, he gave me this great piece of acting advice."

I rage when it's an actor I think highly of.

When did the word math gain an 's'? ie: I checked the maths. 
And when did we replace "Do you want to come with me?" with the updated "Do you want to come with?'

broizfam It is, and we are, of course, correct. Pet peeves here- I gave, I was given, we give- not gifted- a bastard word from hell. Equally the creeping mispronounciation of the word controversy. It not a backwards poem, two short 'O's - drives me bonkers.

when some liberal spouts the term "common sense gun control" they immediately get on my bad side with an internal label of "GUN GRABBER". Its just a trigger phrase that takes any person who values their 2nd amendment rights and makes them dig in their heels and hate the speaker-- i.e. an instant end to any sort of discussion with them

trimble That's not true, Ronald Reagan fucked the country in 1983.  The money is GONE.  What should have been an account filled with cash is just filled with IOUs now.

Which is not to say that the average person getting a check sees the difference, at least not now, but in 20 years, perhaps that box wont even have IOUs in it.

Where did you think the money for all these silly invasions came from?

"But Hillary" Not because she's great, but because at no point in time was she POTUS nobody says "But Romney/McCain", or "But Gore/Edwards".

In a movie like 2 hour 35 min Star Wars with action, love, betrayal, Jedi, Sith, the force, space, lasers with a huge variety of species, and races among them. Someone's sole takeaway from the movie is there's an Asian woman with some screen time, and sums the movie up as "forced diversity".

TL;DR

"But Hilary"
"Forced Diversity"

I hate the way (many) Americans say "Aussie", it absolutely shits me to tears. Really weird pronunciation. Nobody else in the world seems to do it, regardless of what language they speak.
Same applies for "Melbourne", "Brisbane", and "Edinborough".

woodyville06 Vitriol? "Cruel and bitter criticism" (per Merriam-Webster)? Don't you think that's a little over the top?

I like Butters very much, as he well knows. We've communicated outside of IAB on a number of occasions, usually about topics related to language and music.

I'm just making an observation that if one nationality has a habit of referring to Americans as septic tanks, I'm not sure there's a lot of room for that nationality to be complaining about the American pronunciation of their name. No?

Butters, help me out here. Was that "cruel and bitter criticism"? I hope not. I apologize if you think it was.

kalron27 Star Wars is a space opera (the dialog works more like lyrics than exposition) and was written for kids, younger than 12.

If you put pressure on someone to dislike the prequels, I will remind you the 3 parts you like are about
- 1 family's dysfunctional relationships compounding the political trouble of an entire galaxy
- while 2 old men lie to an orphan teenager, to convince him to kill his own long-lost father
- after he makes out with his own twin sister
- then, cannibalistic stuffed animals defeat a regimen of armored soldiers who are in walking tanks
- at the same time a space station is destroyed by an even bigger flaw than the one someone intentionally designed into the previous iteration of the same model.

While the prequels are political mystery about the transformation of a republic into an empire.

I think there was an emo kid that turns into-
"She's lost the will to live." Why didn't they just say what it-
How did that guy age so much in less than 20 years-
They worked with R2 every day, during the war, and he doesn't recog-
This is dumb.

The character names are adult jokes and puns.
ALL OF STAR WARS IS KINDA' DUMB. IT IS A KIDS SHOW...!!!

A few things not to say to a bouncer:

1. There's a line? But my friends are inside.

(Why didn't you come earlier with them?)

2. Our friend isn't that drunk. We'll take good care of them inside.

(You've done a fantastic job helping them get that way.)

3. But I'm in the military ; I'm a lawyer, etc.

(Thank you. I still have a job to do.)

4. I'm not leaving..you can't make me...don't touch me...I'm calling the cops.

(Congrats, you're only inviting the police to arrest you for trespassing.)

5. You think you're tough?

(What I know, is you're out on the sidewalk now, and I'm going back inside. Good night.)


...I could go on.

Seriously, here's my short list:

  • empowerment or empowering. (Those are two of the most overused words of the past 30 years.)
  • "America is not a democracy!" (Yes it is, doofus: it's simply not a direct democracy. But whoever said it was? I've probably had to debunk this sophomoric statement at least a dozen times on IAB.)
  • "Global warming fanatics insist that all warming of the Earth--everything!--has to be caused by man or it's all a lie!" (I've repeatedly explained how mistaken this assertion is to one particular IAB'er. It's been a complete waste of time. He still regularly says it.)
  • "That looks so classy." (Calling anything classy immediately identifies you as middle class or lower. See Paul Fussell's brilliant book Class: A Guide Through the American Status System (1983) for an explanation, if needed.)

Similarly, how can a government be ruled by both the few (plutocracy) and the many (democracy) at the same time?

dm2754 Your response is muddled; sorry. (Not intending to offend, just being forthright here.) I never stated "there is not a pure democracy" in any of my comments. I don't even know what that statement means, frankly. I suspect you've misinterpreted something I've said.

"Cut it up anyway you want and still call it a democracy." Huh? This makes no sense.

To avoid further confusion, I'll make this as concise as possible. If a government is democratic, it means the will of the people ultimately decides the direction and policies of the nation. If any ruler--a king, a queen, a dictator, what-have-you--or any select group of people can override the will of the people, that government is not democratic. It's that simple.

I don't know of anyone, anywhere, who would argue that North Korea is democratic or even partly democratic, as you seem to be trying to do in this last comment of yours.

dm2754 Mmm. Yes. I totally get that. In fact, in my earlier comments I discussed exactly that. Where you lost me is when you said a country could be both a monarchy and a democracy. It can't; it's one or the other. Either it's a functioning democracy, with a king or queen in a ceremonial role or it's a real monarchy, in which the king or queen has the final say in what the country does or doesn't do and may ignore the will of the people.

dm2754 You seem to be changing your argument.

Your original assertion, which I still disagree with, was that a country could be both a democracy and a plutocracy or a democracy and a monarchy. That's nonsense, for reasons I've already explained.

Your new argument seems to be that a nation can have democratic elements, or democratic trappings, while being a monarchy or a plutocracy. Well, of course that's the case. No duh. I'm sure there were some committees that reported to Adolf Hitler that functioned by majority rule. But that doesn't mean Nazi Germany was a democracy.

daegog I agree with you; it's more a plutocracy or corporatocracy than a democracy at this point. I should have qualified my statement by saying that America is ostensibly a democracy; or rather, a democracy by design and intent.

(Now here we go. Someone's going to respond, "No, it wasn't designed as a democracy! It was designed as a constitutional republic." And then I have to explain the following. A constitutional republic is a KIND of representational democracy. The reason the founders called the nation they created a republic, and not a democracy, is because at the time, representational democracies were virtually unheard of. We were one of the first. The word democracy, for our founding fathers, evoked Athens, a direct democracy, which we are decidedly not. Now I'm going to pray to Heaven that this comment doesn't generate ten new "America is NOT a democracy!" responses. Yet it probably will. *sigh*)

"Proof" or "proves" - It is misused too much, especially when referring to scientific studies. Scientists don't use the word "proof," or prove theories. Instead, their evidence support or reject a theory. 

"Truth" - When I hear this, I immediately start looking for bullshit or a subjective belief.

DuckBoy87 I'm up in Connecticut for the holidays, and I have been listening to an AM radio announcer here the past two days. The man has clearly made an effort to sound as much like Howard Stern as possible, which is a little off, but I can accept that. What I can't abide, however, is how many times this guy says "Y'know?" when talking. I counted as many as five y'knows in one sentence and that is not an exaggeration.

Example: "So, it's like, y'know, this--y'know--this guy came up to me on the street and he--y'know, this is in broad--broad, like y'know--broad daylight--and he is wearing, like, y'know, pajamas!"

I am seriously considering giving the radio station a call to complain. It is maddening to listen to and it feels like a defilement of the public airwaves to have someone blathering like that all day long. Y'know?

daegog I am going to respectfully disagree. In the past, Marijuana and its medicinal properties have been unfairly slandered. That is why it was shelved for so long as a schedule 1 drug. 

Marijuana is a plant much like thousands of other medicinal plants (willow bark, foxglove, countless species of amazon rain forest flora). Medicine extracted from these plants is tested dosed and packaged for safe use according to current best knowledge as administered by doctors. 

Recreational use is a different argument ENTIRELY. That is a societal standard like alcohol, opioids or tobacco. It balances use versus cost on a micro and macro psychosocial scale. The recreational argument considers consumption of the whole plant in an unregulated manner. Good medicine should never have that.

Therefore, conflating self-dosing with medicinal use is unwise. I assume you don't chew on willow bark to cure your headaches (you take aspirin) or swallow some foxglove when your heart is bothering you (you take the digoxin).

toetagmodel2 Marijuana was declared a schedule 1 drug in an attempt to stop the growing of Hemp by the cotton industry. Since they are both part of the cannabis family, they were lumped together as the same plant even though Hemp is completely different. Hemp has nearly no THC, but Marijuana contains quite a lot so.. OOoooo! boogeyman pot!

squidbush You are correct. And it is well known that Schedule 1 drugs require an act of God to research, but it seems the floodgates of medicinal marijuana derivatives have opened in the last few decades.

Maybe someday we will use Peyote derivatives to treat diseases.

daegog you sound like a marijuana cultist. Which is no difference in a religious bible thumper. If it actually had medical uses it would have been approved a hundred years ago. 
If you enjoy getting high go ahead and enjoy yourself. I just don't see why potheads need to justify their addiction. Alcoholics don't constantly go on and on about the health benefits.

My brother is a pothead his son has severe autism and has seizures. My brother likes to believe that the cannabis oil helps his son and not all the other medication that is some takes. Yet for some reason he keeps giving his son there a traditional medicine.

dm2754 I have personally seen CBD oil reduce seizures dramatically, and its usefulness is supported by research. It does not work every time, but has its place in the MD handbag. It also does not produce the effects that THC does and is regulated very differently. 

But this information has nothing to do with Marijuana being legal recreationally...

dm2754 and i have seen people die after chemotherapy from cancer, your point is meaningless.

How old are you guys that hate pot so much?  I expect it from people in their 60s, they are too old to know better.

daegog you were only being meaningless ask my argument was chemotherapy cures cancer which it's not. But if you want to go there yes some people have actually been cured of cancer by use of chemotherapy. No one in the history of mankind has ever been cured of cancer using marijuana or any of it extracts.

Now you can believe whatever you want to believe. Unfortunately science doesn't care about your belief.
I challenge anyone to provide a peer-reviewed scientific paper on any medical benefit of marijuana. (If you link an article that's purely antidotal you've proved my point)

How about 41 peer-reviewed papers that found marijuana helpful in treating a variety of diseases and conditions, including glaucoma, chronic pain, and Parkinson's? LINK

dm2754 I'm not sure what you were expecting. Most peer-reviewed medical journals are behind a paywall. You can buy a year's subscription for unlimited access or buy an individual article from a given volume. That's just the way it works.

The link I provided has a list of 41 peer-reviewed papers with favorable findings for the use of marijuana in treating disease. The articles are summarized and then the information needed to get the article is listed. From there, it's up to you.

Let's take the first pro-marijuana study listed for treating Parkinson's disease. Here's the name of the study and the publication info:

Lotan, Itan. "Cannabis (Medical Marijuana) Treatment for Motor and Non–Motor Symptoms of Parkinson Disease: An Open-Label Observational Study." Clinical Neuropharmacology, Mar/Apr 2014.

Using that info, I found the article in the journal above. A summary of the article (the abstract) is provided and a button at the top of the page allows you to purchase the article if you want.

Hope this helps.

squrlz4ever yes, paper looking for an article looking for actual paper. A lot of resources do you hide their research behind a paywall primarily to keep anyone from disputing their findings as being false.
The problem with articles is there laced with opinion not facts.
It would be very easy to provide anyone with a paper that says aspirin works.
There was a study that they talked about inside a predominant gay newspaper that claims marijuana causes homosexuality.
Now are you going to accept that as true just because I can link the article or do you want to see the actual study.
There's also a peer-reviewed paper out there that talks about how smoking marijuana reduces penis size. Again are you going to accept that on faith or do you want to read the actual paper.

dm2754 I disagree with most of what you're saying in this last comment.

No, scholarly, peer-reviewed journals do not "hide their articles behind a paywall" to prevent them from being disputed. That's a ridiculous statement. Producing peer-reviewed journals takes editors, time, and money. Journals cover their operating costs by charging subscriptions, most of which are paid by libraries, institutions of higher learning, and medical schools. Virtually anyone doing research in a field covered by a peer-reviewed journal has access to that journal through their work or academic role.

You do not seem well-informed about research in the medical applications of marijuana nor do you seem to have a good understanding of how medical research, in general, is conducted, reviewed, and published. (I used to do copyediting for a medical publisher in Philadelphia; most of the time, the text I was editing was written by doctors and/or medical researchers.)

You issued a "challenge" (your word) to anyone to find a peer-reviewed article that found evidence supporting the medical use of marijuana. I found 41. Done.

squrlz4ever Marijuana derivatives are useful both as evidenced by research studies as well as anecdotal personal experience. Marinol is useful to encourage appetite and reduce cancer related sequelae. CBD oil is useful to treat seizures and several other neurological conditions.

But it is one thing to say that Marijuana can be used as medicine and an entirely different thing to say that it should be allowed as a recreational experience. One is for science to decide, the other is for society to determine.

In business: Bullshit jargon.  ie. "synergy," "touch base," "retool."   I immediately think they're full of shit, a moron, or they remind me of Mr. Cheezle from Grandma's Boy (which is both).

Social: SJWisms.  ie. "manplaining," "manspreading," "microaggressions," "intersectionality," the ever-growing list of "genders," etc.  Fuck you and your degree that isn't worth shit.

Beaverfever Synergy I abhor.

Another is 'Root Cause', not because of the actual phrase, but of its use.  Take finding the 'root cause' of a workplace injury. The most likely 'root cause' is the injured was an idiot who did something stupid. But management will 'root cause' it all the way back to 'well, we're a plant that makes things.'

I broke my little finger when grabbing a handrail tripping down a high stair. The grab saved me from faceplanting onto the concrete 15 feet below. All things considered I was quite alright with the broke pinkie.  But the 'root cause' investigation was hell.  Actual question asked: "How can we get workers to 'think differently' when using stairs?"   I don't know. Maybe build the entire plant at ground level???

megrendel  In our warehouse they have stenciled on the stairs, " THREE POINTS OF CONTACT."  Like you said. Hold the fucking hand rail and save a face plant. As an aside, did you know the 90% of people only touch the first and last 18" of a hand rail? I've found that over the years it makes it a great place to park an unwanted booger.

I link "boss" with prison because that's where it comes from. They
have to get permission for everything so it's "going to toilet Boss"
"need to do this Boss" "want to do that Boss"
And then wannabee's adopt it wanting to have more street cred than they do

Gerry1of1 You're actually correct. Boss was coined in the prison system to refer to the guards (now called 'corrections officers'). It actually is an acronym for "Big Old Sack of $h*t".
