Aarrghh!!! Words You Wish No One Would EVER Say Again
Whatever. Selfie. OMG. So,Like. Killer. First Class - Just a few of the IRRITATING words we want banished forever!
We use so many useless words and phrases everyday. They’re irritating but we can’t seem to communicate without them. Like, you know what I mean?
Aren’t you just irritated hearing people use these two words when they don’t much to say? But ‘so like’ has seeped into every part of life. From bored teachers in class, to your super-chatty gal-pals on the phone... they all use it.
Even Aishwarya Rai uses it. So like, we say, time to get over it.
Are You Kidding Me?!
Now which movie did this come from? We don’t know but for years it’s been out there bugging us. Even Macaulay Culkin’s horrified expression in Home Alone I can’t match up to the sheer (irritating) uselessness of this phrase.
Let’s Take A Selfie Naaa!
When selfie was declared the word of the year in 2013, we thought it was cute. And when Ellen Degeneres took that Oscar picture we liked it even more. Until we started taking selfies by the hundreds. And everyone else started doing the same. Sitting, standing, waking, doing nothing, anything - we selfie and share all the damn time. STOP!
Even Kim Kardashian’s epic selfies don’t make us like the word any more.
Oh My God!!!
Oh My God was already a favourite expression. Until the advent of OMG. Now everybody, even your aunt’s uncle, has started using it. It’s now a bit like when Janice from Friends says it, and you feel the rage welling up inside you.
‘Oh dude, that’s killer yaar.’ How many times have you heard that, usually from your clueless and limited classmate? Seriously man, stop it. You make us feel like the murderous doll Chucky from Child’s Play.
You Know What I Mean?
Huh, what? No. We don’t know what you mean and frankly no one gives a damn. Stop using this sentence just because you fail to explain what you are trying to say. Every. Single. Time .
First class is now déclassé. Only nobody’s got the memo yet. Time to shake it off your vocabulary, just like Kareena Kapoor shed those extra grams to reach size zero.
