What are some arguments or other things that some people say that just annoy the hell out of you? Here are some of mine that I've heard recently:

"Voting third-party is throwing away your vote."

"How can you stand defending murderers?" (I work for a public defender's office)

"Why don't you make your own sandwich?" Bitch, please.

Any sentence containing the word "literally".

I literally shit my pants out of hatred every time someone uses the word literally.

I'm not mean; I'm real.

What a silly statement. It's one thing to be straight-up, another to be cruel. There have been so many people who have managed to give a long list of terrible insults to people for no reason and insist that they somehow deserve praise because they were being "real."

Haha, yeah, the only literal thing about how it's used colloquially is that it's not used literally.

not even trying to come off as a misogynist over here, but i have never had a bad sandwich made by a lady. a few teetering on mediocre, sure, but we are human above all. sometimes you just overdo it with the vinaigrette. dudes on the other hand have all torn through the bread with an excess amount of peanut butter at some point in their lives. i have.

ON TOPIC:

"that sounds like a bad idea."

maybe, but live a little and take a chance. if you give it a shot and it doesn't work, you tried at the end of the day. improve it for next time.

"I'm just touching base," or any variant thereof used to describe checking in with someone about something. It might not bother me so much if it weren't for the fact that half the people in my office use this several times a day in person, on the phone, and I assume, even in their dreams. It's a small office too and no one ever has their door closed so it's impossible not to hear. Sometimes I think I'm going to punch the next person to tell me they're just touching base with me.

You shouldn't be "touching base" unless you're a baseball player. Just ask me your damn question and go away before I stab myself in the eardrums with a pen.

Top 10 Annoying Statements Pregnant Women Hear

By Psychotic and BoB, Pregnancy.org



It’s bad enough that complete strangers think it’s perfectly okay to violate a pregnant woman’s personal space by touching her belly and providing all kinds of unsolicited advice.





People say the strangest, most annoying, and sometimes downright offensive things – ask any pregnant woman. It’s as if seeing a pregnant tummy makes people rewrite the laws of civilized conversation.





Here are some examples of some of the most annoying things expectant moms hear:





1. “Was this planned?”
Now, maybe it was and maybe it wasn’t, but yes stranger, allow me to tell you about my personal life. What makes the asker think that it’s their business how or why this baby was conceived? How do you answer that? My suggestion: Reply with a smile and ask: “Why do you want to know?”



2. “You look like you’re ready to pop!”
Um, what do you say to that? Thank you? This is an especially nice question if you are only 4 months pregnant. Why doesn’t the person simply cut to the chase and say they think you’re fat?



3. “You don’t want someone else to raise your child, do you?”
This one is amazing. Insult mom’s mothering before the baby is even born. And by all means, make assumptions about why her baby might go to daycare. Perhaps mom has no choice. This also shows ignorance on the part of the person asking about the benefits of daycare.



4. “You’re planning to breastfeed right?”

Once again, last time we checked, this was a personal decision. While breast is certainly best, if, how and why mom is planning to breastfeed is no one’s business but her own. And why on earth would she open herself up to a debate with a complete stranger?



5. “Are you ready to be a parent?”

This question is one which every new mom has probably been asking herself for her entire pregnancy. But I doubt she wants to pour her heart out to a stranger. Besides, whether she answers yes or no, it is sure to invite further questioning.



6. “Do you want a boy or a girl?”

Seriously, does the asker expect to hear anything other than “as long as it’s healthy, I’ll be happy.”?



7. “Get lots of sleep now because you won’t when baby gets here…”

This one qualifies as annoying simply because it is inevitably repeated over and over again by many a person to every pregnant woman on the planet.



8. “You can eat anything you want!”

Does anyone truly believe that? Not only is it seriously unhealthy advice, it, too, is one of those statements that is heard about as often as “See you next year!” on New Year’s Eve. How many times can you smile and fake chuckle?



9. “Aren’t you tired?”

Is that a rhetorical question or do you really want an answer? I’m pregnant, not sick. Sometimes I’m tired, sometimes I’m not.



10. “You sure you’re not pregnant with twins?”

This one is right up there with #2. Thank you for the compliment. Yes, I’m sure. Why don’t you just ask me how much weight I’ve gained and be done with it? Yes, that should be #11, shouldn’t it?







What’s the most annoying thing you’ve heard?

The award for most annoying statement of the week goes to the CBN.The statement goes thus "CBN will spend NGN40.3bn to produce new coins and naira notes".

Oh god, that reminds me how annoying it is when people ask questions like "so when are you getting married and/or have kids?" Or when I say I don't want kids, lots of people look shocked and say things like "you'll change your mind." Apparently everyone is expected to want the same things.

Being an active member of a church (yes, Wesley: shock, horror, etc) a year ago when I was a lot less mature, AND ONLY JUST TURNED 20 BARELY, I would tell people I didn't ever really want to get married. (This has changed.) They'd all say, "Oh, you'll change your mind." And I did. But it's really shitty and it undermines someone as a human being to say that their own opinion about their own life isn't valid, because it's not what society expects.

The terms "going green" or "carbon footprint" drive me up a wall and I've no idea why.

Also annoying: most super-conservative image macros/copypastas that make the rounds on Facebook or that my Grandpa "helpfully" emails me on a weekly basis.

"Mary Sue" - hate that term as a writer, I could fill up a novel with why I hate this term and why everyone misuses it.

Anyways

Re: some of the other things mentioned in this thread:

I just don't use the word "literally" in my writing. Not because I don't know what it actually means, but because I don't want to inadvertently trigger the Grammar Nazis.

Nobody has ever asked me if I'm going to have kids. Actually I get the opposite: people tell me NOT to, which is ironic because I actually do want a kid or two at some point. I think it's because I look like I'm about 17.

Here's some old peeves of mind: I refuse to use the common terms "pro-life" or "pro-choice" with respect to the abortion rights debate. They are emotional propaganda terms that I refuse to use on principle, despite being passionately pro-abortion rights. I'll just say pro/anti-abortion or abortion rights.

An aside back to the sandwich topic. Baby spinach instead of lettuce.


One of the big comments that annoys me is the combinations of, "I don't know how to do (blank). I heard you know, can you help me?"

"No that can't be right. You're way off. Thanks anyway."

So-and-so doesn't "know who they are deep down" and needs to try and figure out their place in the world?

So-and-so is trying to find a reason to keep living because they realized their life sucks and they aren't a good person?

So-and-so has amnesia and is on a quest to discover who they were before the incident?

So-and-so needs to go on some weird path of self-destruction because they have no idea having responsibility is like because So-and-so has the IQ of a toaster and has no value or meaning to his/her life so s/he has to try and do a bunch of random stupid shit that puts him/her in dangerous situations until they get to the point where they realize the people they're hanging around are complete idiots and they decide they want to go on living life because they just don't want to die even though they shouldn't be allowed to because they aren't the kind of person that can realize there are reasons to live that don't involve having to waste years of your life doing that stupid shit and learning how to grow as a person and gain valuable experiences the hard way because they've never heard of philosophy and they think of "learning" as a chore because of the ridiculously inefficient schooling system they grew up with?
