Words that should never be used. by Ellerd on 18 January 2007 4:23am
 
"Fave" as in: "That's my fave movie." Ugh...

Feel free to add your most unliked word!

George Carlin's 7 bad words that should never be used on television:

****, ****, ****, ****, ****-******, ******-******, and ***!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Free" when used in advertising, NOTHING is free.

SHOULD is a word that should never be used. Seriously.

Awww! Fave is my fave word !!! *snigger*

I hate words which decribe bodily excretions as a swear word - if you see what I mean. C**p, s**t etc to me are a thousand times worse than f**k etc, though I don't use either (well, ok, rarely!!)

For some reason I also detest the word 'breast'. This is not because I am prudish in any way and I don't mind the word boob or whatever (though bust I hate too!). I also have no issues about my own boobs. It's just the word - not what it means!

'Babe' as used in this way - 'Hi Babe' 'You look good in that babe', etc. [Not as in Babe the pig]. Spoken to another girl or to boyfriend/husband. Yuk.

Something else that makes me cringe, though I know it is usually said to be friendly, is when shop assistants call me Duck(y) or Love or whatever the local thing is. They don't know me from Adam (or even Eve)!!! On the other hand I quite like the 'Have a Nice Day' American thing.

"Whatever!". It's such a lazy reply/retort. There should be a tax on its usage.

Words that should never be used. Like as and you know as filler words.
