What word do you hate? I mean like the way it sounds or the way it looks spelled out?

I know it sounds weird but some words just... bother me. LoL.

For example, I just posted the question "Who else thinks TV remotes should have pager buttons like cordless phones do?" and I almost DIDN'T post the question b/c I suddenly realized how weird the word "remote" sounded and looked. lmao. Sometimes this happens if I think, say, write, or type the SAME word too many times in a row. Like, if I just said it once or twice I wouldn't even think about it. But once it starts being repeated in my head over and over, it starts sounding strange.

So, what words sound weird to you? LoL

  • I also agree with Shay. I had this patient the other day and his daughter kept calling him 'father'...creepy. The word that drives me crazy the most is...panties.

  • None that I see.. Hear, any words that come out of Angela Landsberry's mouth. Her voice bounces on my very last nerve for some reason.
