Are there little phrases people say that just erk you?

I hate the term "man-up", as though every man is supposed to be the same and show no emotion at all and never be bothered by anything. Its a very caveman-ish way of thinking to me. Sexist too.

What other terms are out there that you dislike?

  • Maybe, but it just sounds a little rude to me. I don't think there's any intentional rudeness behind it most of the time, but again, I just find it dismissive, like "yeah, okay, shut up now".

  • I hate when people say "Gotcha" when you're talking to them....there's just something very dismissive about it.
