  • "Loose" when they mean "lose."
    Anything other than "pregnant": prego, preggers, pergnante, etc.
    Silly expressions that are supposed to mean "period" or "sex." This is a site for people who have had both of those; there's no need to pussyfoot around it—oh, and cutesy words for genitals, too, especially "va-jay-jay."
    "The lord works in mysterious ways." That's my all-time most despised thing anyone ever says.

  • The two terms you just mentioned! I hate them! My family and I might utter the term "baby daddy" when we are joking around but we would never use it seriously. Using the word seen when it should be saw. I know that makes me sound uptight but I have a cousin who is constantly saying "I seen.." and I am silently saying to myself "You SAW, SAW..." Another cousin says "I had boughten it at the store." Boughten?

  • How can someone vote down an OPINION? So what if you like some of those terms!

  • I agree with most of the ones mentioned thus far...I will add "aks" as in "I wanna aks you something" and "prolly" typed for "probably". Sorry if someone else already said those and I missed them.
