What phrases/sayings do you find annoying?

I dislike the phrase "must win" esp since it's usually used with sporting events.  Yes, the team usually needs to win if they want to achieve their ultimate goal.  But life as we know it won't be at all different if they don't.

D-Day was a Must Win. No sporting event is a must win.

What do you dislike hearing?

Dude.
Especially when parents use it to their children. You can't (Imo) command respect from a child when using Dude.

My sil uses it non stop " dude stop fighting, don't hit your sister"


Ugh.

Adorbs really just sounds like you're too lazy to say adorable.

The whole YOLO thing bugs me - it strikes me as an excuse to do dumb stuff.

I definitely agree with the context you give.  I think its sweet when a parent refers to a toddler (who is behaving) as their little dude.  But yes, hard to imagine a child taking you seriously if you call them dude when trying to discipline.

Anyway, yeah. I really can't think of anything that annoys me more than that. Except swag, maybe.

Y'all is a regional thing.

If you hate it stay away from the south!
