You’ll sometimes hear it among blue collar Londoners too.
As we working class Londoners pronounce the word sandwich as samwidge, there is a greasy spoon in Grays Inn Road, near Kings Cross Station, called Sam Widges.
Nah, your accent (I know, I know, you don't have an accent ) makes everything sound nice. But I draw the line at Italians saying "sangwich."

You must hate me... I say "yum" and "yummy." I sometimes even say "delish."

I know the horse is already out of the barn, so to speak, but it makes me shudder every time I hear an adult refer to vegetables as "veggies". The sammitch thing also bugs me.

I swear I once read a description of a meal which mentioned "A table full of brunchy goodness." Brunchy?
I'm cool with "veggies." I can deal with "OJ." But "PB&J" hurts my ears. And "taters" and "nanners" hurts everything else. (Nanners is my friend's dog, not a yellow food.)

Okay, "brunchy goodness" made me laugh. But just because it's the first time I've seen it. Say it again and I'll have to smack you.

So just what’s wrong with the basics of Peanuts, Bacon, & Jam. PB&J

Yeah, I find "first world problem" an annoying expression/jargon too.

It may be annoying, but it's also pretty accurate.

The whole food forum could be labeled as "first world problems," as can the books forum, the automotive forum, the real estate forum, etc.
