Yeah. Agreed there.

Here's one that only a select few will know.

AGRO. Too many of my friends play that game and start using that word.

"I'm living my dream".

Find an infomercial, and the person talking is "living my dream". Watch the Nutrisystem ads, and the new skinny person is "living my dream". Watch the American Express commercial and the girl in the band is "living my dream". Catch an ad for Bowflex and the guy with the rock-star-abs is "living my dream".

"I'm living my dream" is a NIGHTMARE!

Charley, who is NOT living his dream!

The younger generation and their "byotches" or "biatches" because they cannot spell the word correctly??
And using "ho" because they couldn't spell the other word correctly? The proper one that begins with 'wh'. Now we can't even refer to the garden tool which is a hoe without someone saying something stupid about it.

I also hate when people use "blingbling" instead of saying money. I know some people find it cute, but I don't.

LMAO is the most overused abbreviation everywhere online these days. I seriously doubt that all those people are really laughing their asses off all the time. Nobody is that happy.

And the thing that bothers me the most is all the people that do not know what a dictionary is and never use one. Instead they add extra letters to words so the rest of us are always trying to decipher what the heck they are trying to say. They are destroying the english language.

They are "filler" words and time buyers for people with IQs less than 120.

I hated it when people say 'I have to pee'. It is so crass. Why can't people say they need to use the restroom.
Almost as annoying are sales people on infomercials that say 'the product' instead of just saying the name of whatever they are trying to sell.
Any sentence with the word 'pimp' in it or macdaddy (whatever that is).
I'm sick of these combo names they invent for people like, TomKat .

The words, "I have to pee" is considered acceptable language for TV. Amazing
I don't get the "pimp" thing either.
If I ever become famous they'll call me "ZO-BA"

You should watch Judge Judy. She will yell at people who do that! An example:

Judy: Did you pay your rent in March?
Defendant:...um......
Judy: UM IS NOT AN ANSWER!

As a bonus there is a youtube video that has her saying that over and over to different people..check it out
