    Default Vexing Words

    Do you have a word or words that get on your nerves? The word, "societal" irritates me. I remember the first time I heard it used, I accused the person who said it of making it up. I also told him that if he was going to make up words, he should make up words that didn't sound so stupid. I know, that was mean. He thought it was funny though and dragged the dictionary out to prove to me it was a word.
    It is still a stupid sounding word, even if it is legit.
    I usually love words, even stupid ones but for some unknown reason I hate the way "societal" sounds. I have just now discovered that I don't even like writing it.
    Does anyone else have words that rub them the wrong way?

    "it is what is,but we are going to move forward.." I cannot stand people(the offending athlete,sportscasters,coaches)saying they are going to move fecking forward..did we expect them to move backward?Basically it means dropping all responsibility for the probable heinous act,forggetiboutit,and move on to the next preposterous situation these guys think is okay to propose..sorry was an athlete, but listening to them parrot words of remorse after they get caught..arrgghhh.. also,just sayin'has run it's course,and I know i have just said it,just sayin,just sayin has to go too..

    No I just like making up stupid words lol. Ikkblekbarg does sound like a Danish word doesn't it? Initially I thought it sounded Hawaiian.
