Any onomatopœia people use in place of the verb "to vomit."

Absolutely hate the "chillaxing" combo, and did hate ginormous when I first heard it as well, but I can't stop myself from using it.

Mostly hate shortened words, or garbled versions:

allot (a lot)
b (be)
ur (your/you're)
wat (what)

Also when people randomly capitalize letters, refuse to capitalize "I."

LIKE
i know someone who uses this all the time (i, like, know someone, who, like, uses this, like, all the time). I just can't concentrate on what she's saying. I just find myself counting the 'likes' and ignoring the other words.

AND SHE TURNED AROUND AND SAID
these conversations annoy me...
"she turned around and said... blah blah blah"
"so I turned around and said.... blah blah blah"
"then she turned around and said....."
I just get dizzy imagining this conversation in which two people are spinning in circles.

RANDOM
Maybe the most incorrectly used word. Most of the time when people say that they did something randomly, there was some logic to it. Random would mean that they had an equal chance of doing ANYTHING else.

finally, LITERALLY
"i literally died when she told me"
well clearly you didn't....

rant over :D

I also hate how many people overuse swear words. They may be okay in serious situations (such as if your friend just got run over), but some people swear so much it'd make Gordon Ramsay blush:

"And I f***ing kicked his motha-f***ing s***head, the sonuva b*** who f***ing stole my f***ing car."

There's more swear words than any other word!

Those two, especially the latter, annoy the hell out of me.

Louge.

As in "downhill street louge", laying on your back
on a big skateboard-ish thingy at 60 mph down
a hill

Louge.....not even sure why, but that word annoys my ears

"louge man, yeah lets do some wild street louge"

louge...it sucks :)

"Stinky". That is such a wretched word. My sister uses it all the time when talking to her children: "Do you have stinky feet?" "Do you have a stinky diaper?" Ugh... It's making me mad just typing it out!

"Dunlap" - Another word I hate (technically a place name/surname, though). My brother used to make me really mad by singing a song where he would continually repeat it.
