Thread: What Annoys You?

    Okay, it's official: I get to say "Bloody hell!" and Betheny gets to say "Bollocks!" even though we're American.

    I also like the way the Brits use the word "Brilliant", as in:

    keps, BRILLIANT use of "God's nightgown!"

    Don't all Americans pronounce it "few-tuhl"? Or am I not correct?

    Cspine, "spot on" is only really used by ancient people, or snooty people over here, so I wouldn't advise you use it!

    SCI Mom...ok, I'll "allow" you to use the word "brilliant"! LOL.

    The DMV! i just got ANOTHER medical evaluation thing i have to do. i guess they think i can afford to keep going to the doctor over and over again. i'm a paraplegic. that's that. what's gonna happen? am i gonna get BETTER and not be able to drive?????!

    and insurance. i hate it that they start you off as a terrible driver, and make you pay $750 for six months of liability. that's for my car. my truck is in my dad's name and it's only $200 for six months. WTF?? i have been driving for 2 years now and have not had a single accident, not even ONE ticket!! only pulled over once for speeding when the spedo in my truck wouldn't work when i first started driving it. it used to be only(yeah, ONLY!) $600 for six months, but for some unknown reason they raised it $150. AAAAAAAH!

    Keps, not everyone says few-tuhl. Visit the southeast US and you'll hear plenty of "unique" ways to pronounce words.

    What is the British word for soft drinks like Coke, Mountain Dew, Sprite, etc? Depending on where you're at over here, people will say either soda, pop, or just call everything Coke.'s worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    He did, however, start hyperventilating during the crash, when his guy Dale Jr fell back. Thought I might have to let him use my inhaler, lol. He also started throwing his french fries in the air. Some odd southern custom, I guess!

    PS: "Bollocks" always makes me think of the Sex Pistols. What a great record that was!
    You should watch the races, you'd love the lingo, it's funny as hell. For instance, I pitched one back in '02 when Jeff Burton "got up under Sterling Marlin, got him loose and turned him into the wall" at 180 mph , fractured his neck and put him out for the season after he'd led point standings for most of the year. I didn't throw any fries though, I'm not familiar with that custom yet .

    back to the language thing

    just exactly what does LOL mean?
    I kind of get an idea from the context, but I have to say that everytime I see it in posts (and it is there a LOT) it annoys the hell out of me!! Where does it come from?
