    Quite; I think "preggers" is meant to sound quite "high class".....maybe I am wrong

    Too right

    No, there are thousands of us.
    We ll why would you?:biglaugh:(joking, of course)

    Other ones...."myself" when "me" or "I " would suffice; "myself, I hate people saying 'myself'"

    Damn, I can think of loads of examples as I am typing, and when it comes to posting, they vanish......

    "archaeological evidence for the Bible" - it is a moronic phrase that exudes incompetence.

    Rather akin to another one I dislike, when someone is asked something about themselves. "Well, me personally..." - well, of course YOU personally, you cretin.

    "...But I mean that in a good way."
    'You must have the Holy Spirit in order to understand it."

    any phrasing that basically means: I am older therefore I am right.
    any phrasing that means: I have more education/experience than you therefore I am right.

    When people argue against something because the odds are so high, even when pointed out that the odds are irrelevant after the fact.

    using words to mean the opposite of their definition. I.E. fat, bad

    Announcers who claim there is no score. There is a score, zero to zero.

    "Ohhh Snap". That irritates me. One of my friends used to say that all the time.

    This maybe is a bit silly, but "How are you?" is a question that is often trotted out, robot-like.

    Maybe it is fine to ask someone whom you regard as usually being in good heath, but the answer I usually give is : "Do you really want to know ?"

    Worse yet are the idiots who think that anyone is really interested and then go on at length about their fungal infection or genital warts.

    Indeed. I know people are trying to be polite and all that but yikes. "Too much detail! Make it stop!"

    The things you hear when you do not have a garden hose handy, eh.

    The number one Pet Peeve statement for me is:

    9. Can I ask you a question? (Um... you just did. It is strange how often people look at you blankly when you respond with a variation of, "Since you just did, odds are high that you can make it two for two. Give it a go, eh."

    I hate that one, too.

    I say that alot. It's kind of in between, "Haha!" and "I'm sorry". Because, really, I'm not sorry, but I do feel the need to acknowledge my fault.

    I hate all those, too.

    And this one.

    I hate that one enough to make me restless and want to cause physical damage to something.

    That's annoying, too.

    I've never actually heard anybody who uses "like" all the time, except in movies where they specifically parody/make fun of that particular habit.

    You have no idea how lucky you are. Imagine Don't Worry Be happy constantly being played as you hear nails being dragged against a chalkboard continuously while
    <insert person you want to bludgeon to death with any nearby object here> goes up to you in the most annoying voice imaginable saying "Golly Gee Willikers" as drops of water inevitably fall on your forehead.
    Now multiply how angry you would feel by ten.

    This is a conversation with somebody who uses like and totally as if they were punctuation.

    Its not as bad as *** (as said). In fact, using IM lingo in normal speech is a great way to get me to try to bludgeon you with something.
    Its actually easy to be in a conversation with me. Unless you continuously use those phrases. Or say something annoying which I never realized ****** me off.
    Why is the W T F acronym censored?

    I hate people who care about the way other people talk. I mean if someone wants to say like all the time let them.
    Maybe they get equally annoyed by the smug arrogant people who have to use an extensive vocabulary because they think it makes them look intelligent when in fact it makes them look like a stuck up prick just because mummy and daddy were rich enough to afford private schooling for them and they didn't have to live on benefits.
