    This may overlap with the 'Things you hate III' thread but I think it deserves its own category due to the moronic things some people say/post.

    Here's a few to start with, but I could list ten times as many!

    Literally (when not literally)
    Hubby / the wife / the missus
    I'm not racist, but...
    Hun (in any context except historical, eg. Attila the...)
    Love you to the moon and back

    "like" when used instead of a pause
    e.g. "I was, like, going to the shops, like, to, like, meet my friends, like..." etc etc

    Wouldn't bother me as much if limited to Liverpudlians as I wouldn't have to hear it.

    “Job of work” has always annoyed me.

    I don’t like “the group” when used to refer by a manager, commentator or analyst to refer to a squad of players.

    "Know what I mean?"

    (or "You know what I mean?")

    After every flipping sentence.

    A couple of words on forums that i feel are over/misused..
    Deluded- often used when people have run out of useful input on a subject and need to finish things off with the ultimate dismissal.. "you're deluded" How can one possibly come back from that!
    Banter- Normally used when people have insulted all and sundry and need to downplay it or make out the other person is taking things too seriously. "yeah i called your mum a whore, your sister a slapper and you deluded.. but you need to take a chill pill, it was just banter"

    Some things i see often on social media..
    Mainstream Media.. or MSM to the experts- banded about by people who know we are all deluded reading or watching any news that comes from a recognised media source. They would much rather be informed by poorly cobbled together memes!
    Fake news- No doubt such a thing exists but this term is often used when a person doesn't like what they are reading. That doesn't fit my political stance so it's fake news.. put out by the MSM.
    Lastly ive got one "friend" on FB who is a complete conspiracy theory junkie. His latest target is the "Big pharma" Bearing in mind this bloke works in the health industry i find it a bit disturbing that he thinks all tradition medicine is poison given to us by a government that wants to wipe us all out. His answer is that cannabis will cure all the world's ailments. The fact he likes a joint or two hasn't swayed his thinking here at all or caused him be to in any way paranoid.

    "Surreal" is another misused word (not just on t'internet). It is not a synonym for "amazing".

    Can you just?

    Used by poor managers who have no appreciation of how long a job will take. It just allows them to tick and item off their list.

    I've heard 'the group' used to refer to all players, support staff &, presumably, the training ground cat.

    Inclusive in a very twenty first century way.

    But confusing.

    Everyone was a clearer in their role in the Victorian hierarchy.

    Of course, "Little Pharma" has the ability to soak-up the financial hit of failure during the drug discovery pathway. I suppose it could be used for 'generic' manufacturers - those who make the out-of-patent medicines that have been discovered by "Big Pharma".

    Doing what making healing crystal jewellery?

    Actually, I imagine he also goes on about things being 'natural'.

    "What am I like?'

    Normally exclaimed by middle aged women who's husband and kids despise. I had the above at a previous job and every half hour she belted it out.

    "Sleeps" instead of days.

    On that sh*tty facebook group I constantly post about one of the morons is asking how long until Spring. "Just two more sleeps" replies another moron. They're grown adults not 6 years old FFS.

    Likewise, "amazing" does not mean "quite good" or "nice."

    I once had a colleague remark that the glass of water I brought her was "amazing!"

    I really asked her to drill down into what it was about this particular vessel of the most abundant of fluids on earth, which had so struck her.

    see also "duty of care" and "free at the point of delivery"

    Why not just "responsibility" and "free."

    I don't think anyone has ever said this.

    I am desperately trying to stop my daughter put "like" at random places in a sentence and she does seem to have cut down, so there's some hope.

    I hate the stupid ones that become fashionable at work. Popular ones at the moment are "sharing", when people basically mean email, and "reaching out" which is a ridiculous way of saying contacting, but making out it was like this:
