I have never heard ‘choiceful’ and I fully support your hatred of this ridiculous word.
I don’t make the rules, story, I just get annoyed when people break ‘em. ;)
YES. Hate ‘adulting’. Being cheeky about being responsible isn’t cute. And usually adulting is describing doing the bare minimum, like ‘I paid a bill so now i’m gunna take a bath bc omg ADULTING, RIGHT?’ Grow up. I can’t even be funny about this I hate it so much.
I’ll own up to being snobby about it! It sounds ignorant. And I hate hearing it come out of my brilliant daughter’s mouth!
I think this is sorta a new thing? previously idioms (that’s an idiom, right?) were mostly used in verbal conversation, so it was harder to notice wrong spellings and such. I’m pretty sure articles have been written about this, but right now the only other one that comes to mind is “toe the line”, with a lot of…
Australians level it up even more with "yeah nah yeah" and "nah yeah nah."

And I will be 57 in two weeks, and feel like I have nothing under control right now, especially in light of what my soon-to-be ex is putting me through. But I do run a household and keep my life and my son’s life together and do what needs to be done, and none of…
I hate all of these. The bumble good vibes only is especially cringey... But at least these men are letting everyone know up front that they’re gonna act like raging assholes and will expect you to put up with their shit with a smile so we can all avoid them like the plague.
My two biggest pet peeves are ‘have availability’ instead of ‘be available’ and, worst of all, ‘inputs.’ Input is already plural! Ugh.
I get excessively angered by people misusing affect and effect. Are we talking about an emotional state or a tangible outcome? It’s not that hard!
[whispers very softly]
OK, one more: “social” used to mean “social security number.”
