Cute girls definitely have an effect on the part of a man's brain that controls speech. Not to worry though Rich, it begins to wear off as you approach 60
I say the word "query" lots - its a medical thing, often written as a '?' in medical notes... So "?(query) pneumonia" or "? cancer"Unfortunately it slips in to normal conversation with me alot - so I end up saying things like "query dinner". It gets some funny looks.More annoying (and infinitely more pathetic) is the schoolyard antics I can't stop using when I speak to a woman I like. If they're just friends the conversation is fine. The moment I start to develop feelings for them all I can do is make fun of them. No wonder I'm single
MM, you are officially sadder than me.
OK, having thought about this for a little while I have come up with the things that make me want to hurt the person saying them..."like" "kinda" and "yeah?" interspersed between other words for no apparent reason what so ever. Especially the latter - it's a question yeah? to make sure you're listening yeah? to this inane drivle yeah?Shuddup already It makes me disproportionately psychotic
I have picked up the word "mate" Darn you Brits and Aussies.
when people ask me how i'm doing i say:"i'll do in a rush"when someone calls and introduces themselves on the phone etc, i'll say:"what's happenin' slappinen?"if someone asks me what i'm doing i say:"i'm just tryin' to get my groove on G"i also say dude a lot... but it's spelled 'dewd'i like chillaxin.... gonna start using that.
Easy piecey - I hate it, but use it. Damn you Jamie Oliver!

No need to be sorry. The Germans have Tim Mälzer for TV chef - THAT dude is annoying! He´s like 500% Jamie Oliver. Scary!
I guarantee it will make you want to put your foot through your TV screen less though.
I rest my case.My kids hate him too, for getting chips and pizza banned from the school dinners menu.
OK, I just realized a saying I use that might be annoying. I didn't even realize I say it until this thread. Since then I've been paying attention to what I say and the one thing that I say that drives ME nuts is "awesome possum". I picked it up from a 19 year old girl I worked with about 4 years ago. It irritated me when she said it but I guess some how it slipped into my speech. Ugh, now I have to gargle something, I feel dirty.
