I don't know about you guys but I absolutely HATE GUAP, I hear people say this, and I cringe. It's slang for money.

Surely you know at least one American (by birth ... and often a climber) who speaks with a British accent? These people never cease to amuse me.

Lately I am hating on "snowpocalypse." It was funny last year when we had that ridiculous series of storms roll thru the east coast and got unprecedented amounts of snow that shut things down. But the term is sooooo last winter and this latest storm didn't hold a candle to what we got last year.

I hate the phrase "that sucks". To me, it just epitomizes unconcern for the other person.
I also don't like any hip-hop slang like ima, finna, bruh, swag, etc. Complete disgrace to the English language. Hella is hella up there as far as words I don't like, and I'm from Northern California. The same goes for NorCal and SoCal, can't stand them, especially when they're stickers on people's cars.

+100000.

The only thing worse than hip-hop slang is people looking at you strange when you DON'T use it!

Ah man, I'm glad someone here agrees with me. I know how that is. I've always been called "whitewashed" for never being into that slang and the whole baggy jeans fashion. I grew up in a place where most of the other kids talked like that, and I was one of the few that didn't speak "ebonics".

In fact, I have been told I look too well put-together, clean-shaven etc and have been told by a colleague to show up to work unshaven and looking scruffy once in a while. I work in a professional IT environment...

Gotta love how they get offended when you ask them to repeat something because you genuinely didn't understand. Goes for redneck speak as well as ebonics.
