Phrases that Annoy You

That's the subject of Friday's last segment, and while the word "whatever" doesn't really bother me too much, "it is what it is" drives me up a wall.  "My bad" used to bug me a lot, too.

Our producer hates the line "Who let the dogs out?" though I think it's pretty funny.  When growing up, a lot of my friends dreaded the words "Wait 'til your father gets home."

And back in high school, I think everyone hated "Let's just be friends" - except the person saying it.

Tell us what phrases annoy you.

    what annoys me the most is when people say "it is what it is" because sometimes people are so pathetic they can't even try to change what it "is"

    I personaly hate the phrase "just a minute" or "in a little bit" because they always say it will just take a second but it feels like it takes a century.

    One phrase that really annoys me is "We'll talk about it later," especially from my mom. She should just say no, save me some time.

    I have here my most annoying phrase spoken by my math teacher; "You have done a good work." The next thing you know you have in your hands a -D. "Whatever" is annoying of course and "I dunno" is a real blood pressure riser but I think the first one is the one which makes me wanna punch his nose.

  14. Samantha

    A phrase that really annoys me is "Oh my gosh!" That just bugs me. And like "This is the best/worst day ever!" I don't know why I don't like it. Also "What the hay?" really bugs me! Excpecully the ones that people say and expect everyone to laugh or think that they're cool. Blech!!!

    October 9, 2009 at 9:47 am |
  19. Steve

    I really can't stand the phrase "like, you know." Some people put it everywhere in their sentences, like, you know, just to separate ideas, you know, like it was a comma.

    October 9, 2009 at 9:58 am |

  35. Manuel

    An annoying phrases to me , would be "Whatever" because it's dumb, and just doesn't mean anything, and usually people say it outta anger you, or getting sad, so it is a very annoying word!

    October 9, 2009 at 1:06 pm |
  36. karleigh

    Whatever is not a annoying word o me but I know me too is annoying. My favorite word is 'talk to the hand'. I never said I never say whatever.
    I dont think they should have put those words on cnn student news though.

    October 9, 2009 at 1:29 pm |
  37. malorie

    I think the cross symbolizes the veterans who fought for our country.I don,t think the cross was put up to offend anyone or a person,s religion. Now that there are more cultures and religions and we have to include everyone so it would be fair move it to a different location not on government land so everyone would be happy.

  42. Moises

    I hate it when I'm talking to someone and they'll say something like, "did you hear about the space probe crashing to Mars?" And I'll say, "don't you mean the Moon?"
    To finish this conversation that's quickly getting weird they'll say "same difference." Which makes no sense.

    Whatever is annoying in some occasions but it is mostly annoying when your parents are talking to you and they will get really mad at you! But this is a free country!!!

  60. Alexis

    i love cnn student news and watch it every day and i think the expermint they are doing with the moon to see if it has water is very interesting why didnt they think of this before?now we could get water that way that is if there is any and would lower the amount of fresh water that we take here from earth.

    October 11, 2009 at 11:07 am |
  61. Alexis

    the pharase that annoys me the most is it is what it is because when people say it they try to make them selves sound smart and like they no every thing but to me it is just weird

    October 11, 2009 at 11:09 am |
  62. Mackenzie

    My sister gets on my nerves sometimes when she combines words to describe something. Like one time she called me "Annauseating" which is annoying and nauseating. How can someone be nauseating? She also has these other really annoying phrase like "for cereal". And it really bugs me when she talks in spanish or calls me "kiddo". But the all-time worst phrase ever is "whatevs". Whenever someone says that I just want to scream at them.

    October 11, 2009 at 11:11 am |
  63. Haley :)

    I hate it when people say "no offense" Like, they'll be all like, "hey no offense, but you really suck at volleyball" It just annoys me!

    October 11, 2009 at 11:34 am |
  64. hailey

    I hate the phrase " I know you are but what am I " that one is so old I think it was invented when my great grandma was born....

  66. Beck

    Word! Kids everywhere in Alaska are saying this and it has no real meaning, except to cause confusion. Does it mean you agree or does it mean you think the topic is dumb. Word!

    October 11, 2009 at 9:56 pm |
  67. Amir

    Another phrase I hate but hear frequently from my mom; "Watch when you go, sonny."

    October 12, 2009 at 2:37 am |
  68. Tiffany

    i hate "duh!"

    October 12, 2009 at 5:34 am |
  69. Stephen

    the worst phrase ever is I'm telling.

    October 12, 2009 at 9:19 am |
  70. Audrey

    I hate when you ask someone what they said, and they say "nevermind." I mean, why would I ask if I didn't want to know?

    October 12, 2009 at 9:27 am |
  71. Abby

    the phrase :how come you did not do this but he did

    October 12, 2009 at 9:35 am |
  72. Bella

    one word that i totally hate is "NO" i always hate it when somebody tells me no. and plus another phrase that i hate is when my friend tells me stoopp like she stretches it its sooooooooooo annoying!

    October 12, 2009 at 9:38 am |
  73. Catie

    i get really annoyed when people say "let me think about it" because they usually don't.

    October 12, 2009 at 9:39 am |
  74. Nick

    I was, and still am surprised that the word "like" was not in there. It can be used to show example, but when it is a word used multiple times in a sentence, it is overused, and annoying.

    October 12, 2009 at 11:06 am |
  75. Shelby

    "Whatever" really annoys me because you know that you're talking to doesn't really care.

    October 12, 2009 at 1:19 pm |
  76. Claire

    " be there in a sec." really drives me crazy. they say that they'll but don't come until five minutes later.

    October 12, 2009 at 2:14 pm |
  77. Mary

    because i said so really kills me. it's not even a good come back. and to answer Samantha i love saying blech. in fact i say ublech.

    October 12, 2009 at 2:22 pm |
  78. Nik

    I think Obama should not make school days longer because i bet his kids would not want that. Anyway people struggle for money so taxes would be higher if school days are longer.

    October 12, 2009 at 3:41 pm |
  79. Dreyiss

    I think that it is important that they keep founding the space station because if they are trying to find cures for us as a nation and people we should be thankful for it and really appreciate it.

    October 12, 2009 at 4:14 pm |
  80. Angela

    The phrase that annoys me the most is "Stop asking questions!" because naturally, we all have questions. We can't help it; if we didn't ask questions, would we really learn much?

    October 12, 2009 at 4:36 pm |
  81. shayni

    the phrase that really bugs me is 'its not me its you'. why do people have to say that they could just say your right or something else. i especially hate it when my mom or brother says it, it gets really annoying.

    October 12, 2009 at 7:31 pm |
  82. emily

    The phrase that annoys me is "what ever" beacause the person does not listen to me and does not get the messege the way their soposed to.

    October 12, 2009 at 7:31 pm |
  83. Matthew

    One phrase that annoys me is I will think about it because most of the time they don't think about it.

    October 12, 2009 at 8:06 pm |
  84. Matthew

    I don't like "I'll think about it'" because they necer do

    October 12, 2009 at 8:28 pm |
  85. Mary

    I think that the most annoying phrase is " "with all due respect", "no offense", and a couple of the sayings on the list. Why can't Americans not use slang or anything that isn't really a word.

    October 12, 2009 at 9:49 pm |
  86. anonymous

    it is what it is,I don't know,whatever,Never mind, you wouldn't get it, forget about it, what do you care, why is this your business, whats it to you, be the bigger person, who da thunk it, it cant be that bad, deal with it, and oh well.

    October 12, 2009 at 11:32 pm |
  87. Michael

    i really dislike the usage of the word "blech" its just so agonizing!!!

    October 13, 2009 at 8:27 am |
  88. george

    the phrases that annoy me is "stop don't to that" and "na ah"

    October 13, 2009 at 9:06 am |
  89. J

    One phrase that has annoyed me beyond what I thought was possible, was the word "legit." CNN Student News has a segment on whether something is "legit or not" and ever since then, my fellow student, Eric, has frequently shouted out "legit!" in the middle of class, and incorporates it into basically every thing he said.

    October 13, 2009 at 10:56 am |
  90. Preston

    The most annoying phrase that I get is " I will call you back" few hours later they finally call back, its so annoying.

    October 13, 2009 at 10:57 am |
  91. kerri!!!

    the most frustrating when i ask my parents if i can do something, they say no, and i ask why and they say "because i said so" thats not a reason. ugh. and "just nevermind" is extremely annyoing.

    October 13, 2009 at 10:58 am |
  92. Bree

    I hate the phrase “just a minute” because my mama says it all the time and she takes forever when she says that.

    October 13, 2009 at 10:59 am |
  93. ak.

    A lot of phrases annoy me, but the worst one is 'legit' or something stupid that ONE person makes up that spreads to the WHOLE group of friends. Then it becomes insanely annoying and you NEVER hear the end of it, but right when it gets good& the phrase becomes extinct; ANOTHER ONE POPS UP. oh, and 'jk' reallllllly bothers me! And when people quote movies over and over again. People just need to stick with one term and NOT over use it.

    October 13, 2009 at 11:02 am |
  94. Nick

    Phrases that I don't like change, however I have always HATED it when people say "exactly, you aren't doing anything!" when you are getting in trouble for no apparent reason and you say “I’m not doing anything". Another phrase that I don't like is the phrase "Life's not fair." I don't like this phrase because parts of life SHOULD be fair and can be, and this phrase prevents it from actually being fair!

    October 13, 2009 at 11:03 am |
  95. asia

    One word that really grinds my gears is " wow you would say or do that". that really gets on my nerves because people always say that and it makes no sense? they just do it to annoy me!

    October 13, 2009 at 11:05 am |
  96. Karissa

    Okay there is one phrase that really has to be cut.The thing I hear about 100 times a day is " are you dumb?" Okay NO im not dumb are you stupid? no didnt think so. No one is dumb just some people have a difficulty in subjects. Everyone has a weekness so seriously GET OVER IT that i dont have the same strengths as you. Well i would love to stay and chat but i have to get back to class. bye everyone!:)

    October 13, 2009 at 11:07 am |
  97. caleb ;)

    I dont like the word ligit it's over used way to much and alot of people dont know what it means. 🙁

    October 13, 2009 at 11:08 am |
  98. Patty

    I only have a few phrases that annoy me, one of them being when someone makes a word longer than it should be. For example, “aaaaaaanyway”. I hate it. There is no reason to do that. I also hate it when people overuse the word anyway. I also hate it when people take a quote from a movie and overuse it or act like it is their own. Another phrase that I absolutely loathe is when people say “Oh Em Gee” in daily life.

    October 13, 2009 at 11:38 am |
  99. Belle

    I hate when people say "sup" or something. They just need to say the whole thing
    "WHAT'S UP?!"

    October 13, 2009 at 12:01 pm |
  100. Jacob

    My bad, this is a phrase that my brother uses all the time, nonstop, he doesn't even use it in the right context. He also uses it to adults, which is disrespectful. Also, saying "like" during a sentence is annoying to me.

    October 13, 2009 at 12:02 pm |
  101. Auston

    i hate when people take lyrics from lame songs and then get the sojng stuck in your head..

    October 13, 2009 at 12:03 pm |
  102. syera

    I hate it when people say “whatever”, or when people say chill out. Or chill. It makes me so mad. Or when they say it’ll be okay and it wont, but there just saying that because they don’t want to help you or anything because it’ll take time of theres.

    October 13, 2009 at 12:04 pm |
  103. Draco

    Some phrases that annoy me are old country slang words like “aint” and “ya’ll”. I don’t like it when people say “I hate…” it brings to much negativity into the world. Oh goodness, when people get something off a commercial like that stupid bing commercial they’ll be like “BIIIIINNNG” jeez louiz people. Chill out with the copying.

    October 13, 2009 at 12:06 pm |
  104. Hayden

    The phrase that bothers me to death is definently "That just made my life" mostly because the person that says it says it way to much.

    October 13, 2009 at 2:44 pm |
  105. Haley

    Everything annoys me. I love being back in school since fall break is over with. Some words annoy me but not all the time. I guess I can deal with it.

    October 13, 2009 at 2:45 pm |
  106. Aislinn

    The phrase "your mom" really gets on my nerves. It’s over used and just plain stupid. It’s really not that funny. Most of the time people say it randomly in a conversation. People have been saying that for yrs! It’s about time that phrase goes away like most of them do.

    October 13, 2009 at 2:46 pm |
  107. Kati

    Phrases that annoy me are " I know you are but what am I?" and "no offense". it's old sayings and not funny. it really gets on my nerves.

    October 13, 2009 at 2:48 pm |
  108. Lana

    It really bothers me when someone starts to say something and then they stop and say "never mind"

    October 13, 2009 at 2:49 pm |
  109. alayna

    What bugs me the most is "because I said so...” but it doesn’t make sense to do that. I get that one from my parents a lot. Or “okay, whatever you say...” it makes you feel like you’re wrong, when you know for a fact you’re not on something’s. I also really don’t like the phrase “I know you are but what am I?" I think that was popular when I was in elementary school, but some people still say it to me.

    October 13, 2009 at 2:52 pm |
  110. mason

    Phrases that annoy me are “because”, “yeaaa”, and “it’s nothing”. When someone says “because” it is like them avoiding the question, they think they know everything but when you hear this you know they don’t. It isn’t the phrase “yeaaa”, it is the way my friend JJ says it. The last phrase that annoys me is “it’s nothing”. They say this even if it is something and they just don’t want to say it.

    October 13, 2009 at 2:52 pm |
  111. Joey

    The phrase that annoys me most is its not rocket science because the teachers tell me that a lot.

    One phrase that really annoys me is "whatever" that showed me that the person really DID NOT cared. And I don't get why anyone would say that to someone, unless that was their annoying sibling

    The Phrases that annoy me most is "yahh what she says" i had a friend and everytime i was talking to my teacher she would say yah lol What she says, it gets really annoying, also when someone is talking to you and they say like every other word it gets real annoying so it is like they aren't even talking becuase you can't even really hear what they are saying because they are saying like and you can't process what they are saying, i also don't like when people repeat EVERYTHING

    When I thank someone and they reply "no problem"- that just infuriates me! Why use two negative words, "no" and "problem" when you could simply and more graciously say, "you're welcome"?

    October 14, 2009 at 1:49 pm |
  134. Alex

    "whatever" is the worst there is. When you are being serious and someone just says "whatever" it's just rude.

    October 14, 2009 at 3:27 pm |
  139. Danielle

    "It's up to you". It really bothers me when people say that. Because if you ask somebody what they want to do and they say that....It's not helping at all

  150. Lexi

    I don't like it when my sister says "mmhmm............" It just gets me going. It's like shes trying to make me crazy. She does that when she belives I'm lying. Boys at my school say things like "He's beast boy!" I don't like that much either. It gives the boys to much credit if were in gym, and a boy did a cool thing and then they all start cheering. When a girl does that boys don't cheer. "Stranger Danger!" is another one and then people who do that back up with their feet.

    October 15, 2009 at 11:28 pm |

    October 16, 2009 at 8:15 am |
  152. Lexi

    I don't like it when peple say "It's ok" well sometimes it's not okay. "Whatever" for me it is not so bad, but sometimes it gets annoying if one person uses it in everything they say. I dislike it when people look at me silently; they do that when they think I am lying. (it drives me nuts!) "Don't get your pants in knot!" What? It confuses me because pants can't really be tied in a knot if you are wearing them.

    October 16, 2009 at 8:16 am |

    i hate it when people actually say LOL instead of actually laughing. 🙂

    October 16, 2009 at 8:40 am |

    I get annoyed when I am having a conversation, and people litterally say "LOL". Seriously, you know its not funny when someone just says "LOL".

    Some phrases that annoy me is stuff like "Your mom!" and "That's what she said" or "Thats what he said"

    October 16, 2009 at 9:52 am |
  156. Abby

    Phrases that annoy me are when people say the letters that you would type when texting or typing on MSN. For example, when people text so much they will -say- "oh em gee" and "el oh el" instead of saying something more proper or in a different way. Texting and instant messaging lingo coming out verbally bugs me.

    October 16, 2009 at 11:27 am |
  157. Alyssa

    The phrase that irritates me the most is "I have something to talk to you about....later." To me it's like, just tell me now, instead of making me obsess about it for the next couple hours.

    October 16, 2009 at 1:14 pm |
  158. Ariana

    A word/phrase i think gets annoying is when people say "like" a lot in their sentences. for some reason, that just gets annoying after a while.

    October 16, 2009 at 1:15 pm |
  159. Taylor

    some phrases that annoy me are "You Would" even though i say it all of the time. I also hate the phrase "like" when they use them in their sentences. When people abbreviate their words or the text phrases is really annoying

    October 16, 2009 at 1:15 pm |

    It really annoys me when people repeat themselves. Especially the word "What?" or my name.

    October 16, 2009 at 1:17 pm |
  161. Brittney

    The phrase that bothers me that most is "it is what it is" because sometimes you don't know what they are talking about at times and then you are like what are you talking about and then they get really mad at you

    October 16, 2009 at 1:19 pm |
  162. Kensli

    I personally hate the phrase "that's what she said." Everybody now a days uses it out of context and it's just annoying when people use that phrase to answer every question you ask them. Also i hate it when people say "Girls". Im on the dance team at my school and, to get all of our attention everybody says "GIRLS, GIRLS, GlRLS!!!"

    October 16, 2009 at 1:20 pm |

    One word that bugs me the most is "like' which for some reason people use a lot. One time I counted how many times a girls said 'like and she said it 'like' fifty times which made me laugh.

  174. Siobhan

    The most annoying words are the ones that mix two or more words; "chillax" has got to be the worst so far. Either tell me to chill *or* relax, not both. Another is "ya'll". It's used mostly in the south, where they apparently can't say "you all".

    October 18, 2009 at 1:24 am |

  182. Tamaiya:]

    Phrases that annoy are "Yes ma'am, no ma'am, yes sir, and no sir." I know it's respectful and all, but once one person says it to an elderly, then the elderly people wants everybody to say and nobody really likes to say that kind of stuff.

    October 20, 2009 at 1:37 pm |

    I hate when people say "um" between every sentence.If they have something to say they should say it with confidence.It makes the person they are talking to not take them seriously.

    October 21, 2009 at 6:04 pm |
  193. Kyle

    I can't stand the phrase "Hold on" because they just say it unstead of saying wait, they are kinda saying to grasp something and it just can really confuse people sometimes....Go Carl!!!!!!

    The two most phrases I absolutly hate is "Are you ok" and um my friend asks me if im ok every ten miutes and when a student says um 15000 times in an oral report should get an F i swear!!!!!!!

    October 22, 2009 at 3:17 pm |
  198. Kayla

    "Whatever" and "K" bother me because it shows disrespect towards the person you're talking to. If you're telling them a long important message and their response is "K" or "whatever", it shows they don't care about what you just said. Even if you don't care, at least show respect by saying more than one word. It's offensive otherwise to probably a lot of people. A lot of us are guilty of it though, including me. You don't realize how it feels to be ignored until it happens to you though.

    October 22, 2009 at 4:59 pm |

  202. Andrew918

    I hate OMG and like. When people say OMG they say it like O-–M--G and have this big time gap between every letter. My sister used to say like after every word she said and would take forever to say a sentence. Finally my aunt stopped her habbit.

    October 26, 2009 at 8:51 am |

    I think that " Oh my gosh" should be an annoying phrase because everyone says it and it gets on people's nerves alot. People say it when something exciting or something bad happens. I think it is pretty annoying and you should add that to the list or annoying phrases.

    October 28, 2009 at 10:46 am |
  206. iZamu

    'ohmahgawd!'SO ANNOYING!!!!!Especialy when EVERYONE says it ALL the time. You could use a much more creative phrase than that if you thought before you spoke.

    October 29, 2009 at 7:40 pm |
  208. ribs

    Latey i have realized the phrase "dont worry about it " annoys me the most of all, because when you hear something that you want to become a part of you ask " what are you guys talking about " and they respond " dont worry bout it " you immediately think that the people talking dont want your input in the conversation. Then you get curious and try to figure out whats going on, but no one ends up telling you what goes on.

    A phrase that annoys me is the phrase wait till you father comes home like Carl Azuz said. That’s really annoying because your mom usally says that when you get in trouble.

    October 30, 2009 at 1:55 pm |
  213. Kaili

    A phrase that makes me mad is when people say "nevermind" They'll try to explain something, and if you dont get it the first time they just say, "nevermind". Another one I dont like is "Why cant you just get along?" Maybe you dont WANT to get along wiht somebody. Maybe they've caused enough drama and stress in your life and you just don't want to get along with them. But the MOST annoying phrase to me is, "What do you want?" Oh my gossh. That makes me soo mad. You could atleast say it in a nicer way like, "Oh hey whatchya want :)?" Or something you know? Oh my gosh theres another one. "You know?" Its like nooo I dont know.

    The phrases "Same difference" is my biggest pet peeve. It doesn't make sense– you can't be the same if your different. Another is "my bad". People are always like "Oops! My bad!" First off, it's bad grammar! Secondly, we already KNOW it's your bad. You just said "oops". I strongly dislike that saying.
