What was/were the most annoying words of 2013? (Edited 12/21/13 03:31AM by AlwaysSunshine)
I did this poll last year about this time, and quite honestly, last years' selections hurt my ears nearly as badly as nails on a chalkboard.  Or some cow smacking gum.  Or same said cow popping gum.  Or crunching on ice.  I digress.

Here are 2013's selections, as compiled by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

I can't believe I forgot to add "other."  That's what happens after almost 38 hours with almost no sleep.
just sayin'  
#4 | 303 days ago

"Just sayin" drive me absolutely nuts. I see a lot of people use it on The Facebook. Of course you're saying it if you're spending the time to type something out. Why add a stupid extra few words saying that you're saying something..... 
just sayin'  
#5 | 303 days ago

It's kinda rude. The rest of those I'm just used to and/or use them myself.

gluten free - get the f**k out of here with that s**t. i love how the people who have temporarily absorbed their entire life into this (effective) diet fad, all start out with "i just never understood why i felt deathly sick after every meal." whatever whore. i saw you eat all the time and you never got sick.

cupcakes - ohmygodgetoverit.

chevron - can we please pick a new boring pattern to lose our s**t over?

adorbs - makes me want to start a riot

pretzel bun - gross

any word combined with october - that whole month blows now because every commercial is subtober, bocktober, rocktober, trucktober, all-you-can-eat lobstober...go stub-your-tober

jennifer lawrence - she's perfect. got it.

#anything - stop it.

amendment/constitution/rights/freedom - something someone said/shot/aborted/married offended you...again.

I live north of all of you, and I think it takes a while for some expressions to get here.  Most of the political ones mean nothing, so I won't pick them.

HOWEVER, one of the sayings up here making the rounds and pi$$ing me off is "amirite"  One dude even got it on his license plate.  

I watched one of those "saved from the jaws of death" shows last night, and the sister of one of the victims was interviewed.  Every second word is "like" and I muted her.  

I am very guilty of j/s blush

The GOP came up with the term to brainwash the public into thinking healthcare reform and universal health care was something terrible, once again making Obama's life miserable as our President.  Hey GOP, your strategy of blocking everything he tried to push through and then trying to spin it to say "he did nothing in his first term" backfired.  Get over it!

I say "whatever" all the time. "Just sayin'" tends to annoy me when certain people say it, but only because of the way that they say it...I don't know now to explain it.

I'm guilty of the hashtag thing myself, but mainly just on twitter. I'm pretty good about not using it anywhere else (though I think a couple of my pins may have it, when I don't change the caption.) And I love chevrons...only because they look like feather fletching. And I prefer cupcakes to regular cake. Leigh, your post made me self conscious. Also...RIGHT!?

I'm guilty of a lot too.

I was guilty of using the "just sayin" thing but I have quit that.

I hate the whole # hashtag crap outside of Twitter.

"like" is annoying but that word has been used since the "80's", especially once "Valley Girl" was shown in the theaters and on cable tv.

"whatever" makes me want to do Tybo on someone's ass!

"You know" is on that has worked on my nerves lately.  Teddy Bridgewater (and a few other folks I've heard interviewed in the last week) have used it A LOT in interviews.  I counted 12 times in a three minute clip this week.  So now, I want for Teddy to go hang out with the baseball team for a while so they can teach him how to slide without causing Card Nation to cringe.  And I want for him to forget the words "you know."

it's probably delicious, but not everything has to be on a pretzel bun
