    Re: Things people say that irritate you

    I absolutely hate it when some complete stranger, usually a waitress or a fast food worker, calls me hon'. As in, "here's your food, hon'," or "Would you would like anything else, hon'?"

    I'm not your hon'. I don't even know your name. I can understand it a little when some woman in her 60s says it. but it absolutely drives me up a wall when some teenage kid at the drive through window says it.

    No. You aren't.

    I agree. If I hear that phrase one more time I may jump off a physical cliff.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    That made me laugh out loud- I used to work with an office manager who actually said "Physical Year".
    And nobody could bring themselves to correct the poor woman.

    Also when the wait staff calls my table "guys". As in "hi guys, what can I get you guys tonight".

    I don't mind it if its the bar wench getting a round of brews at the local dive, but when I'm paying good money for food, I don't like being called "guys" like they are my best buddy and they're going to wander out to the kitchen to make me a baloney and american cheese sandwich with Miracle Whip on white bread.

    Speaking of which, I don't like it when people call a group of people "guys" when females are included. I also hate it when people say "guys and girls". It's "boys and girls" or "guys and gals". Make up your mind.

    Put me down for hating it when people say "axe" when what they mean is "ask."

    I cringe every time.

    The tendency to think every business name has to have an S on the end. You can shop at Kroger and Meijer, not Krogers and Meijers.

    How come no one knows how to pronounce "realty" and "Realtor?" Hint: it's not "reel-uh-tee" and "reel-uh-tor."

    Only when they finna go to the libarry.
    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    Honest question here about that.

    Are there white folk who say this, besides Marty and Jeff goofing off on the radio? I've only ever heard black people say that.

    I've heard it on the east coast- New York, Jersey, Connecticut, Philly- from plenty of white people.

    I'll have to pay attention more then. I spent plenty of time on the east coast when I was driving and never really noticed that. Around here I've only heard black people say that, but I probably hang around more black folk than the average white guy, so maybe my experience is a bit skewed.

    Yep, in addition to African-American folks, it seems to be a Northeastern white thing from my experience. Billy Joel, in his song "Don't Ask Me Why," whether jokingly or not, very clearly says at one point, "Don't AKS me why."
