    Default The Things People SAY

    Annoying Speech Affectations

    1) People who say "Hock-Eye" instead of OK. I suspect it's Welsh.
    2) People who pronounce one "wonn" instead of "wun". That's very annoying that isdate

    Up here we can have one, wahn, yin, wun

    all acceptable.

    I was on a cisco course ages ago where the instructor insisted of saying 'simultaneously... and at the same time.'

    misuse of acronyms is almost more annoying than the actual use of acronyms. One guy uses A.K.A in place of every other acronym you could think of.

    My sister alternates between "hysterical" and "too funny" for anything that raises a vague smile of amusement.

    As she's in Australia, I can't slap her.
