    I don't mind that one when it's used to correct a falsehood with a fact, but it's annoying when it's followed by an opinion, although I often use it that way just to be a smartass.

    White supremist. Not only is "supremist" misspelled or mispronounced, as the word should be "supremacist," but it's wildly misused or misapplied. "Racist" and "racism" are words that barely mean anything anymore for the same reasons.

    Jennifer Lopez-yes you look good, are rich, and may or may not be married tomorrow.. I don't care
    Jennifer Aniston - still cute in the face, but needs to accept the fact marriage and kiddos are not for her
    Will Smith and the slap- seriously - let us move on
    Kayne West has mental issues, an needs to address them - but hey it gets him noticed
    I love my Brits, but there are other British folk to gossip about beside Harry and Megan

    Any over-the-hill actress who feels compelled to pose nude or nearly so and post to social media. (I'm looking at you, Madonna.)

    Matthew Perry - yes, we see your tell-all book. Now that you've "told all," please go away.

    "Queen" Consort, Camilla. Just ugh.

    "Influencers." Whoever the hell they are, and also those who are "influenced."

    I just read that Kim K. is getting $200k/month ($43.2 million over 18-years) for child support PLUS the $4.5M home he purchased next to hers.

    That maddens me. It's meant to be an escape from saying anything definite or being non-committal or something, I think.

    "I'm saying such and such is true but the little lilt I give at the end means I might not believe it - plus, I don't even care."

    They are very self-centered and they really don't care and they think it's unfashionable or fanatical to have any strong beliefs about anything. Such people will go along with everything - even with a tyrannical government.... or am I reading to much into it?

    I've known older adults to do it. I'm thinking of one woman in particular who [I think] used that inflection to indicate that she was not finished talking, so it wasn't your turn, yet. The final sentence of her discussion always ended as a declarative and not an interrogative.

    For that one woman only the behavior makes some kind of sense, even though she sounds somewhat rude.

    This one is really liked by the youth. I don't 'like' it incorrectly used either.

    Horrific and Horrendous

    Meant to be worse than horrible I assume, but seems like a combination of good and bad

    Horrific = Horrible + Terrific
    Horrendous = Horrible and Tremendous
