Like, whatever

"Whatever" is the most annoying word or phrase in the English language, according to results of a recent poll.

Other annoying contenders include "like" and "you know what I mean."

The article got me thinking: Is there a word or phrase you hate so much that you'd drop a date because he or she says it?

At the risk of losing some faithful blog fans, I'll admit I still can't entirely stomach y'all.

(Not "you all," as in readers, but as in the term "y'all.")

Repeated use really bothers me, and I appreciated when Donald Trump recently criticized an "Apprentice" finalist for relying on the word.

I'm a y'all hater. Guilty as charged.
