    many words come to mind but when people go all caps and use improper grammar really really annoys me
    "FUK" and "dat" is probably the worst words ever; no one should consider the use of such words...

    The phrase "could of" rather than "could have" or "could've." Same goes for would, should, might etc. I get that it sounds the same when you say it out loud, but typing it does not make any sense!

    Also, I get confused by and am slightly afraid of the word "jokes" as in "That is so jokes," because it makes me feel like I have finally reached the age where I am too old to use new slang. When a friend of mine said it the other day I cringed inside. I'm only 23! I'm too young to be old!

    I don't know about particular words but I seriously wish people would stop saying 'she wants the D'. It wasn't even funny the first time around.

    i second this, god its annoying

    amazeballs, epic, and i hate when people comment on "OMG 69 people on line SO FUNNY", It really is not funny at all. I don't understand how people find a number so amusing.

    I don't like it when people say 'unconsciously' when they mean 'subconsciously'. If you say unconsciously, I imagine you literally passed out on the floor.

    'Basically' and 'obviously' at the start of EVERY SINGLE sentence.

    The word 'snog' should be eradicated from all of humanity right now.

    There are so many awesome old English words that should definitely be reborn, they are so fun to say e.g to be drunk/hungover - to be philogrobolised. Also love the words 'quafftide' and 'wamblecropft'.
