    I hate when people use big words to make them sound ambidextrous.

    It's also very discombombulating whenever you hear people trying to be clever like that as you try to figure out what the hell they are on about.

    I think you mean "I require numerous exemplifications of when persons use elongated and complicated verbiage just to sound sagacious but ipso facto sound thick as sh!t".

    Have no examples of such people but hate when some men try to act chivalric but they're really just oleaginous.

    That people who ostentatiously use long words to look smarter only try to show their iridescence. However, we don't know is their soul rich as much as their soul.

    It's quite photosynthesis when people bildungsroman their mitochondrial matrix in the allosteric site to the equivocal lexis of the ganglion.

    It annoys me even more when it’s a simple word like SCHEDULE they can’t pronounce.

    Annoys me even more when people have no idea when to use ‘a’ or ‘an’ 🐸
