    i remember i had just spent £80 on a new dress - and the girl who i was with who dresses like a hippy and hates anything 'mainstream' was like "no offence but that was such a waste of money youre going to look just the same as everyone else, im not being mean id just be a bad friend if i didnt tell you it made you look ugly" and i got in a stress. and aparently because she had said 'no offence' at the bginning i had no right to..
    OMG! no offence but your 'friend' seems to be an idiot lol

    Overuse of "actually". I find this a midlands thing, prevalent in students. UGH. "oh moy godd, that is actually massive" They say it as if the adjective is invalid if "actually" isn't used before it :mad:

    And anything that comes out of students mouths.

    Oh and "Oh my life" as opposed to saying "Oh my God", both of which are as annoying as each other.

    "It's raining outside" - just in case the person thought it was raining inside.
    "New and improved" - how can something be both new AND improved?!
    "Pre-booked" or "Pre-ordered" or "Pre-reserved" - what's the difference between booking and pre-booking?!
    "Quantum leap" - the SMALLEST leap possible.
    "PIN Number" - that gets me, a "Personal Identification Number Number" and similarly the "HIV Virus".
    Also, if somebody says "I'm going on holiday" and they get asked "oooh, are you going anywhere nice?" as if they might reply "no, I'm going somewhere bloody horrible"

    I think that's enough for now - I was trying not to repeat any.

    when people say "apparently" about everything, as if its like only a rumour when its obviously true!

    also, when people shorten down words in sentences like blates or obvs...what is the need?

    Anything jafaikan.

    Anything that's supposed to mitigate any possible offence from the subsequent sentence yet somehow making it seem more offensive than it would be anyway.

    Internet phrases SAID OUT LOUD.

    I bottled it at the last moment! I thought that as the summer is passing, and the fact that I've already been on my holiday, I won't really get the chance to wear them somewhere without looking like a tit. Therefore I settled for some cream chinos instead.

    "no offence but..."
    WTF
    Of all the annoying phrases, this has got to be the most annoying one ever! Someone can say that and I'm already offended.
