Don'tcha hate it when.... Wednesday

Don'tcha hate it when people call diapers "pampers" and baby formula "milk". What in the world?? Maybe it just bugs me because around my home I am referred to as the 'Grammar Queen'.

What bugs you?


  1. umm, I'm totally loving you're new don'cha hate it when posts... I love complaining!

    Yes, hello, pampers are a BRAND, not what the DIAPER is! I hear you on that one.

    And, as previously mentioned on my blog... don'tcha hate it when they call it pop? It's SODA people!

  2. I do agree, a friend fo mine from high school says Pampers instead of diapers, and that drives me crazy. I never say anything but inside I cringe everytime. I also hat it when people refer to every soft drink as a Coke!! AARRUUHGHGH!!


  3. Sheliza....I am one of those people! I will knock it off ASAP! Lol!

  4. Oh my, picky lol. Well I do say diapers lol, but I also call formula milk. What I hate is when people just ask you questions they know the answer to such as what time is it when they have a cell phone in their hand, a watch on their wrist, and a clock on the wall. Who called when they heard you say the person's name when you answered. Which direction when you are on a one way street. Or when some says huh when you are looking directly at them and you know they heard what you said. I usually do not respond and then when they repeat what I said I go huh just to add to the crazy effect.

  5. I hate that too when people refer to items as the BRAND.

    crayons = crayolas
    maxi pads = kotex
    tampons = tampex
    diapers = pampers
    tissue = kleenex
    glass cleaner = windex

    I can go on!

    Oh and btw, I say pop and couch. I'm not a soda and sofa sayer.

  6. I don't like it when "nappies" are referred to as "diapers". But that's maybe just a British thing. I'll get over it. Soon.

    A pet hate, though, is when people ask questions and yet lack the social decency or basic good manners to listen to and/or engage with the answer. Why would they ask a question - any question - in the first place? Doesn't make sense. These appalling manners are starting to infiltrate the blogosphere, too. Depressing.

    Plus, if someone answers a cell phone (without first apologising) whilst I'm talking with them in person, that's when I walk away. At the last count, I had no friends left. Bummer.

  7. I call diapers "diapies". And it's pop, not soda. But for the record I call it "carbonated beverage".

    My biggest pet peeve deals with improper conjugation. I'm not banning the word "ain't" but I do have issues with "I is" or "Is you." You get the idea.

  8. Did you know that I say adhesive bandage rather than Band Aid? Yeah right!

    I hate when my milk finishes and I still have more cookies in my hand.

  9. Ha! But cookies are biscuits, surely? Man, I'm going to give myself palpitations if I keep visiting these Wednesday therapy sessions of yours.

    I need to get out more.

    Kind regards etc....
