As people tend to prefer one color to another and one dish to another, they also have their preferences for words and phrases they like to hear as well. While there are phrases that please our ears and give us pleasant goosebumps when we hear them, there are also those that make us cringe and feel as if we are going to burst with annoyance when we hear them. These phrases are individual for every person — they can annoy one person, while the other one might find them absolutely normal.

We at Bright Side found a Reddit thread where people shared the phrases they don’t like hearing from others and now we are rushing to share them with you.

  • My ex was (and still is) like this. She’ll say stuff like “I need to talk to you about something. I’ll call you after work.” Like 8 hours before she finishes. So what, I’m supposed to just stress all day, only for you to call me after work about something completely benign? Why not just call me after work without the foreboding message? Now if she does this, I just call her straight away and ask her what’s up. © djAMPnz / reddit
  • It’s not a phrase, but the word “hubby” makes me cringe every single time I see or hear it. © MattyScrant / reddit

  • “With all due respect” is almost always coupled with an insult or unsolicited advice. You might as well say, “Prepare to be disrespected.” © dusty-kat / reddit

  • “This one” makes me irrationally angry. “Happy birthday to this one,” “date night with this one,” “so thankful for this one.” © LuciferVD / reddit
  • “30 [things] that shocked the world. You won’t believe number 6!” © Banania78 / reddit
  • No, I don’t. You can voice your opinion, and I’m allowed to ignore it, criticize it, debunk it, or ridicule it. © Dahhhkness / reddit
  • “You’re gonna have to figure something out.”

    Usually said in an impossible situation that someone else has caused, but expects me to fix. © Washjockey / reddit

I hate when people get offended about certain things that they can choose not to look at.

Someone I know always says "toss my cookies or lose my cookies" when they mean losing their mind or going crazy! Guess they don't know that it means to get sick. Not sure how to tell them.

My least favorite phrase is: Fashion First. I would prefer a phrase like Function Over Fashion. Now, I don't hate fashion, its just we need function way more

Oh, I forgot one of my favorites.
"He was at the wrong place at the wrong time" 😕
If you're at a grocery store and someone comes in with a gun, HE'S at the wrong place at the wrong time.
