Everybody has their pet peeves. Mine is the word “pop” (the verb, not the delicious noun). There’s something about the way it gets used everywhere from backstage at fashion shows to episodes of Toddlers and Tiaras that makes me scream. “This color makes your eyes pop” is a surefire way to make me start twitching. Here are a couple of others I pulled together from an informal office poll:

  • “This complements your features”
  • Fresh
  • “A pant” instead of “Pants”
  • Fierce
  • Dramatic
  • Telling you what “season” you are
  • Anything being the new black

What word do you want to ban forever?
