Terms That Annoy Me


A lot has been made of the term YOLO (for newbies, it stands for You Only Live Once) and If you are aware of what’s happening around you or around the world, You’d probably hear YOLO a lot. Notably among teens.

Now most teens use this term or phrase as an excuse to do something stupid. “You only live once. Let’s get wasted” or “You Only live once, let’s jump into this lake” and so forth. Now I’m not a huge YOLO fan. Of the term or the stupidity associated with it. It irks me and annoys me when any of my friends use it.

Let’s it put it this way. If you DO only live once, why would you want to make a rash decision, do something stupid and end up being jailed or worse, break like 10 bones jumping off a building? Plus it’s annoying how many people do stupid shit or do anything that they want to and use the term YOLO to get away with it. I think it’s alright if it’s used as a rarity than a need.

Ratchet according to Urban dictionary means

A diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every mans eye candy. Unfortunately, she’s wrong.

I can’t stand the term ratchet for some reason. Apparently, it just showed up out of nowhere. One day nobody had a clue what it was. The next day? Everyone was using it. Again one of those words kids use because they think it’s cool but it’s annoying. It’s over-used and it’s often used out of context. Random occurrences. Just a really irritating word. I thought we had better terms to call each other, then words like “ratchet” ?

“Guuuuurl. You be Ratcheetttt”    Errr, no. Thanks.


Originally from the Scottish slang word “swagger” which was a description of the way some Scots walk (in a swaying motion), the word was then misinterpreted by the English as “the way someone presents themselves”. Eg, whether someone looks cool.
The word quickly made its way to the states and has ever since become the catchphrase of douchebags and tools everywhere.

Now every wannabe wants to look swaggy, have swag and loosely throw the word swag around 20 times a day, in a gangsta manner to appear “cool” among fellow peers. Sorry, but that’s not cool. You’re just making a fool out of yourself. Cut that crap and get a life, that’s what you should do.

  1. Very cool blog. None of these terms would land one a job at a fortune 500 company. The only one I have been hearing is swagger, who knows what they will think up next. Ha!
