    Variations of "(a) and (B) are completely different from each other", when applied to two items that actually have a lot in common, such as two heavy metal bands, two civilization type games, etc. It's really only a very minor annoyance, but it does seem that a lot of times the two items being compared are actually quite similar to each other in a lot of ways, and that the amount of difference depends on the point of view of the person making the comparison.

    The expression "apples and oranges", actually seems to fit this situation pretty well, since apples and oranges are both fruit, and more similar to each other than, say, apples and milk, or apples and asphalt, or apples and communism.

    HA! You will get the same response people get IRL.

    Sometimes I just lie in my response, I think 1x or 2x I've made up an entirely new country/race and people don't get it.

    On and this doesn't bother me, I just never use them:

    I also don't get it when people say "that's so gay". What does that mean? That something/someone looks like a hot Angelina Jolie look-alike that you want to explore your personal Kinsey scale reading with by having wild sapphic making out with? You think a pair of shorts reminds you of Chastity Bono? What? What does that mean??

    My brother uses the term sometimes so I got back at him. His small furry white dog jumped on his lap while he was driving and I told him, "Dude, you look so gay right now" In this case I think the word was used appropriately. Even he agreed with me.

    I'll admit that I've used this one in the past. When I was a kid it was just another word for "dorky". In my mind it's completely disassociated with homosexuality, so I don't feel bad when I say it, although I completely understand how a gay person may have a rather strong difference of opinion. I've made it a point as an adult to try to refrain from using it, but honestly it feels kind of silly and inoffensive to me. I compare it to the use of the phrases "grammar nazi", "spelling nazi" and the like. It's kind of understood that the word has evolved a second, inoffensive meaning that has nothing to do with comparing a person to an actual Nazi, which would be completely offensive.

    I don't think I saw anyone post this one. "How are you doing," as a greeting. This especially gets me if it is someone passing you on the street. Are you supposed to grab their arm to tell them how you are doing if the question can't be answered in one word? What would they say to you if you said, as happened to be true at the time, "terribly?" It's such a stupid question to ask on the run. I answer it with, "Hi!" Works just fine when I can't say, "fine." (This is a particular problem for those prone to depression.)

    Also IMO and IMHO (I just learned what those mean) seem unnecessary in most cases.

    Me, too. Hate that. I never know what to do.

    I'm not fond of "Take care," either. What do you say to that? "Thanks?" "You, too?"

    I always answer that with "Terrible, thanks. How are you?", even if I'm fine. Once in a while I mix it up with "Fair to partly indifferent."

    LOL. You make me giggle, Tallulah. What parting phrases do you accept?



    Here's one of mine; people pronouncing "exit" as "egg-zit".
