Most Annoying Things People Say That They Think Are Cool

The Top Ten
1 Swag

Hate this phrase! Whatever happened to pointing out someone's confidence or coolness, not swag? It sounds stupid and is one of the most irritating words in the English language. With this and YOLO being really popular words nowadays, it makes me think that perhaps Newspeak isn't such a bad idea after all.

I think this is a true list because it's dedicated to Modern Nickelodeon trying to be hip and cool.

This word died out in late 2013. It's almost the end of February 2017 now.

Tell me about it. Every guy in my school says swag


I’m in the auditorium in school and the teachers are explaining something. All of a sudden this kid gets up screaming YOLO half way through!

You made this word popular and have dumbed down the English language in the process.

In the bus line, one bus was leaving and some kid wrote YOLO on it... it was creepy.

People please find it deep in your hearts to stop saying yolo

3 What does the fox say?

THIS IS FOR HEROS OF OLMPYIS BY RICK RIORDAN FANS ONLY U WONT UNDERSTAND IT IF U haven't READ DA BOOKS! headcanon: Frank hated when people said "what does the fox say? ". whenever somebody said that, he turned into a fox, said something in fox, then turned to a human and said "that's what a fox says." and walked away.

On youtube I saw something with Something like this: How do you feel about What does fox say. I say It's annoing which I also don't get it.

I know what it says. It says shut up and stop asking me this annoying question!

Everyone at my school is saying this. I think it's funny though.


Use it in texts! Not in real life conversation because and Oh My God both have the same syllables!

Every word in "Oh my God" is one syllable. So saying is not an abbreviation.

Damn teen cliches. - PuppyLove123

, this shouldn't be on the list!

5 Hashtag

Look. The hashtag is pretty much everywhere. You see it on ads for backpacks, bowling places, restaurants, drinks, and news sites. You also see it on protests, organizations, and meme contests. I'm also starting to notice that even merchandise for children are getting into the act. When people try to say like for example, "#whatever," it makes people feel unsure about if the person is being obsessed with social media. This is especially if the person saying hashtags is a girl. We need to get rid of the hashtag. It's resutling in public fatigue.

To Be Honest with you, This Monstrosity was the WORST thing that's happened to Social Media. Before this 'craze' existed, There were movie trailers that said (and maybe still said today) "It's the #1 Movie in America! " Guess what it Used to mean? Yea, "Number"! And it was Less Annoying! If You said: "#BallGame", It translates in the Pure English Language to: "Number Ball Game", You see? It makes you sound Idiotic! It also makes you sound like you're trying to use Math in terms of coolness... (I just hope this Trend Dies...)

Instagram and Twitter (but mostly instagram) are turning "cool" people into narcissists with all the selfies that they take. Hashtag is what started all of this commotion and they're pointless! For example, #PeopleAreSoAnnnoying can be said as people are so annoying. Get a life because hashtag isn't one!

To be honest this is more annoying than swag and YOLO combined. I have never liked it as hashtag once. I preferred it as a symbol for number. In fifth grade my elementary school PE teacher was obsessed with hashtags. So our field day theme was oh yes hashtags. Argh this hashtag craze drives me bonkers.


Boy, do I hate that abbreviation? In fact, I loathe it because its fanatical support for humor. And I'm not a humorous person. Hell, I hate funny things and people.

If I have my own website and I notice "LOL" posted on it, I'd delete it and ban whoever posted it.

It is brutally annoying. It turns me off in a conversation. I just usually ignore them because they sound not so intelligent.

It should only be used if you actually find something humorous.

Eh, I say it sometimes when I found some online thing funny.

7 Your mom

What is the actual point and meaning of this. And what if someone's mom is dead? Who ever started this is gonna slowly start an anarchy

People say this all the time. Here is something they say: "Bill Nye, your moms a guy! " Or when you ask a question like Who? They say your mom. That's getting old.

A phrase so passé and clichéd that it makes some of the other things on this list look far less cringey. It has no wit and isn't even a clever insult. It's only appeal is to idiots who wouldn't know intelligence or wit if it punched them in the face. Or rather if their mom did. Lame.

I used to hear the boys at my school say this. It was annoying.

8 Shut the front door

Old peeps are always saying this when they try to be funny. Plus, people try to make an unfunny joke out of this when a door is open.

My sis made an object show and said "Your challenge is to shut the front door! " LOL

I'm getting quite bored of this joke. It's crap and it's not even good.

Some of my teachers used to say that

9 Your Face

Yeah whenever people say like the word ugly in a sentence they're like you're face :///

I do this with my step brothers all the time but not on the internet lol

Your face is annoying.

This is crazy annoying. 😐

10 That's what she said

Funny at first, but now is so overused that even AIDS is arguably much funnier than this.

My friend says it to me all the time pretty annoying

But "The Office" made it ironically funny again.

The Newcomers

? Sus

I hate hearing this stupid word all the time! I kinda wish Among Us never got popular.

? Gay
The Contenders
11 Kill Yourself

It’s still a terrible thing to say, even if it’s cliched.

12 Word
13 Beast Mode

This is a 2005 word.

Real beast's don't go around taking selfies of themselves and saying they have a "mode" a beast is a beast through and through, you men who work out in order to take a selfie are just bitches.

14 Hiss
15 Hooplah!

This comes from Rocky Horror Picture Show and it's "Equal" Shock Treatment, so it's cool, to us.

SpongeBob and Peppa Pig anyone? (That lil fish and Daddy Pig said that)

Yes this is cool. It's from Rocky Horror and Shock Treatment. So it's cool.

This came from two very popular cult classic movies so it's cool

16 Rad

The last time this word was even REMEMBERED was the night begins to shine - Stakamakataka

It's not frequently used these days.

Who even says "rad" anymore

I don't really hear it anymore

17 Selfie

Annoying and Steals Your Privacy. What Have You Done Social Media! Now Hackers can Ruin your life if they wanted to! Thanks! :P

Anyone else noticed people trying to look like they are taking selfies but they take stalker-ish pictures of strangers?

I don't understand why people like taking pictures of themselves so much.

They'll always be self-portraits to me. As it should be.

18 Savage

It actually means wild, fierce, and barbaric

19 You're mad cute

If I'm gonna say this to someone, I say "I think you're cute." or something like that. Mad cute is bad grammar.

When people call me this, they usually call me adorable, not "mad cute".

20 Kids in Africa would've eaten that

This is just racist! Not everywhere in Africa is poor! There are starving kids everywhere! And it is just offensive how people are calling Africa poor. And how will eating food you don't like fix that problem?!

Whenever someone says this the first words that come out of my mouth are shut up.

Is it wrong that I burst out laughing when I read this?

Just because htb destroys expired food doesn't mean you need to protect the kids
Why would you give them expired food?

21 Gangnam Style

Get rid of PSY
Get rid of PSY
Get rid of PSY

22 Salty

Raven's home ruined this, swag, YOLO, lit, and many others - Stakamakataka

24 21

Since when is the legal age 21 anyways?

This is why I hate the number 21.

#21IsDead pass it on

This stupid meme actually ruined my favorite number, and it’s on 19, 9+10=19

25 Lit

You know what needs to be lit now? Those pants you're wearing, let me get a match.

I still say this

Travis $cott: "It's lit! "
