I would appreciate if everyone would take the word “Like” out of the English language.

That’s because it like bothers me when people say I was like feeling bad and it was like the middle of the night so I like got up and like took some like medicine.

Good topic 1972.

My pet peeve is in the advertising world. Seems like every product from cars to deodorant use the word “deserve”; as in “you deserve...”. It panders to what is wrong in our society.

If a hose is by definition a flexible pipe, then simply calling it a hose should be sufficient. No need to add the word pipe.

I have often heard the term garden hose. But I have never heard anyone say garden hose pipe.
