This is a question Irrational Hatred

People who say "less" when they mean "fewer" ought to be turned into soup, the soup fed to baboons and the baboons fired into an active volcano. What has you grinding your teeth with rage, and why?

Bullshit management speak WHEN SPOKEN BY A COLLEAGUE OR BOSS.
A couple of weeks ago my boss instructed me about something that had been benchmarked at a broad range and thus was being negotiated further on down the line.

I don't mind the stories of other people, but when it acutally happens on my doorstep ... it makes my stabbing hand itch.

It's funny when they get it wrong, though.
An old boss of mine used the nonsense phrase "touch base" as a verb. "Hi ShinyShiny, can we touch base?" is hateful, but "Hi ShinyShiny, have you scribed(!) up the notes from when we touchbased ast week?" is just funny.

The same guy once sat in a meeting with Plc board level customers and talked for two hours, with a straight face, about how to improve the customer's monthly Drive Brand promotions. Hateful, I know. However, this muppet spent the whole meeting calling them "Dry Bands", like some sort of building material/tampon. So his was the only straight face in the room (the others were either scowling or trying not to laugh).

Yeah, I much prefer it when my girlfriend or friends spout this.
