Pet Peeve Numero Quatre

People who talk to you using their SAT vocabulary or other words that pretty much have absolutely no business in spoken language other than to make other people feel stupid. I can’t think of any example at the top of my head, but it does irritate the crap out of me when people do this.

Granted. They might do this out of respect that they might think highly of me to know these big words. But lots of people don’t, so why even use them at all if you know most people have no clue what these words mean? It’s like trying to learn a new language for the first time. You’ve studied the words, but in actual dialogue, recognizing the word and understanding the word takes a long time and while you’re trying to follow, you feel completely stupid.

GRRR.

If my advice means anything, one or two syllable words are always best.

Kristen Bell. Sorry that Veronica Mars is cancelled. She’s cute.
