A clarification my boss requires:

Compromise – an agreement reached between the parties to a transaction, one or more of whom is foregoing something to which they are either entitled to or otherwise intent on.

Compromised (when used as an adjective) – a state of affairs in which a secret is involuntarily disclosed or a secure situation has been disrupted.

I know I wrote this on the previous version of Grylliade, but I'm posting it anyway.

Panties.

That word should be eliminated.

"Comps"

I still have a hard time using the word "Comps" in regard to my work. It just doesn't sound right to call computations or calculations 'Comps'.

I also don't like it when real estate folks use it for comparable properties.

OTOH, I like "Comps" when I am in Vegas.

Of course, they don't distribute many around the penny slots. :)

I don't even like "Comps" then. Call it 'compensations' or something.

In the Vegas case, the term is borrowed from the theater, in which complimentary (free) tickets are called comps. Such tickets are also often called Annie Oakleys because they were typically marked as comps by having a hole punched in them.

I don't hate the word "various" per se, but I hate the fact that students over-use it as some sort of imagined rhetorical fluorish.

On this note, a word I hate so much I can't bring myself to type it, much less say it aloud. Represented graphically:

I'll admit, I often mixed these terms by occident.

For what it's worth, this is actually a dialectical difference sometimes. In England, people look at you funny if you "orient"; in British English "orientate" is correct and "orient is wrong.

On a similar note, "prick" has always bothered me. Not to the degree I can't bring myself to type it, obviously.

"Hubby", the threadstarter, is another good one. "Preggers" or "preg-o", is similarly bad. "Preggers"? What are we, five?
