Becoming irritating to hear

I complain as much as everyone else. We all vent once in a while. We all try to be positive in most situations.

Hearing the expression, "Suck it up buttercup," makes me grit my teeth and have second thoughts of whacking the person who says it or writes it as a response to me and to others.

It sounds consending, uncaring, and a substitute to just telling the person to "shut up" and you don't want to hear anymore from them. It seems to be a cimmunization stopper.. Then that person usually follows their rudeness with whining about his or her situation where you just want to repeat the same line, "Suck it up buttercup," back to them.

We have a person who says this to everyone, thinks she is hot stuff. After saying this to my friend (hurting her feelings), she took over the conversation complaining about how unfair she had it wit her class list. I got feed up and sadly said, "Oh shut up!" And I walked away.

I guess I am tired of hearing that response "-Suck it up buttercup"

I despise it too. I have a long list of other saying that I absolutely can not stand. My list

1. Just sayin
2. Bless your little cotton socks
3. Frosts my cookies
4. Calling kids kiddos, little chickens, little turkeys, babies
5. Baby Talk words like yummy, tummy, potty, especially from grown adults to other grown adults
6. Mama bear
7. Special snowflake

There are many more that I can't think of at the moment.

I know this makes me sound like an angry person. I really am not. I just hate certain sayings, especially the ones that no one over the age of 30 should say.

Did you actually say, "Shut up!"? There is one person I would love to tell to shut up, but I never actually would.

Sadly, I feel like I am going to be stuck working with my person forever, so I try to "suck it up." It is not easy. I think this person would love for someone to actually say something rude so she could cry about it to the bosses and retaliate against that person. Just be careful of that. It might not be worth it to be totally honest. Then again, maybe I am a doormat?

Mine is whenever someone starts a sentence with:

"not to be mean, but....."
"I don't want to be offensive, but....."

You know they are then immediately going to say something hurtful and mean.
If you have to start a statement with those words, then just don't say it.

Mama Bear is the polite version for *in serious need of psychiatric services for numerous personality disorders.

Special Sneu-flay'keh *furture basement dweller and/or frequent flyer through court system. Usually has a Mama Bear and/or Snow plow Dad as a parent.

"Whatever" will drive me through the ceiling. It's the passive aggressive version of *suck it up buttercup.

When a person tosses a "well, whatever" at end of a conversation, I want to round house kick them in the head. If you truly don't care, a suck it up butter cup is better than me explaining an issue and the person tossing up a "well, whatever."

I've come within seconds of just slamming the offending party's head through the other side of their deak.

Yeah...I'm all about sweetness and light....

Mine is, "if you're feeling ambitious, you could do XXXX". Like I am a total lazy a$$ if I don't want to do whatever job/chore you are suggesting?? I work hard enough without you giving me more crap to do. I know they don't mean it that way, and I try not to let it get to me, but one of these times I'm going to say,"No, I really am not feeling ambitious at all, thanks for asking though!" (and I don't always do it, I might say "I don't have time", or "I'll see")

One of mine is "just kidding" after some passive aggressive statement. One of my greatest pleasures since I retired was unfriending and blocking that person. And I'm not kidding!

There isn't very much that I find offensive BUT don't include me in a mass greeting sent to "Friends". At best we're probably acquaintances.

There was an episode where Raymond bet his friend he could say anything to Debra if used a cutesy voice. She didn't catch on until he called her a stinky skank or something like that.

Maybe we could use our cutsey voices to say Oh shut up.

If someone said that to me, I wouldn't have many conversations with her. That just tells me she's not a friend. A friend would never say that. You're right - it does sound uncaring. I don't say "shut up" to anyone either for the same reason. Maybe you could just walk away without saying anything.

DH used to say, "Choose to be happy" when I'd vent. It drove me crazy and totally didn't help the situation. I finally told him, after YEARS of hearing it. He didn't realize how it sounded until I said something. I said it to him the next time he complained about something, and he realized. Now he pretends to listen, smiles, and nods.

Ha, "pretends to listen."

I hate when people try to tell me what to do when I just want/need to vent! I'm sure they are "many" great solutions, but just listen and agree with me. That's all I want.

"I hate when people try to tell me what to do when I just want/need to vent! I'm sure they are "many" great solutions, but just listen and agree with me. That's all I want."

There used to be small but persistent group on this Vent page (I dubbed them "The Official Opposition") who were famous for chiming in with a "You're doing it wrong" response and (predictably) to tell you why the basis for your vent was all your fault. They'd frequently twist what you had written to suit their own anti-teacher agenda or assume/insert facts or details you had not written to support their position. Or they'd ask probing, cynical questions as though totally convinced from the outset that your account couldn't be accurate and that you must be glossing over the evidence of your own poor judgment.

Jazzer-I HATE all of those too. I swear every "high up" person calls the kids "babies" when doing a presentation/training. "...so you can fill in the gaps with your low babies." Gag

Exactly! We have enough of those "twist the blamer" type people in our administration. I really don't need it online. No one is perfect, especially in the beginning. I think of things I did and thought and cringe.

Glad that there is less of that type of thing now!
