Blackboard Words

annoyed.jpgSo I’m editing another auction, this one for model cars, and a nails-on-a-blackboard word came up. “ERTL” Ew. It just pisses me off writing it. ERTL was a toycar manufacturer with the worst name ever. Don’t pronounce it as letters, actually say the word, ew, right? CAN WE BREAK UP THOSE THREE CONSONANTS PLEASE!! “Oh man, i just took an Ertl and it was like trying to wipe pudding off of stucco.”, “My Mom’s Ertl’s acting up, they’re going to have to have it removed.”, “On the charge of Ertling we find the defendant guilty.” But Ertl’s not a real word, but it brings up my mom’s favorite discussion topic. What is your most hated word? Just a word that sends shivers up your spine. I don’t know why but I just absolutely hate the word “Platter.” Ugh, I hate WRITING it. I don’t know why, just one of those words. Can we say “plate” please? And please say “plate” not “pate” as in “bald pate” because I hate that word too. What’s your nails-on-a-blackboard word?
