What words do you hate?

The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause. -Mark Twain

There’s a website known as
Plinky where a question is prompted everyday and members respond to it.

Yesterdays prompt was “What words do you hate?”
Among the various replies few were; ‘was like’, ‘OMG’, ‘Shut up’, ‘lol’, ‘Honey, I was thinking’, ‘NO’, ‘could of / would of”, ‘slit’ etc etc.

But do one actually hate the plain gist of the word or is it that the expression or feeling with which that word has been said.
Sometimes even the most beautiful word can hurt you to the core & at times, so called, not-so-good-word can bring a smile on a sad face.

Is it OK to judge a word just by it factual meaning with no perceptive of as why & how that particular word has been used?
