Pet Peeve: "Vs." is "versus", not "verse". Kthx.

"So..."

fifthdream: (Pi - Ugh)

Pet Peeve: People beginning an answer to a question - or beginning anything - with "So...".

Example:

Interviewer: Explain to us how you came up with the idea of mustard-flavored carburetors.
Interviewee: So... I was sitting in my basement...

It irritates me a lot, mostly because people who do this do it almost every answer in an interview, and also because "So...." isn't proper used that way.

Feh.
