People who use literally often don't know what it means. for example, "Trump is literally Hitler."

Fitment. It isn't even a word. Something fits or it doesn't. Used way too much in automobiles and guns.

Yes, it's a word, but it's always used improperly, particularly on gun boards where people use it as a fancy way of saying "nicely machined" such as, "this 1911 has the tightest slide to frame fitment I've ever seen."

Definition is:

fitment (ˈfɪtmənt)
n
1. (Mechanical Engineering) machinery an accessory attached to an assembly of parts
2. (Furniture) chiefly Brit a detachable part of the furnishings of a room

This is a particular peeve of Para who has ranted about it in the past, even starting a thread to try to encourage proper use and eliminate the habit of misuse on this board.

It does NOT mean "tight", "finely machined", "nicely finished", "smooth action", "beautiful stock", etc.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Thanks Q; I missed that one. Apparently it's a pet peeve of a lot of people around here.

(That little fact doesn't seem to limit is use, however...)

Disrupt.

Racist: used so often, it means little to me. So tired of its use.

It is a word, but it is usually used incorrectly.

Not a word, but I find this expression annoying - A day late and a dollar short. Razz
