The only "Kidism" I can think of is a story my Grandmother loved to tell about me.

When still at highchair age, the family all went out to a really fancy restaurant with "Grammy". When the food was served, the story goes that I yelled from one end of the table to Grammy, at the other end, "But Dammy! We ain't said grace yet!" I was upset because everyone just started eating without the usual family prayer. According to her story, the entire restaurant cracked up laughing.

What an interesting and entertaining thread. I've spent the last hour reading every word, and have wanted to jump in every few minutes to agree. At the start of this thread the question was about sayings of the day that make us crazy. Here's a few of mine.

"My Bad"..what the heck is that suppose to mean? Why can't one just say, "I was wrong"?
"Back in the day" was mentioned. What day?
Using the word AXE or AXED for ask or asked makes me want to chew nails.
But my latest all time most irritating saying is.......
"It is what it is" About the time I was widowed, that little ditty was catching on and it's shocking to me how many insensitive people would use that catch phrase in referring to my loss. Did they actually think that was comforting instead of insulting? Now whenever I hear anyone say "it is what it is" I want to punch them.

I can relate, Kayelle. The phrase that made me grit my teeth after the loss of my wife was; "She's in a better place". I understand what is meant, but think that is an over-used, stock "say-nothing" thing to say to someone who has just lost a loved one. "I'm so sorry for your loss, and please let me know if I can help in any way, even just to talk", is the nicest thing anyone can say in that sense, IMHO.

Disrespect is not a word, therefore it can have no past, present, or future tense. If you wish to express a lack of respect towards you, you say "you are showing a lack of respect towards me." That is proper English You do not say "you are disrespecting me." That's Ebonics!

Disrespectful is a word, but it is an adjective, so it has no past, present, or future tense either.

Merriam Webster disagrees with you Sir Loin. Disrespect - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Gotta do one more kidism.

To my little brother, our snowmobiles were" Rockadoos". Heaven only knows why. He loved to go out rockadooing.

"Frisco".....Everybody I know in the San Francisco Bay Area hates that one. It instantly tells everyone you are not from around here. Alot of people refer to SF as "The city" and I am guilty of that one myself. (nomasayin?)
