Stupid trivial little peeve. I don't like the word "breakfast." In fact, I hate it.

I understand that it's a compound word meaning "to break the fast." Then why not prounounce it BREAK (long a) instead of BRECK? I think it is an ugly sounding word.

I'm sick of the expression "on board" and truly hate it. I'm really beyond sick of it.

I'm sick of the National Auto rental commercial that starts out "You are a business pro." As soon as that comes on, I hit MUTE so fast it isn't even funny!

My neighbor has a lovable pair of French bulls, but the bitch a lot. She has flatulence issues.
