Comments:
Great list, especially the last one! ;)
 
As I live in Vegas, I really feel pantyhose. I would also like to add ointment to the list. It is never something good when ointment is involved.
 
Moist.
 
Migraines make my skin crawl, too.
 
Slacks.

I hate that word.

I also hate the word gals.
 
I greatly dislike being called "pal", but being told I "can't" definitely is the winner.
 
How about a non-word?

irregardless
 
I have issues with 'commentator.'
 
"chicken on pizza"

It was hard to even type that.

*shivvvvers*
 
Incentivize drives me nuts. Incent is a word, people. Use it!

Moist is really gross.
 
mis - chee - vee - ous

The word mischievous should be pronounced "mis chiv us"

Another: "supposably." I guess Webster is okay with it, but I'm not.
 
I hate "slacks" but I love "pants." Figure that one out.
 
I understand all of them except "soggy." "Moist," I get, but "soggy" is just funny.
 
Incentivize needs to be here again, but also gotten, deplane (!), trousers, and fart.

I could play this game for hours.....
 
Thank goodness my name isnt on the list! =)
 
I don't like panties. Ew
 
I had a field day with these on twitter one day (#wordsthatpissmeoff)

I especially hate 'LOL'. Why can't you write 'ha'? Its a real word and its SHORTER.
 
Blouse. Goes with slacks. Both remind me of 1970s polyester. ICK!!!
 
#11 is my LEAST favorite word too.
 
Partner, as in "let me partner with the boss on that"...translation, I'm too big of a wuss to make a decision and/or I have no clue what to do, so I'm going to cover my aspidistra, hold on, I'll be right back.

Partner! Hate it!

UP
 
I also dislike "moist" and "irregardless," but have to vehemently disagree that "incent" is a word.

If you look up "incent," the definition is "to incentivize." It's simply a back-formation of the proper term, which is "incentivize." In that respect, "incent" is no more of a word than "irregardless."

Another that bothers me: "impact" used as a verb.
 
I can't (there's that word!) stand "moist" or "panties". God forbid they're spoken in the same sentence.

*shudders*
 
don't think i have ever heard # 3 before.
 
I had to follow your Tweet over to your blog. I LOVE IT... those words make my skin crawl too!
 
kanker

ooze

carbunkle (as in a boil)
 
....laughing at Mo's comment!
 
Funny. I just came across one that I hate...when people refer to Wednesday as "hump day." yuck!
 
Won't.
 
Ahhhhhh.
reading these comments makes me feel a part of a big, weird family.

My word to hate on: squirt.

oh, and khaki
 
What about puce? (revolting shade of dark purpley-brown)

My mum used to wear puce slacks back in the early 80s.

Sorry, didn't mean to scare you like that.

She used to wear lime green slacks too. In public! Horrors!
 
Turd
 
I definitely agree with 'squirt'.

Also, sack. It's just ruined.

I used to work at a place where they would say "ongoingly". Ugh. It still makes me cringe.
 
Oh snot makes me puke....
