About This Quiz

When a guy describes your shoes as "delicious," does a shudder run down your spine? If your mom calls something "cray," do you feel embarrassed on her behalf? Or are you "totes amazed" that anybody would object to such phrases?

In this quiz, we want to know which words make you groan. Everybody hates at least a few common words, either because they refer to things that are gross in real life, such as "mucus" or "phlegm," or because they have a childish ring to them, like "hubby" or "preggers." Some people despise clever millennial slang terms like "AF," while others can't stand words that strike them as pretentious, like "curated" and "artisanal."

Interestingly enough, the type of words you detest may depend largely upon your age. Older people are often repulsed by "buzzy" business slang and millennial internet talk, while younger people are confused about why you'd ever say "parental units." Teenagers may be disgusted by out-of-date slang, while people in their twenties feel more tolerant of abbreviations than other groups. But do you hate the same words as other people your age, or were you born in the wrong generation? The only way to find out is to take this quiz!
