- The term oriental : Nothing cracks me up more than when people refer to a person of unidentifiable Asian descent as "Oriental" Of course, it's not proper or polite or politically correct to waltz up to somebody and ask what their race is, but...people, I'm not "oriental", LOL. I'm Asian, yes. Not "oriental". I'm not a rug LMAO!
Okay, now you go! Post *one* pet peeve, please. Otherwise, we'd clog up this whole thread with petty, little annoyances, hehe.
