Pet peeve

People who form nicknames for others (or themselves) using the first syllable of the person's first name, followed by "ster." Example, Davester.

Secondary peeve for usage of the suffix "meister." It's all sooo early 90's.

I'm sooooo guilty of this! Even the "a-reeno" usage.

It's, like, retro.

Reminds me of the pet peeve I have for anything that is proceded by the word Uber (Uberlicious, uber this, uber that...argghh).
