One of my irritants is when people use "surgical strike" (as in air strike) and suggest that somehow it isn't bloody. Having seen surgery first hand, I can testify that it is indeed bloody. So is childbirth, which is not surgery. We are also sometimes guilty of using euphemisms. Deer are not killed; they are harvested. Etc., etc., etc.
