I like various 'send' commands, like 'home', 'go to bed', etc.
I'll tell you a command that I don't like, and it's just the wording, not the result: load up.
Around here, a lot of people say that when they want their hunting dogs/herders to get into their trucks. I don't know why it sets my teeth on edge, but it does.
Another one that I give Ds the evil eye for saying, is 'man gate.'
The first time that he said it, I asked him what the heck a 'man' gate was. And he said that it was the gate that people went in/out of vs. vehicles or whatever. (notice that it's not 'people gate'?)
Then, he said it about my fence gate. I was quick to point out that they are all gates that people use. Sheesh.
I don't get irritated by speech patterns often, to each their own, but man gate and load up just aren't my cup of tea! I prefer just gate...maybe with additional words like, the west gate. Maybe if people had always said the other, I'd not find it strange.
And, if I want my dogs in a truck or car, I will say up or in, or even just let's go. I might be associating the other with some people that I don't care for, when I first heard it, which was here. I'd never heard it before that.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
