Over Kill on a word!!
« on: January 14, 2018, 05:56:14 am »
To use excessive !  I find it interesting how some words become part of every conversation, do you know of any other than  ( surreal ) ??    and now every thing is Toxic   To me this means toxic "containing or being poisonous material "   I heard a lady at the store today call her sister "toxic"  Over kill on the use of words!  Its funny how people catch on and never give it a break... I sure hope i never get called toxic,  what a insult   >:( >:( >:(

Yes, everything is being called racist or sexist.

Milk has been called racist, and air conditioners and video games have been called sexist.

As i think about those kind of words today,a few words come to minds from 60s decade.

Groovy was one.I dislike the word but it was a biggie in that era.
I also noticed the singing group The Young Rascals enjoyed using the word ecstasy in their song lyrcis.They had it in a least 3 of their songs.

To make a long story short is a phrase used today because of the fear of many NOT listening.

As quoted in one of my answers in some topics here i find the phrase "everything happnens for a reason"really quite ignorant and i wonder if many say it out of trying to keep up with the times or believe it.

I had a friend that used the phrase "whichamacallit".......got to the point is was quite funny...but then really you feel like saying to him,"WTF RU talkin about"?

I agree with Imrbean that "AWESOME" is overused today.

I think that when someone uses words [any words] over and over again drives me nuts.

I still say "cool"  8),  "awesome", and "neat" a lot. Can't seem to stop.

How aggravating is that?

"literally"  especially when they really mean "figuratively"
Soon they'll change the definition because it is so commonly used wrong.  Sad.

I am guilty of doing that with the blah blah blah today.You know why?We want to hurry and explain what we are talking about out of fear of others not listening so we hasten what we say rather go into detail and use blah blah blah.
