Listed below are six worn out words and phrases I'd like to see phased-out in 2016. And I'll do my part.
Gotta love (fill in word or phrase) - Gotta love this, gotta love that. Are you happy about something, even ecstatic? Fine, but at least tell us why. It's really hard to love something because you gotta. Be specific.
Getting it done - Think about it. If anyone out there were NOT getting it done... it's a fail. So is this phrase when used too much.
Badass - It's vulgar, it's not polite, it's not professional and it conjures up an unsightly mental image. Unfortunately there's no real synonym for it (except Sick). If you still want to be tagged as vulgar and looked upon in the same context as a dirty butt continue to use it.
Sick - See: badass.
I'm sorry, but going to Disney World for a few days is not epic.
My office - There's nothing terribly wrong with this boast. It's just that it's been used by too many guides, too many times. The same for My commute. There has to be a dozen new, inventive ways to say, "I'm so way better off than you cubicle prairie doggers". You probably are, but let's move on.
Epic - A way over-used term. I'm sorry, but going to Disney World for a few days is not epic. Neither are the photos of your new puppy. Save the word for truly world changing accomplishments. Newsflash: If everything is epic, nothing is.
Granted, the world's small flaws always seem to self-correct. But, occasionally they need a little nudge. Here's the nudge. Another word that’s sneaking up from behind is "Boom!", used as an exclamatory that something just happened when nothing really just happened. If it get's out of control we’ll slap it down in 2017. Like I said, I'll do my part. - WES:::
