This is this year's list:
- Baby Bump
- Shared Sacrifice
- Man Cave
- The New Normal
- Pet Parent
- Win The Future
- Thank You In Advance
Some of these are definitely overdone. Other words, like amazing, I don't know.
Maybe I don't pay enough attention. If it's from reality people, that would be why. I don't watch reality shows. "Amazing", isn't it?
But, I hate baby bump and man cave.
What is trickeration?
I thought I'd come up with my own list. This week's Ten Things Tuesday is Words and phrases that are overused.
1. True Dat
Also known as true that. It is slowly going away, but not fast enough. What's wrong with "that's true"? Not hip enough?
2. All natural
Poop is all natural. That doesn't mean it's good for us to eat. Natural used to mean something good. Now it is just a marketing gimmick.
3. "Friends" on social networking sites
Sure I have plenty of people I know on facebook. People I am related to or went to high school with. Would I classify them as true friends? No.
I am starting to see and hear it everywhere. Well, not the news yet. That is how we know it's been way overdone- when a news anchor uses it.
What started out as a simple spelling error has turned into confusion for me. It was supposed to be Own and got spelled Pwn. So, you write Pwn, say Own, and it means you were beaten and that someone owns your ass or you are the one that owns it. At least that is what the Urban dictionary told me.
Does calling the national healthcare bill Obamacare annoy anyone else? I don't care whether it is liked or not. That moniker just bugs the shit out of me.
It is supposed to be a snub on members of the Tea Party movement. I just think it sounds really stupid.
What I hate about this is that a lot of people seem to think that faith means that you believe in God. It can be that. However, the meaning is having trust in a person or thing and not needing proof. You can have faith in a lot of things, it doesn't always mean you are closer to God.
9. Verbal diarrhea
I REALLY wish people would quit saying this. Every time I hear it, I visualize shit pouring out of that person's mouth. I can really do without that.
I am seeing it posted all the time on Facebook and in emails. The Pledge of Allegiance was stopped in class because they didn't want to "offend" someone. I will say Merry Christmas and I don't care if it "offends" someone. I don't mean to "offend" anyone. For God sakes, let it go.
More often than not, I think it is the person saying it that perceives the offense. PC gone a muck.
What words do you think are used too often or are just sick of hearing?
