    "Action" IS NOT A VERB. "We'll action that piece of business." No you will not.

    "Abundance of caution." It is ALWAYS those three words used when they lock down a school because someone brought a butter knife in their lunchbox.

      The word "trickeration" is symbolic of something that happened in this country. People who used words like that used to be kept in the attic, fed scraps, and forbidden to breed. Now they are on TV.

      I would add all of these words whenever used in a political speech.

        my boss just sent me an email with "the new normal" in it.


        here's an acronym that I find annoying: ty

        you're so grateful you can't even type out "thank you" or "thanks"? I get this in IM and email all the time - not just texts. I also find "thx" annoying, but not nearly as much as "ty".

          Dude, I'd like to add the word "dude". My kids say it all the time. I'd also like to add the words "never" and "always". My kids say "always" and "never" all, er, quite requently as well. I "never" let them have friends over. I "always" make son #2 take the garbage out. I really hammer on them with never and always. I actually think I'm making some headway.

          I don't think "amazing" is over-used, and I love the word "ginormous", which just typing the word puts a smile on my face.

                        The name "Millennial" for the current generation.

                        I HATE this name. It's already accumulated such a negative stereotype (the whole lazy/spoiled/entitled thing invariably has the word Millennial after it.)

                        Plus every other generation got cool names. The Silent Generation. The Boomers. Generation X. And now you have Millennials. It makes me feel singled out like I'm "special" (and not necessarily in a good way.) Makes us sound like a cult or a type of flower. (Which plays RIGHT INTO THE STEREOTYPE!)

                        Can we pick a different name?

                          Fun Fact: The word trickeration started as a mis-speech by former Texas coach/ESPN analyst John Mackovic when he became apoplectic during a highlight package at the fact that Wisconsin had to resort to using a trick play against one of their usual high school-level non-conference opponents.

                              Let's have a dialogue on that.
                              Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
