We all have those words that we hear at work, home or just on the street that make us cringe when we hear them. Last year I shared with you some of the words that I would like to see retired. This year i put together another list of words that I would like to not see make it into 2012. Here is a short list that may have some carry overs.
Using text language in every day conversation. ie. “lol” “omg”
Viral. I have to hear this word at least once a week concerning web content. “Can you make this viral?”
Epic. That. Was. Epic.
A-Ha Moment. Your voice starts sounding like Oprah in my head once you say that phrase.
I’m just sayin’. This was submitted by my wife and I agree.
Thanks in advance. Casey and I disagreed on this one. She says that if she can say thanks in advance it is a convenience to her. I guess I want this retired when used by people making requests.
You may think I work with a bunch of teenage girls from the valley based on these next words that I would like to see banned.
cray cray – Did you see that car run into a ditch. That guy driving is cray cray. “Crazy, Crazy?”
whatevs – “Can you meet next Tuesday?” “whatevs” I guess people are beyond saying whatever.
Totes – “Can you meet next Tuesday?” “Totes” Replaced the popular 80’s term Totally?
What are some of the words and phrases you would like to see nixed from 2012?
