There’s a meme going around about unpopular words, or words that need to be banned (other than things like “Diversity” and “Evidence-based.”)
Most people can agree on banishing “moist” from our shared vocabulary, but there is another one perhaps more offensive to me:
It’s an innocent enough word, and it hasn’t always bothered me. But as I have gotten older, I have a little less time for bullshit.
If you have bad news for me, give it to me straight up, no chaser. No fluff, and no five-syllable preface, either. “Un-for-tu-nate-ly.” Are you just trying to waste my time here?
How about you?
