Words that need to be taken out behind teh woodshed and shot

thread resurrection
 
never start a post with "You DO realize".

it does not convey the intellectual superiority that you may feel when you write it

it does not mean that your premise is actually widely understood

there is a very good chance you will be embarrassed by something YOU didn't realize in return

this is one of those things people say in posts that they would avoid saying in person

that is all

Re: Words that need to be taken out behind teh woodshed and shot

You DO realize that you DO realize is mostly useful AFTER someone has done something ass-achingly stupid, right?

Mostly as a mocking thing.  It doesn't convey that the sender is superior so much that the recipient is deficient.

It harshes my mellow, but fits better here.
"Reach out to" has got to go.
$50 fine for each use should do it.

"mindful" just needs to fuck right off
and "curated" in its current incarnation

Re: Words that need to be taken out behind teh woodshed and shot

to me "mindful" is entirely an Indian word. "Please do the mindful" is the standard phrase, and I see it about twice a week at work, when the Gurgaon team is asking our group to address an issue. I searched for the phrase in Google and this is the first thing that came up.  This is not a racist observation, it is cultural

Here it's all the rage with the social workers and the instrospectionists.

Mindful meditation, mindful reflection, mindful homework, mindful wanking....

Re: Words that need to be taken out behind teh woodshed and shot

Interesting--I'm only familiar with "do the needful," which I both use and hear all the time. I wonder whether there's a distinction or the phrases are just different translations of the same concept.

I think either it must be both or I got confused

Another woodshed term: Get the vaccine into arms.
Sort of clever at first, but millions of uses make it shootable.  Tired of it.

"Inspo" is deffo here in the US of Amero.  Michael's has been the recent culprit including today, but I've seen it elsewhere too

Re: Words that need to be taken out behind teh woodshed and shot

and "deffo" has been going for at least a decade......... but I don't recall finding it as irritating as "inspo" -it's possible even "cray cray" is not quite as annoying.  "Inspo" may need the bayonet affixed just to be sure....  need to nip this in the bud.  deffo.

every piece describing something that someone is really good at now says it's, "in their DNA"

Re: Words that need to be taken out behind teh woodshed and shot

I usually take "in their DNA" to mean something a person can't change, good or bad.
Or at least instinctual.
