Overused Words/Phrases

[ Edited ]

Are there any phrases and/or words that you think are overused and are starting to bug the heck out of you? The one that is getting on my nerves the most is "curated". For example, "this makeup line was curated by our beauty editor." I just feel it's so over the top and pompous. Also, the word "sweet" instead of "cool". I actually heard a woman who had to be at least 75 years old using it. I laughed so hard I almost fell over.

When people use the term "totally rad" or "amazeballs" multiple times in the same conversation. I just involuntarily cringe.

"Amazeballs" makes me cringe no matter how many times it's been used!

I am so sick of hearing fashion or design people calling everything a "marriage" or a "juxtaposition." They go together. We get it.

 

Also, saying everything is "the new" whatever. 

 

And basically every unnecessary abbreviation. Like, really, you have to say resto? Restaurant is too complicated for you?

"Totes" instead of "totally" and excessively saying "like" in a sentence.

 

What are we, 16 years old (if you are, then all the power to you).

 

I actually find "I can't even" really funny, even though it's overused.

OHHHHHHH! I am currently the worst abuser of "at the end of the day". I had a senior manager I worked for, three + years ago, that used that phrase several times a day. I was so sick of it. Well, about 1/2 a year ago I started using it. And I can't stop. Help me'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never heard of low hanging fruit. What does it mean?

We use this at work all the time.   "We need to expend our efforts on low hanging fruit." Basically just means to go after the easier to get/accomplish things. Urban dictionary says: "Targets or goals which are easily achievable and which do not require a lot of effort."

Re: Overused Words/Phrases

People still use "penultimate" to mean "more than ultimate" but it actually means the opposite.

 

Also, the phrase "a whole nother" makes me crazy.

I remember hearing penultimate for the first time years ago.  I immediately looked it up to find it meant just shy of ultimate, like the second to last episode of a TV show's season.  I am horrified that people use penultimate to mean more than ultimate.  Horrified.

People misusing the word literally.
