Everybody overuses words or phrases I mean.
However, there are some words and phrases that make you sound like a complete moron (especially when an adult is using them) and you deserve at least a kick in the shin if you use them more than two times in a day.
Amazing - Especially when you draw out every syllable. Bonus stupid points for you if it's the only adjective you seem to know. I'm not alone in my disgust. http://jaced.com/amazing/
Going Forward - This is mostly used in marketing. But for some reason, it makes me stabby. (See, no one is perfect.)
Literally - If you don't know what it means, shut the hell up.
Ridiculous - Yes, you are. Now, shut up.
Awesome - (See amazing.)
Whatever - if that's the best argument that you can come up with and you're NOT in middle school, I judge you AND those who spawned you.
That Being Said - This one is for Kayla. It drives her nuts.
Bro - Pasty white kids from the cornfields sound like dorks when they say this. Pasty white adults from the cornfields who use this should not be allowed to breed.
Irregardless - It is not a word. Stop talking now.
Random - Just. Don't.
Again, we all make mistakes, so you're allowed to use the occasional stupid phrase once in awhile (well, except "irregardless," there's no three strikes you're out rule for that one.) However, if these words and phrases make up 90% of your vocabulary, I have to wonder if you were dropped on your head from a very high building. And bounced.
