Two more words I hate

Conversate- just go ahead and say "have a conversation." I know, it's two whole extra words. C'mon, you can do it.

Orientated - I think the word you're looking for is "oriented". As in "family oriented" meaning being geared towards a family. Not "Family Orientated." Please don't make me come over and conversate with you.

if you use these words, please DON'T tell me or anyone else, and turn over a new leaf starting NOW.

Oh I can't STAND non-words used as words. Except for funner.

I use words that aren't real words when I blog, but, SERIOUSLY, *NOT* when I conversate with someone. Because, honestly, that makes people just sound like ignorrance and I can't stand for it! ;)

"At this point in time" bugs me, what about saying, "now" ?

I don't think I've ever even heard of those two words until I read this, and now I odn't like them either.

I hate it when people are telling me something and they end up with "and so on and so forth." What does that mean??? They wanted to keep on talking, but lost their train of thought? or ran out of what to say but still wanted to hear their own voice talking?

I am slowly learning more and more grammar and seeing how we, as a society, have butchered a language...fascinating.

Who on earth says things like that?! Ugh.

Thank you. Now let's get rid of "nuculer".

I even wrote to W asking him to clean it up(no answer from the White House).

You know what does it for me?

NAUSEOUS.

"Nauseous" means that you cause other people to become nauseated. That YOU are nauseating.

So whenever people say "I'm nauseous," I am simultaneously annoyed and also laugh at them. Because they are making other people throw up and don't even know it.
