Words and Phrases That Bug Us
Merriam-Webster just announced the new words for 2018, there are 840 new entries. Some of the more popular ones include:
Hangry: "irritable or angry because of hunger." This is especially true with young kids or younger acting adults.
Bingeable: "having multiple episodes or parts that can be watched in rapid succession." I've been binge watching "The Closer" recently even though the show has been of the air for about 10 years.
Time Suck: "An activity to which one devotes a lot of time that might be better or more productively spent doing other things." That's what happens to me when I get on Facebook. An hour has gone but at least I know what co-stars didn't get along on the set.
You can go here to see the rest of the list. Sadly my words "Pavlov Dog" and "Love and Giveation" didn't make the list.
So that's Merriam-Websters new words and here are other words and phrases that should be avoided:
Don't start a sentence with the phrase, "Well, my therapist says..." I also think, "Well, my former cellmate said...", should be avoided too.
Don't call anyone you've ever dated 'crazy'. Although if you've never dated anyone that was "crazy" then maybe it's you.
Don't ask anything too personal about them, no matter how curious you are. For example, "What’s wrong with you?"
Don't use a coupon. I say bring a coupon with you. If it doesn't look like there will be a 2nd date or you don't want another one then you might as well save some money. Who knows she might find frugalness (my word that might bug you) appealing...I doubt it though.
I can't tell you what to do but I certainly can tell you what not to do. Remember this is worth what you paid for it.
