I dislike anything about Covid but I also really hate the word, AMAZING. How can everything be amazing. Time for the younger and other folks to start broadening their vocabulary. I am not impressed with Amazing things. Buy a dictionary or do a word search, dud!Ca

Can my computer be amazing? Am I an amazing person? Are you amazing? Is Christmas an amazing time of year? Is Santa Claus amazing? Is the queen of England amazing? Did the Lone Ranger and Tonto do amazing things? I suppose some people would say yes to all those things but I would try to find some new and different words.

Well I could tell you but it is so filthy as far as I am concerned that I can't. It is a word I have never said in my lifetime!
My word is like that, too. Actually, there are 2 words. One seems to be in common use, unfortunately. It is an F word, but not The F Word. I quite like The F Word, although usually I just think it, not say it.

I don't like the word lovely. I have friends who use it all the time.
They make a lovely couple, he is so lovely, she has a lovely house. Your toilet is lovely.
It drives me crazy.
I recently chose "lovely" to use instead of "nice" when referring to something or someone. I still think lovely is better than nice. "Tasty" has Hannibal Lector written all over it. The guy from Australia who visited us for a couple of months said "tasty" all the time. Now my daughter has caught that habit. For once, I didn't.

Tasty...that's a word that makes my skin crawl. Has since I was a kid.

My mom always hated the phrase "that's for sure!" Her friend said it so much my mom wanted to throttle her! Boy, it's hot today. That's for sure! This steak is really good. That's for sure! A-U-G-H-H-H!!! :eek:

instead of" you're welcome" young people say "no problem"
Ok now you got me going. That drives me nutz. Whenever I go into a store, restaurant, or other business and an employee says "nmo problem" after I've said "thank you" I always think "I'm glad doing your job is not a problem for you".

Here's another one that about 95% of the public never notice and won't know what the heck I'm talking about: "is is", as in "the problem is is that ......". I've even heard "what he said was is it's too late to .....".

But "is is". Listen closely to people on TV. Even intelligent and important people say it. Obama could be counted on to say it. It is very common among guests being interviewed on the news and just about everywhere else.

"Female"- when used instead of 'girls' or 'women' in casual speech.
It also occurred to me in the same context I've never heard individuals-of-the-other-gender referred to as 'males.'
Working in the jails reference to the individuals held in custody was males and/or females. There were some people that really didn't fit precisely in either category, the Sheriff's Dept. referred to them as Alternative Lifestyles. Some staff would jokingly refer to them as "altered lifestyles".
