Polar Vortex. One person wrote, “Wasn’t it called ‘winter’ just a few years ago?”
Skill Set One nominator wondered why we had to use two words for this idea instead of the perfectly good word skills.
*-Nation. Living in Texas I get very tired of hearing about Aggie Nation. For that reason, I agree with retiring this concept. A nominator suggested only a country can be called a nation.
I really don’t have words I dislike although “whatever” as used by teenagers with the rolling and the eyes and dismissive shrug,is probably my least favorite. No, I’m more a grammar cop and hate poor punctuation and “Where’s he at?”
For that reason, I’m asking for your help. Is there a word you hate to hear other people say–clean, please–or that you don’t use because you don’t like it? Please tell me. I’d love to know.
