    Buzz Words You're Tired of Hearing

    I thought I'd start this thread to see if there are others like me that get a little tired of listening to the buzz words that seem to appear out of nowhere.

    All of a sudden everyone is saying the buzz word or phrase, in every sentance they speak that has a totally different meaning than the original word.

    Today, once again, I heard the buzz word that I've heard for the last several months, that I'm tired of hearing.

    Transparent - Transparency

    To me that means you can see through it.

    Anyone else have any buzz words they are tired of hearing?

    I'm over seeing the word "much" used at the end of a questiom.

    Great idea for a thread. On Bach, I am real tired of "amazing," "leap of faith" and "this is the last rose tonight."

    I'm also tired of "no problem," especially when uttered by waitpersons in restaurants.

    I'm sure I'll think of more along the way.

    "How [_______] is that?"

    And I haven't heard the misuse of "transparent" (yet). What is the buzz use?
    The Bachelor/Bachelorette series is a soap opera with unskilled actors, bad writing, and beautiful locations...it even edits the real moon!

    my bad.

    Hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it.

    And it's even more annoying when an adult uses it. I know somone my age (47) who uses it. Drives me over the edge.
    Don't know why you can't still say I'm sorry or excuse me.

    Some that come to mind are--24/7--step up--outside the box--taking ownership--baby momma/baby daddy--it is what it is.

    I hate "step up". I have an instinctive dislike of most sports metaphors used in real life situations, but will concede that a few terms (ie. level playing field and par) are useful in that they get a point across in a few words. But I pretty much hate the rest of them.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.
