I am going to impose an automatic mandatory 5 year prison sentence on anyone who uses the word literally, when they mean something else.

Whats yours???

I'd do the opposite. Increase it to properly fund social care. Put an end to the terrible discrimination against dementure sufferers - get cancer, heart disease etc, get looked after at the state's expense - get dementure, nothing left for anyone to pay inheritance tax on.

So, irregardlessly of the previous posts, I literally could eat my brain when people turn a noun into a verb, you know, if I had to literalise this , I'd call it verbalise? But I don't literally mean verbalise, to talk. And end on a high inflection? You know? I could care less though. Literally. You know?

You get me fam?

I presume you don't like things being "leveraged" either ? Not easy with that one myself. I can get levering something. Or applying some leverage. But leveraging something ? You what ?

I love leveraging synergies, and leaning into tailwinds in order to pivot the company direction.

Also in business buzzwords I'm hearing:
"Dogs not barking": what will catch us out without warning
"Double click on....." : look a little bit deeper into...

Iirc there was a spoof (psychology?) magazine article published some while ago that was so full of gobbledegook it was peer reviewed and not called out.

People who leave fog lights on when it's not effing foggy. And anyone who's chosen to speak to Steve Bannon in a polite way (however self serving) and those who think that's somehow ok.
