Businesses (especially car dealers) don’t hold “sales”, they have “sales events”. What is a sales event? It’s a meaningless phrase because their goal is to sell as many items as possible while trying to imply that the customer is getting a reduced price.
I’ve been watching sports at a local tavern, and I can’t believe the drivel.
I’m sure it comes from the announcers having to fill hours of sportsball with trivia on the players, and recycling the same reactions whenever something happens.
Aside from the usual clichés like “Need to step up” or “Taking this one game at a time” or “They have got to generate some energy here”, it’s professional basketball playoffs now, and one loud commentator loves the verb “to stick”:
“He STUCK that one!”
“Okay… the Warriors need to stick this…”
“The Bucks needs to find a way to stick it to the Celtics defense.”
"I can’t believe he’s trying to stick this from 25 feet out… annnnd… he STICKS IT!"
I hate the term “wifey”. It’s a dopey infantilizing word that reeks of gooey ownership that makes the user sound like a clown. Ugh. It bugs!
Call her your beloved, your dearest, your main squeeze, your heartbreaker, your true love and one and only but not wifey please! At the end of the day, make no bones about it, circle back if you must but say her name not wifey!
