Words and Phrases That Should Be Stricken Part 1

There are words that I hear and cringe. Either because they are dumb, pc, or any other reason. Remove these words from your vocabulary and smite those that use them.

Manilla- as in manilla folder.

Jive- this isn't the 60s

Parity- a favorite word in college athletics among broadcasters

Little people- they are midgets

Chalet- Used to describe glorified tents.  Usually at golf events or corporate events.  Apparently if you use a french word people will things its fancy.

Administrative Assistant- Its a Secretary.  Stop dressing things up to be something else.  This can apply to any job really.  How many fake VPs are out there?

  1. "That being said." Is being said toooooooo many times by toooooooo many people throughout the media...and throughout the country in general. This phrase should be thrown out of use.
