Sound bites: Buzz word slingers

Emotions-annoyance“Sea change” indicates a fundamental transformation with far-reaching, revolutionary ramifications. However, for most buzzword slingers, it has come to mean almost any change at all. It is a term used too often these days. I cringe every time I hear it.

Having said that — another phrase that grates on my nerves. That having been said, I digress.

Please! Stop digressing and stick to the subject. And stop filling time with needless phrases like, “having said that” and “I digress.”

This is a lot of annoyance to unpack. That is another annoying word “unpack.” Now, issues don’t need to be examined, they need to be unpacked. Pack your bags and get the Hell outta earshot (asunder, out of range, yonder).

Do you want to sound hip, cool (trendy, in vogue, all the rage), stop with the annoying buzz words and go back to using simple language, not a catch phrase or the days most popular shibboleth.
