I know every generation has its own language evolution and I am in the habit of still using words that were popular 25 years ago (bitchin'!), but there are a few of today's word evolutions that make me nuts! Today's list is the words making me aggro:
Gave ---> Gifted
Found ---> Sourced
Bae---> what does that even mean?
Whenever I hear someone say their friend gifted them a scarf (or whatever) it is like nails on a chalkboard. What is wrong with gave? Gifted is so affected. Also totally affected, saying you sourced your rug at Target. Sourced? Really? The next one that bugs me is the porn-ization of anything. For example, if you go to instagram, if you ad "porn" to your tags you will suddenly become popular. Cloudporn! Cakeporn! Rainporn! Breakfastporn!
Am I the only one who legit does not know where "bae" came from? Imma* find out.
What phrases are making you nuts these days?
*On the list of language evoution I love, Imma is my favorite. Imma post this blog right now.
