    It is a shame so many folks do not want to know where their food comes from, how is is produced and how that has a negative (or positive depending on what foods you choose) on their body. THIS is why we are a nation of sick people.

    Do you agree Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Batman Begins, Man of Steel, Casino Royale and Spider-Man homecoming are true reboots while Suspiria, Halloween (2007), Elm Street, Robocop, Poltergeist etc. are remakes?

    For me, it bugs me when people do not use the correct spelling of "your" and "you're" or "there," "they're," and "their." Also, it REALLY bugs me when people type "5$" for $5. Ugh!

    I will just say that I am glad the cardi b loving millenial that worked in my department got fired last week.

    Daily it was just a stream of millenial catch phrases, and I am still in a vow of not being reminded of them all.

    People saying ''you smashed it'' meaning doing something good. Smash is the same as break. If you smash or break something it is not a good thing. It is such a stupid expression to describe doing something good.

    OK, I thought 'smashed it' meant something else entirely based on over hearing an exchange between two awkward man children at Target.

    When someone says "Magnificent Seven the new movie is a reboot" and one says "it's a remake" and the other guy says "same thing", well let me tell you something, they are not the same thing but 2 separate things and time for some education from a highly smart film person like myself.

    Sometimes the word "reboot" needs to be retired on film and a few other terms.

    DEFINITION*: verb – to restart (a computer) by loading the operating system; boot again. noun – an act or instance of restarting a computer.

    This word, as the definition indicates, is a computer term and had no meaning prior to the advent of PCs in the home and at work. The term was hijacked by the motion picture industry in 2005 with Batman Begins. With four prior movies produced by Warner Bros., the last of which was an unmitigated disaster, the studio wanted everyone to know that this film was something new and unrelated to the previous series. It’s no secret that a movie series will sometimes ignore a movie that bombed and just move on with the series as if that embarrassing entry never happened, so WB could have done that with Christopher Nolan’s film.
    Personally, I LOVE Batman And Robin, especially Alicia Silverstone as Barbara Wilson (Batgirl).

    I also hate the overuse of the word "sucks" to describe something negative. It's so annoying and unimaginative.

    It may have different meanings. In the UK on a lot of those awful TV talent shows like The Voice, X Factor and Britains Got Talent the judges use ''you smashed it'' a lot.

    Ah. 'Sorry, not sorry' never bothered me before last night. There was a guy on FB trying to 'debate' and he ended every single post with that. I wanted to reach through the screen and smack him - LOL!

    Its an expanding stomach. Why people have to try to be cutesy with it is beyond me. But then again I never understood gender reveal parties, sprinkles and any other attention-grabbing thing when it came to pregnancy. Congrats. You are about to foal. You have accomplished something that the majority of the population has done for thousands of years. You being a general term for all knocked up women.

    I do not mind baby bump because that is exactly what it is, but I hate the rest of that stuff. What is with people having two or more baby showers now too (one for each baby)? Etiquette was always that you had ONE baby shower. If you had like a huge gap in ages then maybe I can see it, but it all smacks of a gift grab to me.

    Oh and the push present, do NOT get me started on that. The baby is your present, you daff, money grabbing, gold digging so and so - LOL!

    Can we PLEASE drop 'dropped'? It's the fast-to-become-an-overused, cringeworthy catch phrase of anything out there.

    I don't like baby bump but it doesn't bother me. I don't get gender reveal parties either, so maybe I'm just past it in this sense.

    Vegan and Paleo diet. Why do so many people feel compelled to beat their chests about this? Why not just eat what you eat and not make a big deal about it?

    I have never heard that "wheelhouse" phrase.

    I don't understand being annoyed by "At the end of the day", because I don't hear that phrase being misused or overused?

    Now, do you mean the acronymns, or hearing these? Because you started this thread strictly about words/phrases you hear. So I can't imagine hearing "by the way" would annoy you, lol (but maybe it does? lol).

    Also: never heard of "downard dog", lol.

    It's like listening to fingernails on a chalk board when I hear people say, out loud, "BTW, LOL and OMG." Don't they realize how dated they sound?

    "'Wheelhouse' is used a frequently in publishing and entertainment -- "The project's not in our wheelhouse."

    "Downward dog" is a position in yoga that has made its way into popular culture and has been partially coopted by those with an erotic bent, but, unlike the pose, the phrase is so cliche as to now be laughable rather than sexy.

    I've never heard of a "paleo diet" but although I'm a vegetarian (not strictly vegan since I do eat dairy) I only point this out to people so they know what NOT to serve me, otherwise it's my own personal preference. The only time I get annoyed is when someone just HAS to ask "Why are you a vegetarian" in which case I feel tempted to tell them it's none of their business but I don't do that because it's rude. I just say it's my personal preference and most people let me leave it at that. If they don't I change the subject because it really is nobody's business. I just hate the way they ask as if you're from another planet or something.

    In fairness, I think many people are just interested in whether you're vegan for health or ethical reasons or both. It's an interesting subject. But I will say I've known some -- certainly not all -- vegans who act very elitist and condescending, as if they're better than other people, when they go on a rant about being a vegan and how it's unimaginable that someone could be so savage as to eat meat.
