CRINGE, CONTINUED

From PATTY BURCH, JOHN CLEM, and LES:

Patty sent the BLOG article "IF YOU WILL" (CLICK HERE to read) to her friend John Clem. He responded:

Patty,

Here are a couple of new-ish clich├ęs that often infiltrate conversations with younger folks these days. I cringe when I hear them.

These two are at the top of my verbal refuse pile

"Going forward" when they mean the future.

"Reach out" when they mean talk to

John

Les contributed: "How about GIVE A SHOUT OUT!" and "THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' 'BOUT!"
