I’m sure each of you has a list of words that make you crazy, words that seem to be on everyone’s lips. I’d love to hear yours! My two most annoying words are: iconic (or icon) and awesome! (always followed by an exclamation point). In both cases, these words seem like lazy signifiers, an advertiser who is trying to sound with it and fails utterly. And while we’re at it, have you heard the Ketel One commercial for gentlemen only? I guess women don’t drink vodka. Then again, I won’t drink theirs after being so chauvinistically excluded. What are your word peeves?
