Words and phrases that need to go away.

Literally. Here is an example: “I was so mad my head literally exploded!” No. Your head did not literally explode. If it had literally exploded, we would not have to listen to you abuse and destroy the English language. Do us all a favor and literally stop talking. Forever.



I could care less. If you can care less, then that means you actually care for, at least a little, whatever it is that you are talking about. Let me provide you with a very simple visual representation of what you are saying and what you should be saying. We will look at “I could care less” first:

Just Kidding. Example: You unknowingly say something incorrect and someone corrects you. You respond by saying “Just kidding!” Demonstration:

Why would we intentionally equate the middle day of the work-week with anything unpleasant?
