I’m getting a jump on the end of the year lists. There is little value, but hopefully a bit of entertainment in the one I’ve put together:
My 2013 unofficial list of most over-used words (mainly in HR)
Gen X / Gen Y
These are in no particular order and I’m not planning to elaborate. At least not right now.
I have quietly and discretely started a drinking game whereby you have to drink a cup of coffee every time you read one of the above words on Twitter or in a blog. The result is that I have such a massive amount of caffeine in my system that I haven’t slept in 2 weeks.
I’m thinking of switching over to shots. At least that way, I can blame my eye-rolling and belligerent responses on the alcohol.
I’m not against the principles and concept of these ideas – I’m just annoyed with the over-use, over-application, and over-labelling of these terms. And in case someone is keen enough to want to review my own blog and Twitter stream…yes, I know – guilty as charged.
The difference is that I’m using them in an ironic sense.
I’m #hipster like that.
