9 Things You Need to Stop Saying
Friends don't let friends say “natch”
Remember when you were 14 and your mom made you stop saying “like” 127 times a day? Fine, we’ll admit it: She was right.
But this is 2015 and the Internet has made us all “totes amazeballs” monsters. If you want to be taken seriously, put these ten done-to-death expressions on your new list of banned words.
I'm The Worst
“I totally ate six graham crackers this morning. I'm the worst!”
There are a lot of people in the world--we highly doubt your carbohydrate indiscretion renders you one of the most offensive.
Friend: "What do you think of this dress?"
Call us ancient, but does “yes” now mean “I love it”?
Soooooo...[to start a sentence]
“Soooooo… I'm thinking about finally breaking up with Renaldo and finishing my degree in microbiology.”
Why act like you were in the middle of a thought? This is a new thought!
“You look so good when you actually do your makeup. Just sayin'.”
Totes, natch and obvi
"I was totes going to read that Times piece on Sotomayor, but then I couldn't get past the paywall, obvi."
You're a grown woman: Don't talk like a 12-year-old.
"My boss literally had a shit fit.”
Unless your boss just pooped herself, you mean "figuratively." Leave it out all together.
"Two-for-one bottles of Newman's Own?! Amazeballs!"
