Notwithstanding

I went to a concert once notwithstanding. We all had seats.

Nevertheless, nonetheless, and notwithstanding all have their places. However, they should be used rarely, except in formal circumstances. They all have meanings that are hard to replicate with a single word, so when you need them, you need them.

I'm also annoyed by the SWMBO term. I understand it's intended to poke fun, but it's patronizing and disrespectful (by design). Some spouses are ok with that, but it seems inappropriate for a public discussion forum. Like a lot of racist/sexist/etc terms and jokes, it might be intended in fun, but the people it's poking fun may not be in on the joke. It makes it a less welcoming environment, whether that's intended or not.

and there is a difference between William and Willam, people! and neither are pronounced Will-uhm.

I don't like overused corporate buzzwords. It's often just a mask for incompetence. When I hear someone who is fluent in "corporate speak" it just sounds like this to me:

"I empower myself by keeping on the bleeding edge of corporate lingo. Leveraging buzzwords is a best practice, and it is one of my core competencies, after all. All my jargon learnings have taken me to the next level, helping me give it 110% and impact the optics of my ego going forward."

Oh, well. I guess it is what it is.
