Yes! And this is coming from someone that grew up in Queens.

I am also amazed at our apparent disdain for "You're welcome" Even on NPR. No one ever says it. Ever. Thank you for being on the show is answered by "thank you for having me" or "no problem." Go ahead. Listen to NPR and tell me I'm wrong.

One of my pet peeves also. I think the scale is sliding more towards "you're welcome" in this area, but I still get the "no problem" about 1/4 of the time. A couple years ago it was 3/4 of the time.

"Social justice," there's no such thing. It's a pinko codeword for redistribution of wealth & rights.
"African-American," or any other hyphenated American. Either you're American, or you're not. Color & origin are not & should not be issues; but assholery & duchebaggery are.
Regards, GF.

Gah! That and 10AM "in the morning"
All I can think is "are you sure? You didn't mean 10AM at night, or 10PM in the morning?"

1. Orientated really bothers me too, and the Army cannot stop saying it.
2. It actually is a word and means literally to face the east. (The Orient)

But the Army likes to put "...ize" at the end of everything too, which I think is worse. I've never been able to figure why we go to the range to zero our weapon but we zeroIZE our radio. Ruggedized is another. I was once told to be careful because the coyotes were domestitized.

What does PWLIHTRA stand for?
People Who Like Inventing Hard To Remember Acronyms :-)

I hate when the abbreviations we use are more difficult to remember than the phrases themselves.

Example: SWMBO, ROTFLMAO, SMH
