Susan Lundine of the Orlando Business Journal sees this one blowing in the wind:
The most overused phrase during the 2004 hurricane season in Florida, without a doubt, was “hunker down.” It was repeated by TV newscasters so often, that it became a running gag in our house to eat a Cheeto everytime it was said. We quickly found ourselves Cheeto-less.
Sandra Curtis of Miami, Fla., is fed up with:
The phrase “as well“.
- The traffic on I-95 is at a standstill, and is backed up on the Dolphin expressway as well.
- He injured his leg in the game, and his right arm as well.
- We are offering employees health insurance, dental insurance, and disability as well.
Just listen to the radio, the TV, the weather reports, anybody and everybody, and just COUNT how many times they say “as well”. And usually, it is not a “well” thing at all, but something absolutely awful!!!
What happened to also? Too? In addition?
