No Game Changer

I think this is the thread for rants or annoyances.

I'm probably the only person in the world who hates the words "game changer". I can't put my finger on it, but it's overused and ill-defined. What game are you changing? For better or worse? Why do you get to say? Anyways... I'll never use it but then I won't hold it against anyone, just cringe.

I used to hate "At the end of the day...". It sounds pretentious, we stole it from the British, but it has some meaning.

I wondered if anyone was going to start a thread like this. This could really be a game changer in the Airstream community!

OK, I’ll play. I am so sick of the phrase “no way, shape, or form”. Way overused.

Plus, “no way” gets the job done, and what the heck is the difference between shape and form?

How about “Think outside the box?” Wait a minute. I think Airstream needs to paste this on everyone’s forehead. Let’s keep this one for a while.

Nope, I'm totally with you. I also hate "life hack" instead of knowledge and "side hustle" instead of part time job.

I like the concept. In keeping with the spirit of Airstreaming, how can we apply these trite, overused phrases to our friends at Jackson Center?

While I'm a roll... "associates" for "employees", "guests" for "customers", "user experience" for "can our stupid customers figure out what to do" (I don't have a good substitute).

One of my favorites is “OK, I’ll be honest with you.” What? So, just now you’re being honest? Not really a game changer though..

“Team player” Hit the ground running, It is what it is. Any question that is answered by either “Listen..” or “Well listen….”.

Being old and horribe, everything bugs me now

Great thread. I can’t stand “with all due respect” (invariably followed by an insult!), “I, personally, think” (really!), “let’s circle back” and “we will park this idea for now”. On this forum, I am somewhat tired of “I do not even feel the trailer back there” being used as the epitome of a great towing vehicle. I think I am simply becoming a grumpy old man!

Irregardless, I still prefer my EV selection… ��

Edit: the EV part is true. I just wanted to throw in a grenade with my “irregardless” pet peeve. Lol

Damping -vs.- Dampening

Dampening is frequently (almost always) used when actually meaning damping. You are damping the oscillation, not dampening the oscillation. When you dampen something you are getting it wet. When you damp something you restrict it or slow it.
