When did IM's become DM's?

And the pound-key become a hashtag?

And a waiter become a server?

I am so fucking sick of this constant changing of words.

Who in the fuck died, and made these assholes the word police.

PICK a word, and fucking STICK TO IT!

Does telegram work for you?

You type OLDE, OP.

I still think of # as "the number key", so there!

by Anonymousreply 304/06/2021

There really was no reason to change waiter to server.

In fact, server sounds much more "class-ist" than does the word waiter.

It was never the pound key in the UK, which of course is this £. It was always known as a gate or a hash sign, hence hashtag.

OP, since it seems highly unlikely that you will survive the evening without having an aneurysm, I'll just get straight to the point, and request your stuff. I might also suggest that you light-up a fat splif, and have a few vodka shots to try to chill yourself out. You must be loads of fun to be around

OP hasn't had her suppository yet this week.

by Anonymousreply 804/06/2021

Agreed OP (in general). What's the worst is the new tranny words: Cis, cis-gendered, he, him, the, her, and worse of all, THEY, THEM. For one person.

It's just laughable.

I hear you OP! They keep updating my Jigsaw Puzzle app and changing features all the time! All the navigation used to be to the right of the screen. They changed it now it’s on top of the screen. I don’t like it because it’s not ergonomically comfortable. Really freaking annoying! Why change it when it worked just fine before!

Don't get OP started on those newfangled horseless carriages!!

Aren’t there about 19,000 other threads where you can whine about your hatred of trans, r10? Did you really have to chime in on this one? Did you really? Do you really think that if you fail to bash trans people in every single post, they will win some sort of “victory” over you? Are you really that sad and lonely and pathetic? Are you?

Talk talk talk, it's only talk

Comments, cliches, commentary, controversy

Chatter, chit-chat, chit-chat, chit-chat

Conversation, contradiction, criticism

It's only talk

Cheap talk

Saying someone is ‘colored’ is offensive, but saying a ‘person OF color’ is politically correct.

R19, would you rather be referred to as a “person of size” or as “fat”?

That's the fucking point!!!

There's no difference between IM's and DM's!!!!!!!

IM's came first. So just fucking stick with that!!!!!

When did fellas stopped wearing hats?

Why do I have to ask Clarence’s tech-savvy adopted son to order my Brylcreem from the Vermont Country Store?

And now I hear that great-grandnieces and -nephews look confused when they open their card and find their Christmas present — ten shiny new dimes stuck into slots to approximate the ornaments on a Christmas tree! Is this true?

Jesus Christ!!

No, there is a difference.

Instant Message is something you send when the person is online and they get it immediately.

A Direct Message may not be seen for a while if the person is not on, because it goes into their mailbox, whether they’re currently online or not.

In a word, [R10], mortgages. Code writers have mortgages that must be paid. Imagine, you’ve completed development of your app (formerly, “program”), it works well, the users are happy, but now what? You must still appear busy and productive, you must still earn your keep, so you change it. It didn’t *need* changing but that’s not the issue. Paying your mortgage is.

r17, love the KC reference.

I used to be called "doctor" as I have a MD. Now I am called "prescriber".

Prescribers include nurses who spent 12- 18 months completing online courses.

OP, forsooth! Why art thou so vexed? Speaketh!

That's really fucking depressing, R26.

This entire world and its system is a fucking SCAM.

Given how obese people are these days, THEY, THEM seems more realistic than ridiculous.

I don't think they call STDs STDs anymore. They're called STIs.

You're sound nervous, OP. What you need to do is get a cold one from the icebox.

"He gifted me a book." What the hell was wrong with "He gave me a book"?!

by Anonymousreply 3404/07/2021

to gift

verb transitive

to give a gift which has been purchased online by a frau cube, either shopping during work, in her cube, or lounging at home on a velveteen sofa in comfy snuggy onesie on a mental health day off from work.
