    Eckspecially - is 'especially' so hard?
     
    Aks ("axe") - as in, "Aks me the question."
     
    Pacific -- "Aks me a pacific question."

    Gaga looked goodgood.  Sang greatgreat.  
     
    The Broncos defense just outplayed Carolina and stunned Cammy.  He could not believe they were not following HIS script!  They were in his face all night (apparently they had not read HIS press), and after they smacked him around a couple of times, he could not think, concentrate or play.  He had a deer-in-the-headlights look in his eyes right up until he threw his spoiled-little-kid-who-didn't-get-his-way tantrums; one in the end zone and the other when he threw himself off the bench onto the sideline and started kicking and pounding the ground.  What a brat.
    Then he capped it all off with a pouty-little-beatch act in the post-game press conference!!  Wow.  What an embarrassment to the Panthers and the good folks of North Carolina.  What a loser.  
    Unsportsmanlike conduct.  The NFL should suspend, fine, and penalize him long, wide and deep for being such a poor role model.

    OH!  Ooooh, ooooh!  Mr. Kotter!  I have another one!!  Ooooh!  Ooooh!
     
    'Boss.'   I ABSOLUTELY HATE this new generation referring to random people (especially ME) by the moniker 'Boss.'  They use it in place of 'Sir.'  In the "old days" it was bad enough that people who don't know you used and overused "Bud" or "Bub" or "Pal," but someone "Boss" is even more annoying and offensive.
    Especially salespeople . . . if you are addressing a customer, either don't use a moniker or refer to them as 'sir' or 'madam' [or even "ma'am"], but lose the 'boss' carp.
    Whenever I encounter that, I tell the offender, "Don't call me 'boss.'"   I've had a couple of counter persons get all huffy, saying something like 'it's just a term of address, dude!'  I tell them it's not, that since they don't know my name (and aren't going to) a term of address is 'sir.'  One of them got surly with me, and made the roll-eyes and smirk maneuver with his cohorts.  I told him, if I was his boss, he'd never treat a customer disrespectfully like that again.  
     
    Rant over.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the Bills.
     
    The stupid phrase I most dislike and find ALWAYS to be the most repugnant example of dysfunctional spoken triteness is "It is what it is."  
    What the H#11 does that really mean?  Can't you competently articulate anything intelligent?  You have to resort to 'It is what it is?'   I had to work with a mental midget a few years who could hardly speak beyond that degree of intellectual acuity.  Barfff.
     
    A distant second is the term "meh."  Really?  Trying to speak or spell out a shrug?  Again, much like above.  Can't figure out how to express yourself?Gimmme a break.

    "Go play in the traffic."
    And, one I heard a lot as a child, "Go tell your father he wants you."
