Does anybody else hate the over use of the word super. There's got to be a better way to describe your level of excitement then saying "super excited", don't you think?

How about hyper instead?

I’m super annoyed with people and their sanctimonious ways. Can’t have a civilized discussion without personal tangents and baseless broad generalizations especially on social media.

I DIDN'T GET WHERE I AM TODAY by saying "Super" all the time.
Super, CJ

@diabhal it's weird, I loved that series. I bought the box set recently,but couldn't watch it - it seemed so ... Can't explain it. Your reply madee.laugh out loud, woke my dogs up.
For some reason I can watch Dad's Army or Last of the summer wine and still chuckle at them.
Perhaps I wasn't in the mood for Reggie. I'll try again sometime.

I've been guilty of using super; uber; mega; savage and the like. I use a lot of jargon that the young people use because I have a couple of teenish grandkids living here that still like to talk to me from time to time. I also have an 18 year old regularly visiting grandchild

Someday soon they will not have time for me and not long after that they will be gone so if my juvenile language offends the people not related to me, I will survive.

Maybe in the region of the UK, that you are in. I don't hear it that often.

I'm super guilty of this 😟

No offence, but people who say "no offence" before expressing any opinion or thought no matter how inoffensive are also annoying.

that would be superb

I don't say super. I use "really."

1

I super hate it. heh.

Actually, I missed that one...this time. We had mega, mongo...I won't say how long ago. I was teaching when uber, ginormous were..."big"...hehe...

Anything in excess gets old though. Even sex but its been a looong time since I had that...problem.

I agree. What really gets me is "totally." I'm totally upset by the word totally. I totally am.

And don't get me started on vocal fry......

"The word proper has been much in vogue, and very improperly us'd for a few years past, in the country, and in most kitchens in the City, it has crep't also into the houses among the children, Some say, I am proper sick, others have purchas'd something that was proper dear &c..."

FAR Out is still my go to phrase. Outstanding or WONderful. If I use 'super' it is the sarcastic form.

1

Like, totally, super annoying.

I never use 'super'.... what irks me is that everything is either a 'system' or a 'solution' or a 'solution system'. like 'whatever is solving all kinds of problems.

0

...it sounds like 'canned expressions'...or even 'talking points'! Us, creative people, do love original thoughts, but maybe people are too tired to think...sometimes!?

1

I don’t mind super but don’t like the phrase “ on point”

I agree. Super on-point! 😉

2

Don't use super-awesome is what word I use.

1

It super pisses me off! (Joking aside - yes. It's one of the most infuriating verbal trends of all time.)
