My seven dirty words

I loathe reading the following words or phrases:

  • Verbiage;
  • Game-changer;
  • Incentivize;
  • Impactful;
  • Break down (as in, I will break down the Rockets’ abysmal performance in Game 1 versus the Clippers);
  • Outside the box; and
  • Luxe.

These are my seven dirty words. I cringe whenever I see them. They strike me as meaningless jargon.

What jargon words or phrases do you hate?
