I found this gem while perusing WordPress and figured my readers would enjoy it as much as I did, though it’s not exactly grammar related.
And let’s be honest: You use some of these, don’t you? Maybe? Just one? I haven’t, but, you know, this is just how the young ‘uns talk on social media nowadays. Might as well educate myself.
Thank you TonysBologna for sharing:
“I don’t know how I got so lucky”
I don’t know either. Do I credit your luck to your collection of rabbit’s feet? Perhaps you grow a garden of four leaf clovers? Hell, maybe you even sniff Lady luck’s underpants in your free time YOU PERVERT. The greatest mystery in the world is how did you get so lucky? The world may never know.
Nooooo! Say it with me: noooo!
(In reference to the starting word on a caption of a photo)
Because starting a caption with “Because” is completely unnecessary.
“That moment when”
That moment when you read this on social media and your eyes start to roll into the back of your head. Holy shit, your eyes rolled into the back of your head…you’re having a stroke! You are immediately rushed into a hospital where as fate has it, you meet a nurse named Tammy; you like Tammy. She has brown hair, subtle perfume and the wit of a cracker jack. You fall madly in love with each other and elope to the mountains of Transylvania where you both become vampires and terrorize the villagers. What a great moment, what a great memory.
“Sometimes you gotta”
Sometimes you gotta write an article about the top five overused phrases on social media.
Seriously – you just gotta!
***Please know that this piece is intended for satire. I have personally used each and every one of these phrases and I’m essentially making fun of myself*** Please feel free to comment, share and tell me what your top overused phrases on social media are. Make me laugh, make me cry, and tell me how I got it all wrong.
