People who end their posts with "namaste".

People who want to be sarcastic but are afraid that someone might think they are being serious and end their post with "sarc", "sarcasm" or "end sarcasm".

The word "xenophobe" used to describe people who don't like to be invaded.

And "special snowflake".

Oh and "puts on flame suit".

A grown man calling someone a snowflake is highly disturbing to me. I don't consider you a well developed adult if you feel the desire to call someone that.

I typically use no worries instead... as people always seem to have problems. The courtesy of how are you doing used to actually be meant as hey I've got time is you want to talk... so it's become just a casual exchange, and the polite thing has turned into not talking about those problems.

In such a manner of people never having the time nor want to have a conversation based on problems then it's rare to start a conversation with the how are you doing.

I suppose if you lead into a conversation with how are you doing? and they do unload and you say no problem after they just went through all that and said thanks with; no problem? It could be assumed there was no listening at all.

But yeah semantics... something really needed to communicate effectively. After helping someone with a load of groceries or holding the door... no problem or no worries, is a just happy to help and be useful.

Easy for that to turn into getting used as well, like ha ha found a rube that does things for free lets burden them up.

Weighs down after a bit, took me years to say... "no" when something was a real inconvenience instead of always dropping everything to help.
