Yes I know our country and the world are in troubled times and I clearly do not have to explain why, but for some reason the word just irks me when I
hear it now.
Im 27 years old so please keep in mind my age when I continue this rant.
Some examples of this which bother me the most is that people use it for an excuse for everything!
Me "Hey lets go get some coffee"
Friend "Its a recession I can not afford coffee"
Do you really need to add recession into that statement???
"Its a recession and Manny Ramirez just turned down a 25 million dollar offer for 1 yr."
"Looks like the recession is not affecting Manny Ramirez and he will wait for better offers"
I am sure I am not the only one who has experienced this and no way am I trying to hide the fact that the world is in economic turmoil.....JUST PLEASE
STOP THE Unnecessary and excessive USAGE OF THIS WORD!! AND STOP USING IT FOR SYMPATHY!!! (which is another way I see it being used)
