sexy is completely inappropriate for work.

Really depends upon the industry. I probably hear this once or twice a week at work. If it were used constantly, then, yes, that would be ridiculous.



I was working on a huge project for a couple weeks recently, and a piece of feedback i kept getting was, "you need make it pop!," "this should pop more," "We need more pop," "that's pretty good, but let's REALLY make it pop!"


I uhh... I've been guilty of this one. Occasionally. I project manage a creative development team. They tell me I do good job with my creative briefs and with ongoing feedback -- always try to be as specific as possible. Sometimes you know that something's not working, but because you're not the designer, you can't always diagnose the exact reason. In my defense, on the rare occasion that I do use that term, I say it in reference to a very specific element not the overall design. Like "The headline should be bolder and more dramatic, but it's being overshadowed by the body copy, it should pop more."

Michael, I would think the word you should object to is "Brochella", not "weird". That being said, "weird" is one of mine. But not in the context you provided. "Weird" is great when used in a positive way like "Keep Austin Weird", but I can't stand it when people use the word to demean or dismiss something they're incapable of appreciating. Like "Ew, Pakistani food is weird" or "[film], [band], [work of art] is weird."

I know it's very widely used, and in the instances you've used it here, most creatives are going to know what you mean, especially that specific examples wherein it's meant pretty literally. A lot of times I hear it it's basically interchangeable with "push it." Both get really overused with frustrating effects in contexts where they really mean nothing though. have the time I'm asked to make something "pop" in an audio mix by a writer, I'll just tinker around for a few minutes and play back the same, unaltered piece and get approval. So often art director and exec creatives really just want to feel as if they've had some kind of input, and don't really even give a shit about the results.

I agree with Rage that "sexy" can be very useful at work when deployed within a certain context to mean a very specific thing.

For my workplace, if I look at printed material going out to the public and it has too much theory-driven, cerebral or overly-academic copy in a small font and not enough color, compelling graphics or other catchy phrases and headers to pull the reader in, I may very well say that it's not "sexy" enough. In that context, it's just the most efficient way to convey a cluster of related problems that my workplace encounters with some regularity, without going to the trouble of actually listing them all out.

So you have no bands in which you enjoy their early material more? Or actors? Or directors/authors/photographers/Etc? i kind of understand why it annoys people, but it's also a valid statement. I mean, Dylan has very discernible chapters in his career. he is a prime example being liked for his early work.

There are "fresas" from Juarez, too. They go to UTEP and smoke cigarettes outside of the liberal arts building's doorway. They also seem to have an affinity for engineering and physics, because they make up the entirety of the tutoring team (save for an occasional, lonely white guy).

Yep, for sure, I’d like to see a return to “yes” or “no” answer values. “Yes Sir”, “No Maam”. Do everyone a favor and give it to them straight. Don’t circle your head in the sky searching for more, swirling around because you want attention. “Look at me talk! I’m on a roll! Don’t you find me attractive and an asset doing this!?”. Like a woman still writing checks at the grocery store. Put your loneliness aside and use a credit or ATM card. No glossing, no sugar coating. Give it to em straight. Present the information as concise as possible. Often that’s just a “yes” or “no”.

I also agree with FrizzleFry regarding "no problem"

With that said, at the end of the day saying "Swag" because of the new popularity of this word definitely makes you a douchebag. If you are using "swag" in the old way it was used, then you might not be one.

It makes you a poor communicator because you are not acknowledging the thanks appropriately. It also suggests that at other times, things ARE a problem.

I disagree. "No problem" isn't acknowledging the thanks, it's suggesting that thanks isn't needed. If my best friend asks me to help him move and thanks me for it, the thanks is unnecessary because helping my best friend is not a problem. If an acquaintance asks me to help them move I would expect thanks because I'm going out of my way and preforming labor for somebody who may not do the same, and in which case I would not say "no problem."

People saying "utilize" when the proper word is "use"

This has been happening a lot more often at work recently and it's really irritating me even though it's not necessarily a sign of a douchebag. They probably think it sounds smart but it is really making them sound dumb.

Utilize means to create a use for. To employ an object or thing in a task for which it wouidn't normally be used for.
If you want to employ some device or tool for what its original purpose is then you simply USE it.

The test of how douchey a word is would be how easy it is to replace it succintly with a more common word or succinct phrase.

"proactive" is pretty efficient, "paradigm" might depend on the context, but is also hard to replace.
