I better stop reading this thread. It is going to make me notice all sorts of things I wasn't aware of.

"I Feel like" starting every sentence. Well you wouldn't be saying it if you didn't feel /think it, now would you, no need to preface the fact that you "feel it". Happens soooooo many times during the workday and everyone does it!

The phrase "I can't even." You can't even, what (ellipses), finish a sentence? wink

Not a phrase but an attitude that drives me crazy. Why am I supposed to adapt to someone else's generational idea that polite conversation is passive aggressive or rude?
But, can a different generation not make the same complaint?

When someone says "no problem", "anytime!", "you bet!", "my pleasure" or so on, I am appreciative of an upbeat sincere response to my thank you.

Why ruin it for yourself by getting bent out of shape about a word or what you deem to be proper? Who has time to waste that kind of energy on something so trivial? If you cannot take the sincerity of the reply for what it is, that is in you, not on me.

That said, in keeping with the thread: 'brag on'. Wha? One brags about, not on.

^This. Language is fluid. The way things are said, and what they mean change over time. I would rather find the fun in it, then get upset about it.

My father used to admonish me for saying something was 'cool.' That was back in 1970. Language is definitely fluid.

How about when someone asks "do you mind if I ....." If you don't mind, the proper answer is no (I don't mind.) Many people say "sure or yes" to "Do you mind"??? So you DO mind.

There is definitely a generational gap in speech and typing. I now get emails from recruiters and messages on linked in with smiley faces in sentences. I'm in my mid 30s so I don't mind it, its a clue into what type of person you will be dealing with.

What I do mind is a select few elder aged individuals I work with that finish emails with, "Thank you..."

Thank you what? The ellipses implies you have something else to say. Are you being passive aggressive?

On the opposite of the spectrum, it seems like 90% of the young people I deal with type "Your welcome" and not "You're welcome". I don't own a welcome, I am welcome. Thanks.

I don't follow how "thank you", especially when not actually spoken (sarcasm or hostility can make any spoken words have different meanings) is ever really passive aggressive. Just sayin.

There are several people within my bank that have the ending of 'Thank You' as part of their signature line. It actually drives me a little crazy. When I say 'thank you' - I want it to be there because I meant it and because I added it to the e-mail.

The generation vernacular works both ways. I cringe equally with the abbreviations and easily offended nature of the youth as I do with the condescending statements made by those older than me. For every abbreviation I deplore I also hate "I need you to step back and reassess" or "Perhaps you should consider revising your current trajectory to."

I don't know what leadership retreat some of our management went to that suggested this nonsense, but it motivates no one.

Yeah, i'm not a fan of any sentence that begins with "I need you to..."

Short of a parent talking to their kid, these 4 words together generally aren't super-appropriate.....
