    Actionable

    Actionable.  Worse than the C-word, but you can say it in public. (It doesn't even get the spell check squiggly!  That is beyond pathetic.)

    Best Practices

    Did a consultant come up with this one?  I think the answer is yes.  Right along with "benchmarking".  At least no one has converted "best practices" to "bestpracticing" yet.  How can there be best practices in a work group of five people, all under thirty...

    Needy

    I said to a dear friend recently that I don't like the word 'needy' and I never did explain. Let me give it a go... The word needy brings to mind poverty of the old days, the financially needy. Skinny kids with patches on their clothes. The needy, that needed donations just to...

    I'd Like To Speak To That Point -- Gdi!

    No!  No!  No!  My mom even says this one.  No one speaks TO a point.  They speak ABOUT a point, in favor of a point, or regarding a point.  We speak TO other people.

    "speak To"

    I know, it's two words. I dislike having someone say "we need 'to speak to' this problem". We speak to other people. We speak about or of problems.

    I'll answer it but I don't like it. People who know me know that I prefer they call before they come over. People who don't know me seldom get through my front door.
