Originally born

I’m pretty sure that “originally born” is the phrase that drives me battier than all others.

“Originally born in Chicago”

What? A person is born in Chicago and then gets shoved back into their mother’s womb so they can then be born somewhere else?

What phrase or word drives you nuts?

  1. I’m bothered by a lot of stuff people say – LOL, words and phrases. I hate the word ‘impactful’ – it just sounds so phony. I’m also not particularly fond of the phrase, “My bad.” I use it sometimes, but only because other people do. I always want to ask, ‘Your bad what? Breath?” or respond, “Yes, you ARE bad.”
