Epic - Meaning something great, terrific, awesome. "That new Band of Horses album is epic, man. Check it out!"
Not the actual dictionary meaning, mind you. Can someone tell me when the word "epic" became so popular and so overused? This word needs to just go away already. It's been around since about 2004 and once a word is used in commercials and films, you know it's just bad news.
Epic fail - Meaning a massive disaster. "That date with Jimbo was an epic fail. He picks his nose at the dinner table!"
To elaborate even more on the tedious use of the word epic, the phrase "epic fail" needs to hold hands with epic and jump off of an epic sized cliff together. Enough.
Fail - Used by itself means somewhat of an epic fail, but not as much. Typically the word is used underneath an ironic or awkward photo or video. There are many FAIL websites, cake fails and more. The word just needs to retire to the rest home ...
Just sayin' - When one wants to vent or comment on something, yet kinda feels guilty doing so, they tend to end with "just sayin.'" For example, "Oh man, she dumped you? Hmm. That chick sucked anyway. Just sayin'." This term may have experienced increased usage after episodes of MTV's Jersey Shore. Snooki loves, just sayin'. This phrase is so retro, we were using it as kids. I must confess, I love sayin' it. Just sayin'.
At the end of the day also known via text as ATEOTD - This annoying slang phrase has been around forever. I can't really pinpoint when I first heard it, but I can assure you it was in the work place. "At the end of the day" was often used in the office by cheesy sales guys. "At the end of the day, we can be proud that we put together a quality ad campaign. No smoke and mirrors here."
I'm going to blame JWOWW of MTV's Jersey Shore for this overused term which should have stayed at the office. Overused, time to quit this one.
IDK - Text term for "I don't know." "IDK what movie I want to see, do you?"
IDK is mostly used by young folk. My cousins who also love to use the term KK instead of OK. Why? I don't get that one to be honest. I have never once found a reason to text someone IDK. Have you?
