    “Let’s UNPACK this” or, “Lot’s to UNPACK here”. Mainly hear it in political talk and discussions. Drives me nuts.

    There aren't a lot of things people say that annoy me, but using a noun as a verb is among the most stupid trends in 'being cool' I've ever encountered. When I hear someone say "I'm too tired to adult today" I wanna slap the stupid out of them, but suspect they'd die before all the stupid left them.

    10 years ago I had never heard this term, now it is suddenly a thing a ton of people say.

    I'm slightly annoyed when otherwise intelligent people improperly use 'less' rather than 'fewer' (there are less people here today - *sigh*), but this is an abomination.

    That said, while otherwise intelligent people have long allowed their desire to 'fit in' to impact their life, this 'noun as a verb' is particularly annoying. We regularly correct toddlers for simple grammatical errors, these adults should be slapped.

    Administer > Administration > Administrate. What's next? "Distributate?" Why do we continually stick "a"s in where they never were before?

    When people mis-use myself and me. Can people not hear that it just doesn't sound right?

    My wife and myself want to thank everyone.
