Re: Passive agressive, anal etc.

The reason is for fun..to jump on the bandwagon..and being too lazy to study a subject they're not interested in.

Re: Passive agressive, anal etc.

I'm discovering my inner narcoleptic....

Before I nod off again, OP, I think it's cause of the dynamism of the English language in adopting neologisms into common parlance when they convey zeitgeist concepts effectively.

Innit?

Re: Passive agressive, anal etc.

Anal is a bit more palatable than remarking that someone is a walking puckered sphincter of the most unrelaxed kind. Passive-aggressive came into popular use after back-stabber and bitch just didn't seem to cast a wide-enough net, particularly after all these 'reality' shows appear to have made a rather large swath of the population the most judgemental bags of shite on the planet.

It's an interesting topic, but it runs deep and is wholly cojoined with the culture it's attached to.

Re: Passive agressive, anal etc.

Are you suggesting that we first post copies of our doctorate certification before using these terms?

Sure, if that's how like totally anal and psychotic your frame of mind seems to be at this critical junction in your paranoid state of mind.

Very clever. Now for the gold medal be the first person to weave the word "nazi" into a reply without being offensive. Oops I just did it! I win I win.
