Social Media is a tepid pond filled to its foamy brim with best intentions disguised behind a whirlwind of characters and dancing emoticons. I must ask you something: do you like viewing an overly ambitious timeline powered by overfed and undernourished phrases on social media? Cool, me neither. Assembled below is a *Not so completely serious* list of the top five overused phrases in pop culture carelessly farting around on a social media platform nearest you. You’re welcome.
1.) “You’re a gem”
To a jewelry man, you know, a bonafide rock man, this phrase certainly must make them smile. “You’re a gem” No you’re a gem. I mean it! Seriously you’re a gem. Holy shit a gem just spoke to me. Am I dreaming. Oh my God I’m not. Oh shit. Wow, a rock just spoke to me. Fuck me, was I drugged? You know what? I was drugged, you’re not a gem. Wow that was weird.
2.) “Without you, I don’t where I would be”
This phrase is a fan favorite of Romeo and Juliet, but to me, it invokes a certain obvious question(s): You really don’t know where’d you be? Like not a clue? Not even a hint? No idea? You don’t even have a guess? Do you think you would of been floating around somewhere in the space and time continuum? For the love of lollipops lets agree that you might know where you’d be.
3.) “Literally dying”
4.) “Words cannot express what you mean to me”
On the surface, this phrase sounds deep, but to me, it comes off problematic. I mean what do you think I am? A damn mind reader? Am I right? If words cannot express what you mean than what can? Doodles? Yeah, here’s a pen and some paper, scribble something down, my seven therapists and I will have the time of our life’s decoding this message. Words probably can express what you mean… just a thought.
5.) “I can’t even”
Although this is easily the most addictive phrase to say, it comes off with an air of pretentiousness. I mean the nerve of some people, you CAN even. Dammit…I believe in you
